Fletch is out. After spending three years, eight months and four days at Her Majesty's pleasure, the old lag is out of Slade Prison on parole. However, life on the outside is not going to be easy - he even finds Mr McKay in the buffet car of his train home.

Will his carefully buried nest egg still be there? Will he be able to manipulate his family as easily as the gullible Slade Prison lags? Will he welcome old cell-mate Lenny Godber, now a long-distance lorry driver dating his daughter Ingrid? Or will the delights of freedom make him yearn for the company of thieves, fraudsters and even screws?

It is 1937. Clarence is a furniture shifter - an unfortunate occupation for a man who can't see further than his nose - until he meets maid Jane Travers. After a short courtship and a quick proposal, Jane suggests "a trial period" of co-habitation - with "no hanky panky".
Moving to a country house once owned by an aunt of Jane's, the couple attempt to find domestic bliss. But Clarence's experiences at the sewage farm and working on the land suggest a myopic bungler is going to find it difficult to find gainful employment. And, as the nights grow longer, he's going to find it even more difficult sticking to his own side of the bed...

In the small Welsh Village of Llantisiliant, Plantagenet Evans advertises himself as a 'Genius, Photographer and Man of Letters.' Larger than life and flamboyantly dressed, Evans is an egotistical, overbearing character who sees himself as more of an artist than artisan.


Open All Hours:
This was our first sight of Arkwright, the miserly Northern shopkeeper who victimises his delivery boy and nephew.
Prisoner and Escort:
Fletcher, the career criminal, became Barker's most famous character. In this episode he meets future guards MacKay and Barrowclough.

My Old Man:
Barker plays retired and embittered engine-driver Sam Cobbett, the last tenant to leave his house in a road condemned by the council.

Spanner's Eleven:
This Roy Clarke scripted comedy revolves around Albert Spanner, hot dog seller and team coach for the dismal Ashfield Athletic Football Club.

Another Fine Mess:
This excellent homage to Laurel and Hardy finds Barker as Ollie teamed with Roy Castle as Stan.

One Man's Meat:
Barker, under the pseudonym Jack Goetz, wrote this story of a man desperate to escape a starvation diet imposed by his wife.

I'll Fly You For A Quid:
This Clement and La Frenais story finds Barker as gambling Welshman Evan Owen determined to retrieve his late father's winning betting slip.

Has anybody successfully used it? I know you get the confirmation e-mail, but won't the order be cancelled afterwards?

i have already successfully ordered a previous item using this code and had delivery and i do not have a virgin credit card although I will happily order again at the £37.99 price if need be as the contents of this boxset would cost twice as much if bought separately.

Thanks for that, I have been looking at this for a bit and wanted a good price.... This is a great bargain for a fantastic boxset.

Either way, that's a quality present for my old man for Christmas! Cheers!

Voted hot - Bargain. Comedy genius.

Just told my friend about this as she's been after this for ages - fantastic price, she used the code too which seemed to work but even without the discount still a good price. Thanks.

fantastic deal. Saw this today instore and bought it for £40 (Watford, Harliquin) still a bargain though and will entertain my dad for hours on xmas day.

Great price, **** website. Kept losing my basket contents, WTF.

Thanks for this great post; will make a great xmas pressie for the old dear.

Couldn't get the code to work though - website came up with "Attention, some fields have errors!

* The discount coupon number is not recognised"

But it's worth the £40 anyway!

unfortunately it would seem that virgin/zavvi have noticed non virgin card holders using the voucher code now but it's good to know of at least one person who has received this successfully, it makes posting bargains on here all the more worthwhile :thumbsup:
