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

I think Harriet's son Gavin was seen as lonely and odd and got in with a bad lot. He agreed to hide a gun in his house for them. Harriet found it and told the police - I think she did not realise Gavin would go to prison. A lot of his resentment and her guilt about him in series 1 was about this.

I love Prisoner's wives - so glad it's got a second series. Although I have always thought that Frannie's son is miscast - not charasmatic enough to lure in the girls like he does.

You're not wrong there. He's far to boyish.

As DH said when he was in the back of the van with the pretty daughter of his dad's cell mate "well he's punching well above his weight"

Brilliant last night. I can't believe a TV series has got me rooting for a gangster's wife and hoping the police will fall on their arse. I just want Fran to be Queen of the world.

Anne thingy off Dinnerladies is good isn't she? She's always plays such a naice lady and here she is being bloody NAILS.

Wonderful series- they certainly did the right thing in keeping Fran and the Miller family on board.

It's very good. I hope the molester isn't innocent. I'm uncomfortable with the idea of child abuse being used as a plot twist.

Of course, thanks MrsNobody - I'm on strong 'flu tablets at the mo, had completely forgotten that from last night.

Hadn't realised it was back on, off to watch on iplayer now.

PseudoBadger Fri 22-Mar-13 23:13:28

I reckon that it's the guy she's having the affair with who actually assaulted the boy....

My friend worked on this series (and the first), I love it!

Ellenora5 Sat 23-Mar-13 01:38:27

I'm still not sure about the coach at all, I knew the minute she took the little lad for a burger that it would back fire on her, I don't like her much anyway, does she ever blink, the man she had the affair with is definitely dodgy. I'm wondering did he set the whole thing up.

I have an awful feeing that Gavin is going to kill the vicar. He is so easily led that I think he will do anything he is told.

Agree also about Frans son, he looks like a 15 year old, when I was watching I thought to myself why couldn't they have made him look older and more believable. Can't wait for next week!!

I agree something bad will happen to the vicar

I loved the way Harriet delivered the story about how her husband died. She makes me think of my lab , when she smiles she's so happy and trusting and innocent. But a little part of me wondered whether she might have pushed her husband off the cliff grin

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 24-Mar-13 19:39:41

Wonder if ever found his body

Also wondering if best friend / boyfriend set up coach?

TheBrocoliIsStillRaw Sun 24-Mar-13 20:18:03

Hadn't thought of that (boyfriend did it/set him up. I am liking this series so far. Interested to see how it pans out.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 24-Mar-13 21:58:26

shame only 4 episodes - so 2 left sad

BenjaminButton172 Mon 25-Mar-13 21:20:15

Havent seen this weeks episode and had no idea that it was a follow on from the first series. wonder if it will still be on iplayer.

It did say on my tv guide that an innocent football coach gets sent to prison.

Boggler Thu 28-Mar-13 22:55:19

Bloody brilliant tonight, so much is happening can't imagine how it's going to end next week.

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 28-Mar-13 22:58:21

poor vicar man! hows this going to effect their relationship now? I'd say Gavins in trouble now.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 29-Mar-13 20:30:02

Just watched. The woman that plays Harriet is brilliant.

The last episode will be frantic with all the loose ends they have to tie up.

Ellenora5 Sat 30-Mar-13 00:02:01

It's a pity there are only four episodes, but I think it's leaving a way open for a third series. Frans husband will get even longer in prison for his involvement in the murder and Gavin will also because of kicking forty shades out of the priest. It seems that the next door neighbour will do the right thing and get non blinky eye womans husband out of prison (apologies again for not remembering names blush)

I hope Harriet and the Vicar stay together, and I agree she is a brilliant actress, she was in Mr Selfridge wasn't she.

Now I'm off to google to check something, but the girl who plays Lauren has the same surname as a Sally in Corrie and her hubby who writes/produces Emmerdale. I could be totally wrong of course but need to check anyway.

Ellenora5 Sat 30-Mar-13 00:04:52

Yep it's her, she was in Waterloo Road aswell but I stopped watching that a long time ago. Nosiness is a terrible thing grin

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-Mar-13 15:33:54

finally caught up

cant beleive gavin gave the vicar a kicking shock and harriets acting via the crisps/knife - shes good

always rem her in somecomedy set in a leisure centre and she was the wife of the boss who had think tons of kids

so coach is innocent,as neighbour said she didnt think it would go that far

sad the dad died

who was the bloke at the end who front door got busted and had to lie on the floor

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Thu 04-Apr-13 22:11:31

Humph, was hoping for a happy ending for Harriet, mind you it does look as though she was better off without the vicar.

PseudoBadger Thu 04-Apr-13 22:17:46

I thought it was implied that she was maybe moving to be with him? I cried when she said goodbye to Gavin, her little boy sad

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Thu 04-Apr-13 22:23:35

Ah she have Pseudo, I had to get up to let the dog out into the garden at the crucial moment so might have missed something grin

Yep, that was moving, had a little choke then. Guess they won't be making a third series sad

Bluelightsandsirens Thu 04-Apr-13 22:31:43

I'm loving it again, such good acting all round and pleased at the outcome for the football coach and family this evening.

Ellenora5 Thu 04-Apr-13 23:38:06

I thought it was a great episode, I had a few tears when Harriet was saying goodbye to Gavin, but she did the right thing, I think the Vicar has gone and she was selling up so she could move on in all ways.

There might be a third series now that Matt is in prison, the twat, why didn't he just keeping going out the door with Lauren instead of shooting someone.

We can only wait and see, but if it comes back we can revive this threadsmile
