Vera is based on the series of novels written by Ann Cleeves and follows experienced Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) as she tries to crack some of the toughest cases in Northumberland.
Stanhope is obsessive about her work and driven by her own demons. If she’s lonely she doesn’t show it and faces the world with caustic wit, guile and courage. Her trusted and long-suffering colleague is Joe Ashworth (David Leon); he is her right-hand man and surrogate son. Together they approach every new case with unparalleled gusto and professionalism.
