Ben Miller (Primeval) again stars as Detective Inspector Richard Poole - the uptight English police officer uncomfortable in such exotic surroundings - and he is joined once more by Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf) as police officer Dwayne Myers, Don Warrington as Commissioner Selwyn Patterson, Sara Martins as Detective Sergeant Camille Bordey (pictured below with Miller), and Gary Carr as police officer Fidel Best.
Guadeloupe once again doubles for the fictitious island of Saint Marie, and as with the first series there will be eight 60-minute episodes when the show returns to BBC One early next year.
Co-executive producer Belinda Campbell said:
The stories for this series are full of humour and intrigue and hopefully the whole family will have fun trying to work out whodunit each week. We can't wait to bring a bit of Caribbean sunshine back to the cold and wet UK!
The programme is a Red Planet Pictures production in association with Kudos Film and TV and BBC Worldwide, produced with the support of the region of Guadeloupe. Created by Robert Thorogood, it is produced by Tim Key and directed by Keith Boak, Alrick Riley, and David O'Neil.
