Based on the novels by Ann Cleeves, Vera centres on a nearly retired employee of the fictional Northumberland and City Police, who is obsessive about her work and driven by her own demons. 

Along with her team, she investigates intriguing murders set against the breathtaking Northumberland landscape.

Clever and determined, Vera is an easy character to root for, so much so that you'll find yourself drawn to her eccentricities from the very first episode. If you're a fan of crime dramas, this well-acted British title should definitely be on your radar.
