Fans were thrilled to see DCI Stanhope (played by Brenda Blethyn) and her sidekick Aiden Healy (Kenny Doughty) back solving another murder. However, when Vera was chatting to Mark Edwards (Riley Jones) in the office, eagle-eyed fans spotted a photo of Brenda Blethyn’s dog Jack on the police officer’s desk.

Taking to social media, Riley asked his followers whether they had guessed the murderer one hour into the episode.

Kirsty Downham was quick to respond by asking: “No idea but love ya dog photo on ya desk. Is it ya real one?” (sic)

“It’s @BrendaBlethyn dog Jack,” Dawn went on to respond.

The Mark Edwards star chipped in: “Jack always steals the limelight when it’s a shot of my desk! We always try to get him in.”

“Has he ever made a real appearance?” Kirsty quizzed.

Riley went on to pay a tribute to one of his co-stars who made a cameo appearance in the programme.

Sharing a snap of actress, Catherine Dryden, the actor wrote: “Massive well done to this one making their TV debut tonight!

@C3Dryden you b****y smashed it! And had a lot of you fooled!

“Friends for 10 years. Performed on stage together, lived together, and now on TV together!

“Super proud of you. Can’t wait to see what’s next.” (sic)

Brenda has often spoken about her beloved dog in the past, admitting she isn’t allowed him on set.

She said in an interview last year: “You couldn’t get anything done if Jack was actually on set — he’d keep hanging on the back of my leg!”
