Filming of Death in Paradise series nine is underway in Guadeloupe with Ardal O’Hanlon reprising his role as lead detective DI Jack Mooney.
Tobi Bakare (Officer JP Hooper), Shyko Amos (Officer Ruby Patterson), Don Warrington (Commissioner Selwyn Patterson) and Elizabeth Bourgine (Catherine Bordey) also return alongside new series regular Aude Legastelois (DS Madeleine Dumas).
Produced by Red Planet Pictures and filmed on the beautiful French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, the award-winning drama will continue to keep audiences guessing with mind-boggling puzzles, cunningly clever plot twists and a star-studded array of guest cast.
Series nine will see the Honoré Police team get to know their new DS, Madeleine, while a surprise kiss catches Jack off guard...
