Ronnie Barker - Porridge, wonderful memories of a fantastic cast: Barker, Fulton Mackay, Richard Beckinsale et al.


Porridge - The central character is Norman Stanley Fletcher, described as "an habitual criminal". Fletcher is sent to HMP Slade, a fictional Category C prison in Cumberland, alongside his cellmate, Lennie Godber, a naïve inmate from Birmingham serving his first sentence, whom Fletcher takes under his wing. Mr Mackay is a tough warder with whom Fletcher often comes into conflict. Mackay's subordinate, Mr Barrowclough, is more sympathetic and timid – and prone to manipulation by his charges.
