The Tourist, a co-production for BBC One and Stan, and produced by Two Brothers Pictures in association with Highview Productions, is a six-part drama series following a man who, after losing his memory, is on a quest to unlock the secrets of his identity before those who are trying to kill him catch up with him. Filming is taking place predominantly in regional areas of South Australia, with filming also planned for Adelaide.

Jamie Dornan (A Private War, The Fall, Wild Mountain Thyme) has been cast in the lead role of the series.

Joining Dornan in the star-studded cast are Danielle Macdonald (Stan Original Film I Am Woman, Unbelievable), Shalom Brune-Franklin (Line of Duty, Roadkill) and Hugo Weaving (The Lord of The Rings, Patrick Melrose).
