This may or may not work for you, depending on where you live (as in, if you are in the UK or the site thinks you are). Anyone up for making a dl version?
Tuesday 23 September, 19:15
60 minute screening followed by Q&A with cast and crew.
Join us at a special preview of the first episode of the new series of the BAFTA-winning BBC drama The Fall.
The story picks up where series one left off, with Gibson in pursuit of Spector. A personal link from Spector’s past opens up some clues for Gibson but provokes Spector in way that threatens to jeopardise the whole investigation. Gibson is forced to take ever greater risks but the closer she comes to capturing him, the more Spector trespasses into her private world, delighting in taunting and provoking her. As the net gradually tightens around him he becomes psychologically ever more dangerous and destructive.
The Fall is a Fables Limited production in association with Artists Studio. It’s produced by Gub Neal and Julian Stevens with Allan Cubitt, Justin Thomson-Glover and Patrick Irwin acting as executive producers.
The series was commissioned by Janice Hadlow, outgoing Controller of BBC Two and Ben Stephenson, Controller of Drama Commissioning.

Maybe Colin will show up for the Q&A after?
|Anonymous asked: to that anon wondering about Colin having taken drugs before: I actually doubt that he did, because he stated that for Parked he spent time with drug addicts and smoked for a month to prepare himself for the role, so if he had taken drugs before that he wouldn't have needed to do that, so I don't think he did. He also lives a very healthy lifestyle in general, you can find that all when you google it :)|
Colin spotted in London (x)
|Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm a huge Colin fan, and my sister just raised an interesting thought. She thought that some of the things he's been in, i.e Parked, the Addicts Symphony he will be in, etc. may be a sign that he's taken drugs before? He used to be very thin, and his immune system is rather weak. I'm not totally convinced - I think he's somewhat addicted to tragedies and naturally prone to illness, but it's an interesting thought. What do you think? (please not that I'm not dissing Col, I love him) ;)|
I think Colin is just drawn to those kind of stories. And Colin, as far as we know, has always been skinny, but he was especially skinny in Parked where he plays an addict so it makes sense that he would trim down for that role. He does believe in giving 100% in everything he does after all.
