'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.

Creating attractive and charming fictional monsters that prey on women is nothing new; Bram Stoker, for example, used it to great effect and spawned a whole industry. The Fall is no exception with young, attractive, athletic bereavement counsellor, Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) providing solace to the grieving by day and feeding his twisted and murderous erotic fantasies by night: this when he's supposed to be looking after his toddler son and primary-aged daughter while wife, Sally Ann (Bronagh Waugh), is out on night shift as a neonatal nurse.

Spectors' targets conform to a stereotype: all young slim attractive professional women with dark brown hair. He either sources them from the internet or capitalizes on opportunistic encounters in bars etc. He appears to be very skilled at gaining information about them and is an accomplished housebreaker enabling him to gain entry to their homes once he's tracked them down. His other primary asset, of course, is that he is a practiced and convincing liar.

His various attractions lead him to become the focus of another's obsessive fantasies, the couple's baby sitter, 15 tear old Katie Benedetto (Aisling Franciosi) who attempts to use her emerging sexual allure to trap him into committing adultery.

Spector's first victim is Alice Monroe and high flying Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson), a homicide specialist from the Metropolitan Police, is seconded to take over the investigation. A second victim displaying the same MO convinces Gibson that they are dealing with a serial killer.

If Spector (is the name purely a coincidence?

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 ! PS Have noticed in the Product review it states that the killer stalks his victims at random He does not,he has a very specific type that he targets again and again It is the one comforting thing about it,knowing if it were real life,you would personally be safe as you do not fit the type !

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.
