Viewers were left hanging after Neville turned up at Florence’s door (Picture: BBC)
Death In Paradise viewers were left furious after the finale of the 10th series left Neville Parker and Florence Cassell’s relationship on a cliffhanger.
The last episode of the series saw Neville debating whether to finally make the first move and tell Florence how he feels about her… but the episode abruptly ended before viewers found out if the pair got together or not.
Neville (Ralph Little) was seen knocking on Florence’s (Josephine Jobert) door 20 minutes before she was due to be picked up for a date with someone else, as he fumbled and faltered trying to get his words out.
Stumbling over his words, Neville tells her: ‘Well, er.. the thing is… I had something I wanted to.. to tell you.’
Florence replies: ‘What, sir?’, to which Neville responds: ‘Well, what I wanted to say was…’
Cue a few lingering looks and knowing smiles between the pair and… the screen cut to black before the credits started rolling, leaving the ending unresolved.

Viewers had been looking forward to a resolution to the storyline and hoping to see the two of them get together at long last, so were understandably fuming that they will have to wait until the next series airs to find out what happened and if Neville even asked Florence out.
They tweeted: ‘Evil beyond belief!’, ‘Joker! I can’t wait a year I need to know what happens’ and ‘Fuming with that death in paradise ending, sort it out’.
Others added: ‘Don’t we have enough to put up with? A little hour of joyous escapism and @bbc has to go and do that ????’ and ‘Nooo such a cliffhanger! Only a year to wait.’
Some viewers started the countdown until the next series in January, joking: ‘Oh FGS with that ending @deathinparadise how mean are you to keep us hanging!! Oh well, only a year to find out what actually happens I guess!’
Roll on January 2022.
