After Diane Lockhart’s fall from grace, she starts at her new firm, where she gets a pretty frosty welcome from one partner.

Meanwhile, her protégé, Maia Rindell (Downton and Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie), has her first case and, after initial nerves, displays the same talent and inner steel that characterised Alicia Florrick in the original series.

The spin-off’s smart dialogue and entertaining courtroom battles will be familiar to Good Wife fans.
