On Thursday night, fans of Death In Paradise were treated to the concluding episode of Man Overboard – the first 2-parter in
the history of the show, which further broke with convention by relocating Humphrey
Goodman (Kris Marshall) & the St Honore team from the balmy climes of Saint
Marie to the wind & drizzle of London. It would prove to be the culmination
of an era.
Given his long-term involvement with Death In Paradise, Richard Signy was the
natural choice to direct both parts of Man
Overboard, as Executive Producer Tim Key explains:
"Having directed many of our more high profile
episodes, we felt that Richard was absolutely the right person to helm our two
part London special for Death in Paradise. We needed someone who knew the
show inside out, but could also bring something fresh to the mix as the show
ventured into new territory. Perhaps the biggest challenge - and responsibility
- was introducing our new lead detective in a surprising and dynamic way.
Richard delivered on all counts. The cast always enjoy working with him
and we couldn’t be prouder of the finished episodes."
Congratulations on doing such a bang-up job, Richard!
