This is the actor Ralf Little who, during season 9, took over from Ardal O’Hanlon after his departure. He now plays Neville Parker alongside Aude Legastelois who plays Madeleine Dumas. But will this new inspector choose to stay on the island of Sainte-Marie or will he prefer to return to Great Britain? You will have the answer in tonight’s episode titled Blind Witness.
But murders in paradise will she be entitled to a season 10? Fans of the detective series, rest assured that a tenth season has been ordered and it will also have eight episodes. However, due to the current global health crisis, filming, which was due to start in Guadeloupe in April 2020, had to be postponed. Initially, the new season was to arrive on British television in January 2021, but it seems inevitable that this date will also be delayed.
Since its launch, the series has shown solid audiences on France 2. Season 9 has thus gathered an average of 4.5 million viewers so far for an audience share above 16% for most episodes.
