| David Jason reporting for duty
Sir David Jason returns to comedy in this new role. After becoming such a huge icon through shows such as Open All Hours, A Touch Of Frost and Only Fools And Horses anything new he did was always going to pail in comparison but I don't think The Royal Bodyguard is as bad as people claim it to be.

It's very much on David Jason's head and much of it's humour derives from physical comedy. People will say that this is old fashioned but lots of people still enjoy things like Laurel and Hardy which is the same sort of thing.

It's refreshing that there are no sexual references or swearing and the BBC needs more of this.

The scripts waver from being good to lousy but there are enough good points to keep watching however you can't help but think that the bumbling fool in authority joke has been done better with Clouseau and Johnny English.
