The BBC/France Télévisions murder-mystery co-production Death In Paradise was released on DVD in the U.K. this week.

Ben Miller stars in the lead role as Detective Inspector Richard Poole. Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf, The Crouches), Lenora Crichlow (Being Human, Fast Girls), and French actress Sara Martins (C.I.D., Orpailleur) co-star in the 8-part TV series.  The series also features loads of guest-stars, including Colin Salmon.

Check the synopsis:

Death In Paradise is a fish-out-of-water story about a quintessential English cop posted to the Caribbean island of Saint-Marie. To anyone else it would be paradise, but for Detective Inspector Richard Poole (Miller) it's hell!

The island of Guadeloupe serves as the actual filming location for the fictional Saint-Marie.

    I am of French and Scottish decect but cannot carry off the accents and Danny John-Jules is obviously not native Caribbean

    @ESHO WOMAN-- I agree. I'm watching it now, and I find it entertaining. I'm looking forward to Series 2.

    I love this show. It is light hearted and illustrates that Carribean folks are not just ganja smoking gangsters. All the black people on this show are of Caribbean descent. Their accents are not fake.

    One word DREADFUL ! This show is terrible plotwise. And the faux carribean accents make me physically sick . Yuck .
