    Re: Open All Hours

    I have all Open All Hours & the sequel, Still Open All Hours saved on my Hard Drive. Still Open All Hours has the storyline that Arkwright is dead & gone, and Granville, who has since grown up into the image of Uncle Arkwright, has inherited the store.

    As well as the better known programmes, such as Open All Hours / Still Open All Hours & Fools & Horses, David Jason was also the title role of Frost. Furthermore, he took a slightly lesser part (often unrecognised as being him) as the character Blanko in Porridge.

    In my opinion, David Jason is probably one of the best actors ever to come out of the UK. Whenever he takes on a role he becomes that character, unlike most other actors who simply put themselves forward as themselves simply reading a script (Sean Connery, for example, as a Russian submarine captain, with a Scottish accent - one of the worst actors of all time).

    Not a fan of "Still Open All Hours". God, what is that Cop show he was a Detective in? Loved that show.

    Correct. the screen I'm using is really wide and it hurts my eyes to scan across! I notice now the "Frost" bit is at the far end of the screen. Why does everyone need BIG stuff!

    And yes Frost! Love Frost!....."Vera" is another i don't mind.

    Run your browser in a half-screen window. If I recall, on a Microsoft operating system, grab the title bar and slam it against the left or right upper corner of the screen and it will go to half width automatically.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
