  • ScreenTerrier
Filming is currently underway in the Isle of Man on new Cbbc drama The Knot, for which a casting call was placed on Screenterrier back in April.

The Prisoners’ Wives season finale began with the psychotic Andy (Anthony Flanagan) popping around to do some Diy work at Gemma’s (Emma Rigby) house. While he was there he also encouraged her to withdraw the statement she had made to the police that incriminated her murderous husband. The poor girl attempted to comply with his demands before being strong armed into testifying but it nearly ended in tears as Andy almost burst in on Gemma as she gave birth in a public bathroom.

While things (sort of) worked out for Gemma, Francesca’s (Polly Walker) desire for the high life saw her make choices that lead to trouble for her father and her kids. Meanwhile, Lou (Natalie Gavin) and her man switched places as she went to jail just as he was released.

BBC Review: Prisoners’ Wives Episode Five

Prisoners' Wives

Click here to friend Best British TV on Facebook or here to follow us on Twitter.

Episode five of Prisoners’ Wives was the most dramatic of the season thus far. The female quartet had to contend with feelings of guilt, shame, failure and loneliness while their fellows were less successful at controlling their own feelings of anger, jealousy, betrayal and lust. Once again, Pippa Haywood was very strong in her scenes with her troubled son Gavin (Adam Gillen). The duo sometimes get lost among the bigger name actors but their volatile mother-son relationship has become one of the linchpins of Prisoners’ Wives.

With one episode left, Gemma (Emma Rigby) is in mortal danger as Jonas Armstrong has realized that she is the snitch. Can she rely on to DS Hunter (Andrew Tiernan) to keep her safe from the deranged Andy (Anthony Flanagan)? More to the point
