For those missing stylish legal drama The Good Wife, this spin-off series from the same creative team will do much to fill the void.

There’s no Julianna Margulies (Alicia Florrick is simply mentioned in passing): instead, the action centres on one of our favourite Good Wife characters – Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski).

The classy Chicago lawyer was planning on a comfortable retirement but then loses everything in an investment scam.

So, like Alicia before her, she has to start all over again with the only law firm that will have her.

There is a nice balance of old and new faces in a series that is just as smart, sophisticated and entertaining as the original.
