Just watched Episode 5 (I now have the complete collection). Lynne Warner really grates on me, all she does is moan, "I'm innocent!" etc. I know she is innocent but I wouldn't mind if Bea jammed her hand in the steam press a few more times!

Vera Bennett is hilarious (unintentionally) and Lizzie is off her head with her inappropriate laughing on occasions

These are the episodes I didn't see when it was first aired on ITV (Granada) so I'm so pleased I'm getting the opportunity to see them.
I was never a fan of Wonky Warner either. Dreadful, whimpering character.

Do people actual read the flow of conversation before posting?

Try reading the post from which my post is quoted. Someone said Myra Desmond was Top Dog in her first (pre show) spell inside.

I suggested it was Winter, not Desmond, who was Top Dog before Bea and before the era the show covered.
That smilie seems to be very popular with some. Anyway, I did read the post you're talking about.....ALL of it.

Bea's the first top dog it shows you. Marie Winter might have been talked about as being the first one, but Bea was the first one shown.
"Wentworth" isnt actually prisoner cell block h. It is a completely new show but giving a "nod" to PCBH. Marie Winter may not feature at all as it is "re-imagined"..but she may!

This is also why the old characters/actors won't appear (e.g. Val playing Bea or Anne Phelan playing Myra) but the actors could play parts of other characters

I thought the other poster was talking about the original Prisoner Cell Block H.

Right, so it's the remake that's being discussed at the minute then. Okay.

He was HORRIBLE. A convincingly evil performance considering the actor played Judy's daughter's husband's uncle (!) a while back. Dreading/looking forward to these episodes!

I'm up to the ones where the joint concert between Wentworth and Woodridge is taking place. Margo's singing for her supper and Chrissie's just bumped into Neil Murray!

Yes, and then again later as Pippa Reynold's husband/boyfriend.

small fact for you. Grundys used that song as it is only that one line and are so stingey that is all they wanted to pay for copyright (well probably paid nothing for it)
"let the midnight special shine its ever loving light on meeeeeeeeeeeeee"

Well, she's just been released thanks to Helen Masterson's exposure. Thank god!

Helen Masterson was a bit of a whirlwind in Wentworth. I don't know how long she's going to be in there but I hope it's not long, she has a major superiority complex!

Just seen the actress who plays Margo later in the series as another character, Marilyn's prozzie mate.

Loving the series so far

Don't have Spotify, just been looking her up, didn't know she was a singer as well.

I thought id seen her in it before, she wasn't in long as the prozzie.

Douglas has just come back in as Pixies dad, he looks so funny

Yeah, Judy's one of the best characters. She's also one of the longest serving characters both in and out of Wentworth.

I'm up to three hundred and twenty something-not long until the brilliant and deadly Nola McKenzie joins!

She was called Helen Masters, not Helen Masterson

Midnight Special is a public domain song which means that they wouldn't have to pay royalties if any of the characters perform it.

There is more to that song than just that one line, ABBA did a version of it and it has loads of other lyrics.

It was probably picked because it is a song about life in prison.

Its funny because I hated Judy when she first came into it. Her constant moaning got on my nerves but then at some point she ended up becoming one of my favourite characters. I just don't know where the change of heart happened lol
