“Cheeky, irreverent” —The Guardian (UK)

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 about her marriage. 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) and Lucy Punch (Doc Martin) star in a fresh approach to the cop show that’s “more comedy than drama . . . [and] lots of fun”—Times (UK). 3 episodes, 3 hrs, 1 DVD, SDH. Mature audiences.

Called to investigate the murder of a school headmaster who’s been stabbed through the neck with a knitting needle, Jack is most worried about dealing with kids.

I thought it would be similar to australian Mr.& Mrs. mysteries. It was NOT. Pointless, juvenile, unappealing junk.

Overall good fun! wasn't sure about the new lady inspector but she pulled it off with ease. Great show that beats out American shows of this type hands down. Seems real life not made up fake crap.

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.

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.
