Last week viewers said goodbye to Kris Marshall’s DI Humphrey Goodman as the detective bowed out from the show.

Kris decided to leave the hit series after four years to spend more time with his family and although it might be sad news for viewers there’s a new lead to look forward to.

In his final scene DI Humphrey declared his love to Martha in the middle of a restaurant and it was a happy ending for the lovable dectective.

Unlike his predecessor DI Richard Poole’s (Ben Miller) when he was murdered four years ago.

Kris will be replaced by Father Ted star Ardal O’Hanlon who returns as DI Jack Mooney, a widowed cop

His first Caribbean case sees the reopening of a seven-year-old murder when a tourist provides an alibi for the woman convicted of the crime.

Ardal will return to the island in the spring to begin filming the seventh series.

How can I visit Saint Marie?

For many of the viewers part of the fun is the beautiful island Saint Marie, with its idyllic beaches, blue waters and sunny skies it certainly brightens up a cold Thursday evening.

is the real-life St Marie, it’s about halfway down the eastern Caribbean chain, between Dominica and Antigua, and many filming locations on the island have become tourist hotspots.

Attached are some locations featured in the show you can visit for yourself.

Botanical gardens – The botanical gardens are where the previous DI – played by Ben Miller – met his end in series two and is a must-see.

It is nestled in a picturesque village called Deshaies and is one of the most visited sites in Guadeloupe. The gardens are bursting with tropical flowers and exotic animals including a bamboo forest, flamingos and colourful birds called lorikeets.

Anse La Perle – This is where DI Humphrey’s beach house is located, and although the home is just for filming purposes the stunning beach is very much real.

Anse La Perle is given a 4½ star rating on TripAdvisor with one user called Cjak71 saying: “This was our favourite beach in Guadeloupe. Nice quiet beach, good shady spots and great waves to play in. Parking can be challenging but worth it.

“Couldn’t quite figure out where the Humphrey house would be. . . ”

Langley Resort – The crew generally stay at the plush Langley Resort Fort Royal , in suites and bungalows overlooking the ocean.

If you want to stay in the hotel you can either book a room or stay in one of their bungalows.

For food you can head down to the Le Royal restaurant where you can tuck into “modern cuisine with a mixture of Creole and international flavours”.

For days when you fancy something a little more laid back check out the Kawann Beach Bar.

Here you can kick back and enjoy a selection of Caribbean drinks and cocktails and tuck into pizzas, salads and other snacks.

A two bed bungalow at the Langley Resort overlooking the Caribbean Sea will set you back £688.67 for seven days in May.

If you choose to go the second week of June it’s the same price for the same number of days.

The pricing various depending on what month you pick as some months are more popular than others. The website for the resort can be found here.

Getting to Guadeloupe

Select your preferred airport on Skyscanner’s site and choose your travel dates – or if you’re flexible the ‘cheapest month’ – the site will compare prices providing you with money saving options.

For example a flight to Pointe-a-Pitre could cost you £703 if you were to go for a week in June whilst single fares start at £310 for a trip to the island.
