Classic BBC drama The Fall has beaten Netflix originals including Selling Sunset, Project Power and Umbrella Academy to become the most watched show or movie on the platform.
Gillian Anderson stars as DSI Stella Gibson in the gripping new investigative thriller, which first aired on BBC Two. When a murder in Belfast remains unsolved, Gibson is brought in from the London Metropolitan Police to help catch the killer.
As Gibson travels across from London, we are introduced to the murderer himself: Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan). Spector’s dark fascination with a young solicitor Sarah Kay (Laura Donnelly) is in stark contrast to his home life, where he has two young children and a wife who loves him.
As Gibson looks in to the investigation, she finds similarities to a case from 18 months ago. Believing them to be the work of one man, she’s convinced there is a serial killer lose in Belfast but her superiors at the police are unwilling to make the connection.
Meanwhile, that very serial killer is busy preparing for his next attack. As Spector stalks through Sarah’s empty house, the thrill of his crime clearly excites him. When Sarah arrives home she finds that Spector has left a disturbing calling card laid out on her bed.
The show continued for another two seasons before the cat-and-mouse drama reached its thrilling climax.
All three seasons of the drama are available to stream via Netflix now.
