The second series of BBC’s docu-series Fugitives kicked off on Wednesday, July 10th.

After a popular first series which aired in 2017, they are back for a second helping. This time around we follow more extradition detectives as they hunt down more criminals evading the justice system around the world.

And while the usual jam-packed action went on, the familiar narrator from the first series returned to provide the commentary.

So just who is the narrator of Fugitives? Read on to find out and what else he has starred in!

Meet the narrator of Fugitives

The narrator of the action-packed series is British actor Paul Bown.

The 61-year-old actor is originally from Stoke-On-Trent in Staffordshire and has been in the biz since the 1980s.

He is married to makeup artist Jane Jamieson and together they have four children.

Paul does not have any social media channels unfortunately, so you’ll just have to stick to watching – or in this case listening – to him on the screen!

What has Paul Bown been in?

His work has largely been in theatre, but Paul has also worked on screen.

Paul is best known for his work in the 1980s ITV series, Watching. But more recently he starred as Philip Reid in Holby City.

Other television series he has briefly starred in include Mr. Bean, My Family and Father Brown.

He also has some film credits under his belt as he has starred in The Damned United alongside Michael Sheen and the 2017 adaptation of Stephen Fry’s novel, The Hippopotamus.
