Brenda Blethyn, who plays Vera Stanhope , a no nonsense DCI with a heart of gold is superb in this role. The series is set in Northumberland and brings fantastic cinematography and a realistic ( though sometimes generalised ) portrayal of the life and people in the North of England. I'd recommend watching this on a lazy Sunday when you have nothing better to do.

British crime, I really like it. DCI Stanhope is a great character and I miss DS Ashworth now that he's no longer there. I loed the realtionship between those two.

A gritty british modern day murder mystery. Bloody brilliant, I love it! The characters, landscape, and story lines make this show. Each time you see an episode it feels like a solid movie you might just watch again. Stop reading and go get addicted.

It's okay. Not great.

I've noticed over the years the mail problem with shows that makes them just average. Gonna try to describe it.

It's the way they change scenes. It really bugged in Vera in the 1st show I just watched. All of a sudden and for no apparent reason actors are placed in a different scene. The change of scene makes no sense. It isn't explained why they are now where they are speaking their lines, and the change doesn't seem to further the plot. It isn't all the scene changes. Some of them do make sense. And this little problem makes a show average or less when it could be a great show. Is it the writing or directing or production company? Probably a little bit of each.
