The Vice

Finally, ITV show the next (final?) series of The Vice. I knew that it was in the can awaiting a showing, but ITV being ITV, they don’t like to air quality fare such as this. It’s nothing short of spectacular that Carlton made this in the first place.
Ken Stott’s character, Pat Chappel has been through a few scrapes before, but it looked like the end of the line after the last series. Well, now he’s hit the buffers totally – as has his former deputy Cheryl.
This series is outstandingly bleak, it doesn’t dumb down, and very few of the characters are especially likeable.
