If you're looking for a new drama to binge watch, look no further than Jamie Dornan's new BBC show, The Tourist.

The six-parter dropped on BBC on New Year's Day - but fans are already binge-watching all episodes over on iPlayer.

You can watch the trailer below:


The drama - written by brothers Jack and Harry Williams who are also behind thrillers The Missing and Baptiste - stars Jamie as 'The Man' - who has lost his memory after being ran off the road by a mysterious stranger.

When he wakes up in hospital, he has no idea who he is, where he came from or how he got there.

The official BBC synopsis reads: "A British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback is 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."

And viewers are hooked to the drama, with one person writing on Twitter: "Binge watch complete... What a brilliant drama that was #TheTourist."

Meanwhile another said: "Didn’t mean to binge #TheTourist but is bloody brilliant so I had to. Give it a try you won’t regret it. BBC drama kicking off the New Year with a belter!"

And a third added: "Binge watched all but the last episode of #TheTourist last night. No spoilers but it reminds me of Bates Motel I highly recommend it."

A fourth said: "When you realise all the episodes of #thetourist are on iplayer so binge watch them all."

And a fifth added: "Binge watched #TheTourist over the last 2 nights. Cracking series - Cohen Brothers esque."
