Critic Consensus: The Fall stumbles somewhat in its third season, but still delivers enough to satisfy fans of the show -- and slow-burning psychological thrillers in general.

Critic Reviews for The Fall Season 3

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

The atmosphere is stiflingly tense.

May 2, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What was hard to watch became unworthy in Season 3, and that's a fall we simply can't bear.

Top Critic

Allan Cubitt certainly knows how to hook an audience.

Oct 31, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Its hallmark traits of knife-edge tension, sexual discussion and psychologically-charged scenes have been posted missing, and replaced with an hour of medical procedures and jargon that would bore the most ardent of E.R. fans.

Oct 31, 2016 | Full Review…

This show thinks it is Very Important Viewing, unmissable drama, televisual literature. The fact is it's very missable indeed.

Jul 20, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Season 3 does a passable job ending the story, but you have to watch the other seasons first.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

The Fall was back for another bout of sadistic psychological chess played out between Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson, subjecting viewers to its usual unbearable tension but in the opposite way we expected.

Nov 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Between the spurts of sparse dialogue, dragged-out shots of dimly-lit rooms and corridors (a regrettable legacy of Scandi noir), and long periods of staring into space, there was enough padding here to insulate an attic.

Oct 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Worth a watch for viewers familiar with the series.

Apr 19, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a frustrating end to a frustrating season.
