Synopsis

Revealing the man behind Del Boy, Pop Larkin, and Jack Frost, this authoritative biography offers valuable insight into David Jason's life and loves, covering the tragic loss of his partner of 18 years, Myfanwy Talog, and the joy of his wedding to new love Gill Hinchcliffe and the birth of their daughter Sophie Mae. David Jason is Britain's best-loved star. From Del Boy in Only Fools and Horses to Detective Jack Frost and Mr. Micawber, he lights up the television screen whenever he appears. This remarkable biography traces the life of Britain's favorite actor from his humble roots in north London to Sir David Jason, the icon we all know and love. Recruited to an early Python project for his masterful sense of timing, David soon attracted the attention of Ronnie Barker, with whom he appeared in classic BBC comedy series Porridge and Open All Hours. He has gone on to create many of television's most popular characters, garnering numerous accolades including the Royal Television Society's Award for Best Actor and a BAFTA fellowship for his outstanding contribution to television. He aslo received the ultimate tribute in 2005: a knighthood from the Queen. This affectionate biography paints a complete portrait of one of England's funniest and most talented actors; a true national treasure.
