Death in Paradise season 11 returns next week, with Ralf Little returning as Neville Parker, Josephine Jobert as Florence Cassell and many more. Also returning to the island of Saint Marie is Catherine Bordey, played by Elizabeth Bourgine, who dedicates her life to the people and communities of the island and is the team’s saving grace after a long day. During an online Q&A, Elizabeth opened up about what fans can expect to see during the new series and teased at some “big surprises”.

Speaking about what fans have got to look forward to in season 11, Elizabeth revealed: “Catherine is really caring about Neville and about Florence, and also Commissioner Selwyn Patterson.

“Those three will be surprisingly emotional, and I can’t tell you anything about the murders because Catherine will not speak about this, it is for the police.

“But I think I can just speak about their love affairs or things, and you will have big big big surprises!”

Elizabeth also spoke about the upcoming guest stars which will be popping up throughout the series, including Tamzin Outhwaite, who was announced recently.

She revealed: “Well, I don’t know, I don’t remember the name of an actress I had scenes with, she’s Neville’s sister.”

Ralf Little helped Elizabeth out and said: “Kate O’Flynn!”

Thankful for Ralf’s input, Elizabeth continued: “She was fantastic to have scenes with her, she was great, she was really funny, really inventive, a lovely actress!”

Continuing on from what Elizabeth had said about Kate, Ralf also revealed: “Kate is a good mention though because she turns up playing my sister.

“[She] causes me all sorts of hassle when I’m trying to concentrate on solving case, and then I’ve got this whirlwind reckless sister that comes and turns my life upside down.

“But I have to deal with it, but I think people will enjoy [seeing] that play out and see how that upended Neville’s world.

“Just as Neville is starting to settle into the island and overcome all the hurdles that he’s come into, and then suddenly she turns up and turns everything upside down!” he revealed.

When asked more about their relationship and if they both get along well, Ralf explained: “Both, both can be true at the same time.

“I mean, I’ve got siblings, and I’d say that’s about standard, both they have a deep affection for each other very different personalities.

“She causes mayhem in his life, and it winds him up, but they kind of, they fulfil, they fill in the gaps of each other’s personalities as they did when they grew up and they kind of learned from each other.”

The Christmas special ended with Florence Cassell admitting she’d heard Neville asking her on a date, and fans are keen to find out if they will ever get together.

However, Ralf implied in the Q&A that Neville’s fate on the island may soon be over, as she teased the character will be dealing with “personal problems”.

Speaking about where the new series kicks off for Neville, Ralf revealed: “Well, of course, as I’m sure everyone will remember, they saw him right on the verge of telling Florence how he feels.

“The start of this series picks up right off the back of that and deals with the aftermath of how that conversation goes.

“The first few episodes deal with what that aftermath looks like, so with Neville’s journey is very much taken up with that.”

Will fans finally see Florence and Neville start a relationship with one another? Or will Neville’s personal problems lead him to leave the island and Florence for good?

Death in Paradise begins Friday, 7 January 2022, at 9PM on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
