Yeah I felt for her. I loved it when they were all on the same side during her final stint. She was Bea's second in command after Jude had gone.
Yeah. I always found Chrissies exit upsetting, the way she was just taken off to Barnhurst without any warning and Paddy being killed in the same episode

Just re-watching the post Great Fire episodes and Nola has just bashed the women who did her over initially

IIRC we have the chilling 'This is for Paddy' branding coming up

IMO this was the era of the show where The Freak was at her most evil
[LIST][*]Trying her best to get Bea and Nola to knock seven bells out of each other[*]Trying to drive Bea mad through Zara Moonbeam[*]And then of course Bea's last stand with Sonia Stevens[/LIST]
She wouldn't have got away with most of the stuff she did in this day and age, she always managed to avoid being caught until the final episode
Oh man....I'm charging towards the last 50 or so episodes now; having started randomly around the mid 400's...I'm going to have to go back to the start when I finish as you keep reminding me of episodes I've not seen in years

how did I forget all about Minnie Donovan? Possibly one of the most annoying and incomprehensible characters to ever step foot in Wentworth.
Would Sonia Stevens really be threatened by an annoying little old lady with a stupid voice and an annoying Fagin routine? I think not.

I'm hoping Cass loses it and kills her in the steam press but I think I'd have probably treasured such a fabulous event.

So just how long is this annoying hag going to be in this?

I think you've probably got another dozen or more episodes of her

You've got some good episodes coming up. Although I much prefer Rita when she's settled in a bit.
I'm now approaching the Blackmoor episodes.

Yeah I'm just on Harry Bassinger trying to kill Lexie. I'd much rather Bob Moran this time around than I did originally.



Haven't seen the Blackmoor episodes for over twenty years, I hope they are as good as I remember.

Wendy is the most memorable. She appeared in the most episodes and got the most dialogue by far. She even got to date Steve Fawkner!!! Then she just disappeared. Shame really i quite liked her.

I don't understand why the makers of Prisoner made Julie a mute extra whereas the other receptionist at the time was given dialogue. It's makes for quite frustrating viewing, when characters who talk to her, she just nods her head.

Any other programme would have realised that the actress who played Julie had something and would have at least tried to bring her to the forefront a bit more.

Maybe they gave it a go and she wasn't very good? The actress playing Wendy was good so i can understand why she was given more dialogue.

Its like Tina and Lorna.Lorna got quite a bit of dialogue but Tina never did.

She seemed a competent enough actress when she spoke the odd word.

Besides, she wouldn't be the first bad actress in the series...

What do people think of a scene in Prisoner in which a girl is seducing a guy and she keeps saying to him "come to mummy" or something like that.

I think it might be one of the most bizarre scenes in the series.

I can't remember it, do you know who the characters were.

I'm just watching around the Harry Bassinger storyline. He's tried to kill Lexie and now Bob Moran is starting to believe Jessie about him, I liked this storyline although I think he probably should have got away with killing a few more prisoners before he was caught, Did anyone else like these episodes.

I liked those Bassinger episodes, should have ran it for longer though, seemed to be over in a flash, and i didn't think Mrs Davidsons brother had it in him!

Yeah Pippa was gorgeous

I know, some storylines they dragged out, but others like the David Bridges and Harry Bassinger ones, which I thought were really good, could have gone on longer but they cut them short, no pun intended.
