Kris Marshall is back on our screens as Humphrey Goodman in Death in Paradise!

The episode is the eighth from season five, and sees Humphrey, and sees Humphrey look into the mysterious death of a student backpacker whose death points to suicide - but of course not all as it seems. The episode also sees JP prepare to tie the knot as Florence encourages Humphrey to go after a former flame. Ah, memories!

Show bosses recently confirmed that filming in Guadeloupe had been postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown, with executive producer Tim Key explaining: "In light of the spread of Covid-19, after much consideration, Red Planet Pictures the producers of Death in Paradise have postponed filming in consultation with and supported by the BBC. We will continue to review all productions on a case-by-case basis and will continue to follow the latest news and advice from the Foreign Office, World Health Organisation and Public Health England."
