It has been ten days since Paul Spector told DSI Stella Gibson that she would never catch him. As Gibson tries in vain to help Spector's surviving victim to remember the identity of her attacker, Spector is forced to deal with the loose ends that he left behind in Belfast.
His return to the city reveals that someone from his past has been helping police with their enquiries, forcing Spector to change his plans with terrifying consequences.
The Fall was created by Allan Cubitt and revolves around a PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) investigation in Belfast into a string of Murders.
After the PSNI are unable to make any progress on the case(s), Detective Superintendent Gibson, who is on secondment from London's Metropolitan Police Service, arrives at the Belfast police station to review the hug investigation and close the case.
