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.
One of the finest TV dramas of 2004. Beautifully written by William Ivory, great acting by Paul Nicholls, the outstanding Liz White and company. Using a similar idea to Clocking Off, in which several characters' personal stories are played out over the weeks, this Nottingham-based drama is bound to get the odd Bafta at the next ceremony. The finale may have pushed every emotional button, even down to featuring a box of cute puppies, but despite the obvious manipulation of the viewer, it was heartbreaking. A second series can't come soon enough. If you haven't seen it, watching it on DVD may be a benefit as the various threads are tied together by episode six. A must see. 10/10
