I used to watch Prisoner Cell Block H many years ago. Are the women played by different actresses or are they the original ones? I wonder if Joan the Freak Ferguson will be featured.

The theme tune is not the same. Its an amazing retake on what was an amazing series anyway. Just watched the finale of series one a few weeks back OMG. Season 2 is being written and will feature the freak! For all you old fans you wont be dissapointed. Vinegar tits and B’s characters are very different from what you may remember, but the acting and storyline is amazing. Oh theres a great cameo from Madge (neighbours) to.

Original Bea does not appear. She was asked to appear but declined as she wanted a bigger role! If rumours are true she may be in series 2.
