Filming for the third series of hit television show The Fall was yesterday well under way in Belfast - but heart-throb Jamie Dornan was nowhere to be seen.

Gillian Anderson, who plays Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson, was seen filming outside The Merchant Hotel in the city centre along with series regular John Lynch.

Dressed in a smart black coat with matching shoes and a dark handbag, the 47-year-old actress braved the chilly winter weather bare-legged as she climbed into a waiting car.

Dornan and Anderson have both returned to Belfast to reprise their roles in the series, with the cat and mouse battle between DSI Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector set to continue in Allan Cubitt's intense psychological thriller.

Audiences were left wanting more at the end of the second series as Spector, critically injured in an ambush, lay bleeding in the arms of Gibson. Moments before, the detective believed she had her man, but from yesterday's pictures it appears she has lost him.

Fans of the programme went into overdrive when they spotted Dornan around Belfast during filming on previous occasions.

Speaking previously, writer Allan Cubitt said he was "thrilled" to begin filming on the new series. And while he did not want to give anything away about the ending, he suggested this may not be the last series of The Fall - leaving the door open for more.
