Vera Complete collection series 1 to 9 - Import From The Netherlands with English soundtrack.

Academy Award-Nominee and BAFTA Award-Winning Actress Brenda Blethyn OBE star in Vera, a murder-mystery drama based on the novels by Award-Winning crime writer Ann Cleeves.

Brenda Blethyn plays the title role of DCI Vera Stanhope, a sharp but shambolic detective driven by her own personal demons. With her caustic wit and singular charm, Vera and her trusted team face a series of captivating murder mysteries set against the breathtaking Northumberland landscape.

Few would suggest that television is crying out for a new detective to solve the crimes of Britain, and thus the original announcement of Vera hardly set tongues wagging. But this is a show that has a special weapon in its midst, namely Brenda Blethyn.

Blethyn is a terrific actress, and here, in the title role, she gets to play an obsessive murder detective. Vera is based on the novels of Ann Cleeves, and in truth, the stories themselves are hardly radical additions to the genre. But they are intriguing ones, and the cases in this maiden series are significantly lifted by Blethyn's investment in the title character.

Vera, inevitably, doesn't have a life very easy. And working in tandem with Sergeant Joe Ashworth, she battles not only the crime in front of her but the challenges in her own life.

Boasting good quality production values, a strong cast, and cases that hold the attention, Vera is a fine piece of television drama. But the main reason to watch it? That'd be its exceptional leading lady. Just watching Blethyn take on such a meaty role is worth the time and financial investment in itself.
