Beyond Paradise will follow the lives of Humphrey (Kris Marshall) and Martha (Sally Bretton) as they begin a new life together in charming, rural southwest England. 

Eager to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, Humphrey takes on the job of Detective Inspector in Martha’s childhood hometown. 

However, the couple soon discover that country life isn’t so quiet, with the town’s surprisingly high crime rate leading to Humphrey tackling a new and challenging case each week.

The endearingly awkward DI Humphrey was a fan-favourite, and he led the island’s force in solving some of their most puzzling cases.

But when he met island tourist Martha Lloyd (Sally Bretton), he fell hopelessly in love and decided to follow her back to the UK.

Beyond Paradise will reunite Marshall and Bretton as Humphrey and Martha and re-join them living a new life together in rural Britain.

Seeking quiet idyll, Humphrey takes a job as Detective Inspector in Martha’s hometown, but they soon find that country life is anything but peaceful.
