Death in Paradise
The Guadeloupe Islands, alias Saint Marie
Have you ever watched Death in Paradise? It is a British-French crime drama series produced by the BBC and which is filmed… in the Guadeloupe Islands! The story is about a British detective who tries to discover who killed a British police officer in the fictional Island of Saint Marie.
In the series, this island is a British overseas Territory located in the Caribbean. You can sometimes hear French in the show because Saint Marie is supposed to be a former French Territory.
Most of the episodes occur in the fictional town of Honoré. In real life, this town is actually called Deshaies and is located in Basse-Terre Island.
Death In Paradise has been broadcast on BBC One in the UK since 2011 and is also broadcast in the US on PBS.
