Martin Edwards has posted today that Ann Cleeves's novel Hidden Depths, featuring Northumberland-based detective Vera Stanhope is to be televised. ITV Studios is producing the two hour drama and production commences in October.
Vera Stanhope will be played by that wonderful actress Brenda Blethyn. You can read more about the book and the TV production here on Ann's site.

And if you want to read it before you see it, you can find a copy of the novel at Waterstone's here.
Many congratulations to Ann!
ITV have brought us some excellent TV crime dramas in recent years, so I am sure they will do Ann's novel justice.
