Vera has been away from our screens since January last year but series 11 is about to start. The ITV drama will be back on Sunday, August 29, with actress Brenda Blethyn reprising her iconic role of DCI Vera Stanhope. Here’s everything you need to know about the rest of the cast.

Who is in the cast of Vera season 11?

DS Aiden Healy – Kenny Doughty

Actor Kenny Doughty will be coming back once again as Vera’s right-hand man DS Aiden Healy.

Aiden has been working alongside Vera sine 2015 and has grown very protective of his eccentric boss.

Actor Doughty has been in various popular series over the years, including Snowpiercer, Love, Lies and Records, Stella and Goldplated.

Soap fans will recognise Doughty for having a minor recurring role as Jack Harman, a builder that Michelle O’Connor (Kym Marsh) had a brief fling with. 

DC Jacqueline ‘Jac’ Williams – Ibinabo Jack

Jac is the more straight-talking detective of the group and greatly admires Vera’s determination to get to the truth.

Jac is portrayed by actress Ibinabo Jack in the ITV drama and has done so since 2018.

Prior to Vera, actress Jack was known for her soap work, featuring in both Hollyoaks and Doctors.

Some of her other projects have been Big Fat Like, Two For Joy and Warren.

DC Kenny Lockhart – Jon Morrison

Kenny has been working on the force for a long time and so has plenty of experience working on murder investigations.

Vera relies on him a lot because she knows he is trustworthy and honest.

Jon Morrison is a Scottish actor who has been on the small screen since the early 1970s with The Bill, Taggart and Bergerac.

Servants, Dream Team, Psychos, Monarch of the Glen and Serious and Organised are also featured on his IMDB page.

Dr Malcolm Donahue – Paul Kye

Vera and Dr Malcolm Donahue, the pathologist of the group, haven’t always had the best relationship.

They worked together a few years back and Vera found that he can be quite rude at times.

He is portrayed by actor and comedian Paul Kye who is known for his take on interviewer Dennis Pennis on The Sunday Show and Mike Strutter on MTV’s Strutter.

Kye even got a role in HBO’s Game of Thrones as Thoros of Myr.

DC Mark Edwards – Riley Jones

Mark Edwards is one of the youngest members on Vera’s team but has brought a lot to the table with his energy and skills of analysis.

Actor Riley Jones has only a handful of credits to his name so far, including Wolfblood and EastEnders.

Vera season 11 will premiere on Sunday, August 29, at 8pm on ITV.
