Caught the very first episode of Porridge on Yesterday TV in the UK this evening and surfed Google to find this fascinating website. Porridge is knocking on half-a-century and still brings a good smile to the face. The writing, human chemistry and comic timing are among the best in TV history. A timeless classic. Heartwarming to see some of the original cast -- like Tony Osoba (Jock) -- are still alive and kicking as we near 2020. Long may they prosper. Keep up the good work!

Hello. I found this website in the Links section of the Steptoe and Son Appreciation Society. Porridge is one of the best british sitcom's thanks to its strong cast. I was looking through the Cast section and noticed that in the David "Jarvis" Daker section you have missed out that he was in Boon. Also the writer's Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais went on to write Auf Wiedersehen Pet!

Greetings from California -- your website is great. I've just discovered Porridge/Going Straight online. I'd never seen this program before (I'd never seen it broadcast on TV here in Los Angeles) and I love it!! It's got heart and Ronnie Barker is wonderful. Wish there were more programs like this, Rumpole of the Bailey, etc. coming from the U.K. Lately British programs we see here in the U.S. seem to cater to American audiences (e.g., Downton Abbey), and not as wonderful as they used to be...

Hi Danielle, Thanks so much for your lovely message. I am pleased you liked John's page. Your grandfather was very kind to me in the way he showed interest in the site and I was thrilled when he got in touch. You must be very proud that he played such a memorable character in one of the UK's most famous sitcoms.

This week I saw a BBC "Porridge" boxed set of DVDs for sale in ASDA. I was surprised to see it had a "15" rating, whereas formerly the series was rated PG. Any ideas for a reason for the re-classification?

Funny how it's taken me until this last month to finally view Going Straight, was thanks to visiting this site i thought I'd give it a go. After a binge watch of every episode I have to say I was delighted that I'd discovered such a gem. Only wish i could rediscover Porridge and watch them all again for the first time.

In my opinion Porrridge is right up there with Only fools and horses, and Fawlty Towers as one of it not the best Sitcom ever to be on British tele. Its superbly written combining comedy, and at times pathos, with great charcterisation. The performances of the main protagonist

Hello Porridge fans! I would love to hear what you think the best Porridge episode is and why? Do you have any favourite moments? What are they?? I am working on a programme about prisons and we may want to include a couple of clips from Porridge... Thanks everyone! You can email me direct: zanna@doubleact.tv Thanks!
