“I think it’s really, really fulfilling and flattering to have been able to do it for as long as I have. Like Neville, I joked about him having his feet under the table but still having his challenges, this is a challenging job. It is beautiful, but it does have its challenges. It’s exhausting. It’s physically demanding. It’s relentless in terms of every day you’re out there and it’s hot and tiring and mentally tiring. Like when you work hard. We do. But I just love it.”
Ralf opened up about the ‘honour’
The Two Pints of Lager actor continued: “This island is fully home for me now as well, because I spend so much time between England and America as well in my actual life because of my other half, by a huge margin the place I spend most time at during the year now is Guadeloupe so this is more my home than anywhere, and I just love it.”
Ralf will return as Neville for the upcoming Christmas special and season 12, where it appears that love is finally on the horizon for the detective. We can’t wait to tune in!
