Death in Paradise series 12 has announced even more cast members joining the sun-drenched drama.

The upcoming run of the BBC One favourite confirmed three more actors today (October 19), including Game of Thrones, Sanditon and Nighty Night star Kevin Eldon.

Also announced were Amit Shah, who has appeared in The Long Call, The Witcher and Last Christmas, and Chelsea Edge, who is specifically announced as playing a guest role.

The trio join a list of already announced actors for series 12, including Doctor Who and Holby City star Jo Martin, Derry Girls’ Sister Michael herself, Siobhan McSweeney, and Les Dennis.

Meanwhile, fellow Derry Girls alumni Dylan Williams has joined the cast of Death in Paradise spin-off Beyond Paradise, alongside former EastEnders star Zahra Ahmadi, and another Nighty Night star, Felicity Montagu. Unlike the latest castings for the main show, we know who this trio will be playing.

Kris Marshall is making the move from the main series to the spin-off, and he recently spoke about the differences between the two shows.

“It’s carrying on from where we left Humphrey Goodman and Martha, with their new bucolic south-western lifestyle,” Marshall said. “The classic Death in Paradise way of wrapping up the show is spun on its head a bit – not every episode is a murder – so more sheep rustling and stuff like that!

“It puts an English Riviera spin on the show people know and love. Who needs the Caribbean?”
