    Summary

    Vera was used to the darkness playing tricks on her mind. She lived in the middle of nowhere, and in the darkness out on the moor, far away form any man-made light, every bush and tree became a creeping shadow waiting to attack.

    But shadows didn't gasp, or squeel, only humans did and when she hears the soft sounds of a child outside the window she gets up on her feet at once.

    Summary

    Dr Billy Cartwright - brilliant pathologist and serial womaniser. He finds something to halt his wanderings, to soothe his fraught brow. A new mechanism to cope with the utter brutality of dealing with the horrors of his work, especially this new, terrible case.
    -
    A fic revolving around the character of Billy Cartwright, played by the gorgeous Paul Ritter, in the Vera TV series, also pulling some pieces from the books by Ann Cleeves. In the books he is a Crime Scene Manager, in the TV show he is a pathologist, so this will be a mix of both of those, usually distinct, roles. I've given him the title of 'Dr' here, as he probably is one, if he's a pathologist. He may even be a consultant (his title then would be 'Mr') or a Professor (just like Randolph!). But I kept him as a Dr for simplicity's sake. Sorry Billy! Please forgive me?
    -
    Rated Explicit, but that really doesn't kick in until the last chapter.

    Please heed warnings and tags and notes etc before reading.

    Summary

    Who lives in a house like this? Lets take a walk along Ritter Street on a bright sunny day and see.
    -

    I really can't draw, so I have to weave a picture with words for Paul instead.
    -

    Written for Paul Ritter and the plethora of characters he played over the years of his prolific career. He isn't gone, he's just resting.

    I hope I do his characters justice. Every one of them was played to such perfection by him. He's a hard act to live up to!

    He made it so that I could almost touch them as I watched him dancing across the screen.

    Summary

    I´m a big fan of Penelope Wilton and that I want her to play a returning character on "Vera".

    My idea is that Penny plays a retired psychologist (called her Dr Jean Forthsight) . She and and Vera meet one day during a murder investigation and even after the case is closed, Vera sometimes consults her and asks for advice. To make a long story short, they bicker, fall in love and get married (because I say so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
