This really is very very good Do not use the word brilliant lightly but this is. Gillian Anderson is excellent as always and Jamie Dornan is a revelation as the killer Very disturbing to watch and not for the actual killings,but the 'normalness',when Paul is with his wife and children,in contrast to his other 'activities' Truly chilling Loved every second of it Can not recommend this highly enough Thank goodness series 2 is not far off !

'The Fall' is an Irish-British serial killer/crime drama series that was released in 2013 and was shown in the United Kingdom on BBC Two. The five part series is created by Allan Cubitt and directed by Jakob Verbruggen. The program received a fantastic response from the critics on its release. Combined with excellent viewership figures, the show became a surprise hit and the highest rated BBC Two drama launch in eight years.

The series is based in Northern Ireland and shows Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) trying to catch a twisted serial killer (Jamie Dornan) responsible for numerous disturbing deaths.

To begin things, this is high quality television that sets the benchmark for crime dramas. The show is as good as it gets, I loved and relished every second.

From the first episode, the disturbing events and compelling suspense hooked me to show. The dark and haunting setting shown in crisp cinematography, creates an atmosphere full of class. Combined with stunning acting, and I mean award winning performances, I knew this was going to be special. As the unpredictable cat and mouse game intensifies between Stella Gibson and the killer, the viewer is left begging for more. The story brilliantly progresses with interesting intertwining sub-plots and plenty of twists. The final episode for me was a truly powerful watch. Yes, a section of the viewers have complained that the ending was disappointing. However, I found the ending gripping to say the least. The final minutes showcased a heart-thumping exchange of dialogues between the lead actors that left me in a mesmerized state with goosebumps. In my opinion the climax was fitting because it sets up the second series perfectly and promises all the answers.

This really is a top class drama set in Belfast and with a tremendous cast of actors. Many scenes are genuinely thrilling in the true sense of word, a credit to the scriptwriters, camera operators, cinematographers, editors, actors as well of course as the excellent director. I couldn't recommend this highly enough, and can't wait for series 2.

This is an amazing story line! From the start you are completely pulled in, rather than a whodunit, its a why?
As usual Gillian Anderson is fantastic, taking on a completely different role to previous characters she has portrayed.
If you are fan of crime dramas, or like me a Gillian Anderson fan, this is for you!
But give it a go, you will not be disappointed!!

Overall, an excellent series. But, the ending is disappointing. I thought I was diddled by Amazon by thinking that they had failed to deliver the full disc set but then I realized there were only 5 episodes in total!!! So, now I'm waiting on tenterhooks for the subsequent series and I guess there will be more than one more...................................

My partner and I decided to purchase this after reading some of the reviews, and because my partner quite likes Gillian Anderson from her X-Files days! I was fresh off watching 'Broadchurch', which I thought was decent but could have been better, so I didn't have particularly high expectations for 'The Fall'. I'm glad to say I was presently surprised at how well written and produced this series was, and I thought Jamie Dornan's acting was superb - he's clearly far more than just a pretty face! While the subject matter was deeply disturbing, and quite stomach-churningly graphic and suspenseful at times, I found I couldn't stop watching or look away. I guess that's testament again to the writers/director/and producers of The Fall that they can take such a disturbing story-line and make it utterly compelling, even for the more squeamish among us! I definitely do not like gore for gore's sake, but in The Fall, it was just enough to make it believable without battering you over the head with it - sorry, bad choice of metaphor perhaps! :) I hope they release Season 2 quickly.

My only pet peeve was Gillian's rather silly faux English accent - why they didn't just make her an American detective, I don't know.

Tense, absorbing, unsettling drama. Jamie Dornan is excellent, both as the loving family man and the evil serial killer. Really looking forward to Series 2.
