Episode 7: Music of Murder

Summary

An outing to see Dwayne's favourite group is cut short by the murder of the lead singer, who was not exactly popular. He regularly annoyed his bandmates with his pre-performance relaxation routine, which involved lying in a coffin below stage for 15 minutes - prompting Richard and Camille to wonder whether it was enough for any of them to want him dead for real. Caribbean crime drama, guest starring Keith Duffy, Ray Fearon and Robbie Gee

Review

Everyone in the Saint Marie police department is having fun at the comeback concert of a much- loved rock band. Everyone except DI Richard Poole (STILL in a suit and tie; someone, buy him a T-shirt). But even Poole’s interest is piqued when the band’s lead singer is found dead on stage in his voodoo-prop coffin, a gunshot wound to his head. There are suggestions of suicide, but he was not a popular man and soon Poole (Ben Miller) is unearthing enemies.

It’s a thin story to stretch across an hour and some of the acting is awful. A shame that Death in Paradise has run out of steam so quickly.
