Murder in the Polls

Series 6 - Episode 8 Murder in the Polls



The writers have managed a smooth segue between leading men and Ardal O’Hanlon is settling in nicely. There’s just one problem. The much-missed Humphrey had a fine repertoire of loose linen jackets: he summed up the rumpled Englishman abroad – but cool with it, in his way.

Now though, his replacement Jack, while a genial fellow, has a dress sense that doesn’t reach beyond the deadly combination of tie with short-sleeved shirt. Against the gorgeous backdrop of Guadeloupe – which is to say, Saint Marie – he’s a stylistic blot on the landscape.

But as I say, Jack’s heart is in the right place, even if there’s a token attempt this week to raise a doubt over whether he has a future in Saint Marie. Meanwhile, there’s a case to solve at a polling station for the mayoral election, where one of the candidates is somehow – bafflingly – knifed in the back.


The Saint Marie mayoral elections are thrown into disarray when one of the candidates is stabbed to death in the polling booth while casting his vote. Can Irish detective Jack Mooney and his team get to the bottom of this political puzzle? Ardal O'Hanlon stars.
