Storyline

English policeman Charlie Hulme is found murdered in the locked panic room of Lord and Lady Salcombe on the Caribbean island of Sainte-Marie. Fellow Brit,uptight inspector Richard Poole,is sent to investigate and is quickly exasperated by the leisurely pace of island life,particularly his native team's working methods. Initially neither of the Salcombes own to knowing Hulme until Sarah,Lady Salcombe,admits he was her lover and was investigating her husband,James, for people-smuggling. After James is also killed Poole tracks down the mystery woman seen at the house and cracks the case. However,with his luggage still in England and a good cup of tea nowhere to be found,he is desperate to return home to cold,rainy London. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

It's explained in the first episode that the island of Saint Marie is a former French overseas territory that was transferred to the British in the 1970s. This gives a basis for having a British Police officer working on the island. However, the police insignia still clearly show the French flag, the vehicles are all left-hand drive, and the car number plates all show the 'F' Euro symbol for France along with the département number for the French Overseas Department of Guadaloupe. If the island is now British, then it's highly unlikely it would still have French-registered cars. British overseas territories are not always treated as part of the UK, unlike French overseas départements, which are effectively just another part of France. In addition, the (nominally-British) police on Saint Marie sent evidence of the homicide to labs on Guadeloupe, which IS a French overseas territory; it's unlikely the British Police of Saint Marie would utilize resources of an extension of the French police.

A strong introduction to the series.
6 February 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I had forgotten just how brilliant this show was when it debuted back in 2011, the sun shone brighter, the writing was tighter, the actors took it more seriously.... well ok, maybe not the first one, but the show had a slightly less frivolous attitude, it was perhaps taken a little more seriously then it is now.

One thing I always remember was how good Lenora Crichlow was, I can't truly think of anyone that's bettered her performance since, she took the role very seriously, and was somehow believable as Lily, a shame her character was not a regular.

I liked Ben Miller, his character's attempt to be a straight laced Brit in The Caribbean made for some wonderfully entertaining viewing. I'm finding I miss Ben in the show somewhat.

A great start.
