It was then viewers got to see Camille again – working as a policewoman in Paris.

She told her old boss that she would be back as soon as she could.

How did fans react?

One fan on Twitter wrote: “Camille, Florence and Katherine – the classic ladies of #DeathInParadise. So nice to see them all in the same episode again.

“Still absolutely amazing characters. Great episode all in all, really interesting mystery.”

Another said: “What an episode!! I didn’t breathe for the last 10 mins!!

What an episode!! I didn’t breathe for the last 10 mins!!

“So lovely to see Camille again! Can’t wait for the next episode. What a hero Neville Parker is becoming!”

Finally, a third simply commented: “Ah belle du jour, Camille bliss.”

What theories did the fans have?

Fans also had their own theories as to what was happening.

With the murder of the pianist connected to criminal Aidan Shawcross, who seemingly died 20 years ago, fans had questions.

Especially when Catherine was attacked.

One fan said: “Did Catherine do a deal with Shawcross for money, 20 years ago, in order to make sure she was able to give Camille a good life?

“Did she help him disappear?

“That story about her mother selling her soul to the devil as she was attacked was not random.”

Death In Paradise continues tonight (Friday February 5) at 9pm on BBC One.
