ABOUT THE SHOW

Lighthearted detective series

Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve a mysterious murder, quintessentially British cop Richard Poole is a total fish out of water.

Awaiting Richard is a ramshackle station and a very different type of policing. His new partner, DS Camille Bordey is instinctive, feisty and brilliant, and the rest of the team certainly have their own unique way of doing things.

Though Richard would never admit it, they make the perfect team with a new mind-boggling mystery to solve every episode. But will Richard ever come to see the beauty of his surroundings? Perhaps not, but he might one day loosen his tie…
