Trivia: The story behind why Trigger calls Rodney Dave is that apparently Roger Lloyd Pack kept getting names mixed up during rehearsals early on in the show's history. "Dave" came from David Jason when he was actually with Nicholas Lyndhurst [Rodney]. It stuck and quickly became part of the show's immense appeal.
Trivia: David Jason was the fourth choice actor to play the character Del. Jim Broadbent (who later went on to play Roy Slater), Enn Rietel and Billy Murray were all asked before Jason but all turned it down due to other commitments. Jason was actually only picked four days before filming started on the first episode.Joe Mc
Trivia: The show was originally filmed on location in Peckham, but as the show grew in popularity, filming was increasingly interrupted by tourists. And so, the location of filming was changed, but the setting remained the same.
