So pleased to have just binge-watched the entire season on my tablet with Hoopla (10 free movies or TV episodes per month with my library card!) when Netflix doesn't have any Vera and Amazon Prime's free offerings don't include it either (right now). I was skeptical about the new DI, Aiden Healy - I was attached to Joe...but he's grown on me - Brenda Blethyn is able to inhabit the character so completely and consistently that it seems effortless. Still glad to have Vera's verbal punching-bag, Kenny, and other characters to round out the team. On to Season 6!

Vera is an engaging character. The series is adequately written but not greatly written.

Vera is a great series. The stories are well written and the characters are well done.

Agree with another commentor, Brenda calling everyone "love" is annoying and feels inappropriate. But otherwise truly enjoy her character. Miss the previous "Joe". Great series!! Will watch again down-the-road.

I love Vera. My husband and I both watch these. Great acting, great scenery. Brits know how to create a good mystery with subtly. It's not too dark or gratuitous. Vera is a curmudgeon with some gravitas. Very enjoyable entertainment.

The cast change did not do this series any favors. The new partner is flat and boring, and he is annoying. Adding a differently-abled person was nice, but they make sure you NOTICE that she is different. The stories are still very good, and Vera's backstory is no long intruding on her work. Vera is still the best British crime solver since Miss Marple.

Vera is the girl equivalent of disheveled old TV dectective Frost, but the show is better quality. If you liked Broadchurch, Frost, Foyle, or any of those British crime shows, you will like this show. It's more realistic (less of a sitcom, less gently-making-fun-of-itself) than Midsomer Murders, Campion, Miss Fisher, the one with the garden ladies, or the Agatha Christie stuff. I have started at set#5, but I will go get the other seasons now.
