A shipping tycoon’s death forces Neville (Ralf Little) to change his Christmas plans and stay in Saint Marie. The death looks like a suicide, but when a cab driver (Mathew Baynton) gets a message about murder in a Christmas card, the team must take another look. With a fab guest cast, the return of Officer Dwayne Myers (Danny John-Jules) and the long-awaited reveal of what happened after Neville declared his true feelings to Florence, this feature-length special is a festive feast with all the trimmings.
