A brilliant new detective, more mystifying murders
The new season heralds the arrival of new detective DI Humphrey Goodman, who is quite unlike his predecessor. Watch Death in Paradise on its new night Thursdays at 10pm on WOSU TV.
Disorganised and gawky, Humphrey’s rather bumbling and accident-prone ways means he doesn’t make the greatest first impression on Camille, Fidel and Dwayne, who are battling their grief for their friend as well trying to catch his killer. All dishevelled British charm, but with a razor-sharp insight into crime solving, can Humphrey win the team round and prove he’s the man for the job?
