Review

Good news: our serotonin levels are set to remain high in January for the next couple of years because sunny Death in Paradise has just been recommissioned for two more series. And let’s hope show bosses manage to keep the present on-screen team in place – shady newcomer Marlon, who’s constantly trying to turn situations to his own financial advantage, is already fitting in well and Neville is by far the best DI in years (sorry, Humph fans). 

Luckily, tonight’s case matches the quality of the current line-up. It’s a tricksy little mystery centred around a couple of lottery winners and their two friends (Kelvin Fletcher and Jason Manford are among the guest stars), one of whom appears to die, only for their body to then vanish into thin air. All of which leaves our detectives wondering how to draw up a suspect list when there’s no actual corpse…

Summary

It seems money doesn't buy happiness when lottery winner Cherry is found dead at her luxurious villa, much to the horror of her husband and their visiting friends. As usual, Neville and the team are presented with a real head-scratcher when it turns out no one was in the house at the time - and the mystery deepens when the victim's body apparently vanishes into thin air. Meanwhile, JP is training unruly new officer Marlon, aware that his wife Rosey is due to give birth at any time. Kelvin Fletcher, Jason Manford and Faye McKeever guest star.
