First look at Merlin’s Colin Morgan in The Fall

There's a serial killer on the loose but still time for a laugh between scenes on the set of the BBC2 thriller...

Merlin is all grown up and solving crimes!


Well, sort of: we’ve finally got a look at actor Colin Morgan (who played the young wizard over five series of the BBC Saturday-night drama) in the rather darker world of The Fall.

Morgan will play DS Tom Anderson, who joins DSI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) in her hunt for serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) later on this series.

Here we can see him at a crime scene with Gibson in episode four – but what brings him onto her team so late in the day?

And in this behind-the-scenes snap, we see Morgan having a chuckle with Jamie Dornan in a filming break. Presumably, this means Anderson is hot on the trail of Spector –  and hopefully knows what he’s doing…

We’ll have to wait and see what happens when Morgan debuts a couple of weeks from now – but who else can’t wait to see Merlin take on Christian Grey?


The Fall continues on Thursdays, BBC2 at 9.00pm
