      Weblog excerpts:

      "This ['Death in Paradise'] is pure formula, but it shows
      that you don't need to deviate from the template if you
      do it well. These are well-structured and impeccably
      paced Golden Age-style mysteries set on the fictional
      Caribbean island of Saint-Marie, with a focus on
      impossible crimes."

      "It also demonstrated . . . [that] it's perfectly possible
      to have a mystery series where the main characters are
      only lightly sketched, and where their life outside the
      mystery of the week is basically irrelevant."

      ". . . 'Death in Paradise' consistently shows there's no
      requirement for a mystery to be baffling for it to be
      entertaining."

      ". . . The show doesn't claim to be 'Jonathan Creek'.
      Impossible crimes aren't in its remit, they just tend
      to crop up. . ."
