BBC announces cast for The Mallorca Files

Set among the vibrant international community of the eponymous Spanish island, The Mallorca Files will centre around the clash of personalities between a British and German 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.

Elen Rhys (Keeping Faith) plays self-confessed introverted Brit Miranda Blake, who takes her career (as well as everything else in life) seriously.

Julian Looman plays Miranda’s German partner-in-crime-solving, Max Winter – a classic extrovert who is unashamedly unconventional and not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve.

These two diametrically-opposed personalities set the stage for much of the humour and thrills of the series, which plays out against the backdrop of sun-drenched locations and the glamorous lifestyle of the Balearic island few Brits get to see.

Reluctantly overseeing the Anglo-German partnership is formidable Palma Police Chief Inez Villegas (casting to be announced) – 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.

The 10-episode series is set to air soon. The season will be made available in its entirety on the BBC iPlayer on the same day the first episode premieres on BBC One
