Vera fans have pleaded for the ITV series to "bring back Malcolm" after the pathologist's replacement made her debut on Sunday night. Malcolm Donahue (played by Paul Kaye) departed from the show last weekend, and viewers were quickly introduced to his replacement, Paula Bennett (Sarah Kameela Impey). However, fans were quick to share their thoughts about the new pathologist.
Paula was first introduced to Vera (played by Brenda Blethyn) when a body of a homeless man was found.
As DCI Stanhope went to inspect the body, she received a frosty greeting from the newcomer.
"You must be the new girl welcome aboard," Vera said.
"And you are?" Paula quickly fired back. "No, don't tell me, Vera Stanhope."

"No, love I am detective chief inspector Vera Stanhope," the detective quipped back. "I am leading the investigation."
The pathologist continued: "I have heard a lot about you."
"Well you have the advantage of me, love," Vera said as Aiden shook his head at the exchange.

"When I know, you'll know," Paula replied as DCI Stanhope asked: "Are you going to give me anything?"
"His teeth have been broken, presumably during the attack, the tooth pulp is still soft and I can't find any of the tooth fragments, I am guessing they're in his stomach contents."
Following the exchange, fans took to social media to share their thoughts about Paula, with many pleading for Malcolm to return.
"Paula's a bundle of laughs. Come back Malcolm please," @SallyAnneHarri4 said.
