Death In Paradise

Ben Miller (BBC/Red Planet Pictures/Philip Volkers)

The quintessentially English detective Richard Poole is back, returning with his investigative team to solve more murder mysteries on the idyllic Caribbean island of Saint Marie, in a brand new series of Death In Paradise.

DI Poole’s learning to cope with the tropical climate and laid-back atmosphere of Saint Marie, but every day still presents a challenge for the traditional detective. When the owner of a former sugar plantation, Roger Seymour, is discovered with a machete in his back, Poole and his team have a seemingly impossible case to solve.

Despite countless suspects, the team struggle to pinpoint the murderer, as they all have seemingly cast iron alibis – and many were together when the murder took place. Was it a disgruntled worker with a grudge? Was Roger’s alcoholic ex-wife, Nicole in an alliance with his adopted nephew, Harry? Or does Roger’s new, and much younger, girlfriend have something to hide?

The team soon realise that the history of the plantation is just as key to completing the puzzle, but with the island celebrating the festival of love, Erzulie, Saint Marie seems to be bringing out the unexpected in everyone – not least Richard and Camille...

DI Richard Poole is played by Ben Miller, Camille Bordey by Sara Martins, Dwayne Myers by Danny John-Jules, Fidel Best by Gary Carr, Commissioner Selwyn Patterson by Don Warrington, Roger Seymour by James Cosmo, Harry Seymour by Tom Ward, Nicole Seymour by Stephanie Beacham and Kim Neville by Estella Daniels.
