Now pet, not since Columbo has the trench coat been so in vogue, topped with a floppy fishing hat. ‘When I go shopping for Vera’s costume,’ Brenda Blethyn said, ‘if the shop assistant ever says, ‘That looks lovely on you madam’, I think, ‘Right, well, I’ll have to get something else then’.’ The unglamorous, shambolic but effective DCI Vera Stanhope has attracted a legion of fans with the flagship ITV drama starring the very glamorous, stylish and double Oscar-nominated actress. Ann Cleeves – the visionary behind Vera – has sold over 1.5 million books worldwide.
She celebrates the publication of 30 books in 30 years with her latest, Cold Earth, part of her Shetland series – also a major TV series. Ann and Brenda will be joined on stage by Kenny Doughty, who plays Vera’s right-hand man, DS Aiden Healy. Stomping metaphorically across the moor with cast and author, is BBC Breakfast and Watchdog’s Steph McGovern, who’ll dig deep into the heart of the nation’s much-loved Detective Inspector.
