Vera meets Vera
DCI Vera Stanhope (played by actor Brenda Blethyn) met up with her namesake, a Staffordshire bull terrier named Vera. Staffie Vera is owned by Sgt Lee Dunville, a member of 251 Med Sqn, based at Dykeland’s Road Army Reserve Centre. The ARC was used during filming of the latest series of the popular detective drama which is set in the North East. Lee, obviously a massive fan of the crime drama, was delighted the introductions went so well.
