BBC Two confirm details of the first episode of The Fall, series 3.

Updated: The BBC have confirmed details of the first episode from the third and final series of The Fall, which returns later this month.

Gillian Anderson returns as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson in The Fall. She has arrested Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) - but will he survive the gunshot wounds sustained in police custody? 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.

The Fall returns to BBC Two at 9pm on Thursday, September 29.
