Death in Paradise fans eagerly tuned into the recent Christmas episode of the hit BBC comedy-drama series in hopes that Neville (played by Ralf Little) and Florence (Josephine Jobert) had at last confirmed their feelings for each other, but the pair faced another hurdle as communication issues arose. Speaking to Express.co.uk and other media, the cast talked about the upcoming series and hinted that Neville and Florence could hit it off as the perfect couple. Will they soon get engaged?

The Christmas episode saw Florence video call DI Neville from France, and he asked her out on a date.

However, Neville’s screen froze and the pair couldn’t continue chatting.

At the end of the festive episode, Florence admitted to Catherine (Elizabeth Bourgine) that she had heard everything but couldn’t decide what to do.

When asked if Neville would make a good boyfriend to Florence if things did work out, Ralf told Express.co.uk and other media: “I think Neville would be a lovely boyfriend, I think he’d be incredibly kind and sweet.”

The actor continued: “I think he can probably get a little bit annoying sometimes, with his peculiarities and stuff.

“But actually, as the series has gone on, he’s managed to overcome a lot.

“I guess you might say some of his irritating traits (are gone).

“He’s more willing to allow himself to be out of his comfort zone and just let the chips fall where they may.

“And all of that, I think, has made him into a much stronger person.

“So he’d probably be a pretty good boyfriend – he’d be incredibly loyal, very kind and caring.”

Speaking more about Neville’s character, Ralf explained: “We’ve established who this guy is and what he’s good at and what he isn’t.

“That said, you’ve always got to challenge characters, otherwise they get too repetitive.”

Could Neville finally have grown enough to be ready for marriage?

He and Florence’s will-they-won’t-they relationship has kept fans hooked, and it may finally be the right time for the pair to make it official if they do decide to get together.

When asked about what might happen with the relationship, Ralf commented: “I mean, people really want it to be a thing.

“I think you always do, don’t you? When I was a kid, you just wanted [The X Files characters] Mulder and Scully to get together.

“It was the overarching thing that you really wanted.

“But I guess that just means that we’re doing our job right and the writers are doing their job right and they’re creating characters that people really respond to and that people really care about.

“Those two characters, regardless of where they end up and where they’re going to go, they’re already incredibly important to each other.

“She’s personally helped Neville overcome so much that he was struggling with that’s helped him to stay on the island.”

With Neville seemingly ready to take the plunge, could he show his growth by proposing to Florence?

Death in Paradise returns on Friday at 9pm on BBC One.
