Going Straight

Norman Stanley Fletcher sings that he's "Going straight, I am, straight as an arro".

Ronnie Barker reprises his role as NSF from Porridge and many comical japes arise in his attempts to clean up his act. His erstwhile wife and daughter reprise their roles in a show which did not reach the heights or the mark that Porridge had set a few years before.

    And really don't know why they bothered with this follow-up. It just never worked in quite the same way as the tight confines of prison and prison life. Barker was good of course, but not even he could save the show; not helped by the very sad death of Richard Beckinsale in 1980

    His wife is not in this series as she has left him before he gets out. A very young Nicolas Lyndhurst appears as his son though.
