'When Ferguson takes her revenge on the prisoners by bulldozing the garden project, Doreen turns her anger on Franky. Ferguson psychologically manipulates Vera and she crosses a point of no return whilst Maxine orchestrates a desperate bid to see her spurned lover.

'Franky accuses Ferguson of deliberately giving Simmo a hotshot, but Ferguson wrests back the power by letting Franky know she's got a snitch in the ranks.'

As Wentworth Slips Quietly Onto the ABC, the Series Still Asks Tough Questions about Gender Politics Sue Turnbull , 2018 single work column
— Appears in: The Conversation , 18 April 2018;

'In early March, the ABC issued a press release announcing that the “multi-award-winning Australian drama Wentworth” would make its free to air television debut on April 12. “This ground-breaking and much acclaimed Foxtel drama”, it went on, has not only been enormously popular “worldwide”, but also garnered a swag of nominations and awards, including one from the Monte Carlo TV festival. Somehow overseas recognition still seems to count for so much more when it comes to assessing the value and impact of Australian screen productions.'
