Chatting about what viewers can expect, the Sanditon actor said: "I can't really say much about what happens, but what it is about the scripts that I really love, Tony Jordan's [writer] done a beautiful job on the two or three scripts I've seen. 

"It's exactly what you hope for in terms of if you're a fan of Death in Paradise. Obviously, it's not in the Caribbean, but it's in its own paradise. It's got its own new twist on it."
