The smart Caribbean set crime series, Death In Paradise - starring Armstrong & Miller and Primeval actor, Ben Miller, alongside Sara Martins (Little White Lies), Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf), Don Warrington (New Street Law) and Gary Carr (The Duchess) - returns on Tuesday 8th January 2013 for a new eight-part run, serving up a fresh batch of mysterious murders and sun-soaked suspects.

It has been announced that the opening sequences of Red Planet Pictures’ hit primetime crime drama, Death In Paradise, which reveal the respective story’s murder, will be released exclusively online at 1pm the day before each episode.

The pre-title, opening sequences of the new episodes, which feature home-grown British talent including the likes of Dexter Fletcher, Ralf Little, Lucy Davis, Mathew Horne and Stephanie Beacham and will be premiered on the series’ social media sites ( and @deathinparadise) weekly at 1pm on the day before it airs, teasing the murder sequence ahead of the episode. This will allow fans to watch and share the sneak peeks with the hashtag #DeathInParadise, prior to the episode premiere the following night.

Filmed on the idyllic island of Guadeloupe, the new series sees Ben 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. Slowly adjusting to his new Caribbean lifestyle with the help of colleagues, witty Camille (Sara Martins), laid-back Dwayne (Danny John-Jules) and enthusiastic Fidel (Gary Carr), the brilliant detective returns to our screens to investigate more dastardly murders.

Death In Paradise returns to BBC 1 on Tuesday 8th January at 9pm.
