The BBC have released a teaser of the upcoming series ‘The Fall’ - ensuring fans are glued to their screens on Thursday night.

Later this week - at 9pm on BBC Two this Thursday - Gillian Anderson returns as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson in the series.

At the close of series two she had finally arrested Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) as he lay bleeding in her arms.

But now the question is will he survive the gunshot wounds sustained in police custody?

And will he ever face justice?

Spector is rushed to Belfast General Hospital where Dr Joe O’Donnell (Richard Coyle), Nurse Kiera Sheridan (Aisling Bea) and the staff engage in the blood-soaked fight to keep him alive.

News of Spector’s arrest and life-threatening injuries reach Katie and she plots to help him.

With the powers-that-be questioning Gibson’s handling of the case, her determination to get a conviction is tested to the full.
