Unlike any other television detective, Ken Stotts brilliant portrażal of dedicated, caring Metro copper Pat Chappel really gets to you in an sort of uncanny way. Simply a must have if you are a fan of this genre! The Vice has all the elements of a great crime story. One can only hope for the release of the rest of this magnificent series on DVD. I know I do!

Ken Stott is a truly wonderful and talented actor. No matter what role he plays he simply performs it as the great professional he is. This is a very engrossing and well scripted series

4.0 out of 5 stars Seller feedback 13 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film was well done. Not 100% my cup of tea - a bit too much flawed-character-in-a-policeman for my taste - the story and the locations would have managed well without this - although, I am sure, many would like the 'acting'.

The seller was very helpful, professional and quick in responding to a small problem with the DVD itself. Everything was sorted out very satisfactorily. It is good to know that good service is not a thing of the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great British crime series 5 Feb 2007
By Margaux Paschke - Published on
Ken Stott (award winning actor) plays the head of Vice with David Harewood and Caroline Catz as his regular team members. Marc Warren plays the new guy (might recognize from the "The Hustle" series). This great ensemble cast along with gripping storylines make for riveting viewing. This is the complete first series which comprises of three episodes with each having a Part I and Part II.

Episode 1: Daughters - Inspector Chappel (Ken Stott) becomes personally involved while investigating a turf war between two pimps.

Episode 2: Sons - Officer Cheryl Hutchins (Caroline Catz) gets more then she can handle while working undercover to bust a shady nightclub that dabbles in S&M films.

Episode 3: Dabbling - Vice and Drug Squad work together to crack an escort agency that fronts for a huge drug and prostitution ring. One of the Vice Squad members crosses the line at work.

Each episode is a gem and I cannot wait to get the second installment of The Vice. I highly recommend this series.
