The Fall has become one of the most talked about and widely exported British crime dramas in recent years, thanks mainly to an intense cat-and-mouse story by Alan Cubitt and star turns from Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan. We’ve known that the third series will be the last, so it’s great news to read that it has not only started filming in Belfast, but new cast members – including a VERY significant cast member for crime drama fans – have joined the party. And when I say party, I mean grim-fest, obviously.
Picking up at the moment where the heart-stopping series finale left off in series two, Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan reprise their roles as the battle between Detective Superintendent Gibson and Paul Spector.
At the climax of the last series, audiences were left reeling as Spector, critically injured in a devastating ambush, lay bleeding in the arms of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson. Moments before, the intense and single-minded investigator thought she had her man; now, shocked and desperate, she’s losing him.
Bringing a killer to book is going to take much more now than simply catching him. In the emotionally charged aftermath of the shooting, Gibson’s personal journey to exact justice for the victims’ families must begin with the blood-soaked fight to keep Spector alive.
New cast members include Krister Henriksson (Wallander), yes THAT Krister Henriksson, Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Aisling Bea (Trollied) and Richard Coyle (Crossbones) join Anderson and Dornan. Colin Morgan will feature as Detective Sergeant Tom Anderson, with series regulars John Lynch, Valene Kane, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh and Aisling Franciosi also set to return.
Krister Henriksson in The Fall? Too intriguing!
