Annette Burgess, CEO of a boutique travel website, is murdered in her hotel room while on an outdoor team-building getaway with her colleagues.
With everyone in the small group of employees seeming to have no obvious alibis or motives, Humphrey and the team are forced to dig a little deeper.
However, it isn’t long before the detectives discover that Annette had an affair with her sister’s husband, Stuart Howe, and tensions were high with her assistant, Sandra Kendrick, who was filing a harassment case against Annette. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also soon revealed that the company’s Senior Account Executive, Dominic Claydon, is the victim’s long-lost son. The team realise that there are plenty of people who had an axe to grind with the fiery Annette. However, after a shock confession, is the case wrapped up as simple as that?
Meanwhile as Florence and Humphrey continue to get to grips with working alongside each other in the absence of Camille, will an unexpected call from home lead to trouble in paradise for Humphrey?

La Gazette du Sorcier was part of a small group chat with Matthew while he was at the Harry Potter convention in Paris this past weekend. A rough translation of the questions he was asked may be read below. If anyone can give us a more accurate one that would be great! Also, don’t forget to send in any of your photos!
If you could be any character, real or fictional, who would you choose?
He opens his eyes wide before exclaiming “Wow, that‘s a very good question! Difficult as … “ He begins by explaining that he has never played a real villain, so he would like to play a truly diabolical character. A friend is obsessed with the role of Hitler, he is keen to incarnate, but he does not try it too. He then said he did a lot of sports, he is very interested in rugby and one of his friends is professional rugby player Jimmy Peacock, who has a career and a very interesting story, so that he would love to play this role if the opportunity arose. It also really love the book The Mind Game, and if it was suitable, he would love to have a role in it. He repeated that it was a very good question, and that I should ask the other actors if I have the chance.
You shot in films and television; What changes in the way of playing and running?
He loves to turn in the playoffs, and that’s why he loves Bluestone 42, because as filming is much more spread out in time unlike a movie, with the different seasons, it really has time to construct, explore the character to evolve, just as in the theater, while for a movie, everything goes much faster.
Did you shoot a new film expected soon?
Matt is still attached to the biopic The Brontes, but does not know where the project stands. He has just returned from South Africa where he shot the third season of Bluestone 42, and promises that the first episode will be explosive. He also had a part in the series Death in Paradise, and will appear in a few episodes of the upcoming season. He added that the shooting took place in Guadeloupe, and that he found it strange the idea of it being in France and the fact that the address lists “Guadeloupe, France” because it has nothing to do with France that we imagine when we are abroad. He also had an interview for a film on the eve of the convention, but can’t talk about it yet.
You mentioned the theater, is it something you would want to do?
He will move to London next month, and is hoping that once there, he will have the opportunity to act at the West End, there are a lot of beautiful projects there constantly and the theater is a very special experience proximity with the public. He had refused a theater project last year because of the shooting of Bluestone 42, so he hopes that this year may make this project close to his heart.
Would he like to participate in a film project in the Harry Potter universe, like the Fantastic Beasts?
If there was a project with the character of Neville, where the character truly bring something to the story, where he is not there just for the nod, he would probably like to join, but he loves that it is currently, so it’s not something he particularly expects.
What was the funniest moment on the set of Harry Potter?
He begins by saying that from the moment Rupert Grint was around, he could be sure they were fun, but one of the biggest laughter occurred on the set of Prisoner of Azkaban, in the discussion between Snape and Dumbledore all students gathered in the great room for the night after the intrusion of Sirius Black. Everything had to be very quiet, but a whoopee cushion had been hidden in Daniel Radcliffe’s sleeping bag, which of course caused the hilarity, and they spent the rest of the day laughing, unable to return to their seriousness.
Are there certain reasons why you would deny a role?
He laughs he does not think he could accept to kill someone, after all depends on how it is paid! But seriously, he does not think there is anything that the rebuterait, if the script is really good, if that requirement is justified, it would not be his problem; He hated having to deny roles because of his filming the Death in Paradise series, but that’s part of the requirements of the trade.

Fans will recall that Matthew was in Guadalupe last month filming a secret project. We can now finally confirm that Matt will be guest starring in the BBC1’s Death in Paradise! For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it is a drama series about a detective inspector who is assigned to investigate a murder on the paradise island of Saint-Marie in the Caribbean. A description of the upcoming series (season for those of you in the US) is as follows:
As the series returns, the endearingly clumsy but brilliant DI Humphrey Goodman (Marshall) is struggling to contain his feelings for DS Camille Bordey (Sara Martins), who in turn finds herself battling the dating scene – all thanks to her well meaning mother. Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) attempts to hold the fort following the departure of Sergeant Fidel Best (Gary Carr), who has left Saint Marie for a new job on a neighbouring island.
But Comm. Selwyn Patterson (Don Warrington) is keen to step up and exercise his investigative muscles once again, much to Dwayne’s frustration. The police department also welcomes new recruit, Sergeant Florence Cassell, played by popular French actress Josephine Jobert (Sous Le Soleil De Saint-Tropez).
The fourth series will begin airing sometime in 2015, we do not know when Matt’s episode(s) will air.
