Acclaimed drama Vera is a UK exclusive and unavailable outside the UK to the legions of fans of this hit show. Read on to discover Liberty Shield’s reliable solution to this problem.
Brenda Blethyn returns to ITV in January as the unorthodox but brilliantly perceptive DCI Vera Stanhope, investigating more chilling crimes in four feature-length films produced by Silverprint Pictures, part of ITV Studios.
Actor Kenny Doughty also returns to his role as Vera’s logical right hand man, Detective Sergeant Aiden Healy, who has worked hard to earn her respect and prove his worth on the team. The series has once again been inspired by the best selling novels and characters created by acclaimed crime writer Ann Cleeves, who recently received the Diamond Dagger Award at the Crime Writer’s Association for a lifetime achievement of sustained excellence.
Filmed on location in the North East, 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. Completing Vera’s team is Jon Morrison as DC Kenny Lockhart, Riley Jones as DC Mark Edwards and Kingsley Ben-Adir who plays Pathologist Marcus Summer.
Other actors appearing across the four films include; Carolyn Pickles, Elizabeth Rider, Ben Batt, Lucy Russell, Ian Burfield, Philip McGinley, Vincent Regan, Ben Crompton, Ian Puleston-Davies, Angela Lonsdale, Rita Tushingham and Steve Evets. Series eight is produced by Letitia Knight and directed by Paul Gay, David Leon, Chris Baugh and Lee Haven-Jones.
Phil Hunter returns as Executive Producer for his second series. In the UK Vera performs consistently for ITV. The first episode of series seven consolidated to 8.2m viewers. This was the first time the drama had ever attracted over 8 million viewers in its seven-year history.
