Review

At this rate, the only remaining long-standing cast member left on Death in Paradise will be Harry the Lizard. This time next year, I wouldn’t put it past him to have top billing. Because, yes, we’ve had another exit, though balance may well be restored thanks to the arrival of Madeleine Dumas (Aude Legastelois), who’s introduced as an internal affairs officer sent to investigate following the recent shooting.

She has “new sidekick” written all over her, despite it initially seeming as though she’ll be curtailing Jack’s time in Saint Marie. Now, if only he could prove himself by solving a knotty mystery... Oh wait, a radio DJ has been killed live on air, you say? That should do nicely.

Summary

The people of Saint Marie go into mourning when Dezzie Dixon, the island's favourite radio presenter, is murdered live on air and Jack must unravel a challenging mystery to find the culprit. However, his task is made all the more difficult when Detective Sergeant Madeleine Dumas from internal affairs arrives to assess working practices following the recent shooting, and proceeds to question the inspector's every move. Richard Blackwood guest stars in the whodunit, with Ardal O'Hanlon and Aude Legastelois.
