Scotland Yard DI Richard Poole is sent to the Caribbean island of Sainte Marie to solve a fellow policeman's murder. Having done so, he finds himself seconded to the local police force as the dead man's replacement. Poole proves to be a brilliant detective, solving several complex murders. He's not quite suited to either the pace of life on the island or the heat and sand, neither of which he likes very much. He also doesn't like seafood. That aside, the place is just great. In later series, other English and Irish police officers head the investigative team, namely Humphrey Goodman, Jack Mooney, and Neville Parker.

Did You Know?
The new DI Neville Parker (who arrives on the island to replace DI Jack Mooney toward the end of Season 9) is played by Ralf Little. The interesting thing here is that Ralf Little first appeared on the show in Season 2 as a completely different generic character named Will Teague, while Richard Poole was the DI of the island Police Force.
