In 1978, after three series, two Christmas specials and a full-length feature film of Porridge, writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais finally released Fletcher from prison. Going Straight went on to win a BAFTA and attract an audience of over 15 million. Fletch is out. After spending three years, eight months and four days at Her Majesty's pleasure, the old lag is out of Slade Prison on parole. However, life on the outside is not going to be easy - he even finds Mr McKay in the buffet car of his train home. Will his carefully buried nest egg still be there? Will he be able to manipulate his family (including a 17-year-old son - played by Nicholas Lyndhurst) as easily as the gullible Slade Prison lags? Will he welcome old cell-mate, Lenny Godber, now a long-distance lorry driver dating his daughter Ingrid? Or will the delights of freedom make him yearn for the company of thieves, fraudsters and even screws?
