Vera... give 'em a bob..
Brilliant program but not so brilliant lighting. Give 'em a bob for the meter. Half appeared in silhouette against the sun, and indoors appeared like they'd had a power cut. It spoilt it for me...

The accent!
Love Brenda Blethyn. Not mad on Vera. Even less so on her Geordie accent!

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!

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!

Vera
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.

Vera
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.

Superb acting?
I could not disagree more! More like overacting in Vera's case anyway. "I want him found.....NOW!!!" stating the obvious.

Acting
Superb acting from all. Really enjoyable to watch. Their acting is so good I sometimes forget to follow the story. There are little surprises in the script too that are very realistic. Quality broadcasting!

love the programme, but accent is distracting
The story and filming are fine , but I find myself cringing when 'vera' speaks. Not sure if its the poor accent itself or the screachy whiney tone. Its like nails down a blackboard. Makes a change from american cop shows though.

I really love Brenda Blethyn in Vera. The human yet detached loner is a character I can identify with. It is her acting that I love over and above the storyline.

Brenda Blethyn is a Great Actor, and thought i would be consumed with Vera. But was left rather limp from my viewing experience. Which was most unexpected...

we do not HATE the accent its just not true - the point is if you cannot immitate an accent correctly why bother! Pick someone who can or someone who can genuinly.

surely there must have been some geordie actress for the part or if not why fake it - there really is no need - think Geo Gently filmed in the same place!! if its not right, its so so irritating.

great show
I am a new fan. Just watched all episodes. This show is a breath of fresh air. It is very different from US cop shows no gun play, car chases, or drugs. The police use their brains, for once.

Brilliant
Now now, what's all this. The acting is brilliant, the scenery is brilliant and the storylines are brilliant. Brenda Blethyn is brilliant as the grumpy but brilliant Vera. Okay her accent is a little off but so what. Stephen Tompkinson's Yorkshire accent was dreadful as DCI Banks but I could overlook this. Anyway folks Vera is brilliant!

Pleas can you all remember it's FICTION. Brenda Blethyn is brilliant as Vera. I love the scenery too. Great Sunday night escapism. Yes I too loved Heartbeat and miss it dreadfully but this is great too.

This annoys me, not airing an episode coz of reality. I mean, come on, there's ALWAYS going to be something happening somewhere.... would they not show the news if a newsreader died??!!

Vera S2E3
Many people didn't see Episode 3 which was due to be broadcast on Sunday 13th May - I emailed ITV, and got the following response: "We regret the late change to the schedule and the non-appearance of Sunday’s episode of Vera. The storyline of this episode concerns the death of a soldier in Afghanistan. Following the news of the deaths of two servicemen in Helmand province, it was considered appropriate to delay the broadcast of this particular episode. We have no information at the present time when this episode will be scheduled for broadcast." Hope this helps people - can understand ITV's approach to this.

Where is Vera?
Vera was not shown in the Granada area on Sunday 13th May. We got an old Lewis episode instead. Why?

I enjoy Vera. I'm not familiar with the accent so I;m not distracted by it. I like the fact that she is not such a great person. It makes the show more realistic.
