Brenda Blethyn (pic­tured) re­turns as tough mid­dleaged de­tec­tive Vera Stan­hope in the third se­ries of this mys­tery crime se­ries set in the moody english coun­try­side. Although the episodes are no longer based on the best­selling and dense nov­els by Ann Cleeves, we still have a long run­time to con­tend with tonight’s “Poster Child” clocks in at a whop­ping 90 min­utes, mak­ing it akin to movie view­ing, so buckle in. Af­ter a re­spected sur­geon, who was about to re­tire, is shot dead and his teenage daugh­ters kid­napped from the fam­ily home, Stan­hope and her team are on the case. With one of the girls need­ing her in­sulin shots to sur­vive, time is more than ever of the essence.
