Death in Paradise spoilers

In the third episode tonight (January 23), D.I. Jack Mooney and the team ride onto another murder mystery when the Tour des Antilles cycling race comes to Saint Marie. The sports event quickly turns sinister when Xavier Prince (Ashley Byam), Team Storm’s best cyclist, is found dead halfway through the race.

Whilst evidence initially points to Xavier having crashed on one of the most dangerous sections of the course, Jack is troubled by a piece of fabric torn from a Team Storm shirt. However, with all of the other teammates' shirts in perfect condition, including Xavier’s, suspicion falls upon the rest of the cycling squad.

As the investigation goes deeper, we find out more about the underlying team dynamics at play and discover that there is conflict between the riders - as one of them holds on to a sensitive secret.

Meanwhile, JP re-evaluates police protocol when a chance encounter leaves him conflicted, and Ruby and Madeleine take time to unwind, as a win for the Saint Marie team calls for celebrations on the island.

Death in Paradise airs tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
