Ann Cleeves is a busy woman at the moment. Or at least her characters are. We’ve got Jimmy Perez ploughing his windswept furrow in Shetland over on BBC1 at the moment, and now we’ve received news from ITV that her other fabulous, adapted creation, Vera, is also on her way back in a few weeks’ time. Hold onto your hats!
