Only Fools and Horses/Characters

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Derek Edward "Del Boy" Trotter

Rodney Charlton Trotter

Edward Kitchener "Ted / Grandad" Trotter

Uncle Albert Gladstone Trotter

Rachel "Raquel" Turner

Cassandra Louise Parry Trotter

  • Closer to Earth: To much less of an extent than Raquel, though. She's definitely the more sensible one out of her and Rodney, but Rodney is himself generally more sensible compared to Del Boy, and Cassandra is both insanely career driven and prone to acting like a spoilt brat at times.
  • Narm Charm: Though Your Mileage May Vary, so yeah...
  • Uptown Girl

Damien Derek Trotter

Joan Trotter, Jr.

Joan Mavis "Joannie" Trotter, Sr.

  • Closer to Earth
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Changed her hairstyle four times: the first time was in the pilot episode of Rock And Chips, modelled after Marilyn Monroe; the second time was in the second episode "Five Gold Rings", modelled after Elizabeth Taylor; and the third and fourth times were in the third episode "The Frog and the Pussycat", modelled after Audrey Hepburn and Jane Fonda.
  • Informed Attractiveness
  • Running Gag: Whenever Del wants Rodney to do something for him, he always brings up what Joannie said to Del on her death bed. This was lampshaded in the fourth season OFAH episode "It's Only Rock and Roll" when Rodney tells Del about a row they had on whose turn it was to go and get the fish and chips, and Del claimed that Joannie said on her death bed, "Send Rodney for the fish."
  • Sympathetic Adulterer: Reg is neglectful, crude, abusive, and all too happy to sit at home, watch Joan bring home the bacon and then waste her meagre wages down the pub. Is it any wonder she jumps into bed with Freddie Robdal - debonair and attentive, if somewhat unreliable and immoral - the first chance she gets?
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: At least, that's what Del claims...
  • The Woobie

Reginald "Reg" Trotter

Colin "Trigger" Ball

Denzil Tulser

Terrance Aubrey "Boycie" Boyce

Marlene Lane Boyce

Tyler Boyce

Mike Fisher

Mickey Pearce


  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Sid himself admits that his food is borderline inedible, and that most of his trade comes from a combination of low prices and a good location next to the Peckham market.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: As claimed to have been in the 2003 OFAH Christmas special "Sleepless in Peckham" when looking at himself in the photograph of the 1960 Jolly Boys' Outing.
  • Only One Name

DCI Roy "The Slag" Slater

Freddie "The Frog" Robdal
