DEATH in Paradise fans have pled managers to ‘bring Ruby Patterson back’ after her ‘frustrating’ replacement was met with reaction.
Ruby – played by Shyko Amos – was last seen on screen in series nine of the hit BBC police procedural after 2 years in the role.
It was revealed ahead of series 10 that she would not be returning to the function, and in last night’s episode, audiences were presented to her replacement, Marlon Pryce.
Marlon (Tahj Miles) was a wheeler dealership on Saint Marie, offering pirate DVDs to tourists among other dubious exploits, much to Sergeant JP Hooper’s inconvenience.
Regardless of being put in a cell at the police station, Marlon was then exposed to be the brand-new trainee cop by Commissioner Selwyn Patterson as part of a young transgressors rehabilitation scheme, much to JP’s discouragement.
Marlon would now be dealing with JP, replacing Ruby, and this annoyed some audiences.
One wrote on Twitter: “I miss Ruby #DeathInParadise.”
Another included: “I don’t like this young boy, I desire Ruby back #DeathInParadise.”
A third tweeted: “I understood it would be Marlon. I currently miss out on Ruby.”
Discussing her departure from the program in 2015, Shyko said: “Thank you for giving Ruby a possibility since at first you really didn’t.

” You were rough on me the first number of episodes. I remember one of the articles, ‘Ruby knocked, she’s awful.’
” My little heart practically broke. She most likely was a bit bothersome in fact, however just thank you for getting behind her since it was really nerve-racking doing it after Danny [John-Jules]”.
