Jamie Dornan films and TV shows: the 8 best titles streaming now

Posted by for Entertainment

From The Fall to Marie Antoinette, here’s our pick of the best Jamie Dornan films and TV shows streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime right now.

As you’re no doubt aware, Jamie Dornan’s new outback thriller series, The Tourist, has finally landed on BBC One.

The hugely anticipated TV show sees a British man (Dornan) wake up in an Australian hospital with extreme amnesia.

He doesn’t know his name, and he can’t remember anything about his past. So, when he finds himself being hunted by a string of shadowy figures, all our nameless hero can do is disappear into the unforgiving outback in a desperate bid to outrun them.

As we expected, Dornan is fantastic in the lead role. But Dornan has put in plenty star performances over the years; so if you’ve binge-watched all the episodes of The Tourist on BBC iPlayer, we’ve put together a selection of films and TV shows starring the inimitable actor that you can stream via Netflix or Amazon Prime Video right now.

Here’s just a few of our favourites…

The Fall

The Fall centres on Dornan’s Paul Spector, a disarmingly handsome serial killer who’s been targeting the young women of Belfast. When leading detective (Gillian Anderson) enters the fray, though, she is utterly determined to find out who is breaking, entering and killing with intent – prompting one of the most darkly addictive cat-and-mouse hunts ever seen on telly.

The Fall is now streaming on Netflix.

Fifty Shades Of Grey

Whether you love or hate this adaptation of EL James’ bestselling tome, Fifty Shades Of Grey, there’s no denying that the BDSM-obsessed Christian Grey is arguably one of Dornan’s most famous roles to date.

Fifty Shades Of Grey is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

New Worlds

Set during the turbulent Restoration period of the 1600s, this historical drama series sees Dornan take on the role of idealistic renegade Abe Goffe. Absolutely determined to fight the good fight and turn England into a true republic, though, it’s not long before our dashing outlaw finds himself falling for the privileged and innocent Beth (Freya Mavor) – and, just like that, his world is changed forever.

New Worlds is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Once Upon A Time

Set in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, this long-running magical series is all about fairy-tale characters who are trapped in the real world with no recollection of their storied pasts. And, yeah, Dornan makes a dual appearance as the town’s sheriff and the same rugged huntsman (raised by wolves, no less) who was ordered to kill Snow White and cut out her heart. Gulp.

Once Upon A Time is now streaming on Netflix.

A Private War

Rosamund Pike’s powerhouse performance may steal the show here, but A Private War is still one of the more brilliant titles on Dornan’s CV. A gritty and raw character drama about Sunday Times’ Marie Colvin, it examines the enormous sacrifices required of journalists on the front lines.

A Private War is now streaming on Netflix.

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar

Barb And Star Go to Vista Del Mar tells the story of two best friends who embark on the adventure of a lifetime when they decide to leave their small Midwestern town for the first time ever and go on a holiday to Florida. It promises laughter, tears, an evil villain who plots to kill everyone in town, and Dornan in a Hawaiian shirt. Which he, at one point, rips from his body. Obviously.

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar is available to rent on Amazon Prime Video.

Marie Antoinette

Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst’s electrifying Marie Antoinette focuses on the doomed queen’s adolescence, her penchant for all things luxury, and her passionate love affair with Count Axel von Fersen – who is, you guessed it, portrayed by Dornan.

Marie Antoinette is now streaming on Netflix.

Endings, Beginnings

In this earnest romance, Shailene Woodley’s Daph – still reeling from a traumatic breakup – finds herself single, jobless, and living in her sister’s pool house. Her luck changes, though, when she meets not just one, but two ridiculously handsome men at a party; Dornan’s soulful Jack, and Sebastian Stan’s bad boy Frank. Which will she choose?

Endings, Beginnings is now streaming on Netflix.
