In Bradford, England, several desperate streetwalkers team up to run the business for themselves. They must deal with competition, mobsters, moralists, psychos and cops, but at least now they have each other and a plan.
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...Written by

[after Bev is back from seeing the guv]
So what did you tell that half-wit?
I went to tell her that you have nothing to do with my situation.
[opens their secret drug cupboard]

Bad Girls is Shed Productions first, and most popular drama series on ITV.
Bad Girls is based in larkhall womans prison. After having watched every single episode to date, Bad Girls have successfully displayed what being in a womans prison of this nature is really like. It is shocking, depressing, and more often than not disturbing.
Even after watching 3 - 4 episodes, you get a feel for the characters, and what happens to them, happens to you too. At times you feel happy, and at others you feel sad. There is comedy thrown in every now and again, but there is always a more serious underlying concept that can never be forgotten.
At the end of each episode, you are left wanting more. Bad Girls NEVER fails to surprise you with what's in store round the next corner. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does.
This drama is a masterpiece that will hopefully go on for years to come.
