Storyline

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 another British DI heads the investigative team, followed by an Irish DI and later again another British DI. Written by garykmcd

User Reviews

Humorous and different kind of detective series
14 May 2013 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

It is on in 2013. It has no episode titles.

Ben Miller/DI Richard Poole is very funny. He looks serious, does his job, is transferred out of London and sent to this island to become a supervisor over other police.

He solves the crimes in distinct funny way. At the end of the program he has all the people like Poirot gather together in one place. All the people that had a reason to commit the crime. He puts on a one man show and puts the pieces together of the crime and solves it.

The good features about this series, there is no sex, no swearing, good music and nice clean cut characters. Sarah Martin/Camille has a crush on DI Poole. The show has light hearted fun and a lizard that lives in Poole's cottage. It started that he cannot stand the lizard but now he considers the lizard his friend and named him Harry.

DI Poole is kind of stand-offish. He does not show much emotion but he works well with his police crew and respects them all. CPTV is running the series.
