tv recommendation: Death In Paradise

Death In Paradise is a british (BBC?) show about an english Detective Inspector being transferred to the fictional caribbean Island of Saint Marie where he and the other members of the local police force solve a murder every episode[1].
The show features one or more known face from british television every episode and is a delight to watch. Not that it is overly complicated, but the first two season feature Ben Miller as the main protagonist, and his portrayal of the bulletin board stiff upper lip british gentleman, who refuses to don an airy attire despite the new climate he now works in is a part of my spirit guide.
He gets killed and replaced by a new DI played by Kris Marshall, who’s chief officer goes into the direction of a brilliant but chaotic cop.
The best thing about the show is that it not only crushes it’s enemies[2], but features tropical landscapes which is relaxing somehow and it doesn’t matter wether one starts watching an episode from the beginning, every few minutes there is a summarization that brings the viewer up to speed.

It’s a great program to watch in winter.
