PORTERHOUSE BLUE

Clip

"Hilariously funny and gloriously acted... a lavish production, a brilliant parody" - Sunday Times

"The cast is highly impressive" - Independent

"Entertaining, funny, upmarket and with a classy finish" - Media Week

David Jason (Only Fools and Horses, A Touch of Frost), Ian Richardson (House of Cards, Brazil) and Griff Rhys Jones (Not the Nine O'Clock News) lead a distinguished cast in Malcolm Bradbury's four-part adaptation of Tom Sharpe's classic comic novel about the fictional Porterhouse college in Cambridge, noted for its rowing, ancient traditions, feasting, crusty fellows and the dismal academic standards of its students. When the headmaster dies, the government appoints an old graduate as his successor - the politician Sir Godber Evans (Richardson), who is determined to drag this bastion of privilege into the 20th century and announces a major break with six centuries of college tradition: Porterhouse will open its doors to scholars! Head Porter Skullion (Jason) is as stunned as the Fellows and students, but the new master, egged on by his wife (Barbara Jefford), is determined to sow seeds of change in the very foundations of Porterhouse. (4 EPS, 1987)
