The Mallorca Files

The Mallorca Files on BBC One.

27-11-2018Ultima Hora

The Mallorca Files was a big hit locally in Majorca and has broken BBC One daytime viewing records with over one million viewers for episode 1.

Episode 2:King of the Mountains sees Miranda (Elen Rhys) and Max (Julian Looman) take advantage of Ines’ (Miranda Fernandez-Ache) absence to investigate the disappearance of top Majorcan cyclist Esteban Domenech (Rafael Cebrian) during a routine training session.

However, their investigation creates more questions than it answers, with fingers pointed at Esteban’s team boss Franco Martinez (Philippe Smolikowski), his former coach Terry Davis (Sean Campion) and fellow teammate Phillipe Tromeur (Alaa Safi).

When a hot lead turns out to be nothing more than a red herring and Esteban’s model wife, Clara (Lucia Guerrero) receives a ransom demand, the tangled web of deceit grows thicker, prompting Miranda to investigate further. She uncovers a shocking truth, mistaken identity and plans for murder.

Away from the case, the rivalry between Miranda and Max grows when – inspired by their case – they challenge one another to a cycle race. Frustrated by Max’s boast of his cycling prowess, Miranda pushes herself to the limit to try and beat him. Will she succeed?

Agree with you Yogi (per usual) but actually there’s one daytime TV show I love, and actually has proven viewing figures to show that not 1 (as alleged for Mallorca Files) but 2 million people watch it every day - The Repair Shop on BBC 1. Good, old fashioned, heartwarming stories, fantastic, friendly craftspeople and not a so-called celebrity in sight. Just decent human beings. No wonder it has been such a hit.

Worse than the first episode, if that is possible. No way am I going to waste my time watching episode 3. The Daily Mail gives it 5/5. How is that possible?

How bad can it be, that I would rather avoid watching another episode and miss fabulous views of my favourite place? Yes.......that bad!

God help us, it's on every day. Might look it up on the iPlayer later but daytime TV is a waste of valuable time. And I would say that it's been getting panned not getting mixed reviews, judging from the comments previously posted. your synopsis gives much of the plot away, why are you doing that? ( if it can be called a plot ). It would seem that this programme is really just a travelogue advert for the island ( great) for people who like this kind of stuff ( oh!). I'd call that a mixed review!
