As I mentioned yesterday, we’re all going through a bit of a quiet patch when it comes to crime drama (summer, innit?) but we’re bracing ourselves for an onslaught of darkness in the autumn when, traditionally, the new seasons of dramas kick into action. One of the series we’re looking forward to most is The Fall, starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, which was one of the best and most intense dramas of 2013. The good news is that the BBC has just started to crank up the PR pressure. The drip-feeding of information has started…
First of all, we saw this image yesterday on BBC2’s facebook page. It’s very clever, showing a ferry ticket in the name of Mr Paul Spector. It’s from Larne to Troon in Scotland, which tallies with the ending – or should we say continuity shot – of series one.
But now here’s the real meat on the bone – a trailer that shows just tightly Gillian Anderson’s Stella Gibson is metaphorically tethered to her prey, and vice versa. Is it because she can’t wait to catch him? Is it because he wants her to become his next victim? Is it because they’re addicted to the cat and mouse game?
I think we all know the answer.
