Set amongst the vibrant international community of the eponymous Spanish island, The Mallorca Files centres around the clash of personalities between a British (MIRANDA – ELEN RHYS) and German (MAX – JULIAN LOOMAN) detective who have very different approaches to policing. Yet despite – or perhaps because of -their very different approaches, the sleuths form a perfect complementary partnership as they seek to solve a new crime on the island each week.
Reluctantly overseeing the Anglo-German partnership is formidable Palma Police Chief Inez Villegas – a woman who doesn’t suffer fools (gladly or otherwise), and who ensures the two foreign detectives are kept busy by handing them the cases her own team don’t want to touch.
In the line-up to bring The Mallorca Files to life are a high-calibre production crew of exceptional pedigree. They include Bryn Higgins (Endeavour, Black Mirror, Electricity) who leads a slate of directors including Charlie Palmer (Poldark, Doctor Who, Silent Witness) Rob Evans (Mr Selfridge, Granchester, Our Girl,) and Gordon Anderson (Shetland, Lovesick, Shameless).
