There are also many familiar faces that will help to bring the much-loved adventure novel to the small screen. In an amazing coup, David Tennant has been picked to star in the series as Phileas Fogg.

The series will follow Phileas Fogg after making a £20,000 wager with snobbish members of the prestigious Reform Club that he can circumnavigate the world in just 80 days.

Mr Fogg is accompanied by journalist Abigail Fix. German actress Leonie Benesch will play in the role of Abigail Fix. Audiences outside of Germany will best know her from The Crown in which she played Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark.

Shivaani Ghai plays Aouda starred regularly in EastEnders and has been popping off in the Batwoman TV series. French actor Ibrahim Koma plays as Passepartout.

The Late 2021 and Early 2022 UK TV Releases

We've mentioned earlier in the article there's plenty of BBC shows coming out this Winter (including a few Christmas holiday specials). Those finishing up work before the Xmas break will have plenty in their streaming schedules to fill their time sitting in front of the telly. There's plenty more coming after Christmas too.

When it comes to UK television programmes, Australia is usually used as the source for a beautiful, exotic location for some reality TV. Rarely is it the source of horror. But this is the premise for the new series titled The Tourist. Beebs subscribers can start streaming The Tourist on 1st January 2022.
