Peter Vaughan, best known for his roles in Porridge and Game Of Thrones, with Joanna Lumley “I still get people saying ‘Let you out, have they, Grouty?” the actor said more than 40 years later.”I was in just three episodes and, of course, the feature film, so I have to thank the writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais for the fact I’m one of the characters people always remember when they talk about Porridge because Grouty is so prominent – even though I’m not there.
