The Tourist TV series is the latest big budget drama from the BBC. Set in the Australian outback, it stars Jamie Dornan as the victim of a car crash who wakes up in a hospital in the middle of nowhere and finds he can’t remember who he is. With high production values and the full series already online to binge, make sure you know how to watch The Tourist wherever you are.
Written by brothers Harry Williams and Jack Williams, who also created The Missing and Baptiste, The Tourist opens with Dornan getting chased off an outback road by a truck apparently looking to run down him and his little hatchback car.
Just when when he thinks he’s escaped his faceless assailant in their over-sized vehicle, Dornan is t-boned to the point of amnesia and must spend the next 6 x 60-minute episodes trying to work out who he is before his past catches up with him.
