Created by Harry and Jack Williams, The Tourist centres around a British man who gets stuck in the outback after a car tries to run him off the road. 

He wakes up in hospital with no idea what happened.

Streaming giant Stan have renewed the show for a second season. 

Jamie’s father Jim tragically died while he was stuck in isolation in Adelaide ahead of filming The Tourist’s first season.

Last month, he said he felt helpless and was left a ‘wreck’ at the time.  

‘Getting that news no matter where you are geographically is sh**e, you know,’ Jamie told News Corp. 

‘I was stuck out there, denied seeing my sisters, denied seeing my stepmother – not ideal, but you’re a wreck no matter where you are when something like that happens to you.’

Despite being in immeasurable pain, Jamie carried on with filming and said the work was a good distraction from his grief.

‘There might be lasting damage, who knows, but at the time it felt like a good distraction,’ he said.

Jim died in March aged 73 after contracting coronavirus.

He was a renowned obstetrician and gynaecologist and aside from his medical career, he also took a guest role in his son Jamie’s gripping BBC One series The Fall, where he played police board member John Porter, in a 2016 episode.

Watch The Tourist now only on Stan.
