What happens in Vera series 11?
Episode 1 – Witness
When the body of well-respected local builder, Jim Tullman, is found beaten to death on the steps of the Collingwood Monument, DCI Vera Stanhope questions how such a seemingly beloved and imposing figure could be attacked so viciously.
The mystery deepens when she discovers that Tullman was to testify against Marcus Hynde (Lewis Cope), a promising cadet footballer facing charges of GBH. Are the two crimes connected?
The traumatised victim, Victor (Noah Bailey), and his sister Monica (Amber James) demand their day in court, while Hynde’s delinquent brother Patrick (Conor Lowson) and fiercely protective mother Andrea (Sophie Stanton) insist that Tullman was wrong.
Vera delves deeper into Jim Tullman’s life she discovers unresolved bitterness between his estranged wife Barbara (Lorraine Ashbourne) and doting son John Paul (Micky McGregor).

Episode 2 – Recovery
DCI Vera Stanhope is called to the scene of a murdered support worker, Angela Konan (Karlina Grace-Paseda), found hidden among the bleak woodlands of Northumberland National Park.
Noel Henderson (Cayyvan Coates) and Stanley Booth (Mark Benton), the two park rangers who reported the body appear oddly evasive when questioned if they knew the victim.
Vera soon discovers Angela worked tirelessly for a women’s addiction recovery centre, yet her manager Darlene Houghton (Caroline Lee Johnson), and colleagues had no relationship with her outside the refuge.
Vera and her team must peel back the layers of their introverted victim to uncover her closely guarded secrets and surprising depths.
It appears an increasingly erratic Angela clashed with two clients in the week before she died, rashly evicting Aysiha Nassar (Ayten Manyare), while becoming ever-more personally involved in the life of drug addict Beth Draper (Sian Reese-Williams).
