superb drama, 15 January 2008
Author: Tillbradley from United Kingdom

I couldn't wait when they advertised this period drama, but expected the usual costumes, dark and dusty streets and basic poverty. But this story brought to life Georgian England, its not your usual period drama. Set in the late 18th century, City of vice tells the story of London's first police force the Bow street runners lead by John and Henry Fielding. London is a centre for debauchery with pick pockets, thieves, murderers and prostitutes, plus gang warfare all accounting for the need for the police. The brothers use brutal tactics to get their man but are generally concerned for the victims and for the city of London itself. This drama is unlike any other it make you feel you are part of the mystery as it tells stories of these crimes. But also has the makings of other crime dramas such as Cracker and Prime Suspect. I hope they continue this as a series i feel it would do very well. the cast are brilliant and well done channel 4.
