UK dramas Death in Paradise & Call the Midwife are back on ABC Saturdays in early February.
Death in Paradise returns with Season 9.
Saturday, 6 February at 7.30pm on ABC
Detective Inspector Jack Mooney may have settled into life on the glorious Caribbean island of Saint Marie, but the murders keep coming. From an apparent serial killer on the loose on New Year’s Eve to an artist found poisoned in her studio, the cases are more baffling than ever. And an unexpected romantic encounter prompts some soul-searching for Jack.
With the news that Jack is leaving, the team are in need of a new DI, who arrives in the form of one Detective Inspector Neville Parker from Manchester. Which is lucky, because Neville’s a brilliant puzzle-solving detective with an incomparable knowledge and intellect. The only problem is, Neville is allergic to anything and everything and refuses to live outside his comfort zone. Which means the Caribbean is basically a living nightmare for him. He can see how Saint Marie is wonderful for those who love it, but it really doesn’t agree with him. For DI Neville Parker at least, paradise it is not…
Neville can’t complain for long though: he has some puzzling murders to solve. From a survival expert stabbed on a remote island to a woman killed behind two locked doors, Neville has his work cut out from the get-go. As do the rest of the team, as they try to make sense of their new boss…
