Death in Paradise has never had a festive special before, but this year as part of its 10th birthday celebrations the BBC has given the show one. And it promises to be a Christmas TV cracker!

The 90-minute special amazingly sees the long-awaited return of Danny John-Jules as Officer Dwayne Myers. Plus the regular cast, including Ralf Little as DI Neville Parker and Joséphine Jobert as Florence, return.

The plot sees Neville preparing to head home to see his family, but all that changes when a billionaire shipping magnate dies in strange circumstances. Things get even weirder when a London minicab driver gets an ominous message in a Christmas card. Can Neville and his team crack the case?
