The 50 Best Only Fools And Horses Characters

A decent sitcom character needs to be both funny and believable, making it so hard for a writer to create a truly original one. John Sullivan however seemed to find it all too easy. With idiots firmly rooted in reality, Sullivan’s OFAH featured a collection of petty gangsters, spivs, dossers and criminals that we not just laughed at, but somehow knew, like family, like friends.

From the very beginning we were on the side of these losers, chuckling our trousers off with them, even when they did the most terrible and ridiculous things. To think that all these people came out of just one man's head is frankly unbelievable. Here's our top 50, counting down from 50 to 1. Mangetout mangetout.
