What a great series! This is my second time watching it.
Excellent series, thoroughly enjoyed. Looking forward to seeing more.
Brenda Blethyn plays the lead role as Vera, DCI Vera Stanhope, Northumberland and City Police. Newbies will wonder how she ever manages to solve a case: she seems so bumbling and sometimes confused. But underneath it all she has a well-honed mined that puts her well up to the solving of the cases that come across her desk.
Well written, based on the characters originally created by Anne Cleeves (who's novels are definitely also worth your time), this series is ever so much more engaging than some of the shoot-em-ups produced on this side of the Atlantic. Hooked! And definitely deserving all the stars.
Usually enjoy Brenda Blethyn enormously, but I find it hard to believe her in this role.
Lovable, wonderful Vera with Joe. Watch the series.
This is the best British detective since Sherlock Holmes! Brilliantly written, wonderfully acted, superbly directed.
This set includes these titles: Ghost Position, Silent Voices, Sandancers, A Certain Samaritan. Knowledge TV is showing this set in January 2016. Very enjoyable series with likable detective characters. Characters are based on Ann Cleeve's work, but the plots are written by others. Doesn't matter - stories are still good.
Get season 4 (2014)
original plots, good characters, interesting actors-guest and regular.
