Additional Information

He's lazy, disorganized, charming, and more interested in having a good time than solving crimes. She's dedicated, efficient, determined to succeed at her new job, and worried that her marriage might be falling apart. Thrown together as partners on the London police force, the two mismatched detectives solve crimes with more luck than skill, bickering and bantering along the way.

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.
Disc 1
Episode 1
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.

Episode 2
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.

Episode 3
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.

Absolutely hilarious, Toby Stephens shows such a flair for comedy, I was laughing out loud. Sorry that Lucy Punch is not in series two!

Moonlighting anyone?
By Shopper on 1/23/2013

Fun series, snappy, witty good acting. Reminiscent of the old 'Moonlighting' series with Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard. When will there be more??

Not Vexed
By Shopper from CA on 5/22/2013

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.

Vexed 1
By I from KS on 1/20/2014

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.

Vexed, Series 1
By BJSW from TX on 2/12/2014

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.

Waiting for Season 2!
By lulu from MI on 1/6/2013

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 wanted to see more.
By Bill from CA on 8/20/2012

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.
