Ralf Little, 41, has become known for his role as DI Neville Parker on Death In Paradise having joined the show in season nine. As the tenth series of the show comes to an end, Ralf has since revealed the cast also filmed an alternative ending.
He explained: “I’ll tell you something interesting we actually shot two endings.
“We shot one, that’s left as it is, and we shot another ending, and I’m not going to tell you what the other ending looked like, because I’m not going to give you any clues!”
The actor went on to talk of how the producers of the show debated over the two endings although thought the one used in the finale was “more interesting”.
While chatting to HELLO! in a Q&A alongside his co-stars Tobi Bakare, Joséphine Jobert and Tahj Miles, he added: “But there was some debate about whether the ending was going to be left as it was, on a cliffhanger, or to try and resolve in whatever direction… I’m not going to give you any clues!
“But in the end, obviously we decided that the cliffhanger was more interesting and I think it was probably right. Everyone is going to be asking!”
Josephine Jobert, who plays DS Florence Cassell, went on to talk of how fans of the show are going to be “furious” amid the revelation.
Death in Paradise first hit our screens in 2011 and two decades on continues to be a hit.
Amid its 20 year anniversary, producers have since confirmed the series will continue for another two series.
