What the press said:
"No Lucy Punch in the second series of this comedy detective drama. Instead, we have Miranda Spooks Raison's ambitious Georgina Dixon alongside Toby Stephens as laid-back DI Jack Armstrong. She ruffles his feathers as she tries to beat him solving their first case together. More sparks to come, we think."
"Without using lazy televisual clichés, the Vexed chemistry is more familiar here; as opposed to eccentric (though wonderfully so in the first series), we're presented with a Moonlighting-esque battle of equals."
"The leads, Toby Stephens and newcomer to the show Miranda Raison, have breezy chemistry - more important here than convoluted plotting."
