Led by actress Brenda Blethyn as the unorthodox but brilliant DCI Vera Stanhope, ITV’s crime drama returns for an eighth series.
Based on the best-selling Inspector Stanhope novels by Ann Cleeves, Vera and her team are drawn into four more compelling cases: the body of a police officer discovered in an abattoir incinerator, a mysterious car crash, a suburban back-garden murder and the circumstances that led to the death of a teenage boy.
Set around Newcastle and the stunning Northumberland countryside, VERA features complex and intriguing cases, atmospherically shot landscapes and captivating performances.
