Riveting! Well written by the Prime Suspect master, Lynda La Plante, and very well acted. Very consistent with Jeffrey Archer's famous Prison Diary series, which revealed how UK prisons mix young, small-time offenders, including the mentally retarded, with violent cons doing such a stretch they have little left to lose. Kinder, gentler fare than Oz, one of the greatest TV series ever - for those with a strong stomach - but not that much. Probably a very different situation today in the wake of the Europe's massive Muslim invasion and now daily terror attacks.
