Dick Cle­ment and Ian La Fre­nais have opted to repli­cate the gen­tle hu­mour of their orig­i­nal com­edy rather than up­date it, but they’re sail­ing per­ilously close to the fluffy and cliched here. Tonight’s story in­volves the switch­ing of cakes, one be­long­ing to Fletch (Kevin Bishop), the other – baked with magic mush­rooms – to the jail’s car­toon heavy. When an of­fi­cious new staff mem­ber helps her­self to the lat­ter, zero hi­lar­ity en­sues. View­ing through roset­inted glasses may be wise.
