I've really enjoyed Fiona Spence's portrayal of Vera. So much more than a one dimensional character, she played her with a wide range of emotions. She wasn't always the nasty one, as her scenes with her tending to Meg after she had been shot show. At the end of the day though, the bad always managed to rise to the top. I think this due to her 'programming' by her mother. One of the better, more rounded characters that Prisoner produced.
