The indomitable DCI Vera Stanhope, assisted by her trusted colleague, DS Joe Ashworth, steps up for another series of challenging cases. She investigates the mysterious death of a pensioner on a busy commuter train (On Harbour Street), unearths a thirty year mystery after a brutal murder on the sands of a seaside resort (Protected), unpicks the tragic last months of a failed novelist gunned down on a remote Northumberland moor (The Deer Hunters), and delves into the tangled life of a businessman found floating in the water under the Gateshead Millennium Bridge (Death of a Family Man).
Inspired by the novels written by renowned crime writer Ann Cleeves, and filmed against a backdrop of outstanding Northumberland landscapes and atmospheric production, each enthralling story is enhanced by the captivating performance of Brenda Blethyn as this shambolic yet brilliant detective.

The stories in this series have been captivating, interesting and diverse and the locations they use are stunning, which add to the mood and feel of the show, although there are lighter moments (my favourite being when Vera calls DC Edwards, DC Cleverdick!! Brenda at her BEST!!).
VERA has continued to impress all it's fans over the course of the first 4 series and I'm thrilled to hear (from Brenda herself via twitter) that filming for series 5 begins early next month (although we will have to wait until 2015 to see it!!)
I hope DCI Stanhope and DS Ashworth continue to solve murders for many more years to come!!
Brenda Blethyn plays Vera, and she is absolutely brilliant. She has the ability to transform herself into Vera, her actions, her speech and her essence demand respect. In this series we are privy to more information about Vera's childhood, as she relays bits and pieces to her DS Joe Ashworth, played by David Leon. Joe, has a young family and a beautiful wife who wants the best. This causes discomfort and dissension in the family, and this is prominent in several of the episodes.
Series 4 as usual provides the best in acting, writing and directing. The episodes are all new and reality driven. We can see this happening in any neighborhood. These episodes take place in Northumberland, the moors, the desolate places and the nicer neighborhoods. Vera has a cast of characters who are all put in their place, she wants them to work harder, do more, bring in the clues and help solve the crimes. In series 4, a new young pathologist arrives, and he brings some needed romance and mystery. I found this series 4 to be one of the best of the 4 series. I have read that a series 5 has been ordered, David Leon will not reprise his role, so, a new DS will be introduced. Looking forward.
