In tonight’s investigation, DCI Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) is called into action following the discovery of a young man’s body in an area notorious for illicit teenage gatherings.
The corpse is found wrapped in plastic sheeting and having received a blow to the head.
Vera follows the trail to a funfair where the victim used to work and a church where he sought refuge, having recently been made homeless.
Delving into his family history, the detective attempts to discover why he was on the streets when his parents lived nearby, while forensic evidence implicates the son of the vicar, who has a criminal past.
Vera: Tuesday’s Child is scheduled for broadcast tonight (8 February) at 21.00 on itvCHOICE (DStv channel 123), with repeat showings on Tuesday 9 February at 00.50 and 12.20 as well as Sunday 14 February at 00.25 and 2035.
