City of Vice tells the true story of novelist Henry Fielding and his brother John, the magistrates of the London borough of Westminster as they fight to form the first police force, which would become the famous Bow Street Runners.

Henry and John Fielding begin the season by investigating many of the crimes that occur in Westminster as part of their jobs as magistrates. Realizing that they cannot investigate every crime they assemble a team of investigators. City of Vice investigates a number of social factors affecting the people of Georgian England that are still relevant today, including the problems of the private lives of the Bow Street Runners on their professional positions.
