This comedy is set entirely in the visiting room of the prison HMP Radford Hill, where cunning and mischievous inmates do dodgy drug deals and snatch conjugal rights whilst their loved ones visit. All this activity happens under the watchful gaze of a bunch of bored and lazy Prison Officers doing the bare minimum to get the job done.Written by

Nobody says "Bloody Hell" quite as well as John Henshaw.
A 'laugh out loud' comedy, winding through the lives of prison officers, prisoners and their families. The entire program run is filmed in one room, the families visitors area of a 'Cat C' prison called HMC Radford Hill.
Americans will be shocked at just how open and 'caring' our prison system is... so will many British viewers!
A terrific cast, addictive characters, great stories and oodles of comedic moments fill out this seven part comedy 'sit-com'. Unfortunately not many people have seen it, and to date (eleven years on) THIS is the only review on IMDB!
All the actors are fun to watch, but perhaps my favorite is the brilliant turn put in by Naomi Radcliff. She plays the mother of three whose inmate husband has the IQ of a bus. Her facial expressions are hilarious!
Gems like this get buried under a mountain of reality codswallop and slickly produced farcical dramas. I came across this yesterday and binge-watched the entire series in one go. And I'll watch it again very soon, too!
If you like this you'll love 'Early Doors' also starring John Henshaw.
