Dear Ian, it's me Leon Bigland, on the Internet on the 11.07.04 I was searching through DVDs when I came across Porridge the Christmas specials and Going Straight that are going to be released on the 4th of October 2004 which is just in time for Christmas which means I can get them.  Anyway as soon as I saw this I got the shakes probably due to over excitment, anyway I suddenly remember visiting your site and I thought I'd just let you know seens as your a BBC comedy fan like myself.  I was a bit peed off when I saw that Simon Ladd had informed you first but anyway you know now.  I'll check in to your site and let you know what I think of them as I don't recall seeing the Christmas specials of Porridge that look good because one episode is on the subject of them brewing alcohol which was a thing women prisoners did on Bad Girls which is a good show.

Excellent, I'm 22, I watched Porridge with my grandma ages ago and loved it, many years on I've just bought all the DVD copies, and got a lot more of the jokes, Ronnie Barker is the best.  Best family fun you could ever have.  FACT.

If only every classic comedy website was as good as this!  There's no BS, no gossip etc.  It sticks to the webmaster's remit which is to keep to the facts and keep the fans fully informed of latest developments. It is a sad reflection of the BBC's current output that virtually no recent comedy attracts the same degree of affection that Porridge still attracts from folk of all ages.  Other than the all too necessary innuendo that was prevalent in the episode "A Quiet Night In" the whole series was totally suitable viewing for the whole family as it worked on so many different levels. Forget Fools and Horses.  Porridge was the real McCoy in as far as it tackled many issues that affect the incarcerated male but with much subtlety and humour.  Fletch, Godber and McKay will live in the hearts of minds of us all forever!  This comedy was script and cast driven and that is what makes it virtually unique.  I shall say no more.  Just keep watching the DVDs, TV repeats and audio tapes.  The fun continues to this day!

In response to Sonny and Jade's comments I think a poll is a good idea.  Watch this space! In response to Judith's comments according to the book "On Set!" written by Steve Clark, Slade Prison in the opening credits was the front of a council depot in St Albans.  It was originally a prison apparently.  At the time the book was published (1999) it was the headquarters of mineral water company, Highland Spring.

Do you know what was used in the opening titles as the exterior of Slade prison?  Because Slade prison is fictional.

Following on Sonny Hamilton's comment why don't you add a forum to this site?  Adding a forum and/or regular polls, would certainly improve this site.

I think this website needs to be a bit more active.  Why not add quizzes, or polls to find out favourite episodes etc.

How tall was he and how old did he look in Porridge, but, the way, did he have a posh voice?

I must admit I cannot think of any Irish characters at all in Porridge.  The only character I can think of who is thin and not English was Evans who ate electric light-bulbs.  If anyone else has any ideas then please pass on your comments in this guest book.

I wonder if you Porridge fans can help me.  We have a bloke at work that looks just like one of the inmates from the show but we can't remember the name of the guy.  He was a thin old(ish) Irish fella with a pointy face.  Please help if you can.

I just bought a porridge DVD after seeing this site.  The pineapple chunks episode was worth the licence fee on it's own.
