Storyline

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. The audience will be introduced to Bea all over again and meet her allies and enemies in the form of iconic inmates: ... Written by ahmetkozan

Goofs

They use the term top dog in the series, in Australian criminal world and inside jail being called a dog is an insult saying you are a rat/narc as in the US. (The term "top dog" is used a lot in both England and Australia and it is not an insult at all) See more »

Prisoner Cell Block H
29 August 2013 | by jonboy1969See 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.
