VERA ITV1, 8pm
Sunday 22 January Television
Poor Vera. Not only does she have to contend with Catherine Cawood stealing the limelight on BBC One, but an especially fiendish new case when a well-loved local washes up on the banks of the Tyne without an enemy in the world. Or so it seems, as Brenda Blethyn’s dogged detective uncovers evidence of vendettas, corporate malpractice and long-buried secrets.
