Alexander Vlahos, Samantha Bond, Nell Hudson, Jade Anouka, Samuel West and Javone Prince also star in BBC One’s award-winning murder mystery hit, Death In Paradise.
Series nine of BBC One’s smash hit crime drama, Death in Paradise, welcomes a raft of acting talent alongside series regulars Ardal O’Hanlon, Aude Legastelois, Tobi Bakare, Shyko Amos, Elizabeth Bourgine and Don Warrington - as well as new lead detective, Ralf Little. The star-studded series will return to BBC One early next year.
Produced by Red Planet Pictures the upcoming series will showcase a wealth of guest stars including Steve Pemberton (Inside No.9), Nina Wadia (EastEnders), Javone Prince (PhoneShop), Jade Anouka (Cleaning Up), Adrian Edmondson (The Young Ones), Alexander Vlahos (Versailles), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Samuel West (Mr Selfridge) and Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey).
Renowned for its clever murder mysteries against an idyllic Caribbean backdrop, Death In Paradise remains one of television’s highest-rated dramas since launching in 2011 and the tenth series will go into production in 2020.
The award-winning series will also see EastEnders star, Nina Wadia join for not one, but several episodes in a guest role.
Nina Wadia says: “It’s been wonderful playing Anna, who in having to start her life over, rediscovers herself whilst unexpectedly finding romance on the island! I laughed my way through it all; how could I not with that fantastic cast?”
Steve Pemberton says: “Death In Paradise is such a well-loved and established show and it was a pleasure to be part of series nine. The cast and crew were brilliant and with the bonus of filming in Guadeloupe with my old pal Ralf, it was an opportunity that I couldn’t miss.”
Alexander Vlahos says: “I’m thrilled to have been invited to be part of this wonderful series. I had an absolutely joyous time on the island, working with Ardal and the rest of the team. I can’t wait to see the episode!”
Filmed on the picturesque French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, this series will feature new intriguing puzzles for the team to solve including a mysterious masked attacker who strikes twice at a family rum distillery and a survival camp trip gone wrong!
