Series 1, Episode 2
Episode 2 charts Sir David's transition from comedy sidekick to major TV star and follows his attempts to make the breakthrough as a leading man on sitcoms like The Top Secret Life Of Edgar Briggs and Lucky Feller, before he finally got the role of his life as Del Boy on Only Fools And Horses.
And yet, it was a role that nearly never happened as the producers needed some convincing that Sir David was the right man.
Sir David recalls how his daredevil physical comedy on the ITV sitcom The Top Secret Life Of Edgar Briggs saw him hailed as "TV's man of action" in the TV Times. He takes a trip down memory lane as he heads back to Margate, the setting for the classic Only Fools And Horses episode The Jolly Boys Outing, with former co-star John Challis (who played Boycie) and director Tony Dow.
And he looks back on his memorable voiceover work on the likes of Danger Mouse and The Wind In The Willows, with the help of friend and animator Brian Cosgrove.
