    Lucky Feller trailer

    David Jason stars with Peter Armitage in this LWT sitcom centred around the tangled romantic lives of two brothers living at home with their mum in south-east London.

    Often regarded as a precursor to Only Fools And Horses, Lucky Feller was a relatively early showcase for Jason's comic talents, penned by Terence Frisby - the award-winning author of stage hit There's A Girl In My Soup - and produced by comedy veteran Humphrey Barclay.

    The DVD set presents the complete series, originally transmitted in 1976.

    Featuring: David Jason (Bernard 'Shorty' Mepstead), Peter Armitage (Randolph Mepstead), Pat Heywood (Mrs. Mepstead).
