I'm starting to think they don't have a story such a shame as series 1 was so good #TheFall— Hilary Shenton (@HilaryShenton) October 6, 2016

The score writer has been holding the same key down on his synth for a good half an hour now. #TheFall— Howard Kirby (@thewhiteroom23) October 6, 2016

Would they really have a murderer in a hospital bed without at least two coppers there to keep an eye on him? #TheFall— Sez (@Flamingroovy) October 6, 2016
#TheFall Aptly named... the fall from a suspense drama to a medical documentary.... from excitement to boring claptrap. Shame.— Kassius Klee (@KassiusKlee) October 6, 2016
There had been an excruciating wait after Spector (Jamie Dornan) lay shot in the arms of detective Stella Gibson in the excruciating cliff-hanger end of series two.

The show stars Holywood's Jamie Dornan as serial killer Spector and X-Files FBI agent Gillian Anderson as tough-talking detective Gibson.
In the final moments of series two the last words heard were Gibson desperately shouting "we're losing him" while Spector appeared to lose consciousness.
Gibson, seconded to Belfast from the Metropolitan Police, is tasked to sniff out serial killer Spector who stalks the city streets for his female prey.
Speaking previously about series three, Dornan said: "You can expect the unexpected. There's quite remarkable turns in the third season that I really genuinely think people won't see coming that are hugely exciting."
