Season 8 of Death in Paradise begins on ABC in a week’s time.

This season will include new cast members Aude Legastelois and Shyko Amos. These episodes premiered in the UK in January 2019.

Detective Jack Mooney (Ardal O’Hanlon) is really starting to get to know the people and places of Saint Marie – to a degree that surprises some of his colleagues. But there’s little time for sightseeing, as there are some fiendishly clever murders to solve. From a local radio DJ murdered while live on air to a zookeeper killed by a poisonous dart, Jack and his team have their work cut out.

There’s a new face on the team, as energetic officer Ruby Patterson (Shyko Amos) arrives with a unique take on crime fighting. Officer JP Hooper(Tobi Bakare) has his hands full trying to train her, not least because she’s Commissioner Selwyn Patterson’s (Don Warrington) niece. Meanwhile, DS Florence Cassell (Joséphine Jobert) has found love. It’s clear how the charming Patrice (Leemore Marrett Jr) has captured her heart. But as he begins to win over the rest of the team, a discovery during a case makes them all question their judgement.

Jack must lead the team through their personal ups and downs while using his unconventional methods to catch the killers; these are some of their most challenging cases yet.

In tonight’s episode, when a passenger is stabbed on the express bus to Honore, Detective Jack Mooney and his team are baffled. No-one left their seat, so how on earth did they commit murder?

7:30pm Saturday April 4 on ABC.
