Death in Paradise has become something of a phenomenon since it was first broadcast in 2011. Here’s how to watch Death in Paradise online anywhere in the world.

With its catchy theme tune, baffling mysteries and wonderful setting in fictional Saint Marie, Death in Paradise continues to be a huge hit to this day.

Ben Miller played the show’s original detective, Richard Poole, who worked alongside Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) (opens in new tab) and Officer Dwane Myers (Danny John-Jules) (opens in new tab).

Kris Marshall then joined from series three as the show’s leading man, DI Humphrey Goodman. He teamed up first with Camille Bordey and later Florence Cassell (Josephine Jobert). Following Kris Marshall, Ardal O’Hanlon took over detective duties on Saint Marie in 2017 as DI Jack Mooney. While series nine saw Ralf Little join halfway through as DI Neville Parker. A 10th series is currently being filmed, with Ralf Little starring, and is likely to be on the BBC in 2021.
