The second episode of David Tennant's epic new adventure series, Around The World In 80 Days, premieres on PBS' Masterpiece tonight at 8/7c.
Around The World In 80 Days stars David Tennant as Phileas Fogg, a 19th Century gentleman and adventurer who, with his valet, Passepartout, played by rising French actor Ibrahim Koma, takes on the legendary journey of circumnavigating the globe in just 80 days following an outrageous bet. They are swiftly joined by aspiring journalist Abigail Fix, played by The Crown’s Leonie Benesch, who seizes the chance to report on this extraordinary story. Other cast members include Ty Tennant, Jason Watkins, Peter Sullivan, Lindsay Duncan, Dolly Wells, Richard Wilson, Faical Elkihel, Anthony Flanagan, Gary Beadle and Giovanni Scifoni.
Our trio land in the heart of the Italian countryside and hitch a ride on the train to Brindisi. But on board, Fogg encounters an arrogant bully who is challenged by Fogg’s easy rapport with his young, grieving son.
Passepartout is struggling to process what happened in Paris, and Fix is concerned that she may have backed the wrong horse. When disaster strikes, can Fogg apply his brilliant mind to the problem and save the day?
Back home in London, Bellamy worries that Fogg might have what it takes to make it around the world.
