Earlier this year our flagship vessel the Fortuna was featured on Season 9 Episode 3 of Vera. Over the course of a week in August, ITV & Silverprint Pictures filmed Brenda Blethyn OBE as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope – as she unravels the mystery of a suspicious death on the Tyne. Despite the darker themes of the show, the episode provides an excellent opportunity to illustrate our vessel in action on the River Tyne throughout the program’s opening sequences.
Vera has a done a fantastic job of featuring well known locations throughout the North East and sharing our home with the rest of the world. With this episode reaching over 8.5 million views so far, we at River Escapes are proud to have had the opportunity to showcase the River Tyne. If you decide to cruise with us, you may see a familiar face in Jim our skipper who made a cameo on the episode.
