A breath of fresh air.,
This review is from: Death in Paradise - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I had not watched any of series 1 nor the first 6 of series 2 but a friend who does not normally watch crime stories told me that he was hooked on it. I watched episode 7 of series 2 followed by episode 8. and instantly ordered series one. now going to order series 2.
Other people have described the series so well that I need not go into the same details again. I will just say what I like about it.
Here we have great whodunits without the detailed gruesome gore of the CSI, NCIS series. Everything is much lower key and there is more humour in a very gentle, understated way.
The characters are all very likeable. The growing rapport between Poole and the rest of the team is well done.
The final revealing of the culprit is in the typical English detective story format.
One final reason to enjoy, After weeks, indeed months of cloud and cold and rain you can enjoy the sun, even if only on the screen.
