Here’s an article with more information about Death in Paradise. Looks like the tweets were right, also James Murray will join Ben Miller and Hannah on the set. The series will be shown early 2013 on BBC1.
As filming in the Caribbean continues for the second series of BBC One and Red Planet Pictures’ hit drama Death in Paradise, lead actor Ben Miller (Primeval, Armstrong & Miller) is joined by even more first-class guest artists for the new series.
The Office and Shaun of the Dead star, Lucy Davis, has recently joined the continuing list of quality guest stars in the drama’s second series, along with Gavin & Stacey front man, Mathew Horne and Primeval actress, Hannah Spearritt. Other home grown talent to join the island-set series include James Fleet (Little Dorrit), Lucien Laviscount (Waterloo Road), Neil Pearson (All The Small Things), Ralf Little (The Royle Family), Shaun Parkes (The Mummy Returns), James Murray (Primeval), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) and Cherie Lunghi (Secret Diary of a Call Girl).
Series regulars, Sara Martins (Little White Lies), Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf), Don Warrington (New Street Law) and Gary Carr (The Duchess), are also joined by singer-songwriter Jamelia, Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels), Stephanie Beacham (Trollied) and Gemma Jones (Spooks).
Thrilled at her role in the exotic series, Lucy Davis said: “It’s great to be working with such a fantastic cast against the beautiful backdrop of Guadeloupe. Being filmed on location really offers a sense of authenticity and adds to the quirky comedy, so it’s been brilliant to experience first-hand.”
The new series sees Miller reprise his role as quintessential English detective, DI Richard Poole; a detective who is not so keen on sun, sea and sand but has found himself living and working on the paradise island of most people’s dreams.
The witty and intriguing series is currently being filmed on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe and will return to BBC One for a much anticipated second series early next year.
