The story picks up immediately from the cliffhanger Season 2 finale as the battle between Detective Superintendent Gibson (Anderson) and serial killer Paul Spector (Dornan) heads towards a “terrifying conclusion” in which the rules of their deadly cat-and-mouse game are set to shift again.
New cast members inlcude Krister Henriksson (Wallander), Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Aisling Bea (Trollied) and Richard Coyle (Crossbones).
Colin Morgan will also feature as Detective Sergeant Tom Anderson, with series regulars John Lynch, Valene Kane, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh, and Aisling Franciosi also returning.
Cubitt says, “I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years with Stella Gibson and Paul Spector… and I’m thrilled to have recently started filming the third installment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death. Gillian and Jamie have lived and breathed those characters during that time and I’ve been incredibly well-served as both writer and director by their stellar performances. Obviously I don’t want to give anything away about how the third series will end but I can say that I am looking forward to working with both Gillian and Jamie again in the near future!”
The Fall is created, written and directed by Cubitt, and produced by Fables in association with Artist Studio for BBC Two. It’s produced by Gub Neal and Carol Moorhead. Executive producers are Patrick Irwin and Justin Thomson-Glover for Artists Studio, part of Endemol Shine Group, Stephen Wright for BBC Northern Ireland, Cubitt and Anderson.

Posted on Author adminCategories The FallComments Off on Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson back in Belfast to film The Fall series 3
Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson will return to the streets of Belfast at the end of the year to start filming the new series of The Fall.
Insiders says that filming is scheduled for December and January, meaning that Jamie will be able to spend Christmas in Northern Ireland with his family.
And the filming schedule has been arranged around Jamie, who has back-to-back movies to film until the end of the year and who is rumoured to be starting filming on the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie Fifty Shades Darker next spring.
It was announced last week that a third series of the BBC2 drama series will go ahead, delighting fans who are desperate to know what happened to Jamie’s serial killer character PAUL SPECTOR after he was shot in the forest.
The series ended with Gillian’s character STELLA GIBSON cradling Paul in her arms, prompting rumours that he had been fatally injured, but the new five-episode series will tie up the loose ends and let us see if Stella finally gets justice for the murdered women in Belfast.
Fans will be thrilled to see Jamie and Gillian back on the streets of Belfast where they film in well known local landmarks and public places allowing fans a glimpse of the new plot.
Meanwhile, Jamie finally ended rumours that his wife AMELIA WARNER was not happy with his role as sexy sado-masochist CHRISTIAN GREY in Fifty Shades.
Newspapers reported that his wife was shocked and annoyed at the sexual nature of his role — reports that Jamie has dismissed as ‘b*****ks!’
“Total b*****ks!” he said. “Of course she would have read the scripts well in advance, and she’s massively supportive of Fifty Shades.”

When season 2 of The Fall, the BBC show starring Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson, ended with Dornan’s character being shot, there was speculation surrounding whether the story could continue if the show were given a third season. However, as creator/writer/producer/director Allan Cubitt told EW in February, he was very particular about the dialogue he wrote in one of Spector (Dornan) and Gibson’s (Anderson) final scenes together in season 2.
When Gibson interrogated Spector, the serial killer told the detective that their story was far from over. “I was very careful [to include] the line where he says, ‘It’s not over between us. In fact, it’s only just begun.’ [That] was me making sure that the audience understood that there was more to be got out of the battle between Spector and Gibson,” Cubitt said.
And speaking specifically about a season 3, which BBC has now officially announced, Cubitt claimed that he will “continue the story of Spector and Gibson,” despite Spector’s bullet wound (or recent arrest). As he put it, “I think there’s an awful lot more to get out of it.”

Posted on Author adminCategories The FallComments Off on Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan return in The Fall
The Fall returned and was as horribly unpleasant and brilliantly gripping as the first series.
This means we can spend between now and Christmas watching the Belfast serial killer drama battling it out with The Missing for the prestigious title of Most Nerve-Wracking Nightmare-Inducing Thriller of The Year.
Both The Missing and The Fall (BBC2’s highest-rating drama launch for eight years) are steadfastly stylish slow burners, having clearly learnt from Broadchurch and The Killing that where intense suspense is concerned, less is more.
The Missing reached the third of its eight episodes on Tuesday.
It ended with the French detective leading the investigation into the abduction of Olly Hughes, the young son of haunted, broken, British tourist Tony Hughes informing him that the police had recovered a video. He then asked one of those questions no one ever wants to hear: ‘Are you sure you want to see it?’
It was a moment of dread, with the answer being both ‘yes, obviously’ and, put it like that, ‘no, definitely not.’
We knew how he felt. We wanted our morbid curiosity to be satisfied at the same time as knowing we would recoil from whatever it showed.
So it proved.
The shaky hand-held footage showed the unmistakable, unbearable, sight of Tony’s son stood at a window as a hand was placed across his mouth and he was dragged away.
The Missing and The Fall are divided by quintessential differences but work in much the same way. (…)
