Love Vera

By Diane

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Vera, Set 2 DVD:

Being an insomniac, I discovered Vera in the middle of the night on my local PBS station. WOW! Brenda Blethyn has created the most unique, memorable detective character since Colombo. She is abrupt, feisty, frumpy, bossy, compassionate, driven, cranky, caustic, fearless, lonely, dogged, caffeinated, and haunted. Vera stays with you for days afterward.

Smart, different, very human

By deca

Comments about PBS Vera, Set 2 DVD:

Vera is a breath of fresh air much needed in the PBS lineup of "detective shows"- she's smart, tenacious and very good at her job but she's also very human: rude at times, a little crass, doesn't mince words and has an enormous heart, showing compassion towards both coworkers and people she meets daily. Northumberland is the perfect backdrop to this drama- beautiful, rough, windy, isolated. All actors are wonderful, and you get the feeling that this is who they are and where they grew up so it's easy to transport yourself to their "world". Very different from the perfectly polished Foyle, Lewis, Sherlock, etc. Vera is her own boss, which creates interesting subplots with coworkers. I have all available DVDs and haven't tired of watching them yet!

Good mysteries worth watching.

Comments about PBS Vera, Set 2 DVD:

The main detective is more flawed and realistic than in most British series. The plots are very well written, complicated and have endings that are logical. Great acting.

Ill tempered.

By Big Duck Fan.

from Imperial, CA

Comments about PBS Vera, Set 2 DVD:

Don't understand the abusive outbursts of 'Vera'. An ill tempered detective who takes her baggage and issues out on those around her. The virtual opposite of a sleuth.
