The eighth series of British drama series Bad Girls premiered on ITV on 13 July 2006. This, the final series, consists of eleven episodes which concluded with a Christmas special on 20 December 2006.
Series Eight introduces Amanda Donohoe (Lou Stoke), Sid Owen (Donny Kimber), Colin Salmon (Rowan Dunlop) and Angela Bruce (Mandy Goodhue). James Gaddas appears for the final time as Neil Grayling in the first episode in a guest appearance.
This series does not follow the previous series and commences with new storylines leaving several unresolved answers as to the fate of Di Barker, who was accused of the murder of Jim Fenner, and Arun Parmer, who was to serve a three-year sentence at Larkhall. Initially, the story was to be set three years following the previous series. However, this is not evident. Although, it may explain why Arun is not present as she may have completed her sentence.
