Wentworth Prison Series 1 Review “The Girl Who Waited”

After the relatively gentle sweetness of Doreen’s story on last week’s Wentworth, here we get fellow prisoner Franky’s tale of woe – and didn’t we just know it’d be tough going? I’m surprised that the show would air its most powerful character this early on in the series, if I’m honest, but hopefully it means that, with the audience knowing more about her character, we’ll get to enjoy her interactions with others going forward.

In prison for attacking a celebrity chef in the middle of a reality show – leaving him with third degree burns via a pan of hot oil – we start to get a sense of where Franky’s rage has been coming from. The chef might have been her biggest victim, but it’s her parents that did the original damage. Her mother an alcoholic who physically abused her daughter and her father having abandoned the pair of them when it all got too much, Franky can’t exactly be described as emotionally stable.
