I was a first time viewer this week after hearing good reviews and enjoyed it. There was more humour than I expected there to be.

Are we absolutely sure that Richard fancies Camille?

He has shown no outward sign of interest towards her.
But don't forget the episodes are the wrong way around, I think the last one was supposed to be the 1st of the new series so the one shown then with the blind date at the end and his looking back and Camille looking disappointed, should have been last Tuesdays.

I didn't see the first series, but I've read up on it and more or less know what's going on. Mostly I find that it's just enjoyably silly, but having had three people in my life affected by cancer since the middle of last year, I'll admit to being annoyed by the one with the nun in it who was supposed to be suffering from the disease. I don't think there's much chance she could've hidden the fact from the others in the convent that she'd been going through chemo cycles because it had returned - she would have been too ill from the treatment to hide it. As for his deduction that she had a bald head under her nun-gear when she was still sporting a pair of very visibly healthy eyebrows, well...

On the whole, though, it's a bit of escapist daftness. I like the bit where he insists on gathering everbody together for an Agatha Christie-style reveal at the end. That must be just how they do it in London

Why would they be changed?

I don't know , but it was very obvious that the latest episode should have been shown first . I can only think that there might have been a similar murder in real life at the same time.

Not sure, but below is a post saying what happened, so I'm going by them:
[quote=cylon6;63955188]I enjoyed last night's episode. You can see that it was really episode 1 of this new series. Richard moaning about the heat and getting off the island, the first glimpse of Richard having a slight interest in Camille, Fidel being put forward for the Sergeant exams.

Robert Thorogood said they changed the order around and moved the first episode to episode 4 and it showed.[/QUOTE

I don't think in Camille's case it's all that repressed.
LOL I totally agree

Looking forward to it.

I would really like to know why they decided to change the order around. I have massively enjoyed all of the episodes so far as individual stories, but last week's definitely felt like it should have been the first episode.

Reminder for all about tonight's episode...

Death in Paradise
Season 2 Episode 5 of 8
Camille's best friend, a singer on a Caribbean party boat, collapses on stage during a night of music and cocktails. After she dies in the policewoman's arms, the officers question the vessel's staff and on-board tourists in an effort to get to the bottom of her mysterious demise. Photographs taken on the evening offer a fuller picture of what took place, but could the answer lie in the vocalist's pre-show routine? Meanwhile, DI Poole comforts a grieving Camille, but it soon becomes clear that sensitivity is not his strong suit. Ben Miller and Sara Martins star, with guest appearances from singer Jamelia, Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and Amanda Mealing (ex-Holby City)

Does anyone know the name of the song they were playing at the start of the episode? I first heard it at the end of Beetlejuice and I've always liked it.

Good evening.

I'm afraid I don't know what the track is called, although I recognise it too.

I thought it must be a switches glass and the shot was supplied by him. When he came in for his knifes. I thought that throwaway bit must have been for something

I thought the flowers at the end were a nice touch (both the beach scenes were sweet).

Glad it's back on form, even got my Hubby enjoying it (he spent the last series in his shed).
