Storyline

Fletch reluctantly agrees to broker a truce between Dougie Parfitt and his rival Najid but it turns into a riot, in front of the board of visitors, making their annual inspection. One visitor is Caroline Hawley, mother of the girl Fletch dumped and no great fan of his but after he has saved her from the rioters she is quick to show her appreciation whilst the result of the riot also releases Fletch from his unwanted role as go-between.

The Witness
27 October 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Blimey some aggro in this episode. We never saw punch ups like this in the original Porridge.

Fletch has been requested by Dougie Parfitt to be his consigliere and broker peace talks with east European rival Najid.

The prison wants the inmates to be on their best behaviour as the board of visitors are making their annual inspection. The prison has even bought in a ping pong table for the day.

I found this amusing simply for the reason that it did not remind me of the original Porridge but was a genuine update. Ricky Grover steals the show as Scudds when he questions the logic of the horse head scene in The Godfather.
