The Screen Guide

With her low-flying Solicitor’s practice incinerated by a disgruntled client, her marriage collapsing and motherhood fast losing its charm… Josephine Deeds’ old uni’ friend and not-so-secret admirer, Lewis Hughes, persuades her to resume her briefly glorious career at the Bar. As she rises to the challenge, though, Josephine realises it’s not so easy to leave her lame ducks behind. ‘Back to the Bar’ is the ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ of legal dramas - fuelled episodically by the illuminating contrast between the lucrative barristers’ caseload upstairs and the often haphazard or unfortunate legal tangles unravelled in the solicitor’s office two storeys below – and spiced with the ongoing frisson between Josephine and the seductive man she knows she should never ever fall for.
