In Written in Murder, DI Jack Mooney (played by Ardal O’Hanlon) is called to investigate the death of a famous novelist, Frank O’ Toole (James Faulkner), whose body was found washed up on the beach of Saint Marie.
Initially, his wife Valerie (Imogen Stubbs), agent Larry (Simon Callow) and research assistant Gilly were held on suspicion of murder.
Gilly was accomplished novelist Frank O’Toole’s s research assistant and protégé. They met in the bookshop where Gilly worked in Stoke, England and she instantly fell head over heels in love with him.
Frank invited Gilly to stay with him on the island of Saint Marie as part of a writing retreat and Gilly agreed instantly leaving behind her finance Dean in England.
During her time on the island, Gilly began working on her second novel – Paradise Mislaid.

“But as the spotlight turns on Frank’s closest friends and family and secrets are exposed, Jack uncovers a murder plot worthy of one of his novels…”
Speaking to WhatsonTV about her time on Death in Paradise, Gibson said: “Oh it was amazing.
“How fabulous to be able to have a walk down the beach every morning before work, and as we were all at the same hotel, it was even nicer to have cocktails on the beach after a long sweaty day on set.
“We also went on a brilliant boat trip and drank rum punch in the middle of the ocean.
“It really is a beautiful island, I met the most wonderful people and I have the loveliest memories.”
In the episode, Gibson appeared alongside fellow guest stars Ginny Holder, Steve Oram, Imogen Stubbs, James Faulkner and Simon Callow.
