In series one, we joined The Man, who we now know is Elliot Stanley, just before he suffered complete memory loss after being driven off the road by a truck.

By the end, however, Elliot was wracked with guilt having made some damning revelations in regards to his life before the crash, which also turned Helen away.

Series one saw Elliot, played by Jamie Dornan (Belfast), wake up in an Australian hospital with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. With the help of Constable Helen and waitress Luci, played by Danielle MacDonald (Dumplin’) and Shalom Brune-Franklin (Great Expectations) respectively, Elliot is left reeling from the discoveries of his past, as the puzzle of his identity slowly comes together.

Series two will see Elliot and Helen travel to Dublin, Ireland to unearth Elliot’s roots and find out more about who he was before the accident.
