An action packed Volume 7
on 15 March 2011
Well this is Prisoner Volume 7 and this is where the show goes from strength to strength, There's a govenor's posistion up for grabs, and it ,looks like Vera could be up for the job, Judy (the 40 yr old Virgin) is about to discover her daughter, a runner is in for breaking into a factory, Lizzie get's a marriage proposal, and of course the icing on the cake has to centre around Bea's greatest storyline with her amnesia.
Back in the day the actors were asked to submit story ideas, Val Lehman (Bea) come up with the amnesiac storyline,which proves without doubt that Val is a worthy award winning actress.the story starts with a transfer to Barnhurst, and a first encounter with the brilliant Marie Winter and the guest appearance of a future govenor with a very dodgy accent, then Bea has an accident and develops amnesia, and then struugles to cope with the fact she is indeed Bea Smith double murderess and not the suburban Mrs Smith who lives at home with her husband and 8 year old daughter.
It's a brilliant storyline and full credit to Val and the writers for such anamazing storyline and shows again why Val is such a great actress
The DVD also has extras including audio commentaries from Amanada Muggleton (Chrissie Latham) and Val Lehman (Bea Smith)
A post script, the colour for the DVD boxset was chosen by the fans of the official PCBH page on facebook.
here's to more speedy releases of this great cult show
