"Shipton Abbott continues to keep DI Humphrey Goodman and his team busy, with a baffling new crime each episode," reads the official season two synopsis. "From a death on a steam train to a missing teacher, the team have their work cut out. Even more so with Police HQ's threat of the local station house closure hanging over them – the pressure is on to get results.

"Meanwhile, Humphrey and Martha's journey to find their own version of a family continues as they explore the possibility of fostering. Martha's mother Anne throws herself into the world of online dating, and a well-meant gesture from Esther's daughter Zoe threatens to uncover a long-held secret."

Supporting cast members Jade Harison (CS Charlie Woods), Melina Sinadinou (Zoe), Eva Feiler (Lucy), Isaac Vincent-Norgate (Ryan) and Amalia Vitale (Hannah) are back – with Selwyn the Duck also confirmed for a screen return.

Beyond Paradise season 2 airs March 22 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 8pm.
