Equally as good as Series One
Following on from series one, it was interesting and kept the viewer watching, just when you think, this case can't be solved a vital (usually useless) piece of information saves the day…excellent follow up series.
Death in Paradise is a warm, light-hearted BBC British mystery / detective TV Series set against a stunning Caribbean island backdrop.
For a detective who can't stand sand, even paradise can be Hell! D.I. Richard Poole is still trapped on the stunning Caribbean island of Saint Marie where, despite the sun, sea and sand continuing to irritate, he remains as brilliant as ever at solving seemingly impossible murders. His eye for detail, relentless logic and stubborn refusal to leave anything unexplained works seamlessly with the instinctive and insightful approach of the beautiful Sergeant Camille Bordey. Helped by the unorthodox Dwayne and ambitious Fidel, Richard and his team successfully tackle a baffling array of unique murder mysteries… from a death supposedly caused by a pirate's curse to a nun being killed in a locked room. But London beckons… as Richard's relationship with both the island and Camille develops will he, at last, find his place in the world?
Death in Paradise Complete Series 2 on DVD (3 disc set).
Death in Paradise TV Show Reviews
“Sun, sea & suspense: if you like a classic whodunnit, and tropical settings, you won't want to miss Death in Paradise” Daily Mail, UK
“Eight one-hour self-contained light mystery dramas with a serious touch of Golden Age mystery structure. We’ve had a locked room mystery, a murder while the victim was handcuffed to the chief detective and six other odd conundrums…The highlights for me were episode 1, playing on a couple of classic themes, the locked room murder and something from one of my favourite Agatha Christie novels – I won’t say which one as that would give it away, episode 3, where a woman predicts her own murder, in particular for the horrific final twist and the reveal of all of the clues pointing to the killer in episode 8. The other overall highlight was the avoidance of the guest-star murderer, very common in, say, Midsomer Murders. Is Richard Briers in the episode? Or one of the Foxes? Guess who the killer is! This was generally achieved by sticking in at least two famous actors into the cast – the casting highlight for me was episode 3, with both Michael Maloney and Nicholas Farrell, both habitual guest-villains. It didn’t always work – the killer in episode 5 stood out like a sore thumb for this reason, as did another, which might have worked better if he’d been integrated into the cast a little more. But regardless of this, the reveal of the clues, the lecture on why and how we, the viewers, should have worked it out was something that is all too rare in modern detective television was always a high point – in fact, I’d go so far as to say non-existent on this side of the Atlantic. The Mentalist, Psych and Castle make a stab at it in the US, but not to this degree. The other notable feature of the denouement was that usually it wasn’t a last minute clue that clinched it. The clues were there from the start and you had plenty of time to mull over them and come to the wrong conclusion. So, another series please, as fast as possible.” classicmystery.wordpress.com
