Death in Paradise introduced DS Neville Parker (played by Ralf Little) as the new head of the Honore Police. In the final episode fans thought the episode may have teased some growing romance between him and Madeleine Dumas (Aude Legastelois).
Could there be romance for Neville and Madeleine?
The ninth season of Death in Paradise has now come to an end on the BBC.
The final episode saw the team deal with a new case as well as follow Neville Parker as he made a decision over whether to stay on the island.
After he was given the all-clear to fly, he went to airport to head back to Manchester.
However, at the last moment he decided to stay on the island, coming back to his team.
As well as making this decision, the series also introduced the growing friendship between Neville and Madeleine.
Initially frustrated by each other, the finale featured a number of moments of them getting to know each other.

This included the pair having a heart-to-heart at Neville’s going-away party.
Sitting on the beach, he told her: “My life Madeleine is quite boring, it’s very boring actually.
“When you have issues like I have, it becomes easier to play it safe all the time.
“Until you end up spending every day of your life just avoiding everything really.”
Madeleine asked whether he was happy living his life like this or wanted more.
When she left him laughing on the beach she touched his arm before he watched her leave.
This moment has left fans wondering whether they could be some potential romance brewing between the pair.

Posting on Reddit, fan namegeeky added: “Was anybody else sensing that the writers may try to create a romance between Madeleine (impressive fighting from her btw) and Neville?
“I think that might be cute if it’s done well.”
However, not all fans were so convinced with @Kazzie_P_60 writing: “Please @deathinparadise bring back Humphrey and Camille/ Jack and Florence.
“The new pairing of Neville & Madeleine isn’t working. Zero personality or chemistry.
“Thank God for JP, Ruby and Uncle Selly as they’re the only ones worth watching lately #deathinparadise”

If the show were to pursue this storyline in another series, this wouldn’t be the first romance between colleagues on the show.
Fans will remember how Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) and Camille Bordey (Sara Martins) developed feelings for one another in earlier seasons.
However, it seems like viewers will just have to wait for season 10 to be released to find out what is next for the characters.
So far all actor Ralf Little has confirmed about the next series is his desire to learn French.
He told Metro Online: “I’ve got roughly four months. I want to get my French in order, obviously [Neville] speaks English but it would be nice to speak French on the island.”
Death in Paradise is available to stream on BBC iPlayer now.
