Storyline

After prisoner Warren gets a letter from his wife which causes him to doubt her fidelity, Fletch offers welfare services to him and some other prisoners, instructing them on how to write an appropriate letter to their partners. Fletch's daughter Ingrid visits with bad news about Fletch's wife, for which he gets a weekend's compassionate leave. There is no bad news - it is a ploy for Fletch to go home, spend time with his wife and watch football. Written by don @ minifie-1

Men Without Women - Synopsis
3 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the final episode of Series Fletcher offers his services to his fellow cons by drafting them a letter to their respective spouses to remind them not to stray while they are inside. Meanwhile Fletch has hatched a plot to make everyone believe his own wife has strayed in order to con the authorities into giving him some compassionate leave. Not the best Episode from the series but by no means the worst. Hilarious to see Fletch turn Agony Aunt and then act all shocked when his Daughter, Ingrid, turns up with 'bad news' which turns out to be a great scam so Fletcher can spend some time with his Lady. Once again great performances from the cast which do make this another classic episode of Porridge.
