The island is celebrating its Day of the Dead, which literally lives up to its name when Daisy Anderson, organizer of a charity auction at the local yacht club, is murdered after sending a frantic message to her husband Finn. She had had a brief affair with club member Adam Warner, about which Finn knew, and was filing for divorce, as well as discovering a fraud perpetrated by club treasurer Charlotte Hamilton. However all three have alibis. Jack is mystified by the appearance of a butterfly which should be in hibernation on Daisy's body but it gives him a clue to solving her murder.

Did You Know?


When Daisy drives away from home at the beginning of the story, the front license plate on her convertible is from Hawaii, which is strange in and of itself, but when she arrives at the clubhouse, the rear license plate is completely different in state and number. See more »

Day of the Dead, classic Death in Paradise.
2 February 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Island Celebrations on it's Day of The Dead festival turn sour when beautiful Charity worker Daisy Anderson is found dead. DI Mooney is also faced with a problem, when Harry, the Shack's resident Lizard looks distinctly off colour.

Arguably the best episode of Series 7, this felt like classic Death in Paradise. First off, whoever was in charge of the visuals for the episode needs recognition, this was a visual feast, The Day of the Dead festival looked incredible, the costumes and props were fabulous, also the fashions in the episode looked so good. My issue in recent times has been with the originality of the material, this was definitely on point, a very clever mystery, and an outcome I didn't see coming, top notch writing.

I loved how the reaction around Harry, very much an integral part of the show, added some light relief, nobody cares about the death of a beautiful young woman, but an off colour Lizard, now that's tough. Ardal seems so settled in this role, I am so pleased to see him returning for the show's eighth series.
