Currently in its first season on BBC One, the Caribbean-set crime drama Death in Paradise follows a detective inspector who is assigned to investigate a murder on the island of Saint-Marie. While it may sound like paradise for some, DI Richard Poole, played by Ben Miller, hates the sun, sea and sand, making the quintessential British cop feel like a fish out of water. His new partner is the feisty and instinctive Camille Bordey, played by Sara Martins.
Miller and Martins' on-screen chemistry plays out as they solve a new crime in each episode. Off-screen, the pair kept cracking each other up as our cameras rolled for this video interview. The stars sat down with World Screen Weekly to talk about how the show differs from a traditional detective drama and what it was like filming in paradise.
The series, launched at MIPCOM, is part of a growing slate of high-quality drama that BBC Worldwide has on its roster. Death in Paradise is produced by Red Planet Pictures and Atlantique Productions in association with BBC Worldwide and Kudos Film and Television for BBC One and France Télévisions with support from the region of Guadeloupe. It marks the first-ever drama collaboration between BBC and France Télévisions as well.
