Oddball London copper tackles Caribbean crime. More soporific than amusing.

Police procedural/locked room drama series. Sub-Agatha Christie quality. Nice earner for the cast. Immensely popular in UK.

The copper is I suppose meant to be a [stereo-] 'typical,' 'no-nonsense' (etc) London detective, who bizarrely persists in wearing a suit, tie, and dress shoes long after deplaning in the unpaved and broiling-hot 'paradise'.

I assume he brought a spare suit, and there's a dry-cleaner somewhere around who specializes in removing perspiration stains, because he is always immaculately turned out. Such are the details that captured my interest.

Season 1, episode 2 spoiler: the butler did it
