…Boycie dons his suit and goes on his travels to investigate.
Pack your bags Marlene we’re only off to Belgrade…When Only Fools and Horses’ very own wheeler car dealer Boycie aka John Challis learns that the classic British sitcom is massive in Serbia, he puts on his Burton suit and takes a trip to Belgrade to find out why, in bonkers documentary travelogue Boycie In Belgrade, which gets its UK premiere on DVD and digital Monday 14th June.
One half of the show’s favourite ‘classy’ couple that saw Boycie married to forthright Marlene – played by Sue Holderness, who recently returned to the small screen in another London fave EastEnders, Challis takes a jovial journey to Belgrade to investigate the popularity of one of Britain’s best-loved sitcoms.

This entertaining road trip with John, who has appeared in everything from Crossroads as a seedy photographer, a ‘heavy’ in Doctor Who and as a police Detective Sergent in Coronation Street, is a must watch for any fan of Only Fools and Horses, you’d be a plonker to miss it.
