Vexed with Vexed?

I watched the first episode of the Beeb's new comedy detective drama "Vexed" last night... not sure if I'll bother with the second episode or not, it seems to have potential but tries too hard to weird and funny, not achieving either to the degree it wants to.

Starring Toby Stephens and Lucy Punch as mismatched detectives Jack and Kate, episode one does have some funny moments but relies far too much on mindless cruelty or sheer stupidity. Could get better... not a patch on the prematurely discontinued Life or sadly short-lived Sherlock though.
