Well it doesn’t come as a huge surprise. The lovely @TeamRigby confirmed today that Prisoners’ Wives will have a second series, but without ‘Steve & Gemma’ appearing in it. Guess they have tied all the loose ends of their story and so this leaves room for some new characters to come in. That said will continue to float on river DeNial and just imagine those two have sorted it all out in the end anyway haha (yes really am a fan of happy endings lol )
But even without Jonas Armstrong and Emma Rigby, really glad the series will continue! Hope to see more of Harriet, Fran & Lou =)
Last sets of screen caps for Prisoners’ Wives now available in the gallery
I really like to take screen caps, and anyone saying it’s bloody hard work, is such a fibber in my opinion, as there’s nothing more fun & interesting to see Jonas at work in slow-motion!
I really cannot recommend it enough, to try and do it yourselves, it is really fascinating and the acting really is all in the eyes! *WOW*
Now with this episode, it was rather very sad , gosh if you thought watching those scenes were heartbreaking, you should see Jonas’s performance slowed down, it’s just argh , very sad indeed But again outstanding performance by Jonas Armstrong for making us grab the kleenex tissues (again lol).
Have posted many reviews from the press in an earlier post, but still some new ones from today.
Well not too bad, the series finale ended with a very healthy 4.3M viewers :D
It really was a showcase of very fine talented actors, and truly hope the BBC confirms series 2 very soon indeed, so we can get to see them all again
- Just look at the awesome review/preview from the Guardian =)
“An exhilarating conclusion to the superb, slow-burn series. As if she hadn’t been magnificent enough, tonight Emma Rigby’s visceral emoting may actually burst your television. Her character Gemma has quite the 24 hours as her narrative spirals out of control. Meanwhile, Harriet (the brilliant Pippa Haywood) starts to find her confidence and Franny (the regal Polly Walker) finds herself back on easy street, but at what price? The writing of this episode is supremely skilful and the direction is sublime. Addictive stuff. We’ll be needing another series, thanks. Julia Raeside”
- Another raving review =)
It would be a crime not to have a second series of this arresting drama!
There’s so much going on in this final episode that the hour flies by! Baddie Andy puts the frighteners on heavily pregnant Gemma to make her withdraw her police statement. DC Hunter wants to whisk her into witness protection, but before she can decide if she wants to go down that route, a nail-biting chain of events brings the storyline to a climax. Elsewhere, a reluctant Fran gets involved with Paul’s dodgy business, Harriet (finally!) makes a move on prison chaplain Ian and Lou faces her fate. A wonderfully acted and superbly written drama.
