Was hoping it might have got more interesting. Vera seems to have lost her accent somewhat which is really the only improvement.

Brilliant - love it
I love Vera. Very subtle drama, much less obvious than most TV detectives. Beautiful but unusual locations. Brenda Blethyn and the cast are brilliant. Can't wait for the next series!

Nothing new
Switched over. Not interesting enough to keep watching. BBC thriller much more promising.

Gripping drama.
I love Vera. This programme is so exciting and the main character is unconventional and damaged which I also love. A must watch!

Seems to have some sort of neurological disease as she has a shaky voice and wobbles a bit.

Hammy, wooden, awful. Change channel.
A 2 hour program filled with long silences, dialog limited to no more than 8 word one liners, and an Irish, Scottish, Geordie, Southern accent that Vera could not sustain from one sentence to the next. This was a 2 hour journey into tedium lacking in content and performance. Change the channel or go out for a walk and spare yourself any more of this lack lustre series.

Nothing special
Found it all rather boring much to my expectation.

What a pity. If there was a natural Geordie playing the part of Vera it would be so much better. Nothing against Brenda. The speech should be speeded up too many silences. All too slow.

Young Gods The detective delves into the past of extreme sports enthusiast Gideon Frane after he plunges from a cliff in a ball of flames. A scan of the files reveals a long list of stalking complaints against an ex, and an anonymous letter to the victim spelling out Burn in Hell is linked to one of her friends. Aided by DC Shepherd and the newly appointed DC Edwards, the team tries to track down Gideon's old gang to uncover a lifetime of bullying and an unexpected story of rough justice
