I don't know about that but she may have appeared on British tv before
In 2001 she appeared in an episode of a French version of Maigret, some episodes of which have been shown on BBC4.
BTW is Inspector Poole aware that the Commissioner conned him into staying on the island??
Totally! The Commissioner told him his old job was still open but only for two hours when he had known about it for some time, and Richard said that to him. Then he lied about having a mobile signal when Richard was trying to find one so he could phone. Then, once it was too late, Richard complained and the Commissioner told him he could submit a written complaint....to him, the Commissioner!!
So yes, he knows he's been had!
