In the fourth and final episode of the current series, when fisherman’s body is found tangled up in a North Sea trawler’s net, DCI Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) and her team investigate with the help of the local harbourmaster.
They discover the dead man’s sons pointing the finger at the owner of a fish market, with whom they have a long-running feud.
Vera retraces the dead man’s steps to identify the time he drowned, and tracks down a waitress who may have been one of the last people to see him alive.
However, the case becomes more complicated when a witness runs away and a boat belonging to the dead man’s sister-in-law goes up in flames.
Vera: The Sea Glass is scheduled for broadcast tonight (22 February) at 21.00 on itvCHOICE (DStv channel 123), with repeat showings on Tuesday 23 February at 00.50 and 12.20 and Sunday 28 February at 00.25 and 20.35.
