death in paradise

4 Jan

london 7.17pm 9.6C night thursday 2017 2018

7.6C rain 10.15pm

its raining quite heavy outside the flat. must be part of that storm eleanor that i keep hearing about. but it is not windy so is it a storm? can you call that a storm when it is not strong winds? ah well, it does not matter as i am indoors and out of it. haha. it must have brought in some warm weather because it hit 13C high and 7.6C low , mild for this time of year. this is in london. i dont bother with up north. people living there must bear that cross of cold weather if they live there. if they are adaptable, they would find themselves enjoying the cold weather and used to it. 

just saw the first film in the new series of death in paradise on tv, with arlon o’hanlon. it is good, quite a surprise ending and arlon’s character is a nice one, different from the other actors who did this role. lovely to see all that sunshine and beach and colour and greenery when we are having winter here. 

though from this article it is not so easy filming there, because of the humidity. (beware, spoiler alert if u click on the link in there that talks of the first episode which i have just seen).

at least the arlon character is not dressed in a suit, which must be murder for the previous actor who was richard poole, the first detective, who had to wear one throughout his scenes.

it seems the cast and crew  all have to live there (in quadalope) for 5months whilst filming takes place. you might think that would be lovely, but i can understand the previous actor giving up the role.

i can live in london all year, and never feel i want to be somewhere else, but i think if i were to go there, i will want to leave after a month, or even 2wks.  there dont seem to be much to do there, and even lying on the beach and having all the sun can be too much after some time. i bet their tv programs are not as good as what we can get in uk.

We are all horrified at what happen in paris, and yet, we seem to revel in murder mysteries too.

later today at 9pm is the start of a new series of ‘death in paradise‘ murders. From the synopsis it seems it is the death of someone in a seance, in a locked room and everyone was holding hands, so who did it? my guess would be either of the two on each side of the victim who are holding the hands of the victim. it would be interesting to see how it is solved. we can see why we like these kinds of exercise. the gore is much reduced, there is hardly any blood which in real life would make the murder scene really horrific.

why do we like these kinds of things i wonder??? even me, who dont really like to read detective murder mysteries in novels, but i find this tv program quite fascinating, especially because it is set in the caribbean and we get all this sunshine when our real world now is winter.

i wonder if others living in the tropics like it as much because to them the sunshine is not such a draw.

i know for sure i wont be able to guess who did it so the revelation is doubly enjoyable because it would come as a surprise to me.
