Amy Baston, who managed to chat with Brenda, said: “I spoke to her [Brenda] and she asked if I was from Amble, I said yes and that I had lived here all my life.

"She then said that I was very lucky as Amble was beautiful, and I replied saying that I was very lucky.”

Filming took place at the harbour and at the Coble Quay apartments.

Amble and other parts of the Northumberland coast have often been used as Vera film locations in the past.

In a recent Radio Times interview, Brenda Blethyn revealed: “The first [episode] I’ve read is someone found dead on a boat,” she says. “So there’ll be some nice locations on that one!”
