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.

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.

Who has been cast in The Tourist?

The Fall's Jamie Dornan leads the cast as the unnamed man, alongside him Danielle Macdonald (Unbelievable, Dumplin') stars as Helen Chambers, a new-to-the-job probationary constable. Lord of The Rings star Hugo Weaving has been cast to play Agent Lachlan Rogers, a tough and highly regarded detective inspector leading the Major Crime Unit and Line of Duty's Shalom Brune-Franklin will star as Luci, a local waitress who inadvertently gets swept up in the story.

When is The Tourist being released?

It's still early days for the project, casting is still in progress and filming reportedly isn't set to start for a few months, so we're going to have a while to wait.
