Well, I'm up to the episode where Jock Stewart has fallen down the stairs chasing after Judy - I've always remembered this episode for some reason. Jock was a great baddy

Now awaiting the arrival of Joan - don't anybody tell me exactly when it is

Don't know how many people are aware of this, in this part of the forum but, it's been announced Prisoner is to be 'reimagined'.

It's going to be called Wentworth. Last I heard, the production team were location scouting.

Terrible idea. A continuation would be fine but to remake it with some of the same characters in 2012 is just beyond stupid.

Saying that I will watch

I don't get why Val Lehman is hoping for a role in the remake. She left the original when she could have earned an absolute fortune if she'd stayed until the end. Unless she got greedy back then perhaps. I wonder if any of the five major channels would be interested in buying this when the time comes to selling to other countries? I hope so. I'd definitely want to watch it. The big question is though, can they make this new one as appealing as the original was? If it's too realistic (like Bad Girls) then...

Val is poor these days. I've seen a video where she can't afford a new car and drives around with a tatty car as she can't afford panel beating.

Bad Girls was only realistic for its first series. Everything after that was a farce. Even more so than Prisoner!!

That explains why she wants a role in this remake for.

Her being governor would be a great move I think. Plus would also generate lots of interest for the remake. And if she is very poor they could probably get her for next to nothing.

I never particularly liked Bea.

And I certainly wouldn't like to see Val Lehman, or any other Prisoner actor, in this new series. Because I wouldn't want it to be visually tied to the original.

The new series, Wentworth should have a fresh start.

If it has realistic looking sets and what not, I might not bother carrying on watching it. The reason I stopped watching Bad Girls was because the sets looked too realistic and for me, wasn't as enjoyable as Prisoner Cell Bloch H. This was the sort of thing where you could sit/lie on the couch and watch while being in front of a nice warm fire. Bad Girls was too realistic for me at times.

She doesn't want to appear too desperate to the producers if she wants a role in this.

I'm on episode 213 . I've never seen the whole series so hopefully I'll make it this time. Part of the fun for me is spotting all the same props (that bloody decanter set, the red teapot) that appear in all the houses and the same faces that appear (Reyno as an offficer!)! Sad I know but it's funny!

We also count how many times Mrs Davidson or the others say 'Very well!'

Unfortunately I could only find the DVDs (cases) on eBay when I got mine. Well worth the wait. Would have loved to have gotten the steel box version. Ah well...

Yeah i havn't seen them all, i stopped watching it after a while, then went back to it, so i missed a load of episodes.

I remember seeing Reynolds, she was an officer at Barnhurst when they sen't Bea there, and also that Peter Hope, who Doreen was writing to (lonely hearts), he was in near the beginning playing a Doctor (was treating Lizzies Brother), he comes back into it later on as another character, the new prison cook.

That's what I found funny about Prisoner Cell Block H, that they used to bring back actors and actresses who'd already appeared in the soap to play different characters. It was done that often that it looked so strange.

That's part of the fun with this show.

You'll see a few more before you get to the end of the run Voynich!

I wonder if they will try and base the new show around a top dog character like Bea Smith or go for a Joan Ferguson bent screw let's hope it's not based around the last season and a dull character like Rita Connors.

The only reason it ended really was because they had run out of ideas for Ferguson and didn't know how to move on with her in the show and without her in the show.

I'm quite surprised to hear you say that.

As much as I love Prisoner, I think the set is it's main failing. I've always wanted to see a version with the same type of characters and stories but with a realistic set.
