In July, cameras began rolling on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe for the tenth anniversary series of Death In Paradise, making it one of the first BBC single camera dramas to start filming since (the first) lockdown.
The BBC have announced that joining the cast for the tenth series of the drama are Shalisha James-Davi, Jason Manford and Patrick Robinson. More information about their characters will be revealed in due course.
Returning to the sun-soaked island to reprise their roles are Ralf Little as D.I. Neville Parker, Don Warrington as Commissioner Selwyn Patterson, Tobi Bakare as D.S. JP Hooper and Elizabeth Bourgine as Mayor Catherine Bordey.
Speaking about the new series in July, Executive Producer, Tim Key, said: “We are delighted to be able to start filming and can’t wait to celebrate our tenth series with our audience. It’s a joy to be working with Josephine Jobert again and we think the viewers will love watching her trying to get to grips with Neville. And we are very happy to welcome Tahj Miles to the show. Marlon is going to make real waves once he arrives in Saint Marie. We’ve got some real treats for our long-term viewers as the series progresses - including some major surprises and the possibility of another returning face or two. We are determined to make this our biggest and best series yet and can’t wait to take our viewers back to Saint Marie in 2021.”
