Light, amusing, retro detective series set in the Caribbean,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death in Paradise - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a lighthearted and doubtless highly unrealistic detective series set in the Carribean. The backdrop provides beautiful scenery and is an excuse for following some very Agatha Christie like "collect everyone in the drawing room - the butler did it" denouments. It loses it's 5th star for my slight awkwardness at the smart people being white(ish) and the amusing help being black. Nevertheless the characters are well portrayed and entertainingly typecast - an uptight British Detective Inspector, a pretty and smart half-French local woman Detective Sergeant one keen and one more laid back local policemen.
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.
