Vexed is a British crime comedy-drama show that premiered on BBC Two in 2010. The show stars Toby Stephens as Detective Inspector Jack Armstrong who works with different partners to solve crimes in London. The show follows the daily police work of Jack and his partner, which includes investigating murders, kidnappings, and robberies. Jack is a smart and determined detective, but he does not take himself too seriously, often cracking jokes and making sarcastic comments. On the other hand, his colleagues are often exasperated by his lack of professionalism and his tendency to bend the rules when it suits him.

The first season of the show focuses on Jack's partnership with Detective Kate Bishop (Lucy Punch), a young and enthusiastic detective who is eager to impress. Kate is often impatient with Jack's lack of discipline, but the two eventually develop a strong bond and become close friends. The second season sees Jack being partnered with a new partner, Detective Inspector Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison).

The show's creativity lies in the comedic writing and excellent performances by the lead actors. Toby Stephens delivers a brilliant performance as Jack, bringing charm, wit, and humor to the role. His character is a delight to watch on screen, and he manages to create a balance between his serious and comedic sides.

Lucy Punch as Kate Bishop is equally brilliant, bringing her unique energy and charisma to the role. Kate is a woman trying to make her mark in a male-dominated profession, and she often finds herself struggling to assert her authority. Her partnership with Jack becomes the centerpiece of the show, and their chemistry is fantastic.

Miranda Raison, as Georgina Dixon, brings a different dynamic to the show. Dixon is sharp and focused, and she doesn't have a lot of patience for Jack's antics. However, she also has a dry sense of humor that manages to make Jack's jokes fall flat on their face.

The show's production values are also top-notch, with well-crafted sets, great cinematography, and solid action sequences. The show also perfectly balances its dark and comedic elements, making for a show that is both entertaining and suspenseful.

Overall, Vexed is a fantastic crime comedy-drama that manages to deliver on all fronts. Its sharp writing, excellent performances, and stellar production values make it a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Vexed is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (9 episodes). The series first aired on August 15, 2010.
