The Mallorca files on BBC One: what is it about?
The Mallorca Files is a carefree cop show on the Spanish island of Mallorca.
This is followed by an unlikely double blow to Miranda and her police partner Max – she is a firm British policewoman and he is a relaxed German.
Yes, they are total opposites!
The series first aired on weekday afternoons in 2019 on BBC One.
A second series was commissioned in November 2019 before the first episode even aired.
The second series was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elen Rhys and Julian Looman of the Mallorca Files: are they together in real life?
Sad news for her fans, Elen and Julian are not together in real life.
But it would be a big turn in the story if they were, right?
Elen is reportedly single, but she has a young son named Wilf.
Julian, 35, is with vocal trainer Annemieke Van Dam, 38.
They have two children together.
Will Miranda and Max get together?
In the first season, Max has a girlfriend named Carmen.
Nevertheless, the chemistry between him and his police partner Miranda is tangible.
Well, they say opposites attract!
At the end of the first series, Miranda got the chance to return to the UK on a tempting promotion, but she chose to stay and work on the island.
Unsurprisingly, actress Elen admits that she and her co-star watched Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis do research on Moonlighting.
In a recent interview, the creator Dan Sefton addressed the will they dynamize on the show.
He said: “[We] just going to see how to do it. We’ll see if they get together or not. I don’t know – I honestly don’t know!
“A lot comes from Elen and Julian’s performances. The writing team will work closely with them and we’ll see what they do and we’ll try to pick things up and edit them when we can.
“Hopefully it’s playful and fun and who knows what’s going to happen?”
So let’s guess then?
Where are the Mallorca files filmed?
As the name suggests, The Mallorca Files is set on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca.
The old town of Palma in particular was used for some of the street scenes of the show.
Much of the opening episode of the second season takes place in the Teatre Principal de Palma, Palma’s main theater.
The Mallorca Files series two
The second series begins with a world-famous tenor who was stabbed to death in the famous Drach Caves.
However, a motive for the murder cannot be fathomed at first, as star José Castana seemed to be adored by everyone …
In the second episode, Max and Miranda investigate a missing person case by unearthing a series of historical murders that link a mass grave to a blurred private eye.
Phil Daniels guest stars.
The Mallorca files are broadcast Monday through Friday afternoons at 1.45 p.m. on BBC One.
