Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) is brought in from London to help solve a Belfast murder. Unknown to the detectives, the killer, Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan), a married man with two kids, is already planning his next kill.
The Fall is a fantastic Northern Ireland psychological thriller that gives you a glimpse into a city you might not be able to see without a passport. The intense show is without a doubt, one of the best TV shows I have ever seen! It looked appealing, but it exceeded my exceptions. I wish there were more than five episodes for this season, but I am grateful there will be a second season that will begin filming in February of 2014. It showed such intimate scenes of the serial killer that are sure to send chills up your spine. This is thanks to the wonderfully dark and creepy performance by Jamie Dornan, who will play the equally sadistic Mr. Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. Gillian Anderson, of The X Files fame, is also an added treat as she takes on an emotionless detective that is at times just as cold as the killer.
