Porridge is back, with a new series commissioned off the back of the last years sitcom season special, which sees Kevin Bishop return as Nigel ‘Fletch’ Fletcher. In tonight’s episode, Dougie Parfitt wants Fletch to join his crew as his consigliere. But when Fletch tries to broker a peace with Dougie’s arch-rival, things don’t quite go according to plan.
Nigel ‘Fletch’ Fletcher is the grandson of Ronnie Barker’s iconic character Norman Stanley Fletcher banged up in Wakeley prison for a series of cybercrimes whilst trying to escape the attentions of wily Officer Meekie (Mark Bonnar) and the softer Officer Braithwaite (Dominic Coleman). Helping Fletch get through his stretch are his cellmate and prison elder statesman, Joe Lotterby (Dave Hill) and fellow inmates Aziz (Harman Singh), Shell (Jason Barnett) and prison tough guy Scudds (Ricky Grover).
