The 10th season of Death in Paradise is on its way back to BBC One with new detective Neville Parker (played by Ralf Little) at the helm. The new series will see Neville faced with a fresh load of cases as well as the imminent exit of Officer Ruby Patterson (Shyko Amos) and fans have been rewatching the series to refresh their memories in the meantime. However, one eagle-eyed fan has spotted a continuity error which occurred way back in season five.

The slight continuity error in question comes during the fourth episode of the show’s fifth run, titled A Personal Murder.

The episode opens with Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) attending the funeral of pal Cedrik Verga (Trevor a Toussaint).

Dwayne delivers a heartfelt speech as he says goodbye to his old friend before a text sends shivers down his spine.

Upon leaving the church, Dwayne receives a text from Cedrik which states he was murdered – despite the coroner confirmed his death was of natural causes.

With the help of DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall), Dwayne sets off to find the truth.

Dwayne’s investigation ends with him interviewing those closest to Cedrik on the night of his death until a blast from the past allows him to piece together the puzzle of his friend’s death.

However, while Dwayne and Humphrey’s investigation was enough to get fans talking, it was scene right at the start at the funeral which has caught the eye of one viewer.

They’ve pointed out that in the background of a key scene from the gathering, one particular person appears to keep switching places.

Fans will get to see the drama on the Caribbean island return when season 10 rolls around, with filming in full swing.

So far, the likes of Jason Manford and Strictly Come Dancing winner Kelvin Fletcher are just two of the celebrity guest stars to be confirmed to star.

With the complications that have arisen as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Executive Producer Tim Key has spoken on the excitement on being able to film the new series safely.

“We are delighted to be able to start filming and can’t wait to celebrate our 10th series with our audience,” he said. 

Tim added: “It’s a joy to be working with Josephine Jobert again and we think the viewers will love watching her trying to get to grips with Neville. 

“And we are very happy to welcome Tahj Miles to the show. Marlon is going to make real waves once he arrives in Saint Marie. 

“We’ve got some real treats for our long-term viewers as the series progresses – including some major surprises and the possibility of another returning face or two. 

“We are determined to make this our biggest and best series yet and can’t wait to take our viewers back to Saint Marie in 2021.”

Death in Paradise season 10 premieres on BBC One in 2021.
