Reviews

The Freak Ferguson gets into her stride at Wentworth, dealing out bashings and false alibis and fire hosing the inmates. Meanwhile, top dog Bea is trying for parole but continues to hand out punishments as normal.

On the outside, Susie gets involved with evil pimp Des, while the halfway house opens and is soon the scene for guns, fights, drug dealing and arrests.

And as new prisoner Maxine Daniels (Lisa Crittenden) reveals the truth about Joan's past, by the end of this box set, three women are dead and so is Joan's dog.

Sit back and enjoy 32 episodes and over 25 hours of classic TV action from the much loved Prisoner Cell Block H.

Extras include: audio commentaries with Val Lehman, Amanda Muggleton and Julieanne Newbould, and Val Lehman's reminiscences on a new prisoner.

Here we are with the tenth boxset of Prisoner: Cell Block H and nearly at the halfway stage. Episodes 289 - 320 are included in this set and provide hours worth of solid drama. Episodes 287 - 327 are probably my favourite episodes of the whole series and feature Joan Ferguson (Maggie Kirkpatrick) settling into Wentworth and setting her own rules towards the ladies of Wentworth. Both staff and prisoners alike unite to try to rid Wentworth of The Freak. Will they succeed?
We also see a terrific storyline involving the murder of local prostitutes and he search for their killer. How will new inmate Hannah Simpson (Julieanne Newbould) react to the unwanted advances from The Freak? How will Erica Davidson (Patsy King) deal with "the most disgusting thing I have seen in Wentworth" (the bashing of Chrissie Latham)? Will Bea Smith (Val Lehman) be able to return to the workforce problem-free? Who will win in the custody fight for Chrissie's (Amanda Muggleton) daughter? How will Doreen (Colette Mann) fare on her release?
New prisoners in this era include Sally Dempster (Liz Harris), Donna Mason (Arkie Whiteley), Paddy Lawson (Anna Hruby), Maxine Daniels (Lisa Crittenden) and Barbara Fields (Susan Guerin) who add heaps to the tension with The Freak.
Originally screened in Australia between July and October 1982, these episodes hit UK screens in the Midlands between March and June 1989 followed by regional airings between 1991 and 1994 on ITV in other parts of the UK.
Even without my favourite character Vera Bennett (Fiona Spence), these episodes are top notch!!
Enjoy!

I got this because I'm a long-time fan of the show (since it ran on tv many years ago)

And because this DVD-box has the episodes in which Arkie Whiteley has a part. Arkie is special :)

Technically it is much better than I anticipated (considering it is originally shot on video in 1982 and running on relatively low-budget). It certainly looks up to par with todays technical standards. Picture and sound is as clear and noise-free (and mpeg-artifact free as well, which is very impressive in my view compared to many other DVD-releases of 'old' material) as anything produced today (you CAN see that they used tube-cameras (the nice-looking color-flares you might remember from tv produced in the 70s and 80s), but it doesn't detract in any way)

This DVD-release is top-notch in every way :)

And the show itself is original and epic.

Top-score from me :)

Well after nearly 2 and a half years this takes us just under the halfway mark for Prisoner episodes, the first half, sees the Freak well established in Wentworth and she has her sights set on a new inmate, but will she sucumb to Joans advances, also seen is the Suzie Driscoll/Donna Mason saga, where innocent Suzie finally free ends up with known prostitute Donna Mason, who's pimp Des has his eye on suzie becoming his next working girl.

The latter half sees the arrival of a new inmate which stuns all the women, the arrival of the new nurse on the staff who is not as he seems, the women make a protest against The freak but come off a watery second best, with prostitues being killed, screws and cons trying to set up a fellow officer,a child basher bought in, and a trip to the male prison this is where Cell Block H really starts to get better and better.

I cannot wait till volume 11 which is released Feb 2012, with Volume 12 - March 2012, and Volume 13 - April 2012, this should take us to just over the 400 mark and the end of a long reign.

Not really a review of the set but I just want to say how much I've been enjoying re-watching Prisoner Cell Block H......I watched it the first time around at those late nights (11.30) on my black and white portable TV in my bedroom when living at mam and dad's when everyone else was fast asleep (I wore headphones not to disturb anyone)and it was the only programme that I felt I could really escape into....I was whisked into the world of Wentworth where Bea, Lizzie, Dor and Judy were my best friends...Meg was my angel...Fletch was the kinda guy I could have enjoyed a pint with...and I just loved watching the women put one over on the screws.

Fast forward 20 years where I have since left home, been married for 10 years and now have 2 children...my wife was never a fan so I stay up and watch an episode when all have gone to bed...and I couldn't believe it as soon as it starts I am back again in Wentworth again just like it was 20 years ago....it's like being back with old friends all over again.Although I remember some key storylines I am still enjoying watching them as if for the first time...there's so much I haven't remembered...yes can't wait for the rest of the series to come out to see old friends from the latter half of the series like Anne Reynolds,Myra Desmond...as top dog...Rita and yes I can't wait to see the amazing finale once again....bring 'em on...

Purchased for my 84 year old Nan, who watched the series the first time round and has started watching them all again. She loved them when she opened it on Christmas morning and has asked me to order the next few already!
