The second series of Vexed returns to BBC2 on Wednesday 1 August for a new six-part series with Spooks Miranda Raison joining the cast as a main character. Take a look at the picture gallery for episode 1 below and scroll down to the bottom for a sneaky peek clip.
Detective comedy drama Vexed returns for a brand new series, seeing DI Jack Armstrong (Toby Stephens) paired with a new partner, in the shape of fast-tracked rookie detective Georgina Dixon (Miranda Raison).
DI Armstrong is charming, disorganised and prone to laziness – so it comes as no surprise that sparks fly when he’s partnered with the ambitious and highly efficient newby DI Dixon. Fiercely bright and keen to make her mark, Georgina is exactly what Jack didn’t want for his partner in crime. Jack’s best friend, café-owner and ex-cop Tony (Roger Griffiths) and forensics officer Naz (Ronny Jhutti) provide crime solving support.
In this first episode the duo are thrown together to investigate the death of car salesman Carl Mercer, who is found dead in the boot of one of the showroom’s finest vehicles. The bitter jealousies and rivalry between staff put Carl’s colleagues into the frame, with Georgina becoming increasingly fixated on solving her first murder.
In a case of starkly opposing attitudes, sexual indiscretions and fast cars, it soon becomes clear the mix of Jack’s unconventional approach and Georgina’s attention to detail might make an unexpectedly effective team.
