Watch Saturdays at 10pm August 6 - October 8, 2016 on WMHT-TV

Bringing a dose of sunshine back to the small screen, Death in Paradise returns for a third season of impossible murders on the beautiful Caribbean island of Saint Marie. This season opens with the shocking murder of DI Richard Poole, an event which heralds the arrival of new detective DI Humphrey Goodman, who is quite unlike his predecessor. Disorganised and gawky, Humphrey’s rather bumbling and accident-prone ways means he doesn’t make the greatest first impression on Camille, Fidel and Dwayne, who are battling their grief for their friend as well trying to catch his killer. All dishevelled British charm, but with a razor-sharp insight into crime solving, can Humphrey win the team round and prove he’s the man for the job?
