Porridge is back with a new series – commissioned off the back of the last year’s sitcom season special – and sees Nigel ‘Fletch’ Fletcher banged up in Wakeley prison for a series of cybercrimes.  He spends his days trying to escape the attentions of authoritarian Officer Meekie  and the much softer Officer Braithwaite.

Helping Fletch get through his stretch are his cellmate and prison elder statesman, Joe Lotterby and fellow inmates Aziz, Shell and tough guy Scudds.

Earache’s wonderful Harry Peacock plays prison bad boy Dougie Parfitt…see him in ‘Porridge’ from Friday 6 October on BBC One.
