Here is a British series for you. I took a look and said to myself here it is this is the one.The Fall establishes a frightening, grimy and compellingly realistic scenario right from the beginning; after 2 women was found raped and murdered in their apartment,their bodies left in posed tableaux, the Belfast police department reaches out to the London-based Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Anderson) to help them out, to see of the murders are connected. Her supervisor on the cases, police captain Jim Burns (John Lynch), thinks that the most recent killing is possible that is related to the ex-fiancée. Gibson concludes that both murders were by the hands of the same person , and that the entire department needs to act quickly to prevent another tragedy from occurring.
What I like about this you see the murderer doing his thing and his everyday life. Than you see the detective at work and doing their thing. It is more realistic this way instead of closing the case in an hour show. You actually see how they investigate and the clues that lead to the killer. it is the cat and mouse game. The writer has done a nice job here. It has some unexpected turns here and there. Stella is a tough emotionless detective and has to deal with the rough tough detectives and personnel she is assigned too. There is a sensuous and cold side of Stella as you see in the second episode where she hooked up with one of the detective. Then there is Danielle Ferrington (played by Niamh McGrady), a tough officer who reveals that she’s gay. It is a fresh seres not like the American series as I called them the hollywood machine that are a bit unrealistic and solve the murder in an hour. Thank god for a refreshing look at it. It is as suspenseful as it should be but i might want to say that the cinematography is grippy but beautifully well film as well.
