The Fall follows the lives of two hunters within one story – Gillian Anderson (Great Expectations) is DSI Stella Gibson, a successful, highly driven homicide detective brought in to lead a Murder Investigation Team under increasing pressure as they face every investigator’s worst nightmare. Jamie Dornan (Once Upon A Time) is Paul Spector, the serial predator she seeks, who randomly preys on young women in and around Belfast, while hiding behind the façade of loving husband and father. The Fall follows the police investigation, uncovering the intricate story of the lives entangled by a series of murders – both the killers’ and the victims’ families.
Anderson and Dornan head a stellar cast including Emmy Award winning Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), John Lynch (Sliding Doors), Simon Delaney (Father & Son), Laura Donnelly (Merlin), Stuart Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Michael McElhatton (Perrier’s Bounty) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).
