Episode one | Blind Spot by Paul Logue
In series nine of Vera, DCI Vera Stanhope will be confronted with four more tragic and complex murder cases.
DCI Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) is called to the tragic scene of the murder of Joanne Caswell. Joanne’s body is found dumped on a landfill site. Dr. Pathologist Malcolm Donahue (Paul Kaye) concludes that this has compromised any clear forensic links to the circumstances of her death.
Joanne was a trainee forensic psychologist with the promise of a bright future and a sterling reputation. Despite rifts between her parents (Adrian Lukis and Amira Ghazalla), Joanne’s life seems to be perfect and doesn’t indicate any reason why someone might have a motive to kill her.
Eventually Vera alights on the fact that Joanne had been investigating the original crime of a former prisoner. Vera must continue to follow the trail that Joanne had left behind to uncover who might have had a motive to kill her.
