Ever since The Fall ended five years ago we've been crossing our fingers for another Jamie Dornan thriller series, and it looks like finally we're in luck. The BBC has announced that Dornan will star in an upcoming thriller called The Tourist, an eerie drama set in the Australian outback.
Here's everything we know about The Tourist.
Have we had any teasers for The Tourist?
The BBC revealed our first look at Jamie in character in mid-May 2021, adding more detail about the plot. "Full of shocking, surprising, funny and brutal turns, The Tourist is set in a world populated by quirky, enigmatic characters and off-beat comedy punctuates high-stakes action," they explained.
"At its heart however, is a story of self-discovery with a ticking timebomb underneath: as The Man starts to uncover the mystery of who he was, he’s also forced to ask who he is now - and fast. Will he unlock the secrets of his identify before those who are trying to kill him catch up with him?"
Now, months later in December 2021 the BBC has released a series of new images plus a very exciting trailer, giving us our first chance to see the cast in full thriller mode.
What's The Tourist going to be about?
According to an official BBC synopsis the mysterious thriller follows a "British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback, being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. An epic cat-and-mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in hospital, hurt, but somehow alive. Except he has no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man's search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback."
According to show creators we can expect endless twists and turns in the plot, along with "quirky, enigmatic characters and off-beat black comedy." Sign us up.
