What is The Tourist (TV) About?
The Tourist unfolds the story of 'The Man', portrayed by Jamie Dornan, who regains consciousness in the vastness of the Australian outback, only to find himself suffering from amnesia following a car accident. With no recollection of his past or his own identity, he embarks on a perilous journey to unveil the truth, chased by figures from the life he can't remember. The intriguing narrative is intensified by the involvement of Probationary Constable Helen Chambers, played by Danielle Macdonald, and other characters who intersect with The Man's quest for answers. Debuted on BBC One in the UK, then on Stan in Australia, and later on HBO Max in the US, the series received international distribution by All3Media. The gripping storyline, combined with the atmospheric setting of the Australian desert, propels this tale of mystery and survival. As The Man inches closer to the reality behind his existence, the series probes themes such as identity, redemption, and the consequences of the past infiltrating the present. The Tourist has made its mark as an engaging drama filled with twists and tension, leading to its continuation with a second series set in Ireland.
The first episode of The Tourist aired on January 01, 2022 and the most recent episode to air was on January 28, 2024.
