    Loved the quote last week “About as much chance of Mouse becoming the first female Prime Minister” Was she?

    Doreen's gone missing again? Is she supposed to be in isolation, like Bea?

    I rather like Hazel Kent. It's so 1980s that when she has a bit of depression, she's expected to "snap out of it". Back in the good old days. And what a weak performance from that prison guard she attacked. I thought they were supposed to be able to handle the women. :)

    Doreen has been moved to the maternity wing. From memory, Collette Mann and Val Lehman did have some time off from Prisoner in 1982 so they could appear in a film called Kitty and The Bagman. Gerard Maguire who played Jim Fletcher also had a small role in this film.

    Anyone know if it was edited tonight when Conway knocked on the door and came in when the Gov, Powell and Faulkner were with Peterson, then it just chopped and Powell was having a different conversation with Erica? Strange.

    Would have been for an ad break when it was originally screened - 111Hits have edited out the gate slams that don't lead into one of their own ad breaks.

    Ahhh, I didn't know they were in that. Kitty And The Bagman is a movie I've been wanting to see. Unfortunately, it's not easy to get hold of. The lead role was played by Liddy Clark, who also had a small role in Prisoner.

    No, they hadnt resolved the first conversation and came in on what appeared to be mid way between the next.

    Absolutely. I just loved the demented grin on her face when she is strangling Judy Bryant.

    It's good to see some of Colleen Powell's home life. Her husband is played by prolific Australian actor Rob Steele, who has appeared in many TV commercials and had bit-parts in a good many TV series'. Often as a cop.

    The graffiti in the bungalow was very optimistic. "Pies in 81 82"

    Bea is looking really thin at the moment while Doreen is the fattest I have seen her in ages.

    The whole Sandy Driscoll story is a bit of a bore to be honest. Bring on the freak as the show needs something right now.

    Yeah, it's definitely going through a flat spot at the moment, but the flat spots never last for long it seems.

    I laughed when Colleen Powell complained that it cost her ten bucks to fill her car with petrol. (The pump actually said $7 as the guy charged her extra and ripped her off).

    The good news is this is pretty much the only flat spot for the '82 season. The first part is largely the Kate/Sandy/Marie story lines and the second part is The Freak, but in between we have to endure Susie Driscoll.

    did anyone see Mrs Powell in her see through nightie. Didn't leave much to the imagination and there was even a bit of nipple there. Not a bad bod on the old girl.

    A reporter comes claiming to be Helen Smarts brother and they gladly let him in. Security at Wentworth is still top notch I see. It takes the receptionist to work out something was up.

    Special mention for Helen Smart, I am afraid to report I have been having impure thoughts about her.

    I've been having impure thoughts about Helen Smart for years - the tart with a heart. One of my favourite characters in the show.
