Death in Paradise delighted fans with season 10 this year and ahead of the final episode later this week, the BBC show’s boss, Tim Key, has spoken out on what is going to be an “emotional” ending for all characters involved. Over the past couple of months, viewers have tuned in to see several popular character’s returns, as well as some famous faces, take on cameo roles. But, it seems episode eight is going to top off everything which has happened already.
Taking to Twitter, Executive Producer Tim announced he had “signed off” the series.
He told his 1.5k followers: “With less than a week to go, have signed off series finale of #deathinparadise – and it’s a lovely episode too.
“Feeling quite emotional about the whole thing. So grateful to our amazing production team and cast. Ti punch!”
Alongside the comment, he had posted a video of the editing suite which showed a very idyllic and calm image of the sea, the sun setting and two characters – which are too small to be identified sitting at the end of a wooden jetty.
Lead actor, Ralf Little, who plays DI Neville Parker, retweeted Tim’s tweet and added: “Cutting it fine.
“The culmination of months and months of endeavour and belief. Series finale of @deathinparadise this coming Thursday.”
As for what is in store for fans, the summary for the finale episode explains how there is a confession before the opening titles roll.
A man named Emmet Peterson (played by Will Johnson) will stagger into Saint Marie’s police station wearing a blood-spattered top.
Those watching at home will see him confess to killing his boss – but it is safe to say, there is more to this murder tale than meets the eye.
There are few other loose ties which will need to be sorted out; will Sergeant JP Hooper (Tobi Bakare) take on the new job he’s been offered?
Viewers saw Commissioner Selwyn Patterson (Don Warrington) tell the police officer to “sleep on” the new position offers and “discuss it with [his] wife”.
“Opportunities like this don’t come along too often,” he added.

Following this conversation, fans flocked to social media to discuss the prospect of JP leaving Death in Paradise.
One said: “Looks like they’re paving the way for JP to leave #DeathInParadise, which is a shame. I’d like to see him step up into the plainclothes Sgt role when Neville and Florence go off, into the sunset or otherwise, under a new female inspector from the UK.”
“Fantastic episode tonight #DeathInParadise but if JP leaves will it mean a return for Dwayne? @DannyJohnJules,” someone theorised.
Another added: “Don’t think I could watch Death in Paradise without JP!! #DeathInParadise.”
There is also the question whether Neville can admit his true feelings for DS Florence Cassell (Josephine Jobert), once and for all.
Looking ahead to the show’s future, Tim was asked by a fan: “New series given the green light?” And he replied: “Oh yes. Plotting it right now…”
It comes after the BBC commissioned another two seasons; 11 and 12, but whether Neville will be at the helm, fans will have to wait and see.
Death in Paradise concludes on Thursday at 9pm on BBC One.
