Ontelly

Porridge - No Way Out


Christmas special of the classic sitcom from 1975. The festive season falls upon the inmates of HMP Slade and finds them planning an escape. Fletch, meanwhile, is certain that the plan will fail and that retribution for it will be extremely unpleasant, so he plans to spend some time in the infirmary. The doctor, however, likes to keep the place empty.
