1. Only Fools and Horses
The TV show
The nation’s favourite sitcom, about a pair of useless businessmen brothers with a unique talent for mangling European languages, falling through bars and making an entrance at parties. They live on a council estate in Peckham, a fact that every single newspaper piece written about the area in the past decade has made sure to mention.
Thirteen years since the Trotters lovelied their last jubbly, Del (Idris Elba) and Rodney’s (Karl Pilkington) bearded offspring (Dapper Laughs) have taken over the family business. As before, all their ideas are bloody awful, but there’s now so much disposable income in SE15 that they all – including a scam in which they pass off out-of-date Carling as craft beer – get snapped up in seconds by monied twentysomethings wearing New Balance trainers. Despite their incredible wealth, they ride around town on a bright yellow two-seater tricycle. ‘“The Wolf of Wall St” for hipsters’, one critic will proclaim.
‘This time next year, that corner shop will be a vape bar!’
