Actress Monica Maughan has died. She's best known in the UK for playing the nice-but-dull inmate Pat O'Connell in Prisoner Cell Block H.


Vinegar Tits my dear, you may be interested in the great Prisoner reunion of 2011:

Great watch!

My sister picked Patsy King (governor Erica Davidson) in her DDP list so I'm very pleased to see she's looking in fine health. Quite surprised at how old Elspeth Ballantyne (Saint Meg) looked however - I know she's a couple of years older than most of the cast, Davo and Lizzie excepted, but she seemed and sounded rather frail.

 

I was a massive fan of Prisoner Cell Block H when it was on late at night in the UK.Never missed an episode.Lizzie was my favourite character

 

Vinegar Tits, NaG and the other "Prisoner" fans on this thread will be interested/shocked/horrified to learn that one of the stars of the show is up on child sex charges, according to this morning's news headlines:

"In a statement, police confirmed the 74-year-old had been charged with two counts of indecent assault and one count of gross indecency with a person under 16."

 

 

Maybe she really will end up being a prisoner!

Ok my Australian friends, I need some help here (unless anyone actually has a news story on this).
 
There is a death notice for Alex Scott, actor, here: http://tributes.thea...x?pid=175190011
 
I think it's the same guy, the sons mentioned on his wiki page tie in with the names on the death notice, published 1 July.
 
He was in Romper Stomper and The Abominable Dr Phibes, in respect of the latter he was in Phibes with Edward Burnham whose death was just announced.
 
Any fairly decent news Down Under to confirm?

I had a quick look and couldn't see it in any of the major news sources, mate.
