The Tourist (BBC) – another excellent January mini-series, made in Australia.

Jamie Dornan in a Two Brothers Pictures Highview Productions All3Media South Australian Film Corporation BBC Studios ZDF Stan production. Was the first ‘The Fall’ way back in 2013!!!

In a nutshell: a man is pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. He wakes in hospital, hurt, really really really thirsty but somehow alive. However, he has no idea who he is, so he searches for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback of Australia.

Australian actor Danielle Macdonald played it really well. Brilliant Reminded me of the female heroes or is it anti-heroines of Fargo (Series 2)

 Kat George wrote of its cast of ‘female characters were written with such tender care and truth (even within the absurdity of the unfolding plot) that the show set a new standard for female heroes and anti-heroes.’ She concluded: ‘The world of Fargo is a violent one where even the wily don’t always survive. But the women of Fargo are the ones who left an indelible mark on its narrative.’ December 2015
