  1. Brenda is a marvellous actress and down to earth lady.
    I think other women especially enjoy seeing the character being competent and in charge within a demanding job, and getting acknowledgement for being so. I think it worthy of mention as “mature women” so often get relegated to character and small parts, rather than front and center. As a senior myself, I appreciate this. Chapeau for a truly grande lady who shines in character roles as much as she demonstrates her sense of humor and has no need to hide behind anyone due to age.
    Brenda is a very attractive and Beauty woman. I’d love to have her as a next door neighbour. Brenda’s smiling is always precious!!
    Congratulation to this british treasure!!!!!


  2. Love you Brenda! Love your show “VERA” too, watch it on our knowledge network in British Columbia, Canada every Saturday night. I’m just a year younger than yourself. I would have never guessed that you were 75. Keep up the good work girl!!! I think Joe is great too, as is all the cast. Cheers, Dora Nanaimo, B.C.
