But as soon as she arrives on the island, their burgeoning romance is put to the test by an untimely murder. From a cricket club president murdered in the middle of the pitch, to a scientist found dead halfway up a volcano, there are more fiendishly difficult puzzles for the team to tackle.
Then seemingly unsolvable case takes Humphrey and the gang to London, in a special two-part story that introduces DI Jack Mooney played by Ardal O’Hanlon.
