Wentworth Prison: Season 7 [Blu-ray]

|Number of discs||2|
Tough, gritty and totally compelling, this hard-edged re-imagining of the iconic Prisoner: Cell Block H remains unmissable drama.
Following season six's bloody finale the prison is on the brink of imploding as the fiery confrontation between Rita and Marie is imminent. The onset of Liz's dementia finds her clutching at any semblance of hope while Boomer has to deal with the fall-out from her broken family. With the Joan Ferguson case closed, a significantly pregnant Vera and her co-conspirators in The Freak's demise, Will and Jake, are off the hook at least for now...

Personally, I prefer 'Wentworth' to 'Orange'; as it is grittier, yet still has humour (there is a reason why this dvd is certified 18).
The inclusion of Aborigine tradition has been fascinating, and Leah Purcell as Rita Connor is such a good actress. It is also fun learning about common words and phrases of another country: far out, sook, and spoof (thanks Boom Booms) stick in my mind.
I'm still confused about the ending though, - (no spoiler alerts here) - and hope that the talented writing team have not outdone themselves.
When we have a cure for this flaming bug, roll on season eight. I just hope Vera Bennett (played wonderfully by Kate Atkinson) is allowed some lasting happiness. How much more can one woman take?!!
But what really drives this drama are the characters. They’re so real that it’s difficult to think of them as actors. Boomer Jenkins is crass, vulgar, funny and also touching. She personifies the role she plays so well that we forget she’s acting. The same is true of all cast and they are totally plausible. There’s strong plotting with recurring storylines and great development. Brilliant all round.
This three disc dvd has bonus material on a couple of the discs. Disc 2 features behind the scenes on set; a fascinating glimpse of characters, the actors, their props and the actual set. Disc 3 has cast interviews. Both are worth a watch and add to the watching experience.
Absolutely love this show. Being a fan of original Prisoner Cell Block H, it's great to see a lot of main characters but with different background stories & the actresses who play parts now like Marie Winter, Sonia Stevens, Rita Connors, Vera Bennett have made their versions of the characters just as great as the originals.
Even if you have never seen PCBH, this stands out on it's own as an original & brilliant show to watch. Highly recommended
