‘The Tourist’, the latest series from acclaimed writers Harry and Jack Williams and Emmy-winning production company Two Brothers Pictures (Baptiste, The Missing, Fleabag), premieres on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on New Year’s Day. Dominik Scherrer has composed the score to the six-part thriller series which stars Jamie Dornan, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Danielle Macdonald and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.
‘Jamie Dornan stars as 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.
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. 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?’
