Prisoner: Cell Block H - looking back at the show




Remember Queen Bea, the Freak, and, er 'Vinegar Tits'? We revisit the joys of Aussie women’s prison drama, Prisoner: Cell Block H

Britain, you sent Australia your convicts. In return, we sent you a TV show celebrating them.

Strap on your nostalgia goggles, it’s time to revisit one of the most bizarre, violent, lesbian-fetishy-heart-warming dramas ever created.

Prisoner: Cell Block H (known simply as Prisoner in Australia) was a daring, one-hour show set in Wentworth Detention Centre, a fictional women’s prison that provides the one-word title of the original show's modern-day revival. It ran for 692 episodes from February 1979 until December 1986. It hitched a ride on the coat-tails of the successful British show Within These Walls, with a notable difference. The focus of Prisoner was mostly on the inmates, not the wardens.

Since unveiling Zootopia alongside its upcoming maritime adventure, Moana, Disney has remained awfully quiet regarding the former animation. All we know is that each film has been scheduled for a release in 2016, and that the animal-centric tale will be helmed by Tangled director Byron Howard. But today, the illustrious studio unveiled a single piece of concept art for Zootopia that draws attention to the titular city.

Orbiting around a devious fox called Nick Wilde, Howard’s anticipated feature will see the quick witted vulpini forced to go on the run after he is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. A manhunt spearheaded by the wonderfully named bunny police officer, Lt. Judy Hops, is soon drawn up, though it isn’t long before the pair find themselves unlikely allies when a conspiracy puts both of their lives at risk.

All of this will be set within a world where humans never existed,

With Prisoners' Wives proving surprisingly gripping, Jj Abrams' new drama Alcatraz set to start on Watch next month and NBC developing a Us remake of Bad Girls, it seems that the prison drama has found a new lease of life. So here's our guide to six of the best prison-set series. Let us know what we missed out below.

Oz (1997-2003)

There are prison shows and then there is Oz. Tom Fontana's unholy tale of life in the Oswald State Correctional Facility was the first drama series produced for HBO and remains one of its best. This was the prison drama at its most stripped down: bloody and brutal, and featuring astonishing performances from the likes of Dean Winters (cocky Ryan O'Reilly), Christopher Meloni (smouldering Chris
