For more than 500 years, Porterhouse College has cherished tradition above all else. Unfortunately, its traditions mostly involve decadent banquets, drunkenness, and undistinguished scholarship. Enter Sir Godber Evans (Ian Richardson, Bleak House, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), a new master hell-bent on reform. Of course, the dinosaurs on the faculty resist him at every turn. But Head Porter Skullion (David Jason, A Touch of Frost) emerges as Sir Godbers most formidable foe -- a self-appointed guardian of Porterhouses most hallowed traditions, with plenty of tricks up his tweedy sleeve.
Based on Tom Sharpes uproarious bestseller, Porterhouse Blue crackles with dry wit and bristles with satirical barbs. It punctures British pomposity in Oxbridge and beyond, taking dead aim at dotty dons, stodgy aristocrats, hypocritical reformers, and TV reporters. Winner of an International Emmy® and two BAFTA Awards (including David Jasons for Best Actor), Porterhouse Blue rewards viewing after viewing with fresh laughter.
