A thoroughly thought-provoking drama series based on the events in a womens prison. Bad Girls captures the highs and lows in the prison, and questions which side of the bar really is the most intense- its a world where the 'screws' versus the 'cons,' a world where anything and everything can happen, a world where the women really are vulnerable at the hands of the screws...

Originally, episodes used to end with a scene known as the "nightcall", literally inmates calling out to each other from their cells at night. Whilst these scenes were popular with the fans, a large percentage of the viewing audience switched off when these scenes came on, damaging the overall ratings for the episodes. Consequently, for Series 2 [onwards], the nightcalls were dropped in favour of the immediate, dramatic cliff-hanger - the first of these saw Shell calling Jim Fenner's wife from a mobile 'phone.

This is one of the best TV shows i have seen..Don't miss it!
A Great UK TV drama about a women's prison..This drama touches on many female issues about sexuality, abuse, drugs and love. This show takes you onto a rollercoaster of highs and lows...There are characters you just love and some you love to hate! The lesbian story lines are strong and is a very positive look at lesbians and Bi-Sexuality. I am impressed by how the UK has surpassed the Canadian and US in what can be and not be shown on TV. Being a religious country I am happy that the production company has pushed the envelope to the front. This is a great TV Drama.
