the fall

BBC crime drama 'The Fall' is now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Some episodes of series two are still on iPlayer, as it only ended last month. However, Prime Instant Video is the only place you can watch the whole first series.

The Gillian Anderson-starring series is based in Belfast and centres on a serial killer and the female detective (Anderson) who's charging with catching him. It's widely expected to be commissioned for a third series soon.

"We're delighted to secure another high quality drama exclusively for our customers," Chris Bird, film and TV strategy director at Amazon Prime Instant Video UK, said.

"Alongside Golden Globe nominated Amazon original series 'Transparent', our recent hit third series of 'Ripper Street' and the ever popular 'Vikings', this just adds to the stable of high quality drama only available for subscription streaming in the UK through Amazon Prime Instant Video."

Amazon beat Netflix to the exclusive UK rights. Netflix holds the exclusive US rights, so Amazon will understandably beat a drum about its latest victory in the war for your front room.

Alan Cubitt, the show's creator, has previously said he was "very confident" it would get a third series.
