DI Poole tip: Flash your badge to force a waiter to give you tea when the tea shop is closed. Because one is British and one needs fuel.
The Quotable Camille Bordey: “I am a detective sergeant in the St Marie police force. I graduated top of my year. I have three commendations for bravery. I’ve been shot twice. And could most certainly beat you in a fist fight…But you, you are a rude man, you are ignorant, full of your own self-importance, expecting everyone to follow you around and hang on your every word! From now on, you’ll treat me with a little more respect or I’ll be forced to forget I’m a police officer…Ok?”

Richard will have to team up with DS Camille Bourdey. He’s complaining because she’s French (and probably an ESTP). He shouldn’t…they’re going to be a great team! Sara Martins does a marvelous job as Bourdey.
And he gets to keep the beach house (and the house lizard) and to continue to suffer from the heat as he just won’t let go of his suit and tie.

Yes, there is a recurring green lizard with whom Richard is going to make friends as it keeps inviting itself in his beach house. It’s the house lizard. Goes with the house.
This series set is amazingly beautiful (filmed in the village of Deshaies). I now want to go to Guadeloupe. I actually am drinking rum as I am typing this…

Where do I even begin?
I love Ben Miller and I love Richard Poole…such an NT (INTJ is my guess)!!! Love his frowny face and all his geekery :)
Lots of digs at the French (I am a Froguette myself but I enjoy it ahahahah).
Flatmate, flatemate’s mum from Cumbria and me watching Return of the Jedi :
Flatmate’s mum in a northern accent: “Turn the volume up a bit…the old guy is coming on “
She means the Emperor :)
Flatmate and I are re-watching Iron Man on TV:
Flatmate: Is it actually Robert wearing the Suit?
Me: that’s a good question…
Flatmate: because it doesn’t look like his bum…
