Death in Paradise (BBC)

Death in Paradise

Another reason I haven’t been posting lately is because I’ve been busy enjoying Death in Paradise. This murder mystery is more my style (unlike DCI Banks). Not nearly as graphic as DCI Banks, this show presents a good mystery with a little humor. I will admit, at first, I didn’t like the show. I watched it simply because it was clean and I needed something to watch. However, after several episodes, I found myself becoming attached to the characters. (I will say, that this show earned a spot on my “favorites” list with the arrival of the second detective inspector in season 3. He brought a level of levity to the show that wasn’t present before.)

I will say Death in Paradise has a very strong cast, especially in the first several seasons (it is always hard when some of your favorite’s leave the show). I enjoy watching it for the characters. And for those of you who like strong female leads, you will enjoy the character Camille Bordey, an outspoken woman whose not afraid to stand up for herself or others, and yet remains a caring and compassionate.
