Chris Marshall to return for Death in Paradise spin-off series

Death in Paradise is launching a spin-off that will continue the story of Chris Marshall’s disorganized DI Humphrey Goodman after he returns to the UK.

Ardle played the lead role in the Caribbean-set BBC detective drama for three series between 2014 and 2017, being replaced by Ardle O’Hanlon.

Beyond Paradise will find out what happens to her character after she leaves Sunny St. Mary after falling in love with island tourist Martha Lloyd, played by Sally Bretton.

Now working in her fiancé’s hometown in the UK countryside, Goodman will be distracted by a “surprisingly high crime rate”, with a different case challenging him each week.

Filmed on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Death in Paradise has won over fans with its mix of escapism, engaging whodnits and plot twists since debuting in 2011 and currently stars Ralph Little.

The spin-off is a co-commissioned one between BBC One and Britbox International and will be produced by Red Planet Pictures, part of the Asacha Media Group.

Filming will begin on location in the UK later this year and further details, including casting, will be announced at an appropriate time.

Marshall said: “I had the best time playing Humphrey in Guadeloupe and while I was happy that he got his happy ending with Martha, I always wanted to know what happened next.

“So it’s a pleasure to be putting my torn jacket back on and seeing how life has changed for him in the UK.

“Working with Sally is a dream, and I can’t wait to continue the story of Humphrey and Martha and solve some seemingly impossible mysteries along the way.”

Tim Key, executive producer of Red Planet Pictures, said: “We always knew there were more stories to be told from Humphrey Goodman and that the brilliant Tony Jordans led the writing team, all of the Death in Paradise spirit, humor and flair for the brand. Bringing you joy. New, original series, we can’t wait to get started.

“While Humphrey has a knack for battling fiendishly clever puzzles, the biggest challenge is navigating his personal life and figuring out what goes beyond ‘Happy Ever After.

“We are delighted to be working with Chris and Sally again and create a little paradise in the UK.”
