Gillian Anderson shows her range here--excellent,
This review is from: THE FALL, SERIES 1 (DVD)
we all best know Anderson from her role as agent scully in the x-files. here she plays the antithesis of scully. she is a senior inspector called into Ireland to solve a serial murder case. she is high handed, off putting, not interested in men except as one night stands--she could be a male senior policeman in short. although there is no shortage of serial killer stories on tv, this one is quite compelling. we follow the killer as minutely as we follow Anderson. this must be intended as a series as you are ready for follow up on the story in more episodes at its end.
if you are wondering about where her red hair went, Anderson dyed her hair red to play scully. she was a blonde before taking the role. at conclusion of the scully role, she went back to being a blonde.
this series is also currently available on netflix streaming.

How are you guys able to review something that has not even been released? You should review it after it comes out. How do you know what the dvd will be like? You need to be more responsible and fair to consumers.

The series is available on Netflix Instant Watch, as specified in the review. I have watched it twice already: it is brilliant. Can't wait for the 2nd season.
