Trivia

In Series 2 Episode 2, DI Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens) states the assumption that DI Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison) was "watching endless episodes of 'Poirot'". Both actors played characters on Poirot; Toby Stephens as Philip Blake in "Five Little Pigs" (S9;E1) and Miranda Raison as Mademoiselle Blanche in "Cat Among the Pigeons" (S11;E2). DI Kate Bishop (Lucy Punch) did as well as Susannah Henderson in "After the Funeral" (S10;E3). See more »

Testy cops
12 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Vexed wants to be the USA version of Moonlighting. The first series was a three parter from Howard Overman, with Jack played by Toby Stephens, an arrogant, uncaring and misogynistic cop and his new partner played by Lucy Punch, exasperated with his methods and attitude who also had a madcap relationship with her fiancé played by Rory Kinnear.

The first series was not a great critical or viewing success. A re- tooled second series appeared two years later, Punch was replaced by Miranda Raison and Jack was toned down, made a little bit more sensitive and a better detective. Stephens tried his best to be a charismatic series lead.

Like Moonlighting it is off beat enough with a hint of 'will they or won't there' and crime solving thrown in.

Unfortunately the second series was not a hit with the audience neither. I doubt the series will return which will leave the creator slightly vexed.
