The BBC's black comedy Back to Life tells the story of a woman who has just been released from prison after an 18-year sentence.

Although critics loved it when it originally aired in 2019, it didn't attract high viewing figures.

However, the show has enjoyed a new lease of life on Netflix, making its way into the Top Ten since landing on the streaming platform two weeks ago. As a result, there may be a second season on the way.

Joe O'Shea and Jennifer Gannon joined us for our weekly TV slot to discuss the ways in which Netflix has been giving certain shows a second chance.
