From dealing with inmate violence and clearing out defiled prison cells to the unsavoury nature of prison language and life this is an even more detailed look inside Britain's most infamous prison. Through it all David retains his wry humour and offers a much-needed assessment of the state of UK prisons today the job crisis and poor recruitment the corruption and gangs running rife and the mental health epidemic hitting prisoners causing many to take their own lives. Guiding us in episodic fashion through the various wings of Parkhurst prison we witness the horrifying disgusting and often hilarious life of a prison officer through David's own eyes.
