At the climax of the last series, audiences were left reeling as Spector, critically injured in a devastating ambush, lay bleeding in the arms of the detective who had ended his reign of terror. Moments before, the single-minded investigator thought she had her man; now, shocked and desperate, she’s losing him.
In the aftermath of the shooting, Gibson’s personal journey to exact justice for the victims’ families must begin with the blood-soaked fight to keep Spector alive.
Writer Allan Cubitt says: “I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years with Stella Gibson and Paul Spector – the central characters of The Fall – and I’m thrilled to have completed the third instalment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death. Gillian and Jamie have lived and breathed those characters and I’ve been incredibly well-served as both writer and director by their stellar performances.”
