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
The majority of the cast have since gone on to star in lead roles in UK soap operas. Linda Henry (Yvonne Atkins), Luisa Bradshaw White (Lorna Rose), Kellie Bright (Cassie Tyler) and Annette Badland (Angela Robbins) all joined EastEnders, playing members of the same family; Debra Stephenson (Shell Dockley), Jack Ellis (Jim Fenner) and Helen Fraser (Sylvia Hollamby) went on to have roles in Coronation Street; Alicya Eyo (Denny Blood) went on to star in Emmerdale and Isabelle Amyes (Barbara "Babs" Hunt) had a guest role in several episodes of Doctors.

I haven't seen all of the series, but from what i've seen, it's a rarely impressive TV drama. All of the characters are carefully created, and the actors are doing a great job; while you're watching, it feels like you're really a part of their crew. You share their awkward moments, fights, their joys and losses; pain and hope are mixed in one here. And yet, tension and stress is not all that this show has to offer, there's a lot of fun moments too. And after all, a lot of love going on. These women have countless flaws, but they are still valuable human beings, and their hearts and souls are not made from stone. I'd definitely watch it again.
