Hello Clare “Dr. Laura Hobson” Holman!

As much as we love Nicholas Farrel he was no match for Ben Miller in this episode! GO BEN!

Continuing our examination of guest stars who have worked with Ben Miller on Death In Paradise we now present Robert Pugh.

Ahhh Robert, better known to some as Crastor from Game Of Thrones, Robert Pugh has also been seen in Doctor Who (‘The Hungry Earth’ and ‘Cold Blood’), Hustle, Torchwood, Prime Suspect & Silent Witness, and these titles don’t even begin to scratch the surface of what Robert can be seen in.

Episode Synopsis: As DI Richard Poole desperately searches for a decent cup of tea, a bride is murdered on her wedding day. It is a tragedy DS Camille Bordey cannot help but notice, whilst Richard is more interested in housekeeping signs… But who would kill a bride on her wedding day? Could it really be one of her family?

How could we start our examination of extraordinary guest stars who have worked with Ben Miller without acknowledging Rupert Graves?

Rupert Graves (aka The Man Who Is In EVERYTHING!) not only starred with Ben in the first episode of Death In Paradise, but has also starred in Sherlock, Scott & Bailey, Single Father, Spooks, Waking The Dead, Lewis & Law & Order: UK just to name a mere few.

Ben Miller, Lenora Crichlow and Rupert Graves in Death In Paradise Season 1, Episode 1

Episode Synopsis: When a British policeman is found murdered in a locked room on the tiny paradise island of Sainte-Marie, Detective Inspector Richard Poole is sent to investigate. He’s the perfect man to solve the case. Unfortunately for Richard, he hates sun, sea and sand…

I know, I know, I am late AGAIN with the Ben Miller Wednesday! If only I hadn’t been up all night watching a Death In Paradise marathon…

We all know Ben Miller is brilliant, but so are many of the guest stars that have worked alongside him over the years. For those fans of Toby Whithouses’ Being Human, Lenora Crichlow was almost unrecognisable with a Jamaican accent and not wearing her Annie Sawyer outfit. What a perfect way to start the series, Lenora starred alongside Ben Miller in Season 1, episode 1 of Death In Paradise.

Lenora has also been seen in Doctor Who (2007’s ‘Gridlock‘ with David Tennant and Freema Agyeman) and most recently in the exceptional Black Mirror episode titled White Bear (even if you’re not a fan of Black Mirror this is a great episode).
