What Is Death In Paradise About?
British detective Richard Poole (Ben Miller) is assigned to investigate the murder of a British police officer on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie. After he successfully finds the murderer, he is ordered by his supervisors to replace the victim and stay on as the head detective inspector (DI) of the island, solving new cases as they appear and being the object of many fish-out-of-water jokes.
At the start of Series 3, Poole is murdered, and clumsy London detective Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) arrives to investigate the death of his deadpan predecessor. He then stays in the job as chief investigator on the island. In the second half of Series 6, he resigns so he can start a new life in London with his girlfriend Martha Lloyd, after forming a relationship with her while she was staying at Saint Marie on holiday for a month. Goodman's replacement on Saint Marie is DI Jack Mooney (Ardal O'Hanlon), a recent widower grieving the loss of his wife, who assisted the team on a case in London. Mooney remains on the island until mid-way through Series 9, when he concludes that he has simply been running away from his real life after his wife's death and decides to return to London with his daughter. His replacement is DI Neville Parker (Ralf Little), who dislikes being on the island and has severe allergies, especially with mosquito bites; he initially came to the island because they needed a British detective to sign off on a case and had to stay longer after a period of illness rendered him unfit to travel for a month.
Death In Paradise TV series aired on BBC One network in the US.
