"Enjoyable to watch."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Started off slowly to begin with but have really been enjoying the episodes. Will most certainly be buying the next season of series. Not predictable which is really great with the murder mysteries.

"A light hearted who done it!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Each episode is, a mystery which is complete with its solution, and some light hearted comedy. Very enjoyable.

"Not what I was expecting,,, thoroughly enjoyed the twists"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I thought that this would be another cheap shot at crime solving, but it was a mixture of psychology and brain work that kept me watching this series… give it a go, if you enjoy the twistiness of story lines then this is for you.

Death in Paradise is a warm, light-hearted BBC British mystery / detective TV Show set against a stunning Caribbean island backdrop.

Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve an impossible murder, quintessentially British cop Richard Poole is a total fish out of water – he hates sun, sea and sand. Awaiting Richard is a ramshackle station and a very different type of policing. His new partner, DS Camille Bordey is instinctive, feisty & brilliant and the rest of the team certainly have their own unique way of doing things.

Though Richard would never admit it, they make the perfect team. With a new mind-boggling mystery to solve every episode, Death in Paradise will intrigue and tantalise.

About Death in Paradise
Death in Paradise is a British crime comedy-drama created by Robert Thorogood and starring Ben Miller and Sara Martins. The programme is a joint UK and French production filmed on the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe. wikipedia

Death in Paradise Reviews

“Sun, sea & suspense: if you like a classic whodunnit, and tropical settings, you won't want to miss Death in Paradise” Daily Mail, UK

“Eight one-hour self-contained light mystery dramas with a serious touch of Golden Age mystery structure. We’ve had a locked room mystery, a murder while the victim was handcuffed to the chief detective and six other odd conundrums…The highlights for me were episode 1, playing on a couple of classic themes, the locked room murder and something from one of my favourite Agatha Christie novels – I won’t say which one as that would give it away, episode 3, where a woman predicts her own murder, in particular for the horrific final twist and the reveal of all of the clues pointing to the killer in episode 8. The other overall highlight was the avoidance of the guest-star murderer, very common in, say, Midsomer Murders. Is Richard Briers in the episode? Or one of the Foxes? Guess who the killer is! This was generally achieved by sticking in at least two famous actors into the cast – the casting highlight for me was episode 3, with both Michael Maloney and Nicholas Farrell, both habitual guest-villains. It didn’t always work – the killer in episode 5 stood out like a sore thumb for this reason, as did another, which might have worked better if he’d been integrated into the cast a little more. But regardless of this, the reveal of the clues, the lecture on why and how we, the viewers, should have worked it out was something that is all too rare in modern detective television was always a high point – in fact, I’d go so far as to say non-existent on this side of the Atlantic. The Mentalist, Psych and Castle make a stab at it in the US, but not to this degree. The other notable feature of the denouement was that usually it wasn’t a last minute clue that clinched it. The clues were there from the start and you had plenty of time to mull over them and come to the wrong conclusion. So, another series please, as fast as possible.” classicmystery­.wordpress.com
