#Quote
1[his reply when asked to extend episodes of Only Fools and Horses from 30 to 50 minutes] Well, a situation comedy is only thirty minutes. It won't sustain more than that, really.
#Fact
1He was born on a farm in Brecon, Wales, but was raised by his widowed mother and grandparents in Cefn Coed, near Merthyr Tydfil.
2He trained as an actor and teacher at drama school after his national service. He started out as a theatre director in York and Derby. He joined the BBC drama department in 1965 before moving to comedy two years later.
3Was considered to direct the pilot episode of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) when the original director was injured. But since he hadn't read the script, he was replaced as well.
4Started as a temp on Only Fools and Horses.... (1981), before he became the head of comedy at the BBC.
5Gwenlan and John Sullivan approached David Jason in 2011 with Del Boy coming back at 65 and what had become of everyone from Only Fools and Horses.... (1981). Jason was up for it, because anything was possible in Sullivan's hands. But two weeks later, Gwenlan phoned Jason saying Sullivan was in intensive care with viral pneumonia. He seemed on the mend, and got to leave hospital and go home at one point, but he had a relapse and went back to hospital and died not long after.
6Before the start of the sixth series of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981), David Jason was annoyed about something and went to see John Sullivan. Sullivan was writing terrific scripts that were too long and had to be edited down to 30 minutes. Jason felt they were cutting more funny material than most sitcoms manage in a full episode. One edit that had particularly vexed Jason was during the Series 5 episode Tea For Three. After Del Boy returned from a disastrous hang-gliding session, he originally had a speech Jason described as "beautifully constructed, full of suppressed rage" about all of the places Del had visited. Jason considered it a comic masterpiece, but because the episode had overrun, half the speech got cut. Sullivan agreed with Jason that the episodes needed to be longer. Jason and Sullivan approached Gwenlan while he was producing Series 6 with the plan to extend the episodes from 30 to 50 minutes. Gwenlan didn't think that was possible since sitcoms were traditionally meant to be at 30 minutes and couldn't sustain a longer running time. Jason said that would be true of an average writer, but not one of Sullivan's caliber, and yet they keep cutting great material. Gwenlan than okayed the idea.
