It’s the Summer Solstice and the girls go to Grace (Phoebe Fox) and Hannah’s (Hannah Tointon) hometown of Lower Sooth to celebrate. Hannah is disappointed when her mum, Esme (Imogen Stubbs) is nowhere to be found, Grace is shocked when Gerry (Jamie Davis) turns up despite them casting a spell so that he wouldn’t and Jude (Nina Toussaint-White) is looking forward to a bit of excitement in the forest with her first love, Jack (Howard Charles). But these are the least of their concerns when the Witches of Kensington arrive – with Alexa’s mother, Karina (Diana Kent) in tow. This super-coven is set on bringing the Witches of Camden down. Before the longest night of the year is out, there is a scandalous showdown to survive and some shocking home truths to be shared.

Grace (Phoebe Fox) and Gerry’s (Jamie Davis) relationship seems to be blooming nicely. Having just split up with Gerry herself, Jude (Nina Toussaint-White) is feeling weird about this. When she calls Mike (Kevin Bishop) over, she’s looking for some no-strings comfort sex, but she gains so much more. Hannah (Hannah Tointon) takes up tutoring with a little magical twist and gains Tuppence (Lilly Lucia Ainsworth) – a privileged, precocious and pretty lonely pupil. Grace’s anxiety levels reach fever pitch when she becomes convinced that Gerry doesn’t like her as much as she likes him. Stella (Lacey Turner) is set on finding her one true love through efficient means. When things inevitably go disastrously wrong, it’s time to reach for that spell book!

Switch is an upbeat, comedy drama series about a coven of witches living in the heart of Camden. Stella (Lacey Turner), Grace (Phoebe Fox), Jude (Nina Toussaint-White) and Hannah (Hannah Tointon) are best friends trying to make their way in the big smoke – forging friendships, negotiating love lives and beating out career paths. They’re trying to live a modern life, not one based on their mothers’ old rituals, but modern life has its problems. Luckily, with a spell book nestled on the shelf, these girls have got a better chance than most of adding a little bit of magic to their lives.
Episode one:
Stella (Lacey Turner) is in deep trouble. Summoning the girls home with a “Switch” text, she’s desperate to cast a spell to save her skin. Hannah (Hannah Tointon) flies home from India, Jude (Nina Toussaint-White) abandons customers in work while Grace’s (Phoebe Fox) romantic encounter is interrupted. With chaos under control and buoyed by initial success, Stella’s confident enough to stand up to her boss, Janet (Amanda Drew). She gets sacked. The Witches of Camden cast another spell, but rusty after months of being apart, it results in a magical race against time to undo their own mistakes. When Grace’s mum, Gloria (Caroline Quentin), turns up out of the blue Grace is forced to cut the apron strings or be a mummy’s girl forever. Meanwhile commitment-phobe Hannah must choose between life on the road or life with her coven.
