In Babyface there is clearly something going on on North Wing, several of the inmates have suffered quite serious injuries, all of them claiming to be self inflicted. Faye and Dr Mayes are convinced that they were not self inflicted at all and that there is a concerted campaign of violence being conducted by possible more than one inmate.
While talking to elderly Beanie Dixon Miss Clarke discovers that there is a protection racket being run on the wing. Tough Mick Andrews is the prime suspect and Mrs Spencer catches her trying to intimidate Beanie.
Meanwhile Miss Flaxton, who left a while ago under something of a cloud, visits Faye and asks if will recommend her if she applies for the probationary service. Whilst she is waiting for her application to be processed Faye allows her to act as a prison visitor for a few weeks.
Although Mick Andrews has been disciplined and put in solitary the intimidation continues, its discovered that Donna Wyat is involved. Faye, Miss Clarke and Miss Flaxton confront Donna as she returns from her art class but she strikes out at Miss Flaxton with a pallet knife and badly injured her. She then takes Faye hostage in one of the cells.
It makes for a tense finale as Donna holds a knife to Faye’s throat, meanwhile Faye’s husband Bill and Paul are waiting at home thinking that Faye has once again allowed her job to take over. Although when Bill finds out what is going on he rushes straight over to the prison.
Faye’s son Paul is now being played by a different actor. Crispin Gillbard taking over from Nigel Crewe.
The week’s TV Times also had a short write up on Linda Marlowe who plays Mick Andrews, although this mainly focused on her starring role in the genre movie Big Zapper in which she played a karate kicking, magnum wielding private detective.
