Dornan (Belfast, The Fall) stars as a British man ‘The Man’ who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback being chased by a huge tanker trying to drive him off the road.
An epic cat and mouse hunt unfolds, and the man later wakes up in the hospital, wounded, but somehow alive – except he has no idea who he is.
With relentless figures from his past haunting him, the Man’s search for answers drives him through the vast and irreconcilable outback.
Created and written by renowned authors Harry and Jack Williams, The tourist is a character-driven series from the Emmy-winning production company Two Brothers Pictures (Baptiste, The Disappeared, Flea Bag).

At heart, however, there is a story of self-discovery with a ticking time bomb underneath: As The Man begins to reveal the mystery of who he was, he is also forced to ask who he is now – and that quickly.
Will he unlock the secret of his identity before those who try to kill him catch up with him?
In addition to the BAFTA nominee Dornan, The tourist also starring Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Alex Dimitriades and Damon Herriman.
