The Fall Season One 2013

Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson

     This film series is a very intense psychological thriller.  A serial killer in Belfast Ireland carefully selects and stalks his female victims.  Paul Spector has two sides, a dark side where he is a heartless killer and the light side where he is a family man with a wife, a daughter and a son.  He works as a grief counselor with parents who have lost a child.  DSI Stella Gibson has been brought in to consider all the evidence in the first two crimes.  She determines they are connected and probably committed by the same person.  When there is a third murder, the link between the three crimes is more fully established. 
     Very good but the details of the crimes are severe.   They are not continuously dwelt on but the investigation and the details of the killer’s family and professional life pull you away from the harshness.  It’s a race against time for DSI Gibson, she will need every instinct and every aspect of her training to find the killer.  This will be the only way to stop further crimes.  4 ½* (I really liked this series)
