Prisoner Cell Block H

Postby Mike Nuttall » Sun Jan 12, 2014 9:17 pm

Good evening ladies,

Sorry to interrupt your recreation period but I have received a mee-mo from Mr Douglas at The Department regarding Planet Mondas Forum.

You will be allowed to discuss Prisoner Cell Block H on this thread during your recreation time but only if you continue to behave yourselves. Please remember this is a privilege and my officers will be monitoring the situation and anyone found abusing my good faith will be given extra cleaning duties or placed in solitary confinement.

That is all.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

The best thing about Prisoner is spotting all the actors and actresses who play multiple parts in the series.

Margot Knight first appeared as Sharon Gilmour, Judy Bryant's love interest who was murdered by the evil Jock Stewart (aye, remember me, lassie ??). She then appeared again later in the run as a Officer Terri Malone who led Joan Ferguson a merry dance.

Anne Charleston first appears as "Mum" Brooks' snobby uncaring daughter Lorraine Watkins, then as a policewoman and finally as Reb Keen's Mother, Deidre.

Julie Blake appears as herbalist poisoner Evelyn Randall, uptight halfway house manageress Alice Dodds and goodie-two-shoes inmate Nancy McCormack.

Ian Smith appears as Ted Douglas from The Department, PIxie Mason's vicar Father and finally as a policeman who turns up to escort Joan Ferguson off the premises in the final episode.

Anne Phelan first appears as Officer Manson then inmate Bernadette and finally Myra Desmond from the PRG who gets banged up and becomes Top Dog.

Maurie Fields plays Uncle Arch, Maurie (Fay Quinn's friend) and evil Officer Len Murphy who gives Joan a run for her money.

There must be more !!

Ray Meagher played 3 characters in Prisoner, IIRC!

Geoff Butler (who terrorised Meg), Kurt Renner (gangland boss in Sonia Steven's time) and Ernest Craven (corrupt governor of Blackmoor).

Given all the baddies he played, it must have been a bit of relief for Ray to play "goodie" Alf in Home and Away!

Yes he did. I saw him as Bob in Priscilla Queen of the Desert in the West End last year and very good he was too !

One of my favourite things is spotting the mistakes. Spikeyroberto on Youtube has kindly put together about 15 volumes of "Prisoner Cell Block H gaffes".

Embedding has been disabled unfortunately but they are worth watching. Some of them are hysterical.

Kate Peterson wins hands down in the crazy stakes.

if only there was some sort of Doctor Who/Prisoner crossover episode I know you are wondering!

Wait, I the Professor have had such an adventure! In fact, I've had a couple! The most notable being when I said goodbye to my companion Sonual in 'Sonual's Swansong'.

Jo Grant leaves in the Green Death, but this time with a bit of Prisoner incidental music.

(2nd attempt here guys, so apologies if you didn't have chance to see the first one).

Joan Ferguson was the best one in it.

A handsome looking woman too.

Two years before she appeared as Ann Reynolds in the series Gerda Nicolson played Officer Roberts, one of the officers at Barnhurst.

We could play this game forever more. Kirsty Child plays officer Anne Yates very early on and ends up being arrested and sent to Wentworth where she ends up in the spin-dryer. Later on she pops up as Glynis Johnson for a couple of episodes before returning one final time as Willie Beecham during the dull as dish water era.

I've just reached that era of the show and you're so right... dull as dishwater !!

Any Cell Block H fans recognise this piece of music ?? Sound familiar at all ?? ...

I don't mind the characters so much as what they did with them and the awful dialogue they were given....with one exception. Nora. Can't stand her one way or the other.

Willie and May are constantly arguing and Nora is now "Top Dog".

It will be over soon with only Julie left from that lot. There's a great bit of hand acting coming from Nora. Not sure it's actually the hand of the actress playing her which is probably why it was so good. :lol:
