"I think it's the best new series currently streaming online," @lononaut penned.

@Luke_Winch asked: "Did anyone else watch The Tourist?? Best thing that's been on the BBC for f***ing ever! That last episode was heartbreaking.

"If you haven't watched it, please do. It's a tense, at times ridiculous and hilarious and superbly structured in a 6 episode package. Loved it."

Director Chris Sweeney, who spoke to Express.co.uk last year, detailed his huge enthusiasm for the script which was written by brothers Jack and Harry Williams.

He stated: "I've known these two [writers] since I was a kid and I know they are really funny and I know they write thrillers. But I didn't know anything about The Tourist I just knew it was something they loved.

"And I started reading it and I was like, 'Oh my god, this is insane.'"

The Tourist series two will air on the BBC.
