Looks like the producers have no wish to wrap up the project and the viewers are fond of charismatic Vera and Northumberland cozy atmosphere.

Plot & Main Cast
The main character is portrayed by Brenda Blethyn. She acts as Vera Stanhope – a detective from Northumberland & City Police (this organization is fictitious). She’s obsessed with her work considering it to be a true devotion of hers. Her personal demons follow all of her investigations in every new episode released. She’s got a strong mind, able to calculate the most complex of situations and possible ways out of them. She’s deeply concerned about her colleagues and about the consequences of her job. She’s got constant support from two sergeants working with her. They are Joe Ashworth (portrayed by David Leon) and Aiden Healy (portrayed by Kenny Doughty).
- She doesn’t look like a typical detective. Her wax coat and her appearance in general may leave a false impression at first. She’s an affectionate, kind and sensitive woman. However, she’s totally devoted to her investigations willing to get justice for all who deserve it. The character of Vera is often compared to Columbo. Probably it happens because of her soft appearance skillfully combined with her powerful inner world and incredible psychological abilities.
- DS Aiden Healy. He’s a loyal partner of Vera. They don’t often meet in person, but they perfectly match with each other carrying out their personal style of investigation and getting necessary evidence together.
- DC Kenny Lockhart. Old guard of Vera. Desk duties are most important to him, but he’s ready to do whatever possible to achieve the desired result in the investigations.
