Prisoner Cell Block H
29 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just finished episode one of "Wentworth", the 2013 remake of the totally brilliant Prisoner Cell Block H, The characters names are the same, Erica, Vera Bennett, Bea Smith, Lizzie Birdsworth, Doreen Anderson, Mr Fletcher, even Frankie Doyle.

The first episode leads us down the route like the first episode of the original with some surprising differences, and one huge change from the original, which you will have to watch Ep1 to see, it came as a shock and surprise to me, and I loved it, it made sense to do it this way.

As long as the great writing and acting continue then Wentworth Prison will last for many many years, it would also be great to see some faces from the original pop up albeit as someone else, how about Val Lehman as governor, now that would be amazing.

If you want a really gritty drama, that harks back to the 80's but is new, modern and right up to date, along with great acting and writing, then this is definitely for you, currently it is on Wednesdays Channel 5 10pm (UK), go on, you know you want to.
