Tamzin Outhwaite (Ridley Road) Nicholas Bailey (Sally4Ever), Jason Done (Waterloo Road), Ben Onwuke (Safe) and Ben Starr (Jamestown) join Death In Paradise series regulars Ralf Little (D.I Neville Parker), Joséphine Jobert (DS Florence Cassell), Don Warrington (Selwyn Patterson), Élizabeth Bourgine (Catherine Bordey) Tahj Miles (Marlon Pryce) and brand new Saint Marie officer Naomi Thomas, played by Shantol Jackson.
Further guest star names below.
The BBC One smash-hit crime drama continues to weave its unique tapestry of comedy and drama, bringing joy to audiences old and new. The end of series 10 saw Neville on the verge of telling Florence how he really feels about her, and viewers will discover what happens next in the Christmas Special. Whatever the outcome, can Neville and Florence deal with the aftermath? And how will Neville keep his well ordered life on track with the unexpected visit of his chaotic sister, Izzy (Kate O’Flynn)?
The award-winning murder mystery series will see Saint Marie’s crime-fighting team investigating yet more deadly cases. When a skydiver dies, apparently stabbed mid-air, the case seems impossible to crack. A murder on a golf course, a killer at a concert, a mysterious case at a rehab clinic all challenge the team’s unique expertise in series 11.
Meanwhile, Florence faces a big decision when asked by the Commissioner to go undercover to solve a drug trafficking case on another island, and questions whether she is ready to face her fears.
The Saint Marie Police department has a bright new addition to the team, and Sergeant Naomi Thomas is eager to make an impact after receiving her big career break! With a can-do attitude and unwavering ambition, Naomi is determined to prove that she has what it takes to make a mark on this team. Will Marlon be able to show the hard-working sergeant how some of his quirky policing tactics and light-hearted approach to work can still get the job done? Will this pair be a match made in heaven or will their differing ways prove impossible to bring together?
How will Commissioner Patterson react when his world is rocked by a face from the past showing up on the island? All will be revealed when the star-studded series airs in early 2022 on BBC One.
Earlier this year, it was announced that fans of Death In Paradise are in for a Caribbean Christmas treat in December, with BBC One commissioning its first ever feature-length episode, which will conclude the 10th anniversary celebrations. The festive 90-minute special will see the return of Danny John-Jules as charismatic Officer Dwayne Myers alongside guest stars Mathew Baynton (Ghosts), Juliet Stevenson (Riviera), Jocelyn Jee Esien (Upstart Crow), Anthony Calf (Domina) and Stanley Townsend (One Chance, The Informer).
Further guest cast includes:
Kate O’Flynn (Close To Me)
