What will happen in Death in Paradise season 7?
Death in Paradise will be back with more of the same: murder most foul on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie.
This time Mooney will be joining the show’s regulars to take on a new series of grisly cases in the deceptively idyllic paradise.
Mooney will be trying to adjust to island life as he solves crimes.
Meanwhile, Dwayne Myers (played by Danny John-Jules) is set to be meeting his match and JP Hooper (Tobi Bakare) will encounter a blast from the past.
According to a synopsis for episode one: “DI Jack Mooney and the team are left puzzled when Diane Smith, fiancée of hotel billionaire Philip Marston, is found dead the day before her lavish wedding.
“All evidence points towards suicide, but Jack is convinced there’s more to this case than meets the eye and turns his attentions to her family-to-be.
“With the victims’ room locked from the inside and all suspects in different locations around the hotel, how could any of them have committed murder?
“Puzzled by a single painted nail on the victim’s hand, Jack is determined to prove foul play, despite the Commissioner insisting on closing the case.
“With a distinct lack of physical evidence, the team have a tough task on their hands. Meanwhile, Jack discovers a local island delicacy whilst his daughter Siobhan has a tough decision to make. Elsewhere, Dwayne finds himself in hot water with former flame, Audrey.”
