'Death in Paradise' Season 4 Premieres on KCET

DeathinParadiseDuo_630.jpg

Your day just got brighter, "Death in Paradise" fans. Season four of the hit BBC detective drama makes its KCET debut tonight at 8:47 p.m., following "Doc Martin," and re-airs at midnight.

Unlike past seasons, the show will also now be available to stream online (for L.A. Designated Market Area residents) concurrent to its on-air broadcast.

The warm, lighthearted series about an inspector who's assigned to investigate murders on the paradise island of Saint-Marie in the Caribbean now stars Kris Marshall, who plays detective DI Humphrey Goodman. DI Richard Poole (played by Ben Miller) was murdered in last season's premiere.

The new season opens with -- you guessed it -- a murder. When the owner of a rum distillery is killed during a seance, all clues point to the prime suspect being a ghost.

"Downton Abbey's" Amy Nuttall (she played housemaid Ethel Parks), "Call the Midwife's" Leo Staar (he played Jenny Lee's boyfriend Alec), "Outnumbered's" Tyger Drew Honey, "The Fast Show's" Simon Day, and "Broadchurch's" Will Mellor guest star this season.

Season four synopses:

Episode 1

When the owner of a rum distillery is murdered during a seance, all clues point to the prime suspect being a ghost. With DI Humphrey Goodman and his team a man down, Commissioner Selwyn Patterson steps in to help them look for a more human killer.

Episode 2

The team enters the world of surfing when DI Goodman is convinced that there's more to the murder of a surf instructor than meets the eye. Dwayne works hard to impress the new sergeant.

Episode 3

A death in the Saint Marie Heritage Society suggests that this cosy group could be less amicable than it seems. DI Goodman tries to stay focused on the job while wrestling with his feelings for Camille.

Episode 4

When a bride-to-be is killed on the last night of her hen party, DI Goodman tries to unravel a seemingly impossible murder. Meanwhile Camille has a big decision to make.

Episode 5

The team is introduced to the crazy world of rock and roll when the lead singer of a band is murdered on Saint Marie. Can DI Goodman keep control of the unruly suspects for long enough to solve the crime?

Episode 6

As Saint Marie celebrates getting through to the finals of the Inter-Island Volleyball Championships, DI Goodman and the team are under pressure to solve the murder of a player, while Commissioner Selwyn squares up to an old nemesis.

Episode 7

DI Goodman is embroiled in the cut-throat world of corporate team building when an entrepreneur is killed, but a surprise revelation from one of the suspects threatens to derail the investigation.

Episode 8

When a prisoner is killed in their custody, DI Goodman and the team are under pressure to solve the case quickly. Humphrey's father visits Saint Marie intent on meddling in his son's life.
