Yes to an­other Fall

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

THE BBC has com­mis­sioned a sec­ond out­ing for its crime drama The Fall be­fore the first se­ries has even fin­ished. The show, star­ring Gil­lian An­der­son as a de­tec­tive hunt­ing a se­rial killer in Belfast, has at­tracted au­di­ences in Bri­tain of more than three mil­lion. North­ern Ir­ish ac­tor Jamie Dor­nan plays se­rial killer Paul Spec­tor in the show. ‘‘ The Fall has proved both a crit­i­cal and rat­ings hit for BBC2 and an­other re­minder of the resur­gence of drama on the chan­nel. With more of Al­lan Cu­bitt’s in­tri­cate and thrilling plot rev­e­la­tions yet to un­fold through the cap­ti­vat­ing per­for­mances of Gil­lian and Jamie, a sec­ond se­ries is a must,’’ BBC drama con­troller Ben Stephen­son says. ‘‘Ob­vi­ously we can’t give too much away as the first se­ries builds to a grip­ping cliff-hanger but what we can say is it will be as sur­pris­ing and in­tense as the first.’’
