Episode Summary

Episode 358
AIRED:
Aware Bea is on the loose in Sydney, the cops turn up at Doreen's to see if Bea has contacted her. They put a guard on her flat to watch for Bea, and assign an undercover policewoman to work with Dor in the dress shop. Doreen outsmarts them all, and to her surprise a disguised Bea turns up at the shop to see her. Nola starts dealing, but Maxine blows it by smoking a joint in the Laundry: it goes through the air-conditioning, and both Colleen and Erica smell it. They wait until Joan goes to a doctor's appointment before holding a cell search, suspecting her of being involved. When Joan returns and finds out what's been going on, she demands a cut of Nola's profits. Lainie impresses the man at her interview until he sees her tattoos. Judy wants the Department to start a tattoo removal scheme. A distraught Lainie then tries to burn the tattoos off her arms with caustic soda.moreless

    8.0
    Nola becomes a success with the women when she commences selling grass. Just as Erica convinces the department to help some of the women to have unwanted tattoo's removed, Lainie despairs and tries to use caustic soda on hers, and collapses with pain, as she fails yet another interview when she accidentally reveals her tattoo's. Aware that Bea is in Sydney, the police call in on old friend Doreen, who's flatmate is less than pleased with the fact she is sharing with an ex con, later, Bea arrives at Doreen's place of work. Cue a traditional funny Doreen sketch when she clambers into the police car that has been trailing her because "they are going the same way"moreless

    • This was the first episode to be screened by new ITV station Carlton Television, airing on Tuesday 5 January 1993. Carlton had replaced Thames four days earlier and continued from where Thames had left off. Carlton reduced Prisoner to one episode a week on Tuesday nights and treated the show appallingly. After screening this episode, they did not screen the next episode until 26 January, the show was off for six weeks in 1995, there was an eight-week gap between episodes 499 and 500, the show was off for nine weeks between December 1997 and February 1998, and several times they had two and three-week gaps between episodes. Carlton never completed the series despite promising to. They stopped at episode 598 in August 1998.

    • Doreen returns for a 3 episode guest spot, and no matter what your opinion of her, she certainly helps liven this current load of drivel up no end. I love her flatmate demanding she pays more for food cos Dor eats more than her (snigger). Poor old Dor.
