Vexed takes a fresh approach to crime drama. The lead duo, Jack and Kate, aren’t addicted to work or drink and neither of them live just for the job. Both would happily drop a case to go on a date, if they felt like it. They’re not bad detectives they’re just not consumed by work preferring to use social insight, people skills, shortcuts and charm to solve cases rather than great, incident room intellect. Their contrasting personalities, attitudes and approaches make them a powerful team. They too suffer the same real life frustrations, pre-occupations and insecurities as the rest of us.
