I suppose it was bound to happen eventually...
11 December 2019 | by mainestaySee all my reviews

Many television series, sooner or later, have one particular episode which can be identified as to where the series finally "jumped the shark." I believe this is it, and it can all be blamed on the new character, Officer Ruby Patterson. Watch the episode...even the other characters, when first meeting her, realize she doesn't belong there!

Having a comic relief character is fine. It can be argued that Dwayne Meyers filled that role when he was there. But Dwayne did it subtly, with style, and didn't overdo it. Ruby is almost a caricature! More like the Officer Hooks character from the Police Academy movies.

Death In Paradise has been my favorite TV series since episode 1 premiered, but if this Ruby character remains the way she is, as far as I'm concerned, DIP ended with season 7.
