The Fall (2013-present)
This arty BBC/RTE import, about a detective (Gillian Anderson) doggedly tracking down a serial killer (Fifty Shades of Grey's Jamie Dornan), is worth your time, too. The pair work the system at diametrically opposed ends of the moral spectrum and, without ever crossing into one another’s line of vision, manage to form a relationship of sorts. The Fall cranks at the speed of a grandfather clock, but the acting’s so good, you’ll want to linger on each moment for as long as you can. (Stream on Netflix.)
