Death in Paradise

Font Size:

When a British policeman is found murdered in a locked room on the tiny paradise island of Saint-Marie, Detective Inspector Richard Poole (Ben Miller) is sent to investigate. He’s the perfect man to solve the case. Unfortunately for Richard, he hates sun, sea and sand.

What Richard finds in Saint-Marie is a ramshackle station and a very different type of policing. The fact that there’s a goat in one of the cells says it all. He can’t get out of there fast enough, but there’s a job to do and he does it brilliantly.

His reward – a permanent posting to the island, his own personal hell on Earth.

Richard’s team have their own way of doing things. His new partner, feisty DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) is instinctive, wild, exotic and brilliant in her own way. Police Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) is a little too cosy with criminals for Richard’s liking, but he has his uses. And Fidel Best (Gary Carr) is as honest as the day is long – at times frustrating, at times the key to an impenetrable mystery.

Though Richard would never admit it, they make the perfect team, and bring heart and humour to mind-boggling murders in the most beautiful of settings. With a new mystery to solve every episode, Death in Paradise will intrigue and tantalise – but will Richard ever come to see the beauty of his surroundings? Perhaps not, but he might one day loosen his tie…
