I’ve just seen a trailer for the new series of Vera on ITV.
It stars Brenda Blethyn as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope of Northumbria & City Police.
I was struck by her costume, which bears an uncanny resemblance of the Fourth Doctor’s wardrobe.
Now, ironically, Tenth Doctor costume designer Louise Page is currently working on series four of Vera, which was commissioned before series three had even been broadcast!
She did not design for series three, and has inherited the established costume. It’s like The Doctor is following her around....
Here, while it remains online, is the full trailer.
