Critic Consensus: Less sensationalistic and more provocative than most police procedurals, The Fall is unapologetically sexy with pressure-building tension driven by plausible characters and motifs.

News & Interviews for The Fall: Season 1
Stella Gibson is an incredibly fascinating character - crummy accent by Gillian Anderson aside.
The Fall presents voyeurism both as a mode of entertainment and as a transgression, but I am not sure, in the end, that the show is not part of the problem it diagnoses
Anderson is fantastic as an updated version of DI Jane Tennison, Helen Mirren's detective in Prime Suspect : in her head she's the boss but in reality she isn't.
The Fall's intention of revealing the dangerous connection between sex and death isn't only audacious, but also endlessly seductive.
It's not as groundbreaking as Prime Suspect, but a reminder of just how addictive the procedural format can be when it's executed just right.
