  • Thanks to Jeff Tuck for pointing out a "hollow wall" moment when Judy, Doreen and Hazel bash Kate. When she stumbles out of the cell and hits the wall, you get to hear the thud of plasterboard yet again.

    Thanks also to David Breeze for pointing out a line fluff by Val Lehman who Bea says "Thanks, Kate" to Janet Conway (played by Kate Sheil).

    ... but it's only Meg. Lizzie tells Meg that she's scared, and explains about the moving plants, and the knocking sounds. Meg goes inside to investigate and finds a cat. Doreen isn't happy to be in the same cell where Linda hanged herself and wants Judy to swap beds with her. Kate and Sandy manage to break the kettle, but Bea isn't feeling well, and lets it go by. Lizzie explains about the telephone calls, but Meg thinks she may have found the explanation when she notices that Lizzie has sherry in the house. As soon as Meg leaves, the telephone rings again. Meg asks Bea for help regarding Lizzie, but Bea says that she is sorry but it isn't really her problem. Gordon visits Lizzie, and she tells him about what's been happening, but when he leaves he tinkers with the fuse box outside. Meg goes to see Lizzie, and helps her to fix the TV which isn't working, eventually discovering the problem with the fuse. When the woman are assembled in the rec room, Judy and Doreen beat up Sandy, and Bea sits and watches. Janet sends Judy and Doreen back to their cells. Bea persuades Janet not to punish them, and asks for a new TV, as the old one got damaged in the fight. Janet says she can get one from her brother. Jim arranges another date with Janet. Jim asks Bea what has takes place, but she says he should ask Judy. Doreen tries to draw Judy's portrait. Bea tells the women that they be getting a new TV. Judy and Doreen gather some of the prisoners together to make plans to put a stop to Sandy. Judy says that it is important that no-one gets to know about her pacemaker. Kate sees that Bea has a headache. The new TV arrives from Conway Discounts. Bea gets tablets from the Sister. Kate is bashed by Judy, Doreen and Hazel. When Sandy gets to hear about that, she promises to get even, if Kate is with her. Kate agrees.
