I am looking for a mini series most probably called "dark side of the
sun". It took place in malta and had a villain who was an
undead/immortal maltese knight. The mini-series were most probably
british in origin. I could find no matches in At the end,
the heroine had the illusion of being pregnant with the child of the
villain, with all symptoms thereof, although she was not carrying any
child. If you could direct me to any site which offers that title or a
script of it, I'd be grateful

The series you refer to is indeed named "The Dark Side of the Sun". 
It was released in 1983 by the BBC and consisted of 6 episodes.
Unfortunately, the series was never released on video or DVD so it's
impossible to get an official release.

However, the series was based on the book also titled "The Dark Side
of the Sun" which was written by Hugh Miller and Michael J Bird.
The series appears to be almost exactly the same as the original book.
I've tried to find a place where you could buy this book but it is out
of print and nobody seems to have any left in their stock.

I did find some used copy's of this book which you can buy for as low
as $4.5:

information you need, don't hesitate to ask for a clarification!

The answer is not strictly correct - the book was based on the TV
series not the other way around.

Full information on the series (and all the others written by
scriptwriter Michael J Bird) can be found at
