Ooh it gives me the willies. I would hate to be going through any of that stuff. Some hard hitting stuff!

I must admit the scene of the next morning when she was serving them breakfast and the boys were looking at for some reason broke my heart, 3 innocent little faces sad had to remind myself it was just a programme grin some of th characters are great, love Hattie and her son.

Pearly- is that true? Would they really reveal the whole story arc in the first epiesode? I'm with NotQuite- I think the twist is that he's guilty- maybe that's why his alleged victim plays up in the first place.

I don't know because last series was all about how that girl off Hollyoaks thought her husband was innocent then he turned out to be guilty. I think it might be more complicated, maybe we never know sort of thing.

ChocsAwayInMyGob Sun 17-Mar-13 12:02:33

Sasha- I agree. In the last series Gemma's husband seemed completely innocent and it all seemed like a terrible mistake, but as the series went on, it was clear that his involvement in crime was 100 times worse than she thought.

I think the alleged child molester storytelling will go the same way.

I reckon Fran will end up in prison and the drug dealing sons drug dealing business will go so well that he'll end up a well 'ard gangster just like his dad, chip off the old block.

I'm guessing that their keeping Fran and the lady whose son wants to convert to Islam as main characters and introduce new characters and story lines around them like last series. I love Polly Walker, she's perfect for Fran.

So much good stuff on at the moment, I'm hooked on Mr Selfridge, Lightfields, Broadchurch, gutted that Call the Midwife ended last week!.

I think it's a fantastic programme, I was wondering that myself about the boy acting up all the time, Fran is a brilliant character and you can see that her father is torn between loving her and wanting her out of his life, yes it looks like her son will be going the same way as his Dad. I just presumed that Harriet handed over the little boy when his Dad was released from prison. I got the impression that the vicar had something to do with Gavin not being allowed convert. I don't trust the vicar, not sure why. Roll on episode 2

Hope you don't mind me joining in Ladies

Ooh it's exciting isn't it. The more the merrier on this forum, love how we all pick up different nuances in the storyline wink

I don't think they can afford to put Fran in prison- she makes such fantastic telly. Did anyone see Polly Walker in Enchanted April years ago? She played a beautiful 1920s socialite and was utterly stunning, still is.

I watched 'the Mayor of Casterbridge' recently and Polly was in that- she is a fantastic actress.

Love Prisoners wives-

Yes, it was a bit of a repeat idea when the police barged in and the wife had no idea why. Agree the actress who plays Fran is talented and well cast. I think the story-lines are very believable, especially Fran's and Harriet's.

PearlyWhites Sun 17-Mar-13 19:07:51

Yes I though it was a twist but that's what the sky blurb said ?

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 17-Mar-13 19:37:44

As I said I think he is guilty and did molest sad

Then again better tv if innocent and banged up and beaten up and the neighbour strutting about outside late at night smoking and drinking from the can

Chippychop Sun 17-Mar-13 20:26:27

I've just watched it again (Dh came home and chatted a fair bit and I missed stuff) I reckon the paedo is innocent I'm not sure it'd make good telly to have a 'nonce' locked up and one of the main characters - I still think its too raw a subject for main steam telly, mind you the lead up to any trial would be good telly, and there could be some good scenes between the next doors chavs.

The dci has got issues I reckon 'it's personal'

Harriet is great - is the vicar going to go all the way without being married??? I wonder how innocent the vicar really is..maybe he's a bit of a baddy himself.. Who knows, can't wait until next time

ChocsAwayInMyGob Sun 17-Mar-13 20:51:15

I just think if the child molester is innocent it's too black and white a story. What if the nasty Waynetta next door is telling the truth- now that would be a twist, plus the added drama of the wife having to come to terms with it.

TheBrocoliIsStillRaw Sun 17-Mar-13 21:06:52

So glad I found this thread. I was absolutely hooked on the first series, hope this will be equally as gripping. I'm hoping the child molester is innocent I think it would be a bit samey if he was guilty.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 18-Mar-13 15:33:23

true chocs, maybe he is guilty

blondes sits on fence pulling splinters out of her blonde butt grin

ChocsAwayInMyGob Mon 18-Mar-13 17:42:14

I just remembered the fourth storyline- the beautiful woman with the Dad that looks like a potato. She wants him to be out in time for the wedding, but that's SOO not going to happen, is it!

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 21-Mar-13 22:40:04

Anyone watch this week?

MsNobodyAgain Thu 21-Mar-13 22:48:37

Yep. Bit surprised at the affair.

Harriets son is turning into a nasty piece of work.

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 21-Mar-13 23:00:15

wasn't that alluded to last series?

He's very easily led. Can't remember what he's in for mind!

scarlettsmummy2 Thu 21-Mar-13 23:14:29

Harriet's son looks to young to be in there!

Is he in for drug offences? Feel so sorry for Harriet she keeps trying to get things right but it goes wrong. Where is her son's dad I wonder?

Didn't actually think last night's episode quite as gripping as the first one. Although the mum interfering with the boy who has accused her husband was quite nail biting. She's desperate isn't she, you would do anything to get him to tell the truth.

Unless he's already telling the truth shock

MsNobodyAgain Fri 22-Mar-13 09:01:32

Harriets husband got blown off a cliff when a gust of wind caught under his kagool.

She explained last night. It was quite funny.

NuhichNuhaymuh Fri 22-Mar-13 09:10:54

Harriet appeals to e more now than she did originally.

Was it drugs her sons in for (can't remember his name! Gavin?)

I think the football man's innocent myself. Im staying with that still.

Icelollycraving Fri 22-Mar-13 10:08:49

I am loving this series. Loved the first series too.
I have a crush on Francesca blush.
I think the coach is guilty. If your dh was innocent & the police came to your door & arrested him for being a paedophile,would he not look a bit more frightened/shocked not so resigned?
