There was a brief discussion on the Telly Addicts Board in February but I thought this was worth posting in FWR as the subject of women's prisons comes up a lot.
This is as close as I have ever got to a women's prison so I don't know how to judge the Series on "realism". That said, it is one of the best things I have seen on TV for a long time.
