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...

Helen Fraser reprised her role as Sylvia "Bodybag" Hollamby - with added singing and dancing! -in the 2007 production of Bad Girls The Musical in the West End. She hadn't been available for the initial West Yorkshire Playhouse production in 2006 because she was still filming Series 8 of Bad Girls for TV. See more »

I can't keep it at the right temperature.
Well, what we thought was, we could all take in turns to come out and hug it.
Body heat. You now? Thought we could take it in turns.
You can count me out. What about at night? Doesn't it have to be kept warm permanently?
Does it? Oh, shit.

Series 5, Episode 16 had a different ending theme. Instead of the usual blue and black background for the end credits, a black and gray background with a sad theme used. See more »
This is a wonderful gritty, raunchy series set in a UK women's prison. The cast of cons and screws is a marvelous ensemble juggling a terrific blend of heartbreak, back-stabbing, infighting and deft comedic turns that will leave you drooling for the next episode. Sultry Scot Simone Lahbib (seasons 1 - 3) as Wing Governor Helen Stewart, and Jack Ellis as the scheming head screw Fenner,who never quite gets his comeuppance,are particular stand-outs.
