Welcome back to Wentworth!

Season two of Aussie women’s prison drama Wentworth starts this week, and promises to again be a hotbed of drama, intrigue, violence… and lesbian sex.

The first episode of the new season will feature the arrival of Pamela Rabe as scary screw Joan Ferguson. Fans of the 1980s version Prisoner Cell Block H will know she lived up to her nickname… ‘The Freak’.

She’s showcased in the exciting teaser clip for the new season – but you can call her “Governor”! Watch it below.

In the original version of the show, Joan Ferguson, played by Maggie Kirkpatrick, was a smart but sadistic lesbian who was famed for her controversial ‘frisk’ search of the inmates. It’ll be interesting to see if the 21th century Freak has similar tastes.

One thing’s for sure though, lesbian passion won’t be far off the agenda. Last year’s finale episode saw Wentworth inmate Franky Doyle (Nicole da Silva) and Governor Erica Davidson (Leeanna Walsman) give in to a passionate clinch, shown below.

It looks like Erica won’t return for season two, so who will Franky set her sights on next?

Wentworth season one is now available on DVD, and season two begins 8:30pm this Tueaday May 20 on Foxtel’s SoHo channel.

Commercial tv networks wouldn't be interested in a show like Wentworth. They're too busy making drama series about glorified underworld criminals , the packer family or 30 something middle class hetrosexual women.

Vinegar Tits !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what an excellent way to introduce us to Vinegar Tits !

This show just keeps getting better ! sure a few stories are lame but that happens in almost any series but the overall story is so good.

Its like the original series when you sat around screaming at things that happened , the new series does the same.

Fingers crossed for Series 3. So many of the characters unfolding they will need another series.

I was hoping Fletch was going to make a full recovery and return to Wentworth. One of the online promo's appeared to show that but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. I think the promo was more of a dream like sequence.

They could always get M/s Maggie Kirkpatrick to play some sort of relative of M/s Rabe's "Joan".

Imagine that ....... two Freaks for the price of one. :D

lol I've watched two episodes, I don't need to watch the whole thing to know that I don't like it. That's like saying you need to have full-on sex with a woman before knowing for sure that you are gay. I simple give my opinions, regardless of whether they're different from other people on this board. If you have a problem with that, so be it, and if you're trying to shut me up, it's not working.

I am so excited to see Pia Miranda and Libby Tanner back on our screens.

So far I'm wondering where they're going with this season. It lacks the plot direction that the other two have had (S1, Bea's ascent; S2, revenge). Anyone have any ideas where it's going, or will it just be a straight-up Bea vs Gov affair?

Tigerland

Tigerland said on the 24th Apr, 2015

I think Frankie is going to try and cotton on to this new Prison Psychiatrist.

That other younger girl with the long hair who showed up during last season. I've forgotten her name (She was originally supposed to be Godmother for Doreen's baby). I reckon she's bad news under that sweet and innocent exterior.

from original show that can suddenly turn up and cause mayhem

a few male prisoners would be nice , oh and them getting it on as well........sometimes the girls just make blush hahahahahahaaa

Although Mama still aching for it she agrees that this season seems a bit directionless. Another thing that seems to be lacking in Mamas opinion is that unlike Prisoner, Wentworth isn't introducing many new inmates. Prisoner always had its core gals but there was a constant stream of new arrivals each bringing new storylines with them.

^ Me three with the baby killer. At first she spun a believable story, but the way she's looking at Doreen's guts makes me think that an involuntary C-Section may well be in the cards.

And Yes, Frankie and the Psych really need to get fingering, and soon. Not nearly enough sleaze in this season - apart from Frankie's shower vom. Thank god we were spared details on that storyline.

Being a "Prisoner" fan from way back I've made no attempt to see this series at all.

I only get free-to-air thingys as well ...... Foxtel free zone here! :p

And although I adore M/s Pamela Rabe who plays "you know who" :cool: in the series, the only M/s Joan Ferguson to me is M/s Maggie Kirkpatrick.

Having said all this though ..................

I remember folks rabbiting on about how "Breaking Bad" was such a great series and until I pulled out the "proverbial" and bought the series on DVD, couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

And of course, they were right.

"Breaking Bad" was excellently written and many episodes left me like :eek:

I may or may not have to buy the first series of "Wentworth" and see if it is any good myself. #justsaying.

Hey Fereaky Im over halfway through series 3 of BB. I thought series 2 was a bit slow and tedious to get through at times but loving series 3 so far.

TheOldie

TheOldie said on the 29th Jun, 2015

pull your finger out Freaky and at least buy the 1st series.

The 2nd series was good not as good at the 1st. The 3rd series was kinda like 2nd series good for the first few episodes but then it heated
up like you wouldnt believe.

I am/was a big Prisoner fan as well and just though meh its on Foxtel , its free may as well watch a few episodes and like BB after a couple
of episodes was hooked.

I expect to see your receipt for buying the 1st series within the next week so get moving.

I've put it on my list to buy Mr Oldie & Mr Tigerland. :p

I'll see how I go with Series 1 first ....... then more than likely progress.

I'll drag my beau out to JB Hi-Fi on the weekend & get the lecture again about having more DVDs than Blockbuster.

Give us something to watch on those cold, "beau-snuggling" weekends. :D

I guess I got us off topic a little before talking about "Breaking Bad" but I guess it was kind of relevant in a way ......

I couldn't see what folks were raving about until I watched it myself ("Breaking Bad" that is) and I guess it'll be the same with "Wentworth".

@Mr Oldie: Who knows! My beau told me once he never watched "Prisoner" back in the 1980s, so "Wentworth" will be a whole different experience for him. I'll be one trying to get his head around other actors being called "Frankie", "Bea", Doreen" etc.

I'll try to keep an open mind about the Joan Ferguson character if I get to Series 2 or is it 3? .... just saying. :D

What I don' get is that with all those prison cameras in every nook & cranny of Wentworth, that no-one has figured out that the Governor could spy on EVERYONE - prisoners and staff alike. :rolleyes:

I wonder if that's true, Mr Virgindirk or whether it's more a case that there is now a wider market than before to choose from to sell their product.

When the original "Prisoner" aired back in 1979, there were only 5 TV channels (there were no "Pay TV" channels back then ;))

Channel 10 (in NSW that is) took a gamble and put it on at 8.30pm at night.

It proved to be one of the most popular TV shows, not only here but also apparently in the U.K.

But the market now is much wider (and even more so with thingys like NETFLIX) so it's more like "first in, best dressed" (as old Father Freaky would say :p).

It's a shame in a way because not everyone has Foxtel but I think most folks would have free-to-air channels.

So there are a lot of folks missing out on this show. :(

Had a look in Wikipedia and there's no release date on DVD for Series 3 yet.

I'd say, at a guess & looking at a similar pattern for the first two seasons, that it'll be released on DVD later this year sometime. :(

Good news that they will be filming Series 4 in Spring of this year though. :D
