Nun brought to Wentworth after her arrest at a nuclear disarmament rally, and is promptly assaulted by Frank Burke, though the sight of her crucifix under her blouse gives him a moment's pause (526). She shares cell with Lou Kelly who is constantly trying to undermine her "holier-than-thou" surface, but unfortunately her sanctimoniousness usually wins out. Her struggles with her conscience and sexuality are supposedly the "point" of her character, but her main function is to lag on Myra Desmond's framing of Joan Ferguson for an assault on Lou and allow Joan to live another day and to visit Joan in hospital (537) to effect Joan's transformation into a creature with finer feelings.

Anita Selby is played by Diane Craig
