Review

BBC2 seems to be hastily brushing away the final episode of The Fall by dropping it into the schedule here. But then maybe BBC2 has become as bored as everyone else with this creaking, pretentious psychological thriller, which ends with bursts of savage violence and all-round hysteria.

Serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) remains in that laughably lax “secure” mental health facility, while detective Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) and her remarkably incompetent little gang look for more victims. You’ll be shaking your head by the end, as the sordid tale reaches the destination that we all saw coming.

Summary

Final episode of the crime drama starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan. Gibson and Anderson present fresh evidence, which proves to have explosive consequences. Spector's new-found friendship in the secure psychiatric facility takes a disturbing turn, and Gibson pays a visit to Katie, who is struggling to cope with imprisonment.
