The BBC detective show Death in Paradise is known for its detectives solving the most dramatic murders in the quietest of exotic destinations. But tonight will see DI Jack Mooney’s (played by Ardal O’Hanlon) final performance before he is replaced by DI Neville Parker (Ralf Little). The big question is, how will he exit the show?
Viewers have seen a number of detectives over the years starting with the murdered DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) who was replaced Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) who left for love.
But whose footsteps will current detective Jack Mooney follow in?
In recent scenes, Jack has been getting closer to Anna Houghton (Nina Wadia) and said it would never be the same if he left the island without her, but are her intentions as pure as Jack believes?
Ardal has now spoken out about the difficulties and obstacles the crew faced when filming the show ahead of his exit.

He continued: “I told Ralf all the cool restaurants to go to, but the only real advice I could give him, other than preparation, is stay cool, literally and metaphorically, when things go wrong. Because they will go wrong.”
However, it seems there were other obstacles when filming, and it’s something viewers might have expected.
Ardal explained: “Nothing can prepare you for the noise, the sheer cacophony on the island.
“The sun goes down at six o’clock and then the frogs and the crickets kick in.
“They don’t stop for 12 hours, it gets louder and louder. Then the wild dogs start barking and start chasing the wild hens. It is chaos out there, madness.”
