David Jason insists Only Fools revival ‘just wouldn’t work’

OHMYGOSSIP — Sir David Jason has insisted an ‘Only Fools And Horses’ revival “just wouldn’t work”.
The 83-year-old actor – who appeared in the iconic sitcom from 1981 to 2003 with Nicholas Lyndhurst, 62 – has made it clear that a reboot of the programme isn’t on the cards.
Speaking with Radio Times magazine alongside Jay Blades, the pair were asked if an ‘Only Fools and Horses’ revival was possible, to which the 53-year-old TV star said: “Oh, I’d love that. I want to be in it. I could be a long-lost nephew.”
David quickly added that he believed a reunion “wouldn’t work” due to the loss of the sitcom’s creator John Sullivan – who died in 2011 – who he described as a “magician”.
He said: “You’d be long, long, long lost if you appeared in it.
“I’ve had offers over the years, but without John Sullivan it just wouldn’t work. He was a magician and could whip up humour out of virtually nothing – that was his genius.
“Without him, I don’t see it working, sadly.”
Despite his insistence on the show staying in the past, David emphasised it was a ‘privilege” to have appeared in ‘Only Fools and Horses’, and commented on his status as a “national treasure”.
Speaking to The Times newspaper, he said: “Being part of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ is a privilege.
“I know how much it has meant to so many people.
“I hope I never take the title ‘national treasure’ too seriously – I call myself the ‘leg end’, but it’s humbling that people see me that way.”
The actor also admitted he hadn’t watched his co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst in the Paramount+ reboot of ‘Frasier’, which made its comeback in October 2023.
When asked what he thought of Nicholas’ performance as the boozy professor Alan Cornwall on the show, he said: “Winter evenings have us hunkering down in front of the fire and watching television.
“I haven’t seen the reboot of ‘Frasier’ yet with Nick Lyndhurst, my old co-star from ‘Only Fools and Horses’, but I’m sure he will have done a great job.”
