Vera: Little Lazarus (ITV1 22 May 2011)

Little Lazarus

The first season of Vera comes to a close with the episode Little Lazarus written by Paul Rutman. It’s the first not based on one of Ann Cleves novels but Rutman has already proven to have a good handle on the characters and situations. Here Detective Chief Inspector Stanhope and the trusty Sgt Joe Ashworth investigate the brutal attack on a woman and her son which leaves the woman dead. Vera manages to save the boy from certain death and as she investigates the case she begins to develop a real bond with the boy.

An intriguing final episode, Vera has never really “got” children so it’s a very interesting dynamic at play here in her relationship with the child. As is usually the case with any crime drama worth it’s salt there are hidden secrets and obsessions that Vera needs to get to the heart of to crack the case.
