City of Vice

City of Vice is a gripping new drama series about the vice-ridden world of Georgian London, a historical drama series entirely informed by primary source material. Set in the mid-Eighteenth century, in fashionable Covent Garden – the center of London’s Vice Trade- City of Vice features Henry and his blind brother John Fielding, magistrates of Westminster and the men who created the modern police force. Played by Ian McDiarmid and Iain Glenn, Henry and John are London’s first ‘cops’ –investigating the lives and crimes of prostitutes, pimps, gamblers and villains (all of them historically researched real people) in a world where the rules of policing have not yet been invented. John Fielding had to make-up the ‘procedure’ as he went. Before Fielding there was no thought-out strategy to the taking of witness statements and there was certainly no organized system of informants. As City of Vice reveals, Fielding was the architect of modern day policing.
