Fans of the iconic Prisoner Cell Block H series, which pushed boundaries over three decades ago and still boasts a loyal following worldwide today, will remember Bea Smith as gutsy and fearless, ruling Wentworth Correctional Centre with an iron fist. But who was Bea Smith before prison? How did a wife and mother from the suburbs become a top dog without rival? Wentworth Prison is a dynamic, often confronting, drama series that begins with Bea's early days in prison. Set in the present day, it is a modern adaptation of Prisoner Cell Block H that contemporises legendary characters and their stories for today's audience. This series takes the viewer inside to an uncompromising environment that explores the politics of women in a world without men, and how such a threatening experience both challenges and often changes those confined and working behind the razor wire.

This show is set in a womens prison in Australia, and tells the stories of the women who are in there. brilliant characters, from the intimidating and brave Frankie to quiet and dangerous Bea, and each one has their own story to tell. not only are there the women themselves, but great characters who are prison guards etc. as well from the lovable Vera to the strong minded Erica. Also uses violence and sex well, not over the top but keeps you excited for more. Bea is a worried mom who cares nothing more then for her daughters safety. a really great character and very well played. other characters to watch out for are Frankie, Jacs, Liz, Doreen, Vera, will, Erica, and Debbie. they are all very unique character but are played perfectly. exciting, thrilling at times, unique are words i would use to describe it. i would recommend it to anyone.
