As you can see Jamie is already back in London and attend ‘The Fall’ Press Screening at May Fair Hotel in London tonight! Make sure to check out some Pictures and a spoiler-free review of the First Episode of The Fall below!
The Fall was a rare thing when it aired last year, both critically acclaimed and loved by viewers.
A gripping psychological thriller that saw DSI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) try to track down a perverted serial killer in Belfast.
On the face of it, Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) was a family man. But in reality he was a murderer who was sexually motivated and able to avoid police detection again and again.
Some viewers complained about sleepless nights and feeling tense after episodes, but it was so gripping they carried on watching nonetheless.
The second series starts 10 days after Spector’s last attack, with the girl involved still alive but struggling to cope or help.
Whilst Gibson goes about her work tirelessly, Spector’s is in the background as a menacing presence.
Aside from a phone call he barely speaks in the opening 30 minutes, but viewers still know he is very much there, almost like a caged animal.
And fans of hunk Dornan will love the long lingering shots of him contemplating his next move.
With Gibson leading the episode, a scene on a train then kickstarts Spector’s action towards the climax.
We may notice change in him in coming episodes, but as DSI Gibson says as she addresses her colleagues: “He is a man who takes his fantasies and turns them into realities.”
There are six episodes instead of five this time around. BBC drama boss Ben Stephenson says it has “gone up a huge level”. On the basis of the opening episode, he’s not wrong.
It is far from comfortable viewing, but it is hugely compelling.
* The second series of The Fall will air on BBC2 this autumn.
