With filming underway for the hotly-anticipated fourth series of Death in Paradise for BBC One, it has been announced today that the stellar line-up of guest stars will include comedy actor and presenter Tyger Drew-Honey, Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Natalie Gumede and Downton Abbey star Amy Nuttall.
Filmed on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, the sun-soaked drama starring Kris Marshall has gone from strength to strength over the past three series pulling in an average consolidated figure of almost 8.5 million viewers to cement its position as one of BBC One’s highest rating midweek dramas.
Commenting on his role in the series, Tyger Drew-Honey said: “I am delighted to be a part of such a successful and original show and I can’t wait to work with the fantastic cast and crew. Death in Paradise is very different from anything I’ve done before so it is the perfect choice as my first TV drama project since finishing Outnumbered. Filming on the sunny shores of Guadeloupe will certainly make a change from those leafy London suburbs that I’ve been used to!”
As the series returns, the endearingly clumsy but brilliant DI Humphrey Goodman (Marshall) is struggling to contain his growing feelings for DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) who in turn finds herself battling the dating scene all thanks to her well meaning mother.
Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) is striving to cope as he is left holding the fort following the departure of Sergeant Fidel Best (Gary Carr), who has left Saint Marie for a new job on a neighbouring island.
However, Comm. Selwyn Patterson (Don Warrington) is keen to step up and exercise his investigative muscles once again, much to Dwayne’s frustration! The police department also welcomes new recruit, Sergeant Florence Cassell played by popular French actress Josephine Jobert (Sous Le Soleil de Saint-Tropez).
