Vera is a British crime series written for television and inspired by the novels of the same name by well-known crime writer Ann Cleeves. The series' protagonist is Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope (played by Brenda Blethyn) who works for the Northumberland & City Police, a fictional department. Vera is enormously dedicated to her work and she is excellent at it, but her emotional instability takes its toll, on herself and the people around her. Vera has quickly become a very popular drama series, resulting in broadcasting agreements in more than 20 countries and territories. The beautiful scenery often plays an important role in the show. A majority of the scenes is filmed in the North-East of England, around Newcastle, Teesside and the Northumberland coast, where the so-called “Vera effect” has resulted in an influx of tourists after each season of the show.
