A compelling drama,
This review is from: The Fall [DVD] (DVD)
It is quite difficult to write a review of 'The Fall' without revealing too much of the plot so this will be quite short. This excellent drama was compelling from start to finish and left the viewer wanting more.
There were scenes that were quite difficult to watch but this didn't diminish from the quality at all. The acting across the board was first rate especially from an ice cold Gillian Anderson as Stella and an even more cold Jamie Dornan as Paul. The series didn't concentrate solely on the hunt for a serial killer as the troubles of Belfast were also touched on. The murderer was shown immediately but this didn't mean that any sense of suspense was lost at all, in fact this was a different and interesting way of telling the story. I actually enjoyed this more than the rather good and much lauded 'Broadchurch'.
I did find the final episode to be slow moving but it did have genuine moments of tension and you weren't quite sure just what was going to happen next. This was high standard TV that maintained it's quality throughout.
