To mark the tenth anniversary of Death in Paradise, Sara Martins will reprise her role as fan favourite, D.S. Camille Bordey, for a surprise return to the show when it airs in early 2021.
To celebrate a decade of one of the most loved British crime dramas, Sara will appear in a special two-episode story. Returning to Saint Marie for the first time since her departure, Camille is thrown into an ongoing investigation involving her mother, Mayor Catherine Bordey. Catherine’s life is turned upside down when the death of a friend pulls her into grave danger. How will the case unfold, and will we see old acquaintances reunited?
Sara Martins says:
“There are some characters that never leave you and I’m still Camille, wherever I go. After many years, people still reference and send their love to me as Camille, so it was obvious that I had to go back and the 10th anniversary is the perfect opportunity! I want to celebrate the longevity of Death in Paradise. It was life changing for me and I’m so grateful to the show. I feel like I’m going back home with new folks and old, to bring more fun and joy. I’m really happy to wear Camille’s “twinkly-ness” again.”
Sara joins series regulars Ralf Little as D.I. Neville Parker, Don Warrington as Commissioner Selwyn Patterson, Tobi Bakare as Sergeant JP Hooper, and Elizabeth Bourgine as Mayor Catherine Bordey.
As well as the usual baffling murders, intriguing puzzles and famous guest stars, it was announced earlier this year that Josephine Jobert will return as D.S. Florence Cassell, and Tahj Miles will join as a new member of the team in the shape of wayward 19-year-old turned promising police recruit, Marlon Pryce. How will the old guard take to new blood in the police squad?
Cultbox has already reported on some of the guest stars appearing in 2021, but it’s clear there’s a lot happening to shake up the show and it’s not nostalgia for nostalgia’s sake. The full BBC press release can be read here:
