Hi. I watched Prisoners Wives but I honestly preferred the first series as I thought it was more realistic. In my opinion, the BBC needn't have added their own spin to the stories because if they really did their homework, there are enough devastating true stories without the programme being listed as a drama. I too have seen the new prison documentary advertised on BBC 1 which starts this Monday. I will be watching it with fingers crossed that it gives the public a real insight to what it is like being released from prison. My partner was released last year and he is still in his own little world and prefers to be left alone on many occasions which puts a strain on our family life.
I will be watching it with eagle eyes and interest. Best Wishes Nina
