Fans of Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope books are waiting impatiently for the transmission of Vera, the television series, starring Brenda Blethyn as DI Vera Stanhope. The original plan was for the adaptation of Ann's novel Hidden Depths, to be broadcast in the autumn of 2010, but ITV were so pleased with this pilot episode that they commissioned three additional instalments, even before the first episode was broadcast. Trailers have already been screened, and we should soon have a chance to see four Vera Stanhope mysteries, based on Ann's three existing Vera Stanhope novels plus one entirely new story, all filmed on locations in the north east of England.
