An Unhelpful Aid is the sixth episode of Series 1 of Death in Paradise.

With Richard struck down by a tropical disease and Camille in Paris, it is left to Dwayne and Fidel to solve the apparently impossible murder of a local diver. As if their job isn't tough enough, they also have to contend with holidaying British cop DS Angela Young, who proves to be even more annoying than Richard.


When Detective Inspector Richard Poole is bedridden with a tropical fever and Detective Sergeant Camille Bordey is on an IT course in Paris, Officers Dwayne Myers and Fidel Best have to solve the murder of a local diver. Commissioner Selwyn Patterson puts in charge Detective Sergeant Angela Young, who is holidaying on the island, and whose eccentric behaviour is even more annoying than Richard's, as well as less effective. Dwayne and Fidel go behind her back supplying case details to Richard who is being looked after by Camille's mother Catherine Bordey and her chicken soup.
