Vera star Brenda Blethyn returns to ITV on Sunday with a brand new series of the fan favourite detective drama. The drama kicks off with an episode titled Witness which sees Vera and DS Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty) investigate the murder of a well-respected local builder. However, in a recnet interview the actress issued her co-star with a warning.

Vera began: “The opening of our first episode includes a lovely view of the Holy Island causeway. 

“I love it when they are able to include that as part of the story. 

“We also have a very impressive location – the Collingwood Monument at Tynemouth.

“A body is found on the steps of the memorial. A builder who appears to be an upstanding member of the community and who was due to be giving evidence in a trial that very morning.

“We also see him earlier on board the Shields Ferry. Sadly, Vera doesn’t get to go on the ferry but I have been on it myself as a passenger.”

Opening up on her co-star, she continued: “Vera also notices that Aiden, played by Kenny Doughty, has been a ‘bit off’ recently and wonders what’s going on with him. 

“She soon discovers what it’s all about and tells him to sort it out. Kenny is terrific. 

“He really should have his own show. He’s the most wonderful mimic.”

“If you shut your eyes when he’s impersonating someone his voice is pitch-perfect. A very funny fella,” she added.

“He can probably imitate me too but it would be at his peril! We have such a laugh.”

The ITV actress praised the guest cast featuring in the upcoming series. 

“The guest cast includes the wonderful Lorraine Ashbourne, who plays the victim’s estranged wife Barbara,” she said.

“Almost everyone could be a suspect. There are also some great new actors in the first two films.

“There is one young actress called Ayten Manyera who came into the second episode as a replacement at the very last minute.

“Ayten was terrific. Made me laugh. We have some wonderfully talented new young actors.”

ITV fans are thrilled for the drama’s return as one tweeted: “Eeeek so excited I love me some #vera.”
