Ben Miller investigates a Death in Paradise.

Death in Paradise is a new eight-part Drama series from new television writer Robert Thorogood, produced in association with BBC Worldwide for BBC One. It will star Ben Miller (The Armstrong and Miller Show, Doc Martin) and film actress Sara Martins in a classic fish-out-of-water story; the English policeman working abroad.


Detective Inspector Richard Poole (Miller) finds himself posted to the Carribean island of Saint-Marie: his idea of hell. He hates the sun, the sea, the sand, and doesn't get how the Saint-Marie police system works, but still, a talented policeman, he gets on with the job: to investigate the murder of another British policeman. He works alongside exotic local Camille (Martins), investigating a new, intriguing murder in each episode.


Also starring Lenora Crichlow of Being Human, Death in Paradise was filmed on location in Guadeloupe and is Thorogood's first television screen credit.

It will air on Tuesday 25th October at 9pm on BBC One.
