Porridge (UK)

"Fletch", sentenced to a five year stretch at HM Prison Slade in darkest Cumbria, is determined to keep his head down, do his time and not let the bastards grind him down. But it's not so simple when you're an old lag. His native cell-mate Lenny Godber needs to learn the ropes, skives and scams; evil Prison Officer Mackay can't be allowed to run things his own way and warden Barrowclough is just too weak-willed not to have his good-nature exploited.

Character Bio

Harris photo
A middle-aged Teddy Boy with a fish face and ginger hair, Harris, much like 'Horrible' Ives is loathed by wardens and prisoners alike. He is a thief, a cheater and bullies anyone whom he deems to be weaker than he is. However, he in turn is bullied by all those above him, such as Harry Grout, Mr Mackay and, of course, Fletcher.
He was arrested when an attempt to mug an old lady went wrong, when it became evident that she had a brick in her handbag. The old lady succeeded in pinning Harris down, until the police arrived.
With the arrival of Judge Rawley at Slade, Harris is relegated to the job of mucking out and feeding the pigs. Harris is then accused of stealing Judge's Rawley's watch, and Fletcher decides to hold a kangaroo court with Rawley as the judge, Fletcher as the prosecutor and Warren as the defence counsel. However, because Fletcher insisted on a proper enquiry, Rawley has no option but to clear Harris, but Harris returns Rawley's watch.
