Programme: Going Straight
Episodes: 6 (1 series)
Starring: Ronnie Barker, Richard Beckinsale, Patricia Brake
Written by: Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais
Synopsis: Spin-off from "Porridge". Fletcher leaves Slade Prison and returns home to find his wife has left him and daughter Ingrid is now engaged to former cell-mate Godber.
Review: "Going Straight" lasted just one series and is now hardly remembered. Many blame the lack of success on the show being unfairly compared with its predecessor, the hugely successful "Porridge". To be honest it isn't so appealing to watch Fletcher as he was no-longer in the jail environment.
