Vexed : Series 1 (2010)
Saturday 18th August 2012
Series One of BBC Two's darkly comic detective series Vexed, starring Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher) and Toby Stephens (Die Another Day, Jane Eyre), is released on DVD by Acorn Media on 20th August 2012. Together they play Jack and Kate, a police duo with real chemistry.
Written and created by Howard Overman (Misfits) and directed by the award-winning Matt Lipsy (Psychoville, Little Britain), Vexed takes a fresh approach to crime drama. Jack (Toby Stephens) is lazy, inefficient and disorganised, but carries it off with great charm. Police work isn't a vocation, it's a job. If he could think of something else to do, he might do it. Then again, he might not.
Kate (Lucy Punch) has transferred to the city to gain a promotion and to escape the feeling that she's stuck in a rut. She's determined to prove that she can do anything that Jack can and better.

Starring Lucy Punch and Toby Stephens
