Series 1, Episode 2 - Sparring Partners

Gerry has really warmed to Jenny and says that her letters are the best thing that has happened to him inside, even better than his TV soaps.
But after the disastrous phone call, is it all over before it has really started?

Further details

Their letters continue, and the couple (a couple? Too soon?) find out more about each other as they share the intimate secrets about their private lives. They are both trapped in their own lives, but find freedom and solace in each other. Do such different people have enough in common to make a relationship like this work, and will a death in the family change everything?
