After getting his pysco wife to plant the wig into another mans property Fenner is released and back on G-Wing.
But the women have murder in mind. All of them hatch a plan for his death like poisoned candles, a forn blow in his neck etc with only One of the Julie actually killing him with an Ice blade that melted away with no traces of a weapon. For her to go all mental. But it was Pysco Di who got the blame for it and ended up behind bars herself for the murder.
This 7th series of one the best as it also has its first ever Christmas special where Fenner returns one last time as a ghost which only Julie can see cos she hasn't taken her meds.
So if ur a massive bad Girls fan like me. This is the perfect series to get if ur collecting the dvds
There is a brief mention of Frances Myers leaving the prison (Eva Pope clearly knew to quit whilst ahead) but there is no mention of Kris Yates or Selena Geeson, last seen protesting on top of a statue at the end of series 5. Considering they had played a major part in the previous series you would think some reference would have been made as to their fate. The vacancy for wing governor paves the way for another return to power by Fenner, highly unlikely after the previous series events, but this is Bad Girls after all.
The storylines have now become increasingly ludicrous, the Costa Cons farce in Spain involving Hollamby being a prime example, and the Christmas special, complete with ghosts and supernatural rubbish, is just plain silly. Character development takes second place to over the top story lines, we never do get to find out the agenda of the shady Kevin Spiers as he promptly disappears without explanation at the end of the series, along with a few others. The revelation about Arun is quickly forgotten and the character peters out afterwards. They really should have let Fenner go a few series back as both he and Di Barker's antics are just repetitious by this stage. Natalie Buxton is an evil, one dimensional baddie and her rival Pat Kerrigan is an obvious replacement for Yvonne Atkins.
Whilst Bad Girls always had a camp quality to it by this stage the show began to veer more and more towards the ridiculous and tacky Footballers Wives, which was created by the same writers, even having the cross over of character Tanya Turner during series 6. Had this been the first series I wouldn't have bothered watching it again and I would say it's really only worth watching for completion sake by this point.
Something to note on the copy I received: On disc 4, Episode 13 (the Christmas special) does not appear as an option on the main menu, only Episode 12 does. Episode 13 has to be accessed via the 'Special Features' option on that disc. It seems a little unnecessary to hide this episode away as it could easily be missed. If you're going to go on and view Series 8 you will want to watch it before moving on
The first episode opens up with Jim Fenner's difficult imprisonment and his subsequent release. Although the character was a baddie, he was great for the show, and we see him continue his dangerous, manipulative and downright evil reign of lies and sleaze as G-wing governor until his murder. Other excellent moments come from those hilarious Costa Cons, who briefly escape and head to Spain, only to stumble upon Body Bag and her (in the words of Con Phyl) "loathsome little man" husband on their ... "eventful" honeymoon.
There are several new characters who appear briefly but still make an impression, including a troubled young girl who murdered her mother, and an elderly nun whose' holier-than-thou image proves to be deceiving. One of the best new inmates goes onto become a regular, Pat Kerrigan, a women with a troubled past, tough on the outside and seemingly insane on first impression, but despite being a formidable enemy, she is a great friend, and happily takes vulnerable people under her wing. With Fenner dead, the no-nonsense Joy Masterton takes his place as governor.
'Bad Girls' was a quality TV drama from the start, but no real fan should be without this series. Life in Larkhall Prison is never dull, and often quite hilarious with these ''ladies''.
Please note: Like all the 'Bad Girls' boxsets, this series is available to buy on the '2entertain' label here: Bad Girls - Series 7 Box Set [DVD]. I have the edition from 'Acorn Media', and there are no special features (which I strongly suspect there will be on the linked set), apart from interactive menus and scene selection.
