Returning to the small screen for series 4 in early 2015, Death in Paradise continues to add to and already impressive cast list. Filming has begun with many guest stars already destined for a bit of fun on the crime-ridden island of Saint Marie including Downton Abbey‘s Amy Nuttall, Call the Midwife‘s Leo Staar, Outnumbered‘s Tyger Drew Honey and Broadchurch‘s Will Mellor. Added next to the continually growing cast list were a couple of soap stars, Eastenders‘ Hetti Bywater along with Coronation Street‘s Natalie Gumede. Think that’s it? Not even close. The show’s executive producer Tim Key has just added Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter), Neil Morrissey Men Behaving Badly, Line of Duty, Me & Mrs. Jones), Sally Phillips Miranda, Veep), Jo Absolom (Eastenders, Doc Martin), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and Downton Abbey‘s James Fox.
The fourth series of Death in Paradise will again follow DI Humphry Goodman (Kris Marshall), Saint Marie’s new detective who arrived following the murder of DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) at the start of series three. Series 4 will see Goodman begin to struggle with his feelings for Camile (Sara Martins) while Dwayne (Danny John-Jules) is left to hold the fort when Fidel (Gary Carr) gets a job on a neighboring island. Series 4 will transmit on BBC1 in early 2015 with a Spring 2015 broadcast date on public television to follow.
