Episode 5 of this 6th season of Death In Paradise, which airs on BBC-1 on Thursday 2 February at 9.00pm is the first episode of a two-part special which sees the team leave the idyllic Caribbean Shores and head to London in pursuit of suspects connected to a murder committed on Saint Marie.
When the captain of a boat, Tom Lewis, fails to return home after the night of a storm, Humphrey and the team conduct a search party. When they find Tom’s body on his boat a mile out to sea, the radar equipment proving that no other vessel came near the boat all night, all evidence points towards him being a tragic casualty of the storm.
But Humphrey is convinced there’s more to it. Why would an experienced sailor sail out in the middle of a storm? As Tom and his partner have no connections to the island, apart from to the holidaymakers who chartered his boat for the week, Humphrey struggles to solve this apparently motiveless murder.
The discovery of a stray cufflink provides the team with the vital lead they need, pointing them towards a banking company back in London. With Saint Marie’s police reputation on the line and with the Commissioner’s permission, Humphrey, Florence and Dwayne head to London, where they team up with DI Jack Mooney in order to track down the murderer.
Meanwhile Dwayne comes face to face with his estranged father and Humphrey must come to terms with Martha’s recent departure from the island.
