This remarkable biography traces the life of Britain's favourite actor from his humble roots in north London to Sir David Jason, the icon we all know and love. Recruited to an early Python project for his masterful sense of timing, David soon attracted the attention of Ronnie Barker, with whom he appeared in classic BBC comedy series Porridge and Open All Hours. He has gone on to create many of television's most popular characters, garnering numerous accolades including the Royal Television Society's Award for Best Actor and a BAFTA fellowship for his outstanding contribution to television. He aslo received the ultimate tribute in 2005: a knighthood from the Queen.
