It was only a matter of time before the suggestion of pirates and a treasure map disturbed the breezy calm of the sweltering Caribbean island of Saint-Marie. Buttoned-up and besuited British detective Richard Poole (Ben Miller, channelling Cary Grant so beautifully) of course thinks it’s fanciful nonsense, but there’s a group of treasure-hunters on the island, and one of them ends up dead. Perhaps it’s a pirate’s curse?
Hustle’s Kelly Adams is one of the adventurers, whose important work isn’t in the least bit hindered by the fact she has to wear a bikini at all times, while Jonathan Cake is their worried-looking leader. This is not a happy band of buccaneers. It’s another daft adventure, but no one looks to
Death in Paradise
for gritty social realism; they look to it for a jolly join-the-dots mystery and a sunny slice of balmy escapism. It succeeds on all levels.
Treasure hunters arrive on the island to track down the loot of a legendary pirate, a search that comes to an abrupt halt when the party's geologist is shot dead in leader Daniel Morgan's tent. As the murder weapon was a 300-year-old pistol, DI Poole decides every member of the team is a suspect - but the investigation takes a strange turn when Daniel falls victim to a series of unfortunate and coincidental accidents. Has a mythical pirate's curse become a reality or is someone from the 21st century simply trying to bump him off? Ben Miller and Sara Martins star, with Michael Brandon (Dempsey and Makepeace) and Kelly Adams (Hustle).
