Excellent Combo of Prime Suspect & Red Riding Trilogy
And note that both my nods to great crime thrillers were directed to British productions. The hunt for a serial killer gets a complicated but teeth-gnashing treatment in this beautifully produced series, The Fall. Gillian Anderson plays Stella Gibson, a focused, rather humorless, detective who takes control of the investigation once she ascertains that recent murders are indeed the work on one killer. She doesn’t have to fight the battles that plagued Jane Tennyson, however. The male officers pretty much cede control and follow her lead & respect her authority and insight. But she is like Tennyson in that she’s sacrificed the personal for the professional, indulging in the occasional “sweet night” to satisfy her sexual desires.
The first episode will definitely hook you. It is as creepy as anything I’ve seen as we watch the killer stalk his victim and commit his crime. Like the film, The Boston Strangler, we know who the killer is upfront–the thrill is in wondering if he’ll succeed in thwarting the hunt. On many levels, the killer remains enigmatic through the season.
How I wish American shows–like the recently launched Hannibal–were as top-drawer as this one. Wonderful writing, good subplots, deftly drawn characters that present realistically, not cartoonishly. It’s astonishing that yet another serial killer hunt series can provide a story that so skillfully hooks an audience.
The only thing falling was the show’s ratings
The Fall lost 1.2 million viewers in its 2nd season at the beeb and for good reason. The show degenerated into a pathos of utterly improbable police incompetence, emanating mostly from the supposedly hot-shot chief inspector played by Gillian Anderson, whose entire function appeared to be to watch interminable surveillance and evidence videos while arching her brow and heaving soft sighs, in between wardrobe changes in the washroom where we could get a good look at her cleavage and assess the quality of her latest boob job.
Cops swarmed around the perp but lost track of him constantly, failed to locate any evidence, sent armies to tail him but never once thought of putting a camera in his house, held countless meetings where everyone would moronically stare at a screen displaying the waveform of a voice recording (because if they had recorded video they would have caught him in the 1st season), yet failed to make even a positive voice match when they finally nabbed the guy.
As the show ran out of steam in its second season, clumsily-inserted vignettes began to appear about Ulster loyalist former-terrorist-turned-gangsters and pedophile Catholic priests. An Ulster loyalist gangster with apparent patronage in high places terrorized the police, the lamentable story of the island’s Catholic orphanages was alluded to, and a pedophile priest was put on display, but all of it sanitized and depoliticized to the point of WTF irrelevance.
Predictably, more people watched Masterchef than did the show’s finale on the BBC, which drew even with a documentary on Apple.
