Death in Paradise Season 13 Release Date: Will It Happen in This Season?

Bad DI Neville Parker has had it rough as of late on Death in Paradise, and he may have finally reached his breaking point and decided to leave the program for good.

Season 12’s (February 24) last episode will include Ralf Little as Neville, who is seen in a sneak peek bringing the Commissioner (Don Warrington) aside and telling him he’s ready to give up.

The fact that his girlfriend Sophie was exposed as a murderer and had been plotting to kill Neville the entire time she was in the nation certainly didn’t help matters.

She had sought down Neville because she held him responsible for her sister’s murder conviction following a botched narcotics deal in their hometown of Manchester.

And she almost had success at it; before the truth came out, Neville had been arrested for the murder of criminologist David Cartwright. At the end of the second-to-last episode, Neville was seen feeling sorry for himself after a heartbreaking loss and the realization that he had failed the detective squad.

The preview for next week’s episode, though, reveals that Neville is still feeling off his game when a murder occurs in a club he is in.

Neville’s self-doubt is spiraling out of control, and he is starting to question if he belongs in the detective profession at all. There’s still a week until we find out if Ralf truly leaves Saint Marie, but speculation has been rife all season that this will be his last performance as the clean-freak detective.

After Ben Miller as Richard Poole, Kris Marshall as Humphrey Goodman, and Ardal O’Hanlon as Jack Mooney, Little is the fourth actor to play the series’ principal DI.

Miller played the part from the pilot to the beginning of season three, Marshall from the same point until the end of season six, O’Hanlon from the middle of season six until the middle of season nine, and Little from the middle of season nine to the end of season twelve.

Thus, if he wants to follow in his predecessors’ footsteps, now is the time to take the plunge.

He informed his followers, “No I can’t [tell you] is the simple answer” (via Hello). In other words, let’s just lay all the cards on the table and admit that this occurrence occurs year without any significance. There is no meaning to be derived from this.

It’s not like signing on as a football player, where you get signed [to] a five-year contract or a three-year contract or something. All of those talks and negotiations (not negotiations, we aren’t at that level yet)
