Cracking start to Series 9.
13 January 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

It's so hard to believe that Vera is now in its ninth series, time flies. If I'm honest I wasn't overly impressed with Series 8, I thought some of the writing had let it down, fortunately with Blind Spot, the show was definitely back on track. The change in personnel gave it a nice fresh feel, bring in Paul Kaye as the new mortician was a terrific move, an awesome actor, he and Blethyn shared some excellent scenes.

The mystery was excellent, very engaging, cleverly crafted, it really did feel like a whodunit. Some fine performances too, Adrian Lukis and Peter Davison in particular were excellent, appearing together again since Too good to be true, another ITV drama from a few years ago. You really were kept guessing until the very end.

Blethyn and Doughty were terrific once again, hoping the remainder of the series will be of this quality.

9/10, an excellent start.
