A synopsis for new episode As The Crow Flies shares: “Lizzy Swann, a primary school teacher, is found dead at the bottom of a cliff-side coastal walkway. What appears at first to be a terrible accident, quickly becomes a murder investigation as Vera discovers evidence the body has been tampered with.
“The Swann family are horrified by the news; it is the latest in a string of tragedies to befall them; Lizzy’s husband Phil was pensioned out of the army following an injury, his brother died in a car accident and the family’s farm is falling into ruin.
“Vera’s interviews paint a troubling picture of a guarded and paranoid woman who in the days leading up to her death seemed to be burning bridges with friends and family alike.”
