The Mallorca Files

BBC One 2019

Amongst the vibrant international community of the eponymous Spanish island, a British and a German detective with very different approaches to policing have a clash of personalities. 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.

Awesome series. My wife and I hope it returns for a 3rd season.


The writing of this show is so bad, that it could actually be on purpouse. Its a good show to fall asleep too though - you can just continue with another episode the next evening without having the feeling to have missed sth.


Awful show with extremely bad writing and almost as bad acting. The Brits make amazing shows, but also dogs like thins one. I gave it 15 mins before dumping it. 1/10

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
