Prisoners’ Wives is listed in Digital Spy’s 5 shows not to miss this week!


Prisoners’ Wives: Tuesday at 9pm on BBC One
If you’re wondering what Prisoners’ Wives is all about… well, take a look at yourself. It’s right there in the title! Yes, the show focuses on a group of women with partners in prison. It could be awful, but somehow it turns into something pretty compelling and entertaining (and it’s not too worthily ‘gritty’ or depressing, either). The stars are all great, too – Green Wing’s Pippa Haywood is intriguing, Polly Walker is super fun, Natalie Gavin is heartbreaking and Emma Rigby is our perfect wide-eyed guide into the life behind the headlines. Plus with prisoners being played by Iain Glen and Jonas Armstrong, you can’t really go wrong!
