Season 8 of ‘Death in Paradise’ brings more quirky island mysteries


On Saturday nights at 8 p.m., Detective Jack Mooney of “Death in Paradise” is really starting to get to know the people and places of Saint Marie – to a degree that surprises some of his colleagues.

But there’s little time for sightseeing, as there are some fiendishly clever murders to solve. From a local radio DJ murdered while live on air to a zookeeper killed by a poisonous dart, Jack and his team have their work cut out for them.

There’s a new face on the team, as energetic officer Ruby Patterson arrives with a unique take on crime fighting. Officer JP Hooper has his hands full trying to train her, not least because she’s the commissioner’s niece.

Meanwhile, DS Florence Cassell has found love. It’s clear how the charming Patrice has captured her heart. But as he begins to win over the rest of the team, a discovery during a case makes them all question their judgement.

Jack must lead the team through their personal ups and downs while using his unconventional methods to catch the killers; these are some of their most challenging cases yet.
