Nowhere Man: Characters and Clues

Tom looking disturbed.Nowhere Man is a combination sci-fi, conspiracy, mystery series in three story arcs. Tom’s goal is to find out who erased his existence and get them to give him his life back.

Characters and clues appear in droves in Nowhere Man, unlike a classic mystery show which provides the clues in an easy-to follow close-up, Nowhere Man is designed so that the clues and red herrings are given equal weight. The writers had the luxury of adding more clues and red herrings than normal as this mystery doesn’t get wrapped up for over 24 hours. They were able to stretch some over several episodes.

It’s up to the viewer to decide which path of clues to follow over the course of the series.
