Writers Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh take Hannah Verdier into the telly clinks that inspired their new BBC3 sitcom.
1 Good lawyers? Forget it
Ideally, you'd want someone like Julie Walters from The Jury as your QC, but most prison show lawyers are rubbish. Actually, they never showed the courtroom in Prisoner: Cell Block H; you just went straight into the scene where you're bundled out of the van at Wentworth and examined by the handsome doctor. The lawyer in Dead Boss is obviously an idiot, but he's family. He's got an air of Doc from Back To The Future about him. Basically, he's useless.
