Speaking about his 2015 role in paradise, episode 3 guest star Tyger Drew-Honey told the BBC: “I’m 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 my first TV drama project since finishing Outnumbered and very different from anything I’ve done before. Filming on the sunny shores of Guadeloupe will certainly make a change from those leafy London suburbs that I’ve been used to!”

Fans of the show will be glad to hear the BBC have now confirmed Death in Paradise will return for series 5 in 2016.

Where is Death in Paradise filmed?

Set on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie, this popular comedy crime-drama is filmed on the real world Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.

Saint Marie
