Reportedly, Marshall admits he wants to return to the UK, in order to spend more time with his wife Hannah and two young children. He admitted that it became so challenging for him to film in the Caribbean every year.

Talking to Radio Times, he said,

"Every year except last year we took Thomas out with us. The only reason they didn't come out last year was because my daughter was born and she was only three months old when filming started. Thomas has basically spent half his life in the Caribbean. Every year he went to the same nursery in Guadeloupe. But now it's time for him to put on scholastic shackles and toe the line."

He added,

"It's something my wife and I discussed three or four years ago. When I was first offered the job, my son was six months old and my wife wasn't working, so it was a very easy decision. We decided I would do Death in Paradise for a few years until it became impractical. It was always quite a finite thing. I certainly didn't hide it from anyone I work with."

Eventually, he revealed that he agreed with his wife that he'd leave the show once their kids start their school life.

To his role of Humphrey Goodman, he leaves behind a wonderful message, proudly admiring;

"Humphrey was socially awkward and clumsy but also brilliant, I'll miss him but it's time to hand over to someone new and spend more time with my family."

Later, after Kris quit the show, it was announced that he will be replaced by Ardal O'Hanlan, known for his work in Father Ted
