The cast of ITV’s hit show Vera has been back in the North East filming for the new series.

Huge spotlights and trucks were spotted in Dinnington, Newcastle, on Monday night as filming continues across the region. Temporary traffic lights were installed on the roads as the production team set up base near the Horton Grange Hotel.

A crew member said they were filming for the crime drama’s new series, which will see Brenda Blethyn return as the raincoat-wearing detective DCI Vera Stanhope.

Last month, the production team was busy recording in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea in Northumberland and Peterlee in County Durham. Scenes have already also been shot in Seaton Delaval, Blyth and Seaton Sluice. Filming for the eighth series is expected to last around five months, a ITV1 spokesman said.

Nobody has mentioned the sex trials of the West End and there is much in the papers currently. The Independent has sent a reporter out on the streets to talk to neighbours and that report is here. Julie Bindel comments in the Guardian here. Absent Councillor Forbes twitters about the bravery of the victims in cooperating with the police and court process - I guess you need to be brave to hold councillor surgeries too.

Vera author sets new novel in home town of Whitley Bay

From the News Guardian @ http://www.newsguardian.co.uk/news/v...-bay-1-8697703
Vera author sets new novel in home town of Whitley Bay
James Willoughby 11 August 2017


Author Ann Cleeves. Picture by Micha Theiner

Award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves is about to launch her latest novel, which is partly set in her beloved home town of Whitley Bay. The Seagull is the eighth instalment in the popular DI Vera Stanhope series.

The book focuses on police corruption deep in the heart of a community, and on fragile, and fracturing, family relationships. A cold case takes Vera back in time and very close to home – forcing her to dig deeper into her late father, Hector’s, murky reputation. Vera must confront her prejudices and unwanted memories to dig out the truth, as the past begins to collide dangerously with the present. A visit to her local prison brings DI Stanhope face-to-face with an old enemy; former detective superintendent, and now inmate, John Brace. Brace was convicted of corruption and involvement in the death of a gamekeeper – and Vera played a part in his downfall.

Brace promises Vera information about the disappearance of Robbie Marshall, a notorious wheeler-dealer, if she will look out for his daughter and grandchildren. He tells her that Marshall is dead, his body buried close to St Mary’s Island. However, when a search team investigates, officers find not one skeleton, but two.

Reflecting on the book, Ann said: “I love the fact that this book is set in Whitley Bay. It was such fun to write. The book is dedicated to the regulars in my local pub, The Rockcliffe Arms. I was sitting there listening to their stories and some of them triggered some the plot lines in the book.”

The Seagull is being published by Macmillan on Thursday, September 7, in hardback, priced £16.99.

It's almost too grim to comment. Probably an obvious point but if we cover this can we be 'sensitive'.

The Benton Farm Branch of the "Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter" to star on Channel 4.



The Channel 4 programme 'Clear the Shelter' hosts a unique five-day live event across the week from Monday to Friday, at a branch of the Newcastle Dog and Cat shelter

We all love animals – don’t we? Britain is home to more than 16 million pet dogs and cats*. But every year, some 250,000 domestic animals* find themselves abandoned to the care of rescue centres. In 2016, animal charities reported sharp increases in cases of stray and unwanted pets coming through their doors, some dealing with record intakes. Now, more than ever, this displaced pet population needs help.

To highlight this plight, Channel 4 has commissioned 'Clear the Shelter', a unique five-day live event stripped across the week from Monday to Friday. Its aims: a call to action for the nation to provide forever homes for these displaced, deserving dogs and cats, rabbits and birds – and the chance of a happy ending for each and every one, and to dismantle the stigma associated with rescue animals and encourage would-be owners to consider them first over buying a young pet.

Based in the Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter branch at Benton Farm, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and Steve Jones hope to Clear the Shelter by helping to rehome all of the centre’s animals by the end of the week.

Across the country, many more rescue centres will also be taking part, and viewers looking to buy an animal will be encouraged to go to their local centre instead. Kate Quilton will be the show’s resident reporter, taking us to the front line of the rehoming process and following adoptions as they happen in real time. Throughout the series, viewers will be directed to a special website and dedicated network of experts ready to advise and help them begin the process of adopting an animal. As the process of adoption commences applicants will be subject to strict protocols (precisely in line with the featured shelters) to ensure the safety of animal adoptees.

Steve Jones, co-presenter of the programme, said: "This is going to be a great show with a great purpose. Can’t wait.” Tim Hancock, Commissioning Editor at C4 said: “We’re so glad to be working with Blast on this audacious and vital project. As an event, it has the potential to shift Britain’s attitudes towards adopting rescue animals, and as a series, it will make for unmissable TV as the country comes together to clear the shelters.”

Broadcast date in August 2017, To Be Confirmed.
