General | Latest Info

Since launching in 2011, Death in Paradise has consistently been ratings smash hit for BBC One - winning over audiences with its combination of murder mystery in stunning Caribbean setting. Set on fictional Island Of Saint Marie, TV series follows adventure - and often misadventures - of number of British detectives who are transferred from their gritty London jobs to sunny Island. And lay - back Detective show is back again for season 9, where it introduces new lead cast member Ralf Little into fold after fan favourite Ardal OHanlon announced he was leaving show. Speaking to bt. Com and other journalists at launch of series, cast members Tobi Bakare, Shyko Amos, Elizabeth Bourgine and Nina Wadia reveal why new series gives audiences what they want - with few surprises along way, sun - soaked series is filmed on French Island Of Guadeloupe, which transforms itself into fictional Island Of Saint - Marie, British overseas territory, for show. And ever since its launch, Death in Paradise has always aired on TV in winter - providing much - needed tropical escape from British winter weather. This sunny setting is one of reasons audiences keep tuning in year after year - it's just what you need to get through first few weeks of year, when everyone is on post - Christmas comedown and weather in UK is cold and miserable. Series Acts As Temporary Remedy For SAD Of Sorts. Shows Executive Producer Tim Key agrees: Obviously, location is beautiful, feeling of warmth for that time of year. Everyone needs bit of sun. Needless to say, season 9 follows same winning weather formula, with show Producer Ella Kelly telling US that there is one upcoming episode in particular that looks like Paradise on screen. She explain: You forget how beautiful it is. Episode 6 is on Desert It's Island adventure story, and looking at that, it is Paradise, it incredible. You think that be real. It just looks so gorgeous. As former Death in Paradise star Kris Marshall explained to Radio Times few years back, series is like wrapping sunny blanket around you in January. Ardal OHanlon has played DI Jack Mooney in crime drama for three sun - soaked years, but he announced he 'd be waving goodbye to character in late 2019. Irish Comedian And Actor Will Be Replaced By Ralf Little As New Lead Detective In Series. Ralf will play DI Neville Parker, who is sent to fictional Saint Marie to investigate suspicious death. Speaking about handing over baton, Elizabeth Bourgine, who plays bar owner Catherine Bordey, say: Ralf brings amazing energy. It was wonderful working with Ardal, but it was different with Ralf. Hes been fantastic. Tobi Bakare agree that Ralf brings different energy to show. He explain: Ralfs is very different to Ardal, who was very persuasive as Detective. That was his schtick.

Where was series 8 set?

On north - west coast of Basse - Terre, Deshaies is epicentre of all things Death in Paradise in Guadeloupe. It features in show as Honore, capital of Saint - Marie, and is also where cast and crew are based when they film in Guadeloupe for six months each year. Deshaies is pretty town you see in aerial shots, with red - roofed church and colourful buildings set around semicircular bay of boats and surrounded by jungle - covered hills. In real life, it is fairly sleepy fishing port with waterfront row of bars and restaurants that are favourite stop for yachties sailing around Caribbean - and definitely not hotbed of crime. One thing I discovered when I started looking at Death Paradises locations is just how many of them are in and around Deshaies. As well as main filming sites, it also crops up as harbour where people arrive or leave island, its lot of background street scenes, and practically every swanky rental villa in area has had at least one murder in it. Location Team Have Clever Job Of Making Small Stretch Of Coast Look Like Whole Island Of Different Locations. Which is good news if you want to explore it yourself - their concentration around Deshaies makes it easy to DIY Death in Paradise location tour. Or if youre short on time or dont have car, there is guide tour for groups of four or more. First Stop Had To Be Most Important Location - Honores Police Station. It is right next to Deshaies church in centre of town, so it is really easy to find. In real life, police incident room is Deshaies priests office, and church hall next door is used for cells. It was closed up and deserted when we visited, so there was no chance of having peek inside, but other than Honore police sign being missing, it looked just like it does on screen - right down to chickens pecking around outside. Out front there is car park, which is where they park police jeeps, and it has also been used for street market in few episodes. One thing you dont see screen though is cemetery - and theyd clearly need one with that murder rate. There is actually big cemetery on hill on edge of Deshaies, but it is usually excluded from filming, though you can sometimes spot it slightly out of focus in background. Another series regular location Catherines Bar. It is pretty much compulsory for each episode to feature at least one drinking session in bar, either in mid - case when there is tricky problem to solve or to celebrate solving murder. We find beachside terrace on show at northern end of bay, just outside restaurant called Le Madras.
