Peter Davison, Michelle Ryan and Helen Baxendale join Kris Marshall on the island of Saint Marie.
BBC One and Red Planet Picures have announced today that actors Peter Davison (Doctor Who, At Home With The Braithwaites), Michelle Ryan (Jekyll, Merlin) and Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet, Cuckoo) will guest star in the next series of hit drama Death in Paradise.
Series Three of the Caribbean drama will see the debut of Kris Marshall as the lead detective following the departure of Ben Miller’s DI Richard Poole from the island of Saint Marie.
Commenting on her role in the hit series, Michelle Ryan said, “It’s very exciting to be a part of this excellent series. I play an actress who is quite a handful with a dark past. The action element is always appealing for me and getting to film on the gorgeous Island of Guadeloupe was incredible. We had so much fun!”
Reaching ratings of up to 8 million viewers on BBC One earlier this year, the successful series follows the detective team on the idyllic Caribbean island of Saint Marie as they investigate the most intriguing and dastardly of murders. The team must use their skills to uncover the truth behind the island’s complex crimes.
Belinda Campbell, Executive Producer for Red Planet Pictures said, “We’re thrilled to have another fantastic list of talented guest stars involved for the third series of Death In Paradise. We’re very lucky to have such gifted actors and actresses to accompany our equally brilliant regular cast in bringing the twists and turns on the intricate mysteries to life. Hopefully the new series will help bring some Caribbean sunshine to the UK during the cold and rainy winter months!”
