Vexed follows D.I. Jack Armstrong and his partners - Kate Bishop and later, Georgina Dixon - police detective duos with real chemistry. Bright, sexy and funny, their personal lives are as complicated as the crimes they investigate.

They may be cops but Jack and his colleagues suffer the same frustrations, preoccupations and insecurities as the rest of us. Always on the move or in their unofficial office, the local cafe opposite the police station where the coffee and gossip are better, their cases say something about modern life in an entertaining way.

Armstrong is charming, disorganised and prone to laziness so sparks fly when he begins working with the ambitious and highly efficient Dixon. Jack's best friend, café-owner and ex-cop Tony and colleague Naz complete the crime solving team.
