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

It's light hearted and laid back
3 April 2013 | by jonnithomasSee all my reviews

well the stereotypes are pleasant and the program is very easy to watch.

it's set in a lovely part of the world and the characters are well played.

there's nothing taxing about this program but it's a very pleasant hour with your feet up watching TV.

the Englishman abroad that hates the sun and misses the rain is such a stuffed shirt role and it should be irritating as it is such an unrealistic stereotype but somehow all the characters work well together and it just works.

it's like your comfortable slippers and the cardigan with a hole in it that you just can't throw away.
