Hello sitcom fans!

I just wanted to let you know that you have a chance to get Mr Barrowclough from Porridge voted as the greatest British justice character of all time.

Get on there and vote on the poll - Mr Barrowclough is currently languishing with a lousy 3% of the vote, with Sherlock Holmes out in front with 56%. Let's get voting and make sure Mr Barrowclough gets the recognition he deserves!

You can find the online vote at:

Thanks for pointing that out. I've just voted for him. Shame they didn't include John Fuller-Carp - that's what all justice figures are probably really like IMHO ;)
