Death in Paradise is a British-French crime show,
which has as much humour as it does heart!
Based on the fictional island in the Caribbean, Saint Marie,
we follow the British police officer’s as they make it their home.
The pressure is on for DI Richard Poole and his team to solve an audacious murder carried out in the presence of DS Bordey on a Caribbean party boat. Emotions are running high – can the inspector crack the case? And will he manage to make an emotional gesture to comfort his grieving friend?
When a marine salvage hunter is killed, the evidence seems to point to one man. It would be an open-and-shut case for the team if it wasn’t for the suspect’s solid alibi. Meanwhile, it is JP’s stag do – and with Dwayne as best man, what could possibly go wrong?
With Richard struck down by a tropical disease and Camille in Paris, it is left to Dwayne and Fidel to solve the apparently impossible murder of a local diver. As if their job isn’t tough enough, they also have to contend with holidaying British cop DS Angela Young, who proves to be even more annoying than Richard.
A university reunion party that DI Richard Poole is attending is brought to an abrupt halt when one of the group is murdered with an ice pick.
With the case proving particularly sensitive, a new British detective, DI Humphrey Goodman, arrives on the island to help the team get to the bottom of the mysterious case. As the station’s newest recruit with his own set of methods, will Humphrey be able to adjust to his new team and surroundings?
Richard sees the dark side of show business when a comeback concert ends in the most public of murders. If sun, sea and sand were not bad enough, he now has to conquer his fear of snakes to find the elusive killer.
When a woman not only predicts her own murder but also gives a description of the murderer, it all feels too easy for DI Richard Poole. Can a case from the past help solve the present day murder? And more importantly, can Richard convince the team that it has nothing to do with voodoo spirits?
There is an unwelcome blast from the past for DI Richard Poole when a former colleague turns up in Saint Marie. Will an extra detective on the Caribbean island prove to be a help to Richard and the team as they try to explain a seemingly random killing, or a hindrance?
Dwayne ends up embroiled in a murder investigation when a piece of incriminating evidence is found at the scene of the crime. Can Richard solve the case and meet a deadline that means he will finally get what he wants – a return home?
A murder investigation becomes more than personal for Richard when the victim is murdered while handcuffed to him. With his job on the line, he needs all his British rigour and stoutest brogues to get to the heart of the Paradise Beach mystery.
A storm is brewing as a hurricane heads for Saint Marie. Is the storm to blame for a death at the university, or is something more sinister afoot? DI Richard Poole learns that he cannot fight the weather but, with DS Bordey and the team, will he manage to stop a murderer in their tracks?
