Oh, my; the British! Let's take a fastidious, dapper fellow who demands order, cleanliness, routine, and a proper cup of tea, then transplant him to the most laid back, sandy, lizard infested, tropical island we can find. D.I. Poole works alongside a group of islanders in shorts and short sleeves in his three-piece suit, properly knotted tie, black socks and wingtips--and yes, he does suffer heat stroke at least once. In case that isn't enough conflict, the writers throw in that the only place to get that cuppa is from a French woman who detests him. Sigh. Oh, and then there are murders to solve! Lovely nod to Agatha Christie as Poole gathers everyone to watch his big reveal as he names the murderer. Some laugh out loud moments, lots of smirking at fastidiousness, and more smiles per episode than a sitcom.

Remind me of Hercule Poirot's investigations and singular way to disclose the murderer's identity. Great series, worth watching.

The characters grew on me
The 'who-done-it' stories are cleverish.
And the scenery reminds me of places I want to be.

Enjoyable series, filmed in paradise--really, the place is gorgeous! Ben Miller is absolutely priceless as D.I. Poole and his assistants are all delightful to watch--such cute accents. A few very smart twists and turns, some quite surprising ends, a bunch of excellent actors, the most beautiful scenery in the planet, plus the cutest gecko ever! One can't possibly go wrong with all that, can one? Looking very much forward to Season Two.
