You are quite right Teacu. One of the pitfalls of retirement - I was thinking it was Sunday today. Have changed my post.

Just watched the first one.

Palma Airport, the front at Palma, Palma backstreets by the Cathedral, all in the first few minutes.

Then the road to Victoria/L'Hermitage and Alcanada golf course featured..

Not sure the programme was that great but didn't care, was too busy location spotting!

I think it could be this one:

Once when we dropped some friends off for a flight, we had about 3 hours to spare before ours so drove out here.

Again i think the long straight road they were on was the one we drove on.

By the way i only watched it cos Jeremy Kyle had finished and Countdown hadn't yet started!

I can now understand why it is scheduled for afternoon television. The scenes of the island were great but the story, acting and the music was pretty dire. It felt like a throwback to a 1960/70's ITV crime series.

Well, As a Mallorca lover it's worth a watch for the scenery, but as for the production quality and storyline, I wouldn't be allowed to put into words what I really think. Suffice to say it aspires to the level of junior drama school.
