I believe Fulton Mackay's portrayal of the "old school" prison officer is based upon Lionel Jeffries similarly brilliant role as Prison Officer "Sour" Crout in the Peter Sellers film Two Way Stretch. The way both parts are played, with immaculate uniform, small moustache, hat with the peak coming down towards the eyebrows are so similar even if the Mackay role is not a direct copy, there is at least a passing nod to the Jeffries role.

Great site - perennial TV. My favourite line is when Fletcher comes down to the wing after someone has nicked his pineapple chunks: "there is a thief amongst us."

Nice site - just like to say though, that as an ardent fan of the show I wasn't at all disappointed by 'Going Straight', in fact I think it's superior to the somewhat tired third series of 'Porridge' and not only features some of Barker's best work as Fletcher but is a fascinating portrait of late 70's 'Winter of Discontent' Britain. It's a great shame in my opinion that Beckinsale's tragically early death precluded a second run.

Love this show and it seems to be a firm favourite with brits abroad too as they always seem to have it on in bars (in addition to only fools). Pitty the BBC don't make original programmes like this anymore, instead the make silly programs like "The Voice"

I came here looking for information on Brian Wilde and was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information I found. Porridge has not been televised where I live, but it may eventually show up on our Public Television Stations.

a great site and a fitting tribute to, in my opinion, the best sitcom ever shown on television.

Recently on a train back to London, the steward asked if I'd like a drink, G&T said I, large one sir the steward asked, mind your own business said I. A great line from a top three sitcom.

Perhaps the best British comedy of all time? I was delighted to find this site. Excellent information and a fitting tribute.

Is it worth adding to John Rutland's bio that he appeared with Ronnie Barker in 'Spanner's Eleven' (one of the '7 of 1' series), 'Open All Hours' and was a regular in 'The Two Ronnies'?

Hi everyone, fantastic website. My question to all of you is this....I can't remember seeing any scenes with both Mackay & Grouty in, can you? I have always wondered how Mackay would treat Grouty

Excellent website with informative sections on one of the most enduring and funniest TV shows of all time. Porridge will always be funny to any viewer, whether it is the 1970s, 1990s, 2010s etc.
