Favorite actress series | Gillian Anderson: “The Fall is a superb detective series. It’s dark and edgy, built on character. Anderson is sensational in it. Her Stella Gibson is a woman to whom the adjective ballsy simply doesn’t apply, she’s subtle and feminine: soft voiced in silk blouses, killer heels. When she makes a pass at a female colleague in episode three tonight, half of the women in the country, let alone the men, will probably think: I would.But the model performance of restrained, unshowy television acting that Anderson gives as Gibson is not the only weapon in her armoury. Her recent emotionally raw Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire(ironically the classic role about a woman failing to cope with her fading beauty) at the Old Vic suggested that there is much more to come from this actress.” - Chris Harvey
