It’s January, one of the coldest and most depressing months of the year – but wait, what’s this?
It’s only the return of tropical murder mystery series Death In Paradise to warm viewers up, and leave them with a suitably sunny disposition…
- How, when and why is Danny John-Jules leaving Death in Paradise?
- Death in Paradise reveals full list of series 8 guest stars
- Where is Death in Paradise filmed?
My favourite part of the British winter is Death in Paradise on BBC1. I feel warmer by the minute watching it.

Yes, DI Jack Mooney (Ardal O’Hanlon) and his team are back in their annual slot, bringing the sunshine back into our lives as they investigate more unfeasibly contrived killings and drink copious bottles of beer in what must be the murder capital of the world, the otherwise idyllic Caribbean island of Saint Marie.
Still, there was something missing from this opening episode of the new series – one officer Dwayne Myers…
First episode of series 8 of #DeathInParadise was fab! Missing Dwayne!

#DeathInParadise has lost something that balanced it out!
Oh yeah… It’s missing @DannyJohnJules and his portrayal of Office Dwayne Myers.

Gonna miss Dwayne in #DeathInParadise. Fed up with the number of murders having to be solved on the tiny island of Saint-Marie, he’s transferred for a quieter life, I understand, to a peaceful & picturesque little English village in the county of Midsomer…????

Thankfully not, the Saint Marie police officer formally played by Danny John-Jules is actually on a cruise with his dad – and they just picked up a stranded hen party. Sounds like Dwayne’s the one who’s in paradise…
Death in Paradise continues next Thursday at 9pm on BBC1
