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.

I have heard that Going Straight will be released in October along with the Christmas specials.  Keep an eye on this site for further confirmation!

Website: I don't have one! I think Porridge is ace, I have only recently bought series 1-3 on DVD but I was very disappointed to find that the Christmas specials were not included.  I can't recall ever seeing Going Straight although I'd like to.  Hopefully it will be released on DVD as many thing are, especially if popular demand as it would seem after reading the comments of other people who have visited your site.  My favourite episode is the one where Fletcher's in hospital with a bad foot.  It's a shame about Beckinsale though, he was a good actor and his daughter Kate it well hot!  I have enjoyed reading your site and found it very usefull. Laterz, Leon

This site is great, the only bad thing I would have 2 say is the size of the font, makes the site difficult 2 read!

Life Beyond the box, Norman Stanley Fletcher, was sensational.

Really good to know I am not alone in my obsession for this wonderful program.  I wish many more episodes had been produced!

In response to Kristian's question there was a special transmitted around Christmas time.  It followed Fletch's early life and Ronnie Barker reprised his role at the end of the program.  Fletch ends up owning his own pub and the programme ended appropriately with Fletch singing "See the Pyramids Across the Nile".

I have like your site very much as Porridge is very good show which I have on DVD from friend in England.  My father was in prison in England in years gone it is said and friend think Porridge good show tell me how.  Fletch is a good man in the end and this is strength of show, but not so true to life!  Your site look simple and easy also to use.  Congratulation and thank you.

I have only just got into Porridge.  I have all the DVDs but am missing the Christmas specials.  I have never seen Going Straight as I was not born when was shown on tv.  I would like to see them very much.  Found the site very informative but look old.  Thanx for reading

I have just discovered the series, believe it or not!  I have liked the film a few years but only recently bought the DVDs, thanks to Britain's Best Sitcom.  Don't agree that Porridge comes below a lot of the ones above it.  Keep up the good work with this very informative site.  Mackay rules!

Great site!  Porridge is my favourite programme and I was bitterly disappointed when it only came 7th in Britain's Best Sitcom.  I have never seen Going Straight, but I'm dying to.  Does anyone know if it is ever going to be out to buy or will it be shown on TV again?

Although porridge was not officially voted "Britains Best Sit-com" We all know that it is an all time great never to be out-classed.  There can be nothing to beat an evening in with the inmates and staff of Slade Prison.  Absolutely wonderful.  This site is a stunner.  Well done!!
