Former Captain of School Ben Starr is set to appear in the BBC’s long-running series ‘Death in Paradise’.

After leaving QEH in 2006, Ben has appeared in the likes of ‘Jamestown’, ‘Dickensian’, ‘Medici’, and ‘Knightfall’, and will now be a guest star in the eleventh series of ‘Death in Paradise’ which airs in January 2022.

The upcoming season, which stars Ralf Little and Josephine Jobert, will include a murder on a golf course, and the death of a skydiver.
