Trivia:
In the beginning of episode one of season three a young brunette drew a smiley face on steamed glass. After she is shown dead the smiley face is shown again with an angular drip running through some of it. It, suspiciously, resembles the smiley button with a blood streak from "The Watchman".See more »

Love Vera, 20 February 2014
Author: dewaltcr-929-824955 from United States

Love this series...only downside is they make me feel cold! :-) The weather where it's filmed is terrible! So different from Southern California where I live. It's really great to see a smart mature woman as the lead. At least she's not a 20 year old blonde bimbo! Too many series in the US are full of the tall skinny blondes...boring! This is true of many of the British series that make it over to the United States. They are full of characters who look like REAL people and not Hollywood starlets or runway models. You see the same in "Scott and Bailey", another British TV series I really love. I wish we'd see more of British dramas and comedies. I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting the quality of programs the Brits put on. Keep up the great work.
