The wildly popular British series, The Mallorca Files has just launched season 2 and now Canadians can get a taste of the series on BritBox!
The Mallorca Files stars Elen Rhys as Detective Constable Miranda Blake. As fans know well from season one, her relationship with partner DC Max Winter (Julian Looman) may be a bit combative. But their partnership is a proven recipe for success.
The stylish crime-busting duo are back, and Miranda is finally starting to put down roots. And just in time too, because there’s no shortage of murky cases waiting to be cracked.
With even more dramatic landscapes and a host of special guest stars, it’s a sizzling return for this exhilarating detective drama. Some guest stars, by the way, include Phil Daniels (Outlaws) and Kacey Ainsworth (Grantchester). Other guest stars include Graeme Hawley (Peaky Blinders) and Craig Kelly (Queer as Folk).
Shot entirely on location in Mallorca each episode is riddled with gorgeous views and exciting crime busting drama.
Viewers of The Mallorca Files might recognise Elen from her other previous roles in film and television. In the world of TV, the 37-year-old has appeared in other popular shows such as Silent Witness, Casualty and BBC drama Ordinary Lies.
Film wise, Rhys played the part of Gwen in 2011 movie Panic Button. In 2013, she even had a part as a flight attendant in the Brad Pitt film World War Z.
Elen has been part of the show since 2019 and stars alongside Julian Looman, Maria Fernández-Ache and Tábata Cerezo. Elen and her castmates had reason to celebrate as the second season’s viewing figures doubled in recent times due to the lockdown. Announcing the exciting news on Instagram, the actress wrote: “DOUBLE FIGURES!! What lovely news to wake up to. To each and every one of you who tuned in to Series 2 and continued to watch, THANK YOU. It means the world to us that we have your support. Thank you.”
