With so many discussion points and open threads, BBC crime series Death in Paradise will leave a big hole in the schedules. So what replaces it next week?
And, more importantly than that, when oh when will season 11 hit our screens?!
Last night (February 18), Death in Paradise fans were left “devastated” after fan favourite JP exited the island in the season 10 finale.
Now fans are demanding that former fave Dwayne (played by Danny John-Jules) return to the show to replace him.
What happened in the Death In Paradise season 10 final?
After another perplexing case, all eyes turned to JP (Tobi Bakare) who was offered a new job at the end of the last episode.
He decided to take it, but his police buddy Marlon found the news difficult to cope with.
When Marlon punched Tarone, JP stepped in and took the blame for his mentor’s behaviour.
However, Commissioner Patterson knew the real truth and told JP he was “proud”.
All that being said, it still meant that JP was to leave the island.
I’m going to miss JP , he was one of my fave characters from the show.
Also i was shouting at the tv, might be one of the cruelest tv cliffhangers ever, making us wait a whole year. So mean lol #deathinparadise

Who do viewers want to replace JP?
With JP’s exit there was only one person viewers wanted to see replace him on the Saint Marie police force – Dwayne Myers, played by Danny John-Jules.
Viewers last saw Dwayne at the end of series seven, when he reunited with his father and went off on a round-the-world trip.
Now they want him back.
If JP is leaving can we have Dwayne back please??
One fan wrote on Twitter: “If JP is leaving can we have Dwayne back please?? #DeathInParadise.”
