The Tourist season 2 preview

The hotly anticipated second series of the award-winning smash hit series The Tourist sees Jamie Dornan and Danielle Macdonald reprise their roles as amnesiac former reprobate Elliot Stanley and zany constable Helen Chambers. Only this time, the odd couple have delved so far into Elliot’s past they’ve ended up in Ireland.

Greg Larsen is also back as Ethan Krum, Helen’s horrible fiancé, plus there’s a whole new rogues’ gallery of characters, including Detective Ruairi Slater (Conor MacNeil), Niamh Cassidy (Olwen Fouere) and the menacing McDonnell family – Donal (Diarmaid Murtagh), Orla (Nessa Matthews), Fergal (Mark McKenna) and Frank (Francis Magee).

Set in the Australian outback, the first season of The Tourist introduced Elliot as a sympathetic lost soul far from home, trying desperately to piece together his past after a near-fatal car crash.

Fast-forward a little, and it turned out that our protagonist wasn't such a good guy after all. Having stolen a large wad of cash from his ruthless handler, Kosta Panigiris (Alex Dimitriades), he ran away with Kosta’s fiancée, Luci (Shalom Brune-Franklin), so it’s little wonder so many people are out for his blood.
