Vera Poster Child explained: Ann Cleeves’ iconic detective faces one of her most emotionally intense cases yet in the ITV drama

Vera Poster Child is an early episode you might have forgotten, and it sees DCI Vera Stanhope tackle a case that echoes her personal life.

The latest season of Vera delivered plenty of emotional twists and turns, not least the return of DI Joe Ashworth after we saw Kenny Doughty leave Vera as DS Aiden Healy in the festive special. Now our Sunday nights are once again sadly Vera-less, though there’s light at the end of the investigative tunnel as it’s already been revealed there’ll be more episodes to make up another series of Vera.
