The new Death in Paradise series divided viewers last night as it returned to screens with a different theme tune.
As the show got underway, viewers couldn’t help noticing that the theme tune was a bit different.
What did Death in Paradise viewers say about the theme music?
And not everyone liked the new music, with some claiming it had ‘ruined’ the intro.
“The altered theme tune for #DeathInParadise… just no… WHY?!?!” demanded one.
“I really wish @deathinparadise hadn’t meddled with the title music,” a second tweeted.
Similarly, a third put: “The most criminal thing about #DeathInParadise this week is the destruction of the classic theme music.”
“Is that different opening music on #DeathInParadise?!” asked a fourth, adding: “This is a travesty! Who do I complain to?”
I really wish Death In Paradise hadn’t meddled with the title music.
“Wait, what, the music?!” said a fifth, shocked. “Nooo bring back the original! #DeathInParadise.”

What happened in Death in Paradise?
In the first episode of the new series, Neville had to figure out who had murdered a TV journalist who was seemingly on the cusp of a big expose.
Her driver found her dead in her swimming pool after hearing screams and a scuffle, however not everything was as it seemed.
As a result of the investigation, the guilty party turned out to be popular Saint Marie TV host Garfield Tourné (Patrick Robinson), who murdered the reporter to prevent her from exposing him as a sexual predator.
Additionally, he had conspired with his daughter to cover it up.
