I have watched these shows several times now and there seems always something else to discover. Very enjoyable, good value for money.
So when I saw that this series is based on a Caribbean island with a high murder rate. The 'hero' is a Detective Inspector on attachment from the Metropolitan Police. The remainder of the island Police force consists of, a Commissioner, a woman uniform sergeant for one episode only, a woman detective sergeant (the glamour) and two PCs. Their vehicle fleet consists of a clapped out Land Rover and a motorcycle and sidecar. The DI is very stiff, awkward with no people skills and very very English. I was not filled with confidence.
A ridiculous scenario. But it works on so many levels. The murders and motives are good. It's tongue in cheek and hugely entertaining and every cast member gives a great performance. A feel good series highly recommended.
I therefore didn't watch series 1. I have to confess, it was my parents who got me into the programme during series 2. I didn't expect to like it but it is great! So based on that, my wife and I bought series 1 on DVD.
Ben Miller and Sara Martins are just brilliant, but so are the supporting cast. It really is the characters that make this series, but the storylines themselves are clever, entertaining and funny.
Having seen series 2 first, I would have to say that it is better than series 1, but that's not to take anything away from this release. I loved every episode, and it is great to see Miller/Martins relationship develop throughout the series. There is great chemistry between them and it makes the series very watchable.
Perfect to watch on a Sunday night.
What a mistake that was.
By accident, I watched the first episode of series 2, and before the end credits, I had logged into Amazon and bought the first series DVD. This is a cracker of a show, with magnificent locations, good performances from all the main characters, and good liberal doses of humour salted throughout the scripts. Its rare a show will grab me as this one has, but my partner and I sat through the entire series in one sitting, only stopping to order a takeaway!. Although Ben Miller is credited with being the "star", this is really a great ensemble show, where even a lizard gets in on the act.
Simply put, if you like a show with humour, and a few murders thrown in to boot, then Death in Paradise is the show for you.
Here we have great mysteries in the style of Agatha Christie with the usual gathering of all suspects and the revalation of the guilty party.
We also have great locations and sun.(just what one needs in this weather) but best of all we have great characters. and lots of gentle and subtle humour.
The interaction between the the characters is a joy to watch and the developing relationships add to the overall feeling of satisfaction.
I can't wait for series three to be on the box.
I don't know how I came to miss the series on TV originally. I caught one of the second series on TV and liked it and bought this DVD of the first series.
I find Richard as a DCI rather irritating with his attitude to the Island life. Will persevere and do enjoy it so far.
