About TV show Vera season 9
At the heart of the new series of novels based on the novels of British author Ann Cleeves is the investigator DCI Vera Stanhope. Obsessed with her work, she resolves crimes with sarcastic wit, courage and cunning. Vera is her confidante and longtime colleague DS Joe Ashworth, played by David Leon, as her right hand to the side. She trusts Joe blindly, and he supports her with her unconventional investigation methods. Together, they solve difficult cases with great enthusiasm and unprecedented professionalism in four compelling thrillers.
Vera, who is very much into her cases, grew up with her father, who had little time for her. So she had to prove herself early on and developed her own sense of justice. Vera's team includes Julie Armstrong, Richard Short, and pathologist Billy Catwright, as well as DC Holly Lawson, the youngest in the team. Holly is often mistreated by Vera. But Vera just wants Holly to work harder because she sees her as having a real talent.
Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) is a Morder investigator in northern England with a strong taste for alcohol.
