It is a splendid series that continues to gain value over time.
Eusebio Poncela is the actor who plays in the TV series the character of Pepe Carvalho, to whom Manuel Vazquez Montalbán has given life through his novels. In this case, the basis of the script is constituted by eight unpublished stories in which the writer portrays the typical characteristics of Carvalho, which are not the topical ones of the classic detectives. The protagonist of the novels "Me Maté a Kennedy", "Tatuaje", "Los Mares Del Sur", "Los Pájaros de Bangkok" and "La Rosa De Alejandría" ... interprets eight chapters corresponding to other short novels written in the Years 1980-81. The screenplays have been made by Domènec Font.

The other titles are: "La Dama Inacabada", "El Golpe De Estado", "La Curva De La Muerte", "Pygmalion", "Go-go girl", "Recién Casados" and "El Mar, Cristal Oscuro". Vázquez Montalbán confided in the election of Eusebio Poncela by the artistic trajectory of the actor, was able to make characters as different as those of "Los Gozos Y Las Sombras" or "El Arreglo".
"Las Aventuras De Pepe Carvalho" are eight stories and different arguments in which Carvalho, by his profession, contemplates the reality with distance and is directed by Adolfo Aristarain. It was filmed in "Barrio Chino" and other places of Barcelona, habitual frame in the That the literary personage develops.Minorca and the south of France will be other of the areas in which Pepe Carvalho will carry out some of his investigations.
The ambiguity and typology of the character are different in each one of its episodes, but where this one appears more complete is in "Los Pájaros De Bangkok", and in "La Rosa De Alejandría". The sense of humor and the lucidity are other of the peculiarities of the detective that appears like a personage at the same time hard and tender, and deeply complex in its interior life.
Among the actors and actresses involved in "Las Aventuras De Pepe Carvalho" are Alicia Sánchez, in the role of "Charo", Assumpta Serna, Ovidi Montllor, Mercedes Sampietro, Cecilia Roig, Alvaro de Luna, José Bódalo and Simón Andreu, Un Extraordinary cast.
