Porterhouse Blue

Malcolm Bradury's TV adaptation of Tom Sharpe's comic novel Porterhouse Blue. Based on the novel by Tom Sharpe, this satirical British miniseries surveys the machinations of upper-crust academics at the elite Cambridge College. Drama ensues when reform-minded Sir Evans (Ian Richardson) is appointed master. Determined to modernize this old-fashioned institution, Evans finds himself at odds with its recalcitrant staff, chief among them the devious Skullion (David Jason). It's a battle of wills, and no one is spared as this dark comedy lampoons privileged pupils, professors, and politicians alike.
