Prisoners' Wives is like Footballers' Wives, except the menfolk are exactly where they ought to be
• Killers Behind Bars on Demand 5
• Prisoners' Wives on iPlayer
Ah yes, the return of Prisoners' Wives (BBC1). A bit like Footballers' Wives except that behind bars is where their menfolk are, instead of where they should be.
