It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

Some good crime-on-TV news

AC 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.

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.

    Great news (but I think I knew this already – am I supernatural?!). I read The Crow Trap on my recent holiday and enjoyed it very much – do you know where Hidden Depths comes in the Vera series? I must try to remember to watch or record this.
