DI Humphrey Goodman is finally settled on the beautiful island of Saint Marie, but can’t help feeling that something‘s missing from his life. When Humphrey decides buying a boat is the answer to his problems, Dwayne correctly diagnoses a mid-life crisis – the real root of Humphrey’s malaise is a lack of love life.

Confident there’s a formula to finding love, Humphrey enlists the help of Florence, only to discover the complexities of dating are more confusing than any case he’s tried to crack. Humphrey’s deductive powers may not be much use on the singles scene but, back on the job, his considerable intellect and experience are tested to the full, as he faces some of Saint Marie’s most perplexing murders yet.

    At least you guys are treating him with respect. The rest of PBS is disgusting.

      You are obviously not watching the same PBS as I am. Every series is fantastic and most well done!

    Miss Fisher’s mysteries are the most well written and beautifully costumed show on television any country, any genre. I am from New Mexico, (not New and Not Mexico,). I watch this show with my grand daughters and we all love Miss Fisher. To end it at season 3 is totally unreasonable. Let’s get the gang back together and protest, write, blog, twitter or what ever to make them do more. I am a month from being 70, so I will write real letters. Jo White, USA.

      I agree.

      Are you the Jo White who put the Mooney family history on the Everything Cherokee website?

    Fishers mysteries, season 3 is over. Bummer. I am waiting for season 4. While I am waiting, how about a repeat of 1, 2, & 3. Doc. Martin, as Time Goes by, and Keeping up Appearance, do it. I would love to watch the repeats.

    Death in Paradise is my favorite mystery show. It is wonderful. All of the casts they’ve had on have been excellent. I am watching it on Netflix now. I hope none of them every leave and I will be sorry to see Danny John-Jules go also. The first two detective inspectors were also excellent. Great show. Keep it on the air.
