Death In Paradise
Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve a mysterious murder, Detective Inspector Richard Poole is a total fish out of water. A quintessentially British cop, he would much prefer the London drizzle and a freshly pressed shirt to blue seas, sparkling sands and gorgeous tropical weather. This warm, light-hearted detective series takes place against a stunning Caribbean island backdrop - as far away from the grey skies of London as you could possibly get.
What Richard finds 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.
He may be stuck there, but he's not going to let his standards slip. He'll bring British rigor to this relaxed Caribbean workplace. Always in a suit and tie, eschewing sandals for a stout brogue, he's the very embodiment of the Englishman abroad. He can get through his ordeal, if only he could find a decent cup of tea.
Stars Ben Miller, Sara Martins, Danny John-Jules, Gary Carr, Elizabeth Bougine, and Don Warrington.
