Death in Paradise to return for fourth series

The Caribbean crime drama, starring Kris Marshall, Sara Martins and Gary Carr, has been given a fourth season by BBC1

Don your sun hat and get out those flip flops, BBC1 is returning to Saint Marie.


Death in Paradise, the BBC1 crime drama set on the sunny Caribbean island, has been given a fourth series. 

The recommissioning of the drama, which follows the island’s police department as they solve murder mysteries, comes after the show’s original lead Ben Miller departed the drama at the start of the current series, controversially being killed off in the opening minutes of episode one.

Miller was replaced by My Family actor Kris Marshall, who took the role of DI Humphrey Goodman, another British detective sent to work on the island. And it seems fans, as well as the BBC1 drama department, are confident Marshall can continue to lead the Tuesday night show. 

The third series of Death in Paradise, which also stars Sara Martins, Gary Carr and Danny John-Jules, has consistently pulled in between 6 and 7 million viewers. 

Death in Paradise continues on Tuesday at 9:00pm on BBC1.
