Death in Paradise airs a new season in January every year and 2021 was no different despite the coronavirus pandemic. The BBC show was forced to delay production last year due to the virus outbreak but was still able to deliver season 10 of the detective drama in its usual slot. However, DI Neville Parker star Ralf Little has hinted this may not be possible for season 11. 

In a recent interview, Ralf discussed the impact the pandemic had on the latest season. 

“Well, in a normal situation we would head out to Guadalupe in mid-April and we finish sometime in October,” he shared. 

“But last year for series ten, because of COVID, we put it back to July, three months later than we would normally go.

“We finished on the 20th of December, which is amazing really because they were still committed to transmitting the episodes on pretty much the same date in January – an achievement and a really nice slice of luck – but still a very hard thing to pull off.”

The Death in Paradise actor warned fans there will be likely a delay to the filming of next year’s season.

Ralf continued: “I don’t think we’re heading back in April but I don’t think we’re going to be as late as July either. 

“So all I know is we definitely want to go back and we’re trying to find out the best window for when that could happen. 

“Nobody wants to leave it too late. In a perfect world, we’d get out there earlier rather than later.”

“But the world is what it is at the moment. We just have to work out what we can do,” he told Hello! Magazine. 

Season 10 ended on a huge cliffhanger as Neville prepared to tell Florence Cassell (Josephine Jobert) how he really felt. 

The detective realised he had developed feelings for his partner and tried to avoid her in the season’s penultimate episode. 

However, when he learnt she was planning to go on a date, he decided he needed to be honest with his colleague.

Before viewers got the chance to find out if Florence reciprocated, the season came to a close. 

Will Neville’s attempt to come clean be thwarted or will the pair realise they feel the same about each other?

Elsewhere, Ralf has hinted to fans that he could be signing up to Strictly Come Dancing later this year. 

The actor revealed he has been approached by several reality shows in the past and shared: “I’ve been asked to do all of them every year. 

“That’s normal. I mean everyone gets offered, everyone gets approached to find out if they would be interested. That’s it.

“And that’s more common than you think because they’re always looking for new people who haven’t done it. So to be asked is not that unusual.” 

On whether he would ever agree to a reality show, Ralf teased: “Again, never say never! I think that it’s very easy to be dismissive of things.

“I think, people who participate in Strictly and do well in Strictly, they’re learning a real skill, an art form, and there’s something really rewarding about that,” he told Hello! Magazine.
