Vexed: Series 1
Toby Stephens (Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) is D.I. Jack Armstrong, and Lucy Punch (Hot Fuzz, Doc Martin) plays D.I. Kate Bishop in a fresh approach to the cop drama. As they hunt for a serial killer who targets lonely women, investigate the attempted murder of a cranky banker, and cope with a high-profile kidnapping, Jack and Kate learn about each other, disagree on almost everything, and discover they're not such an odd couple after all. Featuring a sexy, attractive cast, and sprinkled with jokes and repartee, Vexed is "more comedy than drama...[and] lots of fun" (The Times, U.K.). 3 episodes, 1 DVD, approx. 180 minutes, SDH.
Three single women are murdered, and the only link between them is a credit card. To flush out the killer, Kate acts as bait. Easy access to credit-card records proves tempting for both detectives, but the ill-gotten information jeopardizes their love lives and threatens their relationship.
Someone is trying to kill a banker being treated for depression at a private rehab clinic. Working the case, Jack is predictably dismissive of therapy, but Kate has a different perspective; she's in counseling to save her marriage. Jack's flirtation with the clinic director leads to a depressing discovery.
A member of a popular girl band has been kidnapped, and the perpetrator demands that Kate deliver the ransom money. Due to Jack's carelessness, the drop goes wrong, and Kate finally snaps. Meanwhile, Kate's husband wants to start over, and Jack obsesses over losing something important to him.

"Cheeky, irreverent"The Guardian (UK)
Absolutely hilarious, Toby Stephens shows such a flair for comedy, I was laughing out loud. Sorry that Lucy Punch is not in series two!
Fun series, snappy, witty good acting. Reminiscent of the old 'Moonlighting' series with Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard. When will there be more??
OK, but rather silly, a very americanized ttype sitcom Only fair writting,it's not smart, actors ok. Not happy with this purchase
Cute premise and the actors play well off each other. Lightens up the dark details of the cases.
Only discord is I have to wait for Vesed series 2 to come out. Wanted more of the series.
Interesting. Watched the first of the series. Enjoyed it.
The humor did not make up for poor poor writing of the plots and the less than best acting.
I saw this show in the catalog, and just gave it a try, it's funny and well acted. Looking forward to Series 2.
I enjoy all the English Detectives. They put a twist to the story line with alittle bit of humor.
We liked the series, but not as much as others that we have bought from Acorn. We liked it enough to Series 2, which is on sale.
This short, but sweet comic detective team has more wit, style, and chemistry than Nick and Nora and David and Addie. Can't wait for season II.
We decided to try ??Vexed?g because of the actress Judy Punch. She was sooo funny in the short time she was in ??Doc Martin?g that we wanted to see more. She did not disappoint us. Even though she plays a completely different character, she still has a whimsical way about her. We want more of ??Vexed?g and we will recommend it to all our friends.
GOOD STORIES and I DO LIKE TO LAUGH
Great entertainment, can't wait for Series 2 to become available. This will be a series keeper.
