[quote=Sallysally;64244134]He wants a pay rise - double the number of flies or he does not appear

And I am really pleased too that there will be a third series. Can't see there will be too much mileage after that - or Ste Marie will become the murder capital of the Caribbean!
I suspect that the Camille and Richard story will be resolved one way or the other and then that will be that.

I am a Guardian reader, by the way, and I really don't understand the columnist who wrote the tosh above about it being rubbish. There is space in one's life for both The Killing and DiP. They are NOT mutually exclusive.[/QUOTE]

Another one here..I have read the Guardian at times in my life..tends to be the "i" I pick up these impoverished days .But why can't I enjoy Scandrama,Spiral,DiP,Ripper Street and Mentalbaldie?I like my crime in many a background!

Episodes are so formulaic, it's almost funny.
Show me any TV episodic drama that isn't "formualic" when you strip it down to the basics. So no, he doesn't have a point at all

My only problem with this week's ep is that the Caribbean is either 4 or 5 hours behind GMT so it would not have been (approx) 2:30pm in both places when that phone call was made.

The victim was left handed.
Same principle applies. Putting the phone in her right-hand was not any sort of proof that her murderer did not know her.

Well I'm not sure about pools, but she looks like she's chewing on a wasp when Richard looks at another attractive woman!

I missed the first series of this. Saw Ben on Sunday Brunch, when they showed a clip of the new series and it looked up my street.

We love it, my OH is in love with Camille obviously, her figure in those trousers! I love Ben's bumbling character and always melting in his suits! Love the other 2 policeman and did recognise the Cat from Red Dwarf!

And love the whole Caribbean feel of the programme, it's our favourite part of the world, so we just love this programme!

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.

Come on its fun when Richard says... "go and get everyone and we will meet in the bar" (etc)!

Exactly, it IS like the old Poirot or Miss Marple, but I would rather have that than someone turning up at the suspects house and barging in, the suspect "does a runner", the Police chase them, someone gets shot,handcuffs on and you may know who the suspect is, but not why, I love the fact he spells out the entire crime in one go,it is clever as everything has to fit into place, (unlike some cop shows).

It's a bit like the old Paul Temple cases when everyone turned up in the same room when Temple talked them through the case and revealed the murderer.

What a great show this is. I have watched all episodes from both series. I look forward all week for the next story. I will really miss it when this series ends.

One of the few programmes on lately without foul language, sex scenes and another bonus : no adverts.

I think Ben was channeling his inner-Richard a bit tonight. Homeopathy because it is hokum and rubbish you could just see Richard tut at that and pedestrians not having any order would bother him a lot.

Totally agreed with him about pedestrians. Was surprised he won all the rounds though the shoe laces one was a bit odd.

I prefer the "Richard" look is better than the look on room 101!

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.

No, the Sweeney was grittier than that. Sometimes the baddies got away.

One of the things I like about the Sweeney was they didn't always get the baddie!

Enjoyed Death in Paradise last week and it's always lovely to see Hannah Spearitt

Theoretically, as her charcter, Lily, ran a bike hire business on the island, she could make another guest experience in the next series. Which would be nice.

I hope so. Missed her since Primeval ended, didn't know she was going to be in this episode, it was a nice surprise
