Death In Paradise | Series 13 Preview (BBC One)

We take a trip down memory lane as commissioner Selwyn Patterson celebrates 50 years of police service at the Yacht Club…but the day takes a turn when he is shot and rushed to hospital.

Even more shockingly, we’ve seen whodunnit… or have we? The team put their own emotions aside and do everything they can to track down the man who seemingly shot Selwyn.

But as they learn more about the assailant, the team are left perplexed; the man has no connection to Selwyn whatsoever. So why try and kill him? The team start to uncover a multitude of secrets and lies at the Yacht Club – could one of Selwyn’s dear friends be responsible for his shooting?

Or what about a blast from the past, reformed yacht thief Marlon Collins, who ironically now manages the Yacht club! When Neville finally puts the pieces of the puzzle together, it transpires that nothing has been as it appears in this case…

Elsewhere, across the rest of the series, Marlon confronts his future, Naomi lets loose to double date with Darlene, and Catherine finds herself embroiled in a murder case when an old friend becomes a suspect.

New and returning faces arrive on Saint Marie, and Neville faces his biggest decision yet. Will our hapless detective finally get his happy ever after? There’s also a deadly game of bingo, a poisoning at a cookery competition, death during a blackout, and a mystifying murder in a lift.
