Critical Condition: The Tourist S2

Here’s what critics are saying about season two of The Tourist, which launches today on TVNZ+:

“Jamie Dornan returns as Elliot, still suffering from amnesia (and an enormous growth of beard) after his accident in Australia. However, this time the twisted action moves to Ireland, a journey encouraged by Danielle Macdonald’s Helen: ‘Time to find out who you really are.’ It is by no means a peaceful mission and it’s not long before there’s a wonderfully absurdist chase scene, a violent kidnapping and a couple of deliberately disgusting scenes involving toilets and carcasses.” — The Times.

“Harry and Jack Williams’s drama continues to engage, not least because of its moments of sly humour – including kidnappers with a fondness for pop music – and their ease with jumping across genres; is this a simple crime mystery, a morality tale or a philosophical drama about learning to live with oneself? A bit of each and more, and highly watchable.” — The Telegraph.

Just as thrilling, surprising and packed full of twists as the first, while also introducing just as many varied, oddball characters … The opening episode … expertly sets up an entirely new story and world of characters while keeping the pace ramped up to 11 – there are some thrilling chase sequences here and the episode is also supremely funny, but the story never gets lost amidst all of that.” — Radio Times.

“While Ireland’s lush greenery may offer a very different backdrop to the dust-filled first season, this sophomore six-part run of The Tourist still offers the same well-acted, crisply written, expertly executed action and laughs that made it such a hit back at the start of 2022.” — Stuff.

“This genre-defying TV show returns for a belter of a second season The dark tonal notes are intentionally small, but the stakes are very high. The blend of the two crackles with energy.” — Sydney Morning Herald.
