A Must See
"Vera names the day
ITV have at last revealed when we can see the eagerly awaited television detective drama series based on Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope books. Episode 1 - Hidden Depths - will be screened on the evening of Sunday May 1st, on ITV1 from 8.00 to 10.00 pm.
After two young people are killed in the same way - placed in water and surrounded by flowers - DCI Vera Stanhope knows that she must catch the murderer before they strike again. Aided by her team, especially her trusted right-hand man Sgt Joe Ashworth, she unpicks the complex and dysfunctional relationships amongst a group of bird-watching friends. As the friends' loyalty turns to betrayal, Vera finds that a small act of teenage blackmail and an illicit affair may have driven someone to kill. With Brenda Blethyn, David Leon, Wunmi Mosaku, Paul Ritter, and Juliet Aubrey.
