Death in Paradise
One of the UK’s most loved dramas, set on the fictional Caribbean island of St Marie.
Blending comedy, drama and fiendishly clever murders, as well as a joyous soundtrack of reggae, ska and dancehall music, Death in Paradise has been a mainstay of British television for the last ten years. In that time, four fish-out-of-water detectives have made the fictional island of Saint Marie their home, working with a lively and passionate team of local officers and characters to solve baffling murders that Agatha Christie would have been proud of. A host of famous British actors have appeared in the show in the 80 episodes since it began in 2011, and many more have become stars since their appearance in it.
