As well as being home to some of the most exotic murders on TV, the sizzling Caribbean island of Saint Marie is also host to some very familiar faces.

Regular cast

Kris Marshall as DI Humphrey Goodman


Who is DI Humphrey Goodman?

DI Goodman is the main detective on the fictional island, taking over from Ben Miller’s Richard Poole in series three. Although he has the same knack for details and crime-solving as his predecessor, unlike Poole, Goodman fully embraces Carribean life. However, Goodman is very clumsy and is never far away from an accident in a lovable Hugh Grant kind of way.

Who is Kris Marshall?

Most will know him as lovable idiot Nick Harper in BBC sitcom My Family, or as American-bound Colin Frissell in Love Actually.

And yes, he’s also very recognisable as Adam from those BT adverts between 2005 and 2011, plus as Dave in BBC sitcom Citizen Khan.

Joséphine Jobert as DS Florence Cassel


Who is Florence Cassel?

DS Cassel is a young detective with a great nose for sniffing out guilty parties. She’s strong-minded, charming and, above all, an outstanding police officer.

Who is Joséphine Jobert?


Before starring in Death in Paradise, Jobert starred in a number of French TV shows, including the popular soap Sous le soleil de Saint-Tropez.
