Vera fans seriously distracted by nod to Brenda Blethyn's 'real family' in series 11 finale | The Sun

VERA fans were all left saying the same thing as they spotted a member of Brenda Blethyn's 'family' during the latest episode.

The popular North East based ITV drama finished its eleventh series last night but not without one last treat to its loyal viewers.

In the episode, DCI Stanhope was back solving a brand new case alongside her right hand man Aiden Healy, played by Kenny Doughty.

But it was a scene when Vera was in her office chatting to Mark Edwards (Riley Jones) that left fans distracted online.

In the scene, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the photo of a dog on Mark's desk was actually that of Brenda's real-life dog, Jack.

Riley shared a post to Twitter to get fans talking about who they thought was behind the murder but was instead greeted to a whole host of replies about the adorable pooch.

She said: "You couldn’t get anything done if Jack was actually on set — he’d keep hanging on the back of my leg!"

She went on: “My dog Jack can’t be with me in the North East for all of that time.

"He’s all right after I’ve been away for a little while.

"But if I happen to manage to come home for a few days in between filming Vera episodes, he goes mad and then my husband has a merry time of it when I go away again with the dog wondering where I am."

Despite the eleventh series coming to a close, Vera will be back on Sunday for the launch of the twelfth series after the eleventh featured a number of unexpected delays.

Vera returns for series 12 on Sunday at 8pm on ITV.
