The Fall 

Trailer
0:21 | Trailer
A seemingly cold but very passionate policewoman goes head to head with a seemingly passionate father who is in fact a cold serial killer in this procedural out of Belfast. The only thing they share is their common complexity.

User Reviews

 
Great show
25 May 2013 | by IanrtaitSee all my reviews

I have really enjoyed the first 2 episodes. It is interesting, dark and detailed with real people and real issues. It unfolds slowly but surely but inevitably.

It is set in Belfast and always has a dark feel.

The script takes the time to detail all of the lives of the main characters not just gloss over them.

The UK knows how to tell a great story with realism.

The cast is very strong and Gillian Anderson is outstanding in this different style of role.

Well worth watching.
