Hot on the heels of the news that Endeavour has been renewed for a seventh series, we’re hearing that another ITV stalwart has been given an extension.
Following the success of series nine, ITV has confirmed that award-winning actress Brenda Blethyn will return as DCI Vera Stanhope for a 10th series of Vera. Four, feature-length episodes, set against the backdrop of the North East, will begin production in April for transmission in 2020.
Kenny Doughty will return as Detective Sergeant Aiden Healy, who over the years has proved himself to be a strong and reliable partner to DCI Stanhope. Completing Vera’s team is Jon Morrison who plays DC Kenny Lockhart, Riley Jones who plays DC Mark Edwards, Ibinabo Jack who plays DC Jacqueline Williams and Paul Kaye who returns as Pathologist Dr Malcolm Donahue.
The four self-contained crime stories will be inspired by the best-selling novels and characters created by acclaimed crime writer Ann Cleeves, who received the Diamond Dagger Award at the Crime Writer’s Association in 2017 for a lifetime achievement for sustained excellence.
