BBC One Sets January Premiere Date For ‘Death In Paradise’ Season 9
Get ready to celebrate the New Year in the sun-soaked Caribbean, as BBC One sets the January premiere date for ‘Death In Paradise‘ Season 9.
As we head into episode one, it’s New Year’s Eve, and Aaron McCormack (Elliot Cowan) and his wife Vanessa (Amanda Hale) are set to enjoy an evening of festivities at Aaron’s company Cariba Airways, alongside his employees, including Aaron’s assistant Tabatha (Nell Hudson).
Aaron heads to the party alone, but celebrations quickly come to a halt when Vanessa is found stabbed – all while Aaron is doing the rounds at the party. D.I Jack Mooney (Ardal O’Hanlon), along with his trusted team of D.S. Madeleine Dumas (Aude Legastelois-Bidé), Officer JP Hooper (Tobi Bakare) and Officer Ruby Patterson (Shyko Amos), are quickly on the scene, but are welcomed by some inconclusive CCTV footage and an eerie message left by a perpetrator in a devil mask.
When Charles Crabtree (Adrian Edmondson) witnesses a further attack by the same masked murderer on Donald McCormack (Samuel West), the estranged brother of Aaron, the team is baffled. As another cryptic message found at the second crime scene, and each suspect is found to have an alibi, the team struggle to find who is behind this joint attack on the siblings – and why.
Meanwhile, Jack continues to get into the swing of island life at the local dance hall, but surprises himself when he finds a new dance partner.
This will be the final outing for Ardal O’Hanlon’s D.I. Jack Mooney. He will be replaced by Ralf Little as Detective Inspector Neville Parker.
‘Death In Paradise‘ Season 9 premieres Thursday 9th January 2020 at 9pm on BBC One.
