Arthur is different class than Del Boy.

Del Boy was sentimental, where as Arthur wouldn't even give his nearest & dearest an even break.

Probably the greatest character to be created on British TV.
Report Hayden May 17, 2021 4:28 PM BST
The only thing they had in common was both being loveable rogues , individually Del Boy wasn't the sharpest tool in the box but Arthur most definitely was.

Surprised i appear to be the only person on planet forum to like The Thick of It , was an extremely adult comedy but great viewing imo.

some minder episodes are comedy gold especially when the policemen(Chisholm,Rycott and Jones) became more involved.

My favourite episode is the one with the syrup.

The one where Terry had to give out horse tips using public phones and he roped in some woman and  gag of local kids to guard them.

Also the one where a much younger Brian Cox guest starred and he and Terry had one almighty punch up on  a london bus, it was brutal and remember this would have been on at 8 o'clock back then.

Probably too old a show for many on here but probably my number one was;

"Not Only...But also", featuring Peter Cook and Dudley Moor better known then as just Pete and Dud. Some of the one on one sketches were brilliant and well worth a look on you tube especially the one were Dud (with only one leg) applies for the role of Tarzan. Alias Smith and Jones were a later take on this. Good but not a patch on Pete and Dud.

The "Benny Hill Show" made me laugh but was so un PC it would not get an airing these days.

"Auf Weidsein Pet" would be another in my top 5.
