Review

Hours after salvaging £300,000-worth of ancient silver coins from a Saint-Marie shipwreck and having a violent argument with his rival Newton Farrell, diver and treasure hunter Tosh Walker is stabbed to death on Newton’s boat. His body is thrown overboard and washes up on the beach the following morning.

So a cut and dried case that Dwayne reckons should be sorted by lunchtime. But Death in Paradise regulars will know otherwise and should quickly spot the giveaway flaw in the murderer’s plan, even if the exact method and motive aren’t immediately clear. However, partially solving these mysteries never spoils the enjoyment of this series – it just makes you feel slightly smug that you got to the answer quicker than Humphrey and his Caribbean coppers do. Lorcan Cranitch and Jill Halfpenny guest star.

Summary

A marine salvage team unearth the legendary Saint Marie silver, but their celebration comes to an abrupt halt when their captain is found dead on the beach with a stab wound to his chest. With the captain's son Sam, wife Naomi and assistant Addison having watertight alibis, attention turns to rival treasure hunter Newton Farrell. Meanwhile, Dwayne is on best man duty as he organises the ultimate stag party for a terrified JP, and Florence is determined to find out what Humphrey got up to the night before his own wedding. Caribbean crime drama, guest starring Jack Donnelly (Atlantis) and Jill Halfpenny (Humans).
