Vera: Set 6
Award-winning actress Brenda Blethyn (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) delivers a "powerhouse performance" (Mail on Sunday, UK) as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope in this fan-favorite mystery series inspired by the novels of Ann Cleeves. Amidst the sweeping landscapes of rural Northumberland, Vera and her assistant, Detective Sergeant Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty, Stella, Black Work), confront brutal crimes that challenge even Vera's genius for solving cases. This season Vera and Aiden investigate the deaths of a woman found on the moors, a young man who worked at a traveling fairground, a fisherman pulled from the sea, and a mysterious double murder. Despite the rough edges to her personality and her unconventional methods, Vera has proved to be "nothing less than a TV institution" (Mail on Sunday, UK).
