Back Thursday January on BBC 1 at 9pm it’s all change for the St Marie police but there’s still an impossible murder to solve in Death in Paradise S10 Ep 1
It’s all change since series 9, and as the new series starts, the St Marie police are down two members of the team (Ruby Patterson and DS Madeleine Dumas). Death in Paradise S10 Ep 1 takes us to a local TV show, when one of the reporters, 25 year-old Melanie Sharpe (Eleanor Fanyinka) is found dead in her pool. All eyes turn to the head anchor of Today With Tourné, Garfield Tourné (Patrick Robinson), and his daughter and fellow reporter Heléne Tourné (Shalisha James-Davis). Had there been some tension between them before Melanie’s death?
Neville Parker (Ralf Little – pictured) and his team get straight to work, but as always there are some bumps in the road. JP (Tobi Bakare) has a lot on his plate as he and Rosie are about to become parents and, as if that wasn’t enough, he also finds himself acting as Selwyn Patterson’s (Don Warrington) boss, after Selwyn volunteers his services as a temporary officer. Neville is convinced that the police station has given him Sick Building Syndrome, which doesn’t make his working life any easier.
The twists and turns of this case prove a challenge for Neville and his team, but an unexpected return from an experienced DS could be just what they need to help crack the case…
Yes, it’s the return of DW Florence Cassell (Joséphine Jobert), last seen leaving the show near the end of series 8, after the murder of her Fiancé, and her own near death. You can keep up with the show via the BBC’s Death in Paradise site, and there’s even a trailer for this week’s episode here.
