Review

Even if you approach Death in Paradise with a sigh, seeing it as the crime-drama equivalent of a paper plane, it does still swoop along quite nicely. The Guadeloupe setting (sorry, I mean Saint Marie) is calibrated to maximum prettiness and the cast click. The only thing astonishing about the series is its ratings – an average of eight million for the last run, knocking the likes of Midsomer Murders for six.

Talking of which, tonight’s episode begins with a cricket stroke that wins a match for St Honore, but the celebrations prove lethal. Humphrey, meanwhile, is having a Martha-shaped crisis: “This was meant to be a holiday romance, no strings attached,” he groans, “until I stupidly fell in love.”

Summary

The president of the local cricket club is found shot dead in the middle of the pitch after a recent victory. Suspicion falls on his family and fellow players, but all of them have an alibi. JP thinks Dwayne is keeping something from him and wonders how well he knows his friend, and Humphrey dreads Martha's imminent departure from the island.
