Belfast-based gritty crime drama The Fall has proven a hit with viewers.
The first episode of the new psychological thriller aired at 9pm last night (Monday) after much hype from the critics.
And according to overnight figures, 3.53 million tuned in to its BBC 2 debut.
The ratings are expected to rise further once iPlayer views are taken into account.
Critics have compared the drama to Scandinavian hits like The Killing. The Guardian said: "Move over Denmark, Belfast is the new Copenhagen? Could be."
