The Tourist... BBC1

Well I’ve just finished episode 6. Heavens, what a rollercoaster it all was :flushed:.

SPOILER ALERT !!!
Not really giving anything away, but I was a bit stumped with how it ended. Don’t know what to think, because it kind of ended before it had ended, if you know what I mean. So we have to assume, based on calculated guesswork. Really disappointing.

I mean, seriously, if you’re going to tell a story as involved and complicated as this was, please please please get to the end properly!

Oh dear, now I feel I’ve spoiled it for you. But honestly, it’s not really a stupid ending, just a bit disappointing. The whole plot thing came together brilliantly, have no fear on that score.

No worries Bathsheba I’ll keep an open mind .

I’m hoping something nice will happen for the police lady who is so needy

I’m hoping he has been framed and is a lovely innocent man

I’d like him and her to ride off into the sunset as a couple

Ok ok I’ll stop making fantasy endings now

Haha, I was wanting all those endings too @susan_m!

Yes, that did run through my mind, but I think the complex plot was more or less 95% resolved, so I don’t know what they’d use for a new season.

Yes, me too!

I have watched the whole thing now ( it filled time when I was only able do a minimum of task ) and was pleased to find unlike many TV series all the loose ends were tied.
I won’t spoil it for anyone but found the poignant ending appropriate.

Oh, bugger, I really shouldn’t have read this thread until I’d watched all the episodes. We still have 2 to go.

I have a feeling that the ending was deliberately left open to interpretation to allow for the possibility of a 2nd series.
If that happens I don’t think I’ll bother

I want to know how the lady police officers life progresses…I hope she finds a really kind lovely chap in fact she could have her own series that would do me to be honest…

We are watching this and enjoying it. Apart from the main man I am loving Helen, the probationary cop and the double act of “lemon” and the detective who is always disappearing to ring his wife.

It also reminds me of how vast Australia is with those long dusty roads. I bought something off Ebay and the woman said she would post it on her next trip to the nearest town which was something like 3 hours away.

I was reading reviews and someone said ,why on earth didn’t someone say your obviously from N Ireland so let’s start there ha ha ha and so true

Although a good few loose ends were tied up in the final episode there are still some dangling in the wind so, a 2nd series please scriptwriters.
