So glad she's back.
12 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

It's hard to believe that this is Vera's Tenth anniversary, she hasn't changed much at all, and neither has the quality of the show.

After ten years it is still excellent, Series Ten opens up with Blood will tell, an exciting, engaging, cohesive murder mystery, which is easy to follow, at no stage did I lose the plot or find it difficult to stay with.

Some impressive production values, that garage fire looked pretty impressive, no dodgy sets used here.

I was kept guessing until the very end, not a twist I was expecting.

Blethyn continues to impress, she was terrific. I enjoyed her last scene in particular. If this is the standard for the series, we're in for a treat.

I loved it. 9/10
