Merdel Jordine (Vera)


Vera is one of the young people Liz and Simon meet at the Misfit settlement run by Beth in the jungle during their adventure in the 'Burn-up.'

  Vera busies herself with looking after the community and tries to grow vegetables in the uncompromising soil of tropical Britain.

Vera is quite emotional and seems to treat the vegetables as her children - so she is distraught when they die due to the horrendous heat of the 'Burn-up'. She also has something of a soft-spot for Simon...
