Only fools flog dead horses and so we were extremely alarmed to read rumours of a re-working of the phenomenal 80s sitcom. A prequel of all things. Once Upon a Time in Peckham. The programme will apparently feature Del and Rodney’s parents Reg and Joan, and is being ‘discussed’ by writer John Sullivan and the BBC. The Green Green Grass has (grudgingly) admittedly been a success, but it doesn’t do it for us. The only good thing that we can think of about this: if they do go ahead with it, they’re all out of excuses to film everywhere other than Peckham - it’s London’s lubbliest jubbliest town centre these days, don’t you know.
