Looks like there are a lot of characters from prisoner cell block h that are going to be in this new prison show, but with new actresses

It's actually been classed as a new series of Prisoner but with a change of name, I was they'd bring back Bad Girls.

Channel 5 may just bid for this considering that Prisoner has cult status in the UK.

Well something's wrong with that cast as the actress playing Lizzie Birdsworth is only in her 40s!

Do you not read the Prisoner page it is based on the characters before the previous incarnation in the modern age.

It's certain to be a disaster if they are using character names from the old series.

In that case the other characters should be in nappies.

As a Prisoner fan, I'm really looking forward to Wentworth.

If the U.S. remake of Bad Girls ever finally materialises, it will be interesting to see how the 2 series compare. It will also be interesting to see if they have any influence on each other. (For example, if they are too similar, will one of them change and go in another direction.)

I think both Wentworth and the U.S. Bad Girls remake are both going to air next year.

I'm a diehard fan of PCBH and intend to reserve all judgement until I see Wentworth for myself. I want it to be great, I really do...

Hope it gets broadcast over here on a Freeview channel. I'm hoping it'll have the same spark as the original did.

As a huge Prisoner fan I am going to give this a chance and hope it does well but I just can't see it happening.

They should have gone with a continuation of the old series instead of a remake.

The whole reason why I loved the original Bea Smith was that she was a real woman, the new Bea looks too pretty!

YH its strange to watch quite a lot more graphic
as a BIG fan of the original series I wanted to see this updated remake, like others have said some characters are completely different even though the actress playing Frankie is prettier I knew who she was before she even spoke Meg is Governor, Erica a lawyer like stated Doreen is now played by an Aboriginal actress,
but Seeing as this is set way back At the beginning of Beas incarceration things could change roles move around
Do hope its picked up here ( & MORE importantly Not messed around with)
