Ben Miller and Sara Martins star in episode 6 of Death in Paradise, written by Robert Thorogood.
With Richard struck down by a tropical disease and Camille in Paris, it is left to Dwayne and Fidel to solve the murder of a local diver, Benjamin Lightfoot. After a night of heavy drinking with his brother, Mark, Benjamin is seen by his boss Phil Owen and Dwayne going diving the following morning.
When Benjamin is still not back after a couple of hours, Mark raises the alarm with Phil – and helped by Phil’s wife, Alex Owen, they search the water. Alex finds Benjamin’s dead body in unusually shallow waters. This isn’t the only thing that doesn’t make sense, as Dwayne notices odd markings on Benjamin’s chest.
When he then tests Benjamin’s air gauge and discovers the tank is still full of air it’s clear that it must be murder.
Dwayne and Fidel begin their investigation but, as if their job wasn’t tough enough with the crime scene the open sea, they then have to contend with holidaying British cop DS Angela Young, who Commissioner Selwyn Patterson reveals will be helping out whilst Richard and Camille are absent.
Angela deduces Phil is the killer but Dwayne and Fidel aren’t convinced and head to Richard’s bungalow – only to discover they’ve both been giving him information about the case. With Richard still delirious will this be the one case he can’t crack?
