DEATH in Paradise fans think they’ve got series 10 all figured out before it has even started.
The popular BBC series will return in 2021 for its tenth anniversary season and to mark the occassion, some familiar faces will be returning.
Ben Miller will return as DI Richard Poole next year
Meanwhile Ben Miller will return as DI Richard Poole a full decade on from his show debut.
If you’re confused, you have every reason to be – Poole was killed off at the end of his stint on the drama, meaning his return remains shrouded in mystery.
It’s possible that he’ll make his appearance through a series of flashbacks – however fans have some altogether more morbid ideas.
They think Poole will return as a ghost and haunt his old pal Camille as she conducts her invesitgative work.

Sara Martins will also be back as DS Camille Bordey
One Twitter user wrote: “My theory is that Camille will dreamily remember Richard, who will, somehow, inspire and/or guide her to help Neville and Florence solve the crime.
“But the ending will be ambiguous, opening up the possibility that Richard is indeed a ghost. Just like Randall & Hopkirk!”
Another echoed: “I think he haunts Camille, she will be interviewing a suspect at their house while they’re making tea and Richard ghost pops up and goes, ‘OMG he’s putting the milk in first, he’s got to be the murderer, the man’s clearly a psychopath,’ she screams ‘SHUT UP’ everyone else [will] be [confused].”
Meanwhile a third theorised that he would simply be a facet of her imagination, writing: “I’m betting Camille comes back from France because of some kind of head injury sustained doing something heroic.
“She ends up having to muck in with the team. Her injury sometimes manifests itself through her seeing Richard, and he helps solve the crimes by speaking to her.”
