She explained: “When she gets a call from the commissioner, asking her to come back, I believe she didn’t hesitate one second to see the crew again.
“[And] to see her island, which reminds her of a lot of difficult moments but also lots of wonderful moments with the team.
“So I was very excited about this, and I’m really proud of her.
“And the thing is I think she’s still struggling because when you lose someone that you love so much, I mean, do you ever recover?
“I don’t think so. But the fact that she meets Neville [Parker], who is very special too in his way and I think like she wants to take care of him because she sees the potential.
“And I think maybe it’s a way for her to think of something else and to get closer to somebody else.
“And I think their relationship will help her to heal and to move on.”
Fans will certainly be excited to see just how this plays out when the show begins once again.
Death in Paradise begins on Thursday, January 7 at 9pm on BBC One.
