The Fall's writer Allan Cubitt on women and violence in TV drama

7 June 2013 4:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The new wave of female TV detectives is hugely popular, but violence against women is still the mainstay of crime drama, BBC2's The Fall included. Here, its writer makes his defence

The first season of The Fall is drawing to a close – the final episode airs on Monday night. I first pitched the idea in 2009.

Jamie Dornan has admitted that he hopes his upcoming role on BBC's The Fall will help him shake off his model tag.

The 30-year-old told Pa that he is confident that most viewers of BBC drama will not be aware of his previous work.

Dornan is well known for his modelling career, including work for Calvin Klein alongside Eva Mendes and Kate Moss.

He will star alongside Gillian Anderson in the highly-anticipated BBC drama later this month, playing serial killer Paul Spector, who has a dark fascination with solicitor Sarah Kay (Laura Donnelly).

The 30-year-old said: "Very few people who watch BBC dramas would know I was a model. If you do too much modelling I guess there's a stigma attached to it.

"I wanted to act from a young age, but then other things get in the way, I guess. This isn't even close to anything I've done before. »
