Here’s everything you need to know about the six-part drama.

The Tourist cast on BBC One – Jamie Dornan stars as The Man/Elliot Stanley

Jamie Dornan, 39, stars as a British man, known only as The Man, who finds himself being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road.

Cue him waking up in hospital with no memory of who he is, and a string of shadowy figures from his past intent on killing him.

But why? What has he done to attract their attention? And what’s he hiding?

Fifty Shades of Grey fans will know Jamie from his role as Christian Grey in the franchise.

He’s also starred in films including Anthropoid, Untogether, Robin Hood and A Private War.

TV viewers will recognise him as Sheriff Graham Humbert – aka The Huntsman – in Once Upon a Time, and Abe Goffe in New Worlds.

He proved his villainous credentials in The Fall, when he played cold-blooded serial killer Paul Spector.

Speaking about the role, Jamie said: “The Tourist are some of the most exciting scripts I’ve ever read.

“I can’t wait to go to Australia with such a talented group of people.”
