Death in Paradise season 12 episode two has left us very worried for Ralf Little’s character Neville Parker - for more reasons than one!

In the episode, Neville and his team investigated a mysterious doomsday cult death - where the man was found in a bunker, locked in and alone - but was poisoned with cyanide. During their investigation, they also discover a second murder had taken place. With two arrests under their belt, the episode concluded with the remaining member of the cult - played by Robert Webb - sinisterly watching Neville say farewell to Sophie - and we’re sure that he will be out for revenge!

What do you think?

While we would never have thought that the writers would do that to the fan favourite DI, this certainly wouldn’t be the first time the main character has been killed off, as Ben Miller’s character DI Richard Poole was murdered when he decided to leave in season two.

Could he possibly follow Humphrey’s footsteps in leaving Guadeloupe in the pursuit of true love? We can’t wait to find out, bring on episode three!
