The actor will play an American called Billy who will essentially be the antagonist as he ends up tangled in the chase with The Man – Dornan’s character.

When is The Tourist on the BBC?

The BBC released first look images for the show back in May 2021.

The story follows a British man played by Jamie Dornan who finds himself being followed by a tank truck trying to drive him off the road.

He later wakes up injured in a hospital with no idea who he is.

The BBC describes the show as “full of shocking, surprising, funny and brutal turns… set in a world populated by quirky, enigmatic characters and off-beat comedy”.

Although there is a book called The Tourist, the BBC One show is not based on it.

In fact, The Tourist has been written for TV by top writers Harry and Jack Williams.

The two brothers are known for their talent and are responsible for many huge BBC dramas.

Jack and Harry – who own and run Two Brothers Pictures – also wrote The Missing and Baptise.

The show was released on January, 1, 2022, and runs for six episodes.

And it will continue with episode three on January 9, 2022.

The mystery thriller, set and filmed in Australia, will be available on BBC One and iPlayer.
