Ralf Little is returning as DI Neville Parker along with Josephine Jobert as DS Florence Cassell. While the castings have yet to be officially confirmed, it appears that Don Warrington, the show’s only remaining actor from the very first episode, will also be back as Commissioner Selwyn Patterson. 

Elizabeth Bourgine is also expected to return as Catherine Bordey. Plus, after making a big impression in series 10, Tahj Miles is likely to be back as Marlon Pryce.

No, Tobi has left the show. Tobi played JP for six years and bowed out in the final episode of the 10th series. JP’s last act was to save Marlon from prison. Marlon punched a suspect, but JP insisted to the Commissioner that it was him and Marlon walked free.

Will Ben Miller return?

It seems unlikely. Ben Miller did enjoy a cameo during the 10th series as DI Richard Poole. However, he’s not expected to return again.

Who’s guest starring?

The guest stars are yet to be announced. Series 10 saw a string of top names appearing including comedian Jason Manford and ex Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher.

What’s the plot of the new series?

Still under wraps at this stage. However, it will finally clear up what Neville said to Florence after she opened her door to him in the final moment of series 10. Will they finally become a couple in series 11? Or will Florence gently decline Neville’s advances? Or, will he fail even to tell her?!

Ralf Little has teased what might happen. Talking to Hello!, he said: “I think it could go either way as Neville’s come a long way, he’s a much stronger person than he was when he arrived on the island. He might have the bottle to go through with it. But then again, she’s an intimidatingly charming and beautiful woman who he worked really closely with and so I’m afraid, you’re just gonna have to wait and see. And if it’s any consolation, I’m going to have to wait and see as well!"
