Episode 5: Switcharoo

Summary

The celebratory launch of a new luxury resort is cut short when a woman is found electrocuted in her hotel bathtub - with the door locked from the inside. It looks like a simple case of suicide, but with Jack Mooney no longer around to confirm Commissioner Selwyn's suspicions, DI Neville Parker is temporarily flown over from Manchester to close the case. However, he soon realises that island life is not for him, so when evidence of suspicious activity turns up, he is dismayed to realise he will have to extend his stay and investigate the case as murder. Ralf Little joins the cast, with guest appearances by Steve Pemberton and Samantha Bond

Review

There’s yet another corporate do on the island of Saint Marie, as a British developer launches a timeshare complex. His daughter leaves the party early, heading up to her room. Uh-oh, heading up to her doom, more like, as no one ever leaves a party in Death in Paradise without meeting the Grim Reaper before the opening credits.

But in a remarkable break with tradition, considering all of the British nationals who’ve been scythed down in DIP, a senior detective from the victim’s local force arrives to investigate. So welcome DI Neville Parker, of Manchester Police. And welcome Ralf Little, Ardal O’Hanlon’s replacement. You’ll like Little, he brings a light comic touch and a certain charm.

Of course, every detective must have quirks, and Parker is super-sensitive to sunlight and suffers from myriad allergies. But never mind, he plans to catch the next plane home…
