The Major - that's it - I was trying to think of him in my previous posts
I really liked the scenes where The Major, Joan and Shane were all together. It was the closest Joan ever came to having a family. She was distraught when she lost them.

Yes, you are right (I'd forgotten about that) The poor dog, what an end.

Didn't she also have a girlfriend called Terri? She loved her, too. I think Terri cheated on her.

She did indeed. She took that young boy in (Shane) and she doted on the Major (her father)

I quite liked Joan when she was away from the prison. She turned straight back to The Freak once she had that uniform on though.
I blame the glove. I reckon it had evil powers and whenever Joan wore it it posessed her very soul

Poor Lizzie looked at Bea and Doreen as her family. Her worst fear was being released. Didn't she used to go on the rob when released, just so she would go straight back inside?

Can somebody tell me how Prisoner last episode ended? I had stopped watching it by this point, sure I tuned in for this episode though? I cannot remember it.
Thanks
Basically Rita and the police colluded to bring Ferguson down and down she fell

Whether Rita was just making up the cancer to get Ferguson's trust is debatable

To cut a long story short, Ferguson had lost her grip of power she had had for so long and plotted with Rita to do a bank job

Rita did the robbery and told Ferguson where the money was stashed. Ferguson went to collect the money and was caught in the act by the police

If you look closely, you can see Mr Douglas ushering her into the police car on the way to Wentworth

Then she went off on one at Meg and Anne whilst being inducted, and then Rita brought her meal to her when she was in her cell and it dawned on her she had finally been outsmarted

The next day she was taken 'to the west' to await trial and that was The End

IMO it was good to see her get her comeuppance after all she had put Wentworth through from Day 1 of her arrival

It would have been nice had they did one more episode to see how everyone was adjusting to the post Ferguson era

Thanks I remember her getting caught now. Not sure who Rita was, as I stopped watching after Maxine got introduced and similar characters, seemed to just keep coming in.

Why wait for the whole series to be released in the UK when you can buy the imported version from an Australian seller on eBay? You'd have to save up though.

Rita was a biker who Joan Ferguson took a dislike to. They became sworn enemies are something happened.

Some of the PCBH cast are sadly no longer with us:

The 2nd govenor who played Ann Renolyds died.

The actress who played last top-dog, motor-bike lover Rita Connors is no longer with us.

that fat Len Murphy officer, died in real-life.

and of course the most obvious death of all - the actress who played Lizzie.

The only true Top Dog was Bea Smith in my opinion.

Who remembers Geoff Butler.. the biggest baddie in any soap.. Jim Fletcher's army "buddy"...! Those early episodes 1979 - 1980 were so memorable!

I can't find anywhere that reports of Glenda's death.
