    Gillian Anderson’s DI Stella Gibson is drafted in from London to investigate an unsolved murder case in Belfast which suggests a serial killer (played by Jamie Dornan) is still operating in the city.

    With equal attention given to both the killer and the detective, this innovative new series was hailed by the Guardian as ‘one of the best dramas to have appeared on the BBC in years…relentlessly original, consistently gripping.’

    The Fall ran for 5 episodes in May-June 2013 on BBC2.
