This is the first glimpse of Jamie Dornan in series three of The Fall - as fans eagerly anticipate the return of the deadly game of cat and mouse.

Holywood-born actor Dornan and Gillian Anderson returned to Belfast to reprise their roles as serial killer Paul Spector and Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson.

Fans were sent into overdrive as the hit BBC 2 drama which is filmed in Belfast announced it will return to our screens in Autumn.

Series two of The Fall ended with an excruciating cliff-hanger as Dornan lay shot in the arms of detective Stella Gibson.

The last words heard were Gibson desperately shouting "we're losing him" while Spector appeared to lose consciousness.

Anderson plays detective Stella Gibson, seconded to Belfast from the Metropolitan Police, to sniff out serial killer Spector (Dornan) who stalks the city streets for his female prey.

Fans flocked to Belfast from around the world in a bid to catch a glimpse of Dornan as he was back in Northern Ireland for filming of series three.

The programme's official Twitter account posted the first pictures of Dornan and Gibson's character - edging us ever closer to finding out the fate of serial killer Paul Spector.
