Breaking Bad's finale left its millions of fans bereft - and not just because Walter White (the excellent Bryan Cranston) died, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) played so little part in the final episode.

Five years wincing at Walt's white Y-fronts and Jesse's downward spiral; five years of viewing a show as addictive as the crystal meth the two men expertly cooked - little wonder many are crying 'what do I watch now'?

Luckily for Breaking Bad fanatics, creator/writer/director/producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have the answer. They will be filling the hole left by Breaking Bad with eagerly-anticipated 2014 spin-off Better Call Saul, focusing on actor Bob Odenkirk's scheming lawyer Saul Goodman.

From the second we clapped eyes on him, there was something about Saul Goodman that clicked with fans. Maybe it was the sleaze-factor, which oozed out of him like pus. Or the insincere sales patter, which gave the show unexpected moments of hilarity ("Faith and begorrah! A fellow potato eater! My real name's McGill. The Jew thing I just do for the homeboys. They all want a pipe-hitting member of the tribe, so to speak.").

Either way, as the Cheers producers did with Frasier, Vince Gilligan has decided to take arguably the least expected character forward. But what do we know and what do we hope to see in this Breaking Bad spin-off?
