Switch is an upbeat comedy-drama about four young witches trying to make their way in the big city where they live in Camden, North London. They want to live a modern life, not one based on their mother's old-fashioned rituals. But modern life presents serious problems, and the girls cannot help casting the occasional spell to try to sort things out.
The main cast is made up of four fun-loving flatmates in Camden, North London. Each of the witches represents an element that handily provides a summarization of their character.
On a card given by Stella to Hannah in the first episode, the girl's birthdays are as follows:
The six-part first series began filming in April 2012 for 11 weeks in London, Cardiff and Bristol, and concluded in July. It was announced on Lacey Turner's official Twitter support page 'Lacey Turner Fans' that it would not continue for a second series.
Louisa Mellor of Den of Geek wrote a mixed review; "Though it's frothier than Being Human and nowhere as near the knuckle as Misfits, it's original UK genre TV and as such, we welcome it with open arms." She also named Fox and Turner as the stand-outs of the series.
The series premier which was watched by 574,000 viewers and 62,000 an hour later, performed well above the slot average of 440,000 (2.4%) for the past 12 months and was also the most-watched show on the channel across the day.
