Death in Paradise

Death in Paradise

Series 3 - Episode 6



It will probably take you all of five minutes to work out how this episode’s murder was committed and even who is a suspect – although admittedly the motive is gratifyingly obscure. So once you’ve solved this mystery, you may prefer to try identifying the plethora of familiar faces among the cast and recall what they’ve been in before.

The story revolves around a group of bird watchers who are hoping to spot Saint-Marie’s rare green parrot. It’s clear there are tensions within the group but stabbing someone in the back is a rather extreme way to make your point. Not surprisingly, the scriptwriters can’t resist referencing Monty Python’s dead parrot sketch.


A birdwatcher is stabbed to death with his own knife, a case that holds a certain fascination for Humphrey, who was a keen twitcher in his youth. The victim was one of a group of enthusiasts who had visited the island for a glimpse of a famous parrot - but the team soon faces a conundrum as all the suspects were in full sight of one another when the crime was committed. As the cops search for answers, they uncover evidence of long-standing rivalries, secret jealousies and romantic entanglements. But would any of it justify killing a harmless ornithologist?
