Episode 6: The Way The Wind Blows

When the body of Lisa Millworth is found washed up on the shore of the River Tyne, DCI Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) questions who would want a beloved mother, loyal friend and popular manager at a green energy company dead.  With few clues to launch her inquiry, Vera soon learns that Lisa has been in the middle of a storm both professionally and personally.

As Vera and the team piece together Lisa’s final movements, Vera must delve deep into her checkered past as well as deal with more recent and potentially deadly problems that Lisa has been up against. Unresolved wounds,  grievances, betrayal, misplaced loyalty and corporate cover ups all bubble to the surface which means Vera has to work harder than ever to zero in on the killer.
