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.
The series focused on various murders in the fictional suburban English town of Middleford. The crimes are solved by two female police detectives, Inspector Kate Ashurst and Sergeant Emma Scribbins, aka "Ash and Scribbs".
We watched the first four seasons on Netflix, and became hooked on what is a really great series -- so much so, that we purchased a region-free DVD player and ordered the Season 5 and 'Family Portrait' TV movie DVD's from Australia.
Why the Australian network cancelled this series is beyond us. From the reviews, and the ratings, it is clear that this is an immensely popular show. Someone in network Programming is asleep at the wheel in this case. But, we've seen this before, from the original 'Star Trek', to 'Last Man Standing', 'Timeless', and a host of other great shows that were cancelled way before their time. (Maybe Netflix could order up new episodes of Doctor Blake, who knows?)
If you're considering a series to watch, we highly recommend this one!
