First time I have ever watched this and all I have stuck in my head is Broken Sword. It's as if the writers played it and wanted to make their own twist, Miller the English version of George Stobbart with the witty put downs and the female lead a rip of Nico Collard....probably just me.

I don't think it was a great episode, but still enjoyed it. I liked the confusion at the end. But of course there should be no romance, unless it is the very last episode of the very last series. Same with Miranda and Gary, IMO.

Enjoyed that, nice welcome back, just what the doctor needed, cheered me up no end, I wondered how the murder was commited

Loved the bit about the blind date at the end, hehehe

Nice to see Tom Ward in something other than Silent Witness. So that's two new programmes for him this year Dr Who and now this. Has he left Silent Witness without having a romp with Nikki??

Any illusion of Paradise was shattered, when depending on where was the sun in relation to the camera whilst they were filming at the mill, there could be seen, thousands of small flies in the air.

He has left Silent Witness. I don't think we're going to see him go, just a reference at the start of the series which is starting shortly.

Dr Who was on last year, he said, pedantically.


There's an element of Jonathan Creek in the reveal. But that's fine by me. Both shows are great fun.

I think this is just lovely light entertainment. Nothing taxing, nothing serious (other than a very nuanced reference to slavery and its consequences), lovely scenery, nice people, reasonable story.

But best of all, the lizard is back and with an enhanced role!!

Yes, it's good to see the new series of Bergerac but where's Charlie Hungerford gone?

We may have cheered slightly when the lizard appeared

Lovely stuff, exactly what I want to watch on a cold winter's night winding down after work

Absolutely.

Guadeloupe looks gorgeous (even with the flies!).

Good fun, guessed there was a tunnel, didn't have a clue about the rest of it though. Slow and steady. by the end of the series, I should be able to get the killer straight away

It was a great detective story reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and the character relationships are all well handled especially the glances in the background or the asides. There are some good actors in this and well directed and edited.

THINKS...

Scene 1, act 1:
Saga, smiling, scratches herself absent mindedly...
Suddenly, the door crashes open.
"Scuse Dottore", exclaims Catarella
"Dottore?", questions Catarella
"Dottore!!!!", exclaims Catarella and faints
Saga, smiling, continues scratching herself absent mindedly...

K
Good one

i'm not sure it was reminiscent of Sherlock Homes, i thought it was more like Poirot with the way everyone was gathered together for the reveal (tonight was the first one i've seen, do they do that every week?)

Although that is accodingly to Wiki, and no real knowledge on my part, so don't take that as 100%

The girl who plays Camille really is ridiculously beautiful
The girl who played the murder victim's young girlfriend was rather nice too

I really enjoy this show but the bit I love the most is the explanations at the end. So clever.

It's not, it's filmed in Guadeloupe (and yes I did need to google to get the correct spelling ), it's an overseas region of France
You are right, so you can take it as 100%! When I lived in France friends went there on holidays and didn't even need to bring a passport. It's counted as part of France (however as a result of terrorism you might need a passport now).

Am I the only one who thinks Fidel is cute?

Columbo always did this as well, as did the first two Pink Panther films. It's a classic Cluedo summing up.

They do it ever week.

Thought it was a bit fluffy, but the ending did catch me out and I felt sorry for the brother and sister at the end. I thought the guy who played the killer brother was nice on the eye

And how is Camille's mother so young looking!!!
