Prisoner Cell Block H: Volume 10 - Episodes 289-320
Episodes 289-320 of the long-running Australian soap. Set within the walls of Wentworth Detention Centre for Women, the show offers an unflinching portrayal of issues including racism, domestic abuse, violence and rape. In this volume Joan 'Freak' Ferguson (Maggie Kirkpatrick) well and truly settles into her role in the prison, dealing out beatings and punishment galore. The arrival of a new prisoner, Maxine Daniels (Lisa Crittenden), sheds some light on Joan's past and the forces which have made her the tyrant she is. Outside the prison, meanwhile, the opening of the halfway house leads to violence, drug deals and police intervention.
