I quite enjoyed the first series a couple of years ago but didn't realise it had been commissioned for a second. Looking forward to it tonight, and Nicola's wardrobe too!

Remind me how it ended please - she’d left her husband and was about to go back to old flame chap?? Her current firm had also just bought out her mother’s hadn’t it??

@Justfivemoreminutesplease Here's a quick recap.

I just came looking specifically for this thread! Last series was imperfect but so enjoyable. The outfits alone!

Much excitement BUT will probably not be able to start watching til 9.30 😒

Great recap Queen - thanks for the link.

Looking forward to the start of the second series later this evening and of course salivating over all the beautiful clothes.

Nicola's skirt with the exposed zip! It was the first time I've seen her play a glamorous character - I guess she had had enough of her detective clothes!

I remember liking the first series, but cannot for the life of me remember what it was about, other that something with her father, Giles from Buffy?

EineReiseDurchDieZeit Tue 11-Feb-20 20:13:53

The dad had abandoned them as children and gone with a much younger woman and moved to America

The main character (Nicola Walker) Hannah had quit the family firm for a fresh start, but this led to personal and professional complications because her mother was hiding the fact the family firm was going under.

Hannah had a situationship with a colleague but felt guilty because she was married to boring Stephen Mangan. She then discovered he'd been cheating and was on an Ashley Madison type list. Did he also try it on with her sister?

Eventually her firm bought out her family firm so now she has to work with her Mum and sister again.

Younger sister is a flake who nearly didnt go through with her wedding and I think snogged the vicar

The Dad came back for her wedding and died.

She left her sisters wedding to shag fit colleague.

Meera Syal and Stephen Tompkinson were the ongoing divorce case. He had a kid by her best friend and she had no idea.

Think that's it.

ChardonnaysDistantCousin Tue 11-Feb-20 20:35:16

Oh yes, I remember Meera Syal.

Out of curiosity, EineZeitReise do you remember all that form watching last year? If so, you have an amazing memory.

EineReiseDurchDieZeit Tue 11-Feb-20 20:38:24


I have got a pretty good memory!

Did he try it on with the sister though?

That's the bit I can't quite remember

I'm here for the wardrobe! I saw a Nicola Walker on Lorraine and she was going on about how great her wardrobe is for this show. I'm going to put on the kettle and decide on snacks before I get settled down to watch.

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 11-Feb-20 21:00:03

@EineReiseDurchDieZeit Yes, he tried it on with the middle sister.
