As the first series of the Good Wife spin-off comes to an end – a second has been commissioned – it has, in our judgement, been a worthy successor to the original.

Just like The Good Wife, its cases are up to the minute – this week’s finale revolves around a possible cyber attack on Chicago’s power grid.

And like Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) before her, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) is someone you want to root for as she rebuilds her life following a scandal that was not of her making.

But will Diane’s young protégé Maia (Rose Leslie, Game of Thrones), daughter of disgraced investment advisor Henry Rindell (CSI’s Paul Guilfoyle), fare so well?
