The Fall is a drama/crime thriller set in Ireland. The detective superintendent, Gillian Anderson, is aiding in the the investigation of a serial murderer, Jamie Dornan. Instead of the “cat and mouse” type of relationship something more intimate develops over three seasons.
All of the characters have interesting qualities that work well interacting with each other and for story telling purposes. There are flaws with the two main characters. One craves intamacy but lacks commitment and the other likes to strangle woman.
The Fall is a slow burn. The seasons are short so the time vs. the enjoyment payoff is a balanced ratio. The Fall is worth the watch.
