BBC will go Beyond Paradise again at Christmas

The Beeb also confirm a second series.

The BBC has today announced that Red Planet Pictures’ Beyond Paradise, co-commissioned with BritBox International, will return for a second series and a Christmas special following the huge success of series one. One of the UK’s most popular dramas of the year so far, Beyond Paradise has attracted an audience of 8.7 million viewers (BBC all-screens 30-day figure for episode one).

Lindsay Salt, Director of BBC Drama:

“I’m beyond excited to return to Shipton Abbott for both a Christmas special and second series of Beyond Paradise. The response from BBC viewers to series one has been a joy to see, and like its millions of fans I’m intrigued to find out what new mysteries lie in store for Humphrey, Martha and the team.”

Returning to brighten up living rooms with their heart-warming relationships and puzzling criminal capers are Kris Marshall as DI Humphrey Goodman, Sally Bretton as Martha Lloyd, Zahra Ahmadi as DS Esther Williams, Dylan Llewellyn as PC Kelby Hartford, Felicity Montagu as office support Margo Martins and Barbara Flynn as Anne Lloyd.

With series one reaching its emotional conclusion tonight on BBC One and iPlayer, fans were treated to some exotic sunshine as Humphrey Goodman visited his old stomping ground in Saint Marie. While taking in the blue-skied vista of the Caribbean coastline, Detective Inspector took some time away to clear his mind and consider his future in Shipton Abbott.

Created by Robert Thorogood and Tony Jordan, Beyond Paradise is produced by Red Planet Pictures. The Christmas special will air in the 2023 festive season, whilst series two will land next year.
