Does BritBox have Death in Paradise season 11?

Death in Paradise season 11 was made available on BritBox on Tuesday, 3 May 2022, two months after its natural television run in Europe.

BritBox has created a niche for itself by being one of the leading English paid subscription video-on-demand platforms used by viewers internationally to watch the best of British television.

One of the most popular crime mystery dramas is BBC’s One hit series, Death in Paradise. Having concluded its eleventh season earlier in the year, US fans of the series could not wait to get access to the series via BritBox.

The series lands on the platform after its initial television run a few days after or within a week of its television conclusion. But instead, it arrived on the streaming service in May 2022, following its conclusion at the end of February 2022.

Death in Paradise’s unique selling point

Death in Paradise premiered in 2011, and whilst it joins a slew of other crime mystery dramas, it does have a unique selling point.

Unlike most murder mystery crime dramas, which are usually based on or inspired by a series of novels, Death in Paradise challenged the convention.

This is as the television series inspired the book series of the same name, instead. The books are written by Robert Thorogood, who was also the creator of Death in Paradise, the series.

Currently, the series includes A Meditation on Murder, The Killing of Polly Carter, Death Knocks Twice, and Murder in the Caribbean.

Does BritBox have Death in Paradise season 11?

Death in Paradise’s eleventh season returned to BBC One in January 2022 with eight-episode, which ran until February 2022.

The season was preceded by the release of the series’ first-ever Christmas special which premiered on BBC One in December 2022.

It is commonly understood that it usually takes a few days to a week for Death in Paradise to land on BritBox after its first initial television run on BBC One. But this time, the series steered a bit too far away from the expectation, as it took just over two months to arrive on BritBox.

The series concluded its eleventh season on Friday, 25 February 2022, but it was eventually availed on BritBox just over two months following its conclusion on BBC One. This is as the series arrived on the streaming platform on Tuesday, 3 May 2022.

The reason for this is that the series was first released in the US on television on PBS on Friday, 29 April 2022.

Therefore, by the time it was available to US television viewers, its availability on BritBox coincided with the usual television timeframe run of the series, despite the fact that BritBox made the entire season available all at once.

This means that US audiences can now enjoy the crime murder mystery on BritBox if they have an Amazon Prime Video subscription with the streaming service available as an add-on, for the additional cost of $6.99 per month.

Death in Paradise season 11: Premise

Death in Paradise did not steer away from its set premise of the team investigating one murder mystery in every episode.

While the lives and times of our main cast remains the glue that holds the story together, this season’s biggest question was how the series was going to resolve its tenth season, after DI Neville Parker, played by Ralf Little, confirmed that he had feelings for DS Florence Cassell, played by Joséphine Jobert.

The Christmas special only further fuelled this premise as it did little to push the narrative forward.

Is Death in Paradise: Christmas Special part of season 11?

Death in Paradise celebrated its tenth season and year milestone since the series premiered. This was when the series, the day after Christmas, released its first ever Christmas special.

The episode is considered part of the season eleven canon as it advanced the story closer to answering the cliffhanger of season 10, which was whether Neville would finally share his feelings for Florence or not.

He does this on video call, but due to buffering and signal problems in their call, viewers are left unsure whether Florence heard his confession until the beginning of season 11.

If you are already this far in the article, there is no need to ruin the main plot of season 11, which is based on whether Florence and Neville end up together. What can be shared is the simple but equally suggestive answer, “yes and no”.

However, the series did try to outdo itself as some of the cases in the season include a skydiving episode, a kidnapping, a death in the middle of a concert, a case at a rehab clinic, and an episode that is completely centred around a chess match.
