- “I thought going home was what I wanted, but then I drank rum and danced on a beach.””
- ―Neville Parker
Detective Inspector Neville Parker took over from Detective Inspector Jack Mooney on a temporary basis, then was deemed too ill to fly home and when the time finally came he decided he wanted to do something with his life and stay on Saint-Marie.
Neville Parker is branded as allergic to everything and sensitive to everything. This includes the sun, mosquitos, bugs in general, sand, and at a time he believed it was Harry causing him to flare up and tried to get rid of him but couldn’t bring himself to do it.
Commissioner Selwyn Patterson has not yet warmed up to DI Parker. That is not surprising as Parker mistook Selwyn as his taxi driver in his first episode and since then has been generally disliked by the Comissioner.
