A British inspector is transferred to Saint-Marie's police department, but he hates the sun, sea, and sand. The series follow his investigations into murders on the island. Later series see another British DI head the investigative team.
I looked forward to watching this as a big WWII fan, but the acting was truly dreadful. This series could be used as the perfect example of uneven acting. Actors go from happy to explosively angry in less than a sentence. I don't know if it is the fault of the actors or the director, but it is bad enough to render the whole series truly laughable. Hogan's Heroes was TRYING to be funny. I'm sure these folks were not.
Another problem is that actors disappear from the series without any explanation.
I've watched a tremendous amount of British television and this series is an embarrassment to the industry, I'm sure.
I went back to look. Suzanna Hamilton who played Matty in the first series was probably the worst of the acting and the best example of the good to bad mood swings. Deary me, she could get violently mad over nothing!
Another example was the romance between Luc and Emily in the third series. Lordy, if I only had a dollar for every time they fought angrily and then made up, I wouldn't be here writing this....
