In the version shown by Channel 5 in the UK, episode 601, there was a cut of around 20 seconds when Wendy is threatening the women. She says, "Same goes for the rest of you scabs. Lou wasn't too rapt when she heard you broke the strike so I hear [from here onward, it was cut] (to Nancy) Oh what are you looking so scared about? You're name on the list is it? Eh? I wouldn't bet my boots on big chief Moron doing anything to help yous lot. He's too full of himself to worry about you lot. You should have known what side your bread was buttered on girls! Oh don't tell me [this is where the cut ended] Bird Brain's got something to say!" See more »
This is the best series ever shown on television. It has it all! Laughs, nerves, drama and heart. It´s not at all like any other soap-opera. One thing I like about the show is that it´s about the weak in society. Women in prison, what group can possibly be lower on the scale? And this series is totally on their side! Everything about this series is great! See it!
