Vera and her sidekick Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty) are tasked with solving the murder of elementary school teacher Lizzy Swann.

The pair are joined by a number of familiar faces, including former Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson, who played Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan in the hit BBC crime drama.

His character in Vera – Phil – is married to Lizzy, while his on-screen mother is played by actress Ann Mitchell, who is known to soap fans as Cora Cross from EastEnders.

Meanwhile, Lizzy’s sister-in-law is played by Simone Lahbib, who plays Katy Lewis in EastEnders and Helen Stewart in the prison drama, Bad Girls.

This proved rather distracting to some viewers, who took to Twitter to discuss the all-star cast.

One person wrote: “This episode has all the soap rejections – can’t take them seriously #Vera.”

Another added: “Lots of old stats and regular / Holby faces tonight. If #Emmerdale’s Meena ends up with a future episode, the OTT scammer will be easily caught by #Vera Okay.[sic]”

A third tweeted: “The number of guests on this show is getting annoying, too many for me to count!”

Actor Craig, 45, recently spoke to Radio Times about his role in Vera, saying: “I was fascinated when people wanted me to be the northernmost when I was asked to be in Vera.

“I walk around the streets practicing and talking to myself to get my northeastern accent right, maybe I look a little odd to passersby.”

The episode also featured several former soap stars including former EastEnders actress Ann Mitchell.
