Tim Key, Executive Producer of Death In Paradise said: "We're delighted to announce our amazing guest cast and particularly grateful to them all for making the journey to Guadeloupe during such a difficult year to be part of the show. Every episode features some amazing performances from a host of famous guests who were all a pleasure to work with and we can't wait for our viewers to try to work out which one of them dunnit!"
Filmed on the idyllic French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, the tenth series sees D.I. Neville Parker continue to get to grips with island life whilst attempting to unravel a series of challenging cases with the team. Some surprises for the new series have already been announced, including the return of fan-favourites Joséphine Jobert and Sara Martins but viewers can expect plenty more exciting things to come!
Renowned for its ingenious murder mysteries set against a beautiful Caribbean backdrop, Death In Paradise remains one of television's highest-rated dramas since launching in 2011. Series 10 is set to be one of the biggest and best yet.
