Really? There are loads of them. The columnist mentions 24 and there are tons of others, from The Sweeney to The Killing, just in cop shows alone. Look, I know that Death in Paradise is formulaic because it's intended to be but not every episodic drama has to be.
24 - Jack gets in situation, Jack gets out of situation, Jack gets into another situation for the cliff-hanger. Every week.

The Sweeney - Never really watch any of it but I guess...
Baddie does bad thing, gets caught by the end.

Can't comment on TK as never seen it.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm saying that to complain about it is stupid as it is not unique to DIP.
