Black Mirror - Netflix

The Tourist's slight zany dark sense of humour is something that comes up time and time again in Black Mirror, an anthology series that tells a variety of different sci-fi tales about a dystopian future with advanced technology, from murderous robot dogs to rating everyone in your life out of five stars. While some stories are gritty dramas, others have the sort of dramedy vibe that fans of The Tourist will love.

Sense8 - Netflix

Was your favourite part of The Tourist the cat-and-mouse chase as 'the man' attempts to get away from those wanting to kill him? If so, you will love Sense8 on Netflix. The sci-fi show follows a group of people who realise that they are suddenly mentally linked and can borrow each other's abilities and help one another out in various scenarios. However, their powers mean that they are aggressively hunted by the BPO, who are set on finding and killing them.

Close to Me – Channel 4

Like The Tourist, a head injury after falling down the stairs means that the protagonist, Jo, has lost all of her memories from the last year. As she tries to piece together her life, she begins to realise that there is no one that she can trust. A great psychological thriller that keeps you guessing.
