The Vice: Complete Series in February
Network have announced the UK DVD release of The Vice: The Complete Series for 20th February 2006 priced at £49.99. Winner of the 2000 BAFTA award for Best Design and starring BAFTA nominee Scottish actor Ken Stott as D.I Pat Chappel (Rebus, Messiah, Spivs), ITV1’s The Vice the Complete Series will be released in its entirety on DVD for the first time on 20th February 2006 in a ten-disc set.
First broadcast to critical and audience acclaim in 1999, The Vice centres on London’s Metropolitan Police vice squad as the specialist unit investigates the dark, dirty and dangerous world of prostitution, pornography and murder. Starring alongside Stott is a perfect ensemble cast including Caroline Catz (Doc Martin, Murder in Suburbia) as PC Cheryl Hutchins, David Hareweood (The Merchant of Venice, Baby Father) as Sgt Joe Robinson, Marc Warren (Vincent, Hustle) as P.C Dougie Raymond and Gary Cooper (At Home with the Braithwaites) as Supt. Jeff Callard.
Cleverly shot with excellent production values, gripping storylines and solid performances from the talented cast, The Vice is British crime drama at its best. This set contains all twenty-eight episodes from all five series and the programme’s catchy and suitably moody theme tune is Sour Times performed by Bristol collective Portishead.
