Summary of Season 9 (2019) - 2 discs
As disheveled and indomitable as ever, DCI Vera Stanhope leads her tightly knit team of Northumberland police through four more daunting cases. No one seems to know anything about the police officer whose body turns up in a slaughterhouse incinerator, the woman killed in a car crash meant to look like an accident, the suburban neighbor found dead in her back garden, and the teenager whose body floats to the surface of a reservoir. How will Vera break the silence to find their killers?
Summary of Season 10 (2020) - 2 discs
The indomitable Vera and her trusted team unravel more complex cases, exploring stories of corporate corruption, organized crime and deeply buried personal guilt. An entrepreneur's murder delivers no shortage of suspects, and the discovery of a teenager's body floating near a salmon farm reveals a tangled web of deceit between two families. The murder of a cleaner whose death occurred several hours after the killer blow landed sends Vera on an intriguing trail, and it soon becomes clear that not all is as it seems when a wealthy betting shop tycoon is killed during a home invasion.
