The second series of Luther is rather odd. It's only four episodes long, and as I hoped they wouldn't do, Mark North (Paul McGann) makes a brief appearance but has nothing to do. Just when Luther was starting to give us an insight into its characters, it removes a bunch of them, as Luther is redeployed into a Violent Crims Unit. He has two cases- one makes up episode 1 and 2, the other makes up 3 and 4- plus trying to save Jenny, a teenage prostitute, from a murky underworld of violent pornography.

Luther has fully converted to the Scandinavian gloom that is so popular now but it has lost the thriller element. The loss of Alice (Ruth Wilson) is also a mistake as despite her character being rather broad, it is her relationship with John that makes the show distinct from other cop dramas. As a character, John has mellowed considerably, as had Mark from his brief appearance. There's a lovely scene where John asks Mark to babysit Jenny (Aimee Ffion-Edwards), and Mark briefly bonds with Jenny over her tragic loss. Also, the friendship between Jenny and John is sweet and sensitively done- perhaps the only nice innocence in Luther's life.

The crimes are much weaker as well. The first one is exciting but the second is disappointing, seeming more like a run-of-the-mill crime drama.

What I'd like to see from Series 3 is character. If I wanted to see crime, I could watch Silent Witness. I hope the show doesn't throw away all the things that made it so different.

Luther 1 was excellent and luther 2 will not disappoint. First rate nitty gritty dramapf the highest caliber.
Idris elba is just brilliant and he definately makes the series.
If you havn't seen series one, then buy them both.

And yes, there is english subtitles for deaf people like me and hundreds of others who want this info

If you have never watched Luther before I suggest you start with the equally impressive series 1.

I loved Elba as Stringer Bell in the Wire and he is great in this too.

This series is done slightly different in that there are only 4 episodes (2 stories done in double episodes)

My only 2 complaints are:

1. Not enough episodes - why not 6 episodes like series 1?

2. Alice appears only briefly at the beginning of the series. Then vanishes into thin air. I hope she will be back for series 3 if it is ever produced.

Still not enough to warrant less than 5 stars.

I loved the first series but this second wasn't quite as gripping. I'm not sure why exactly, maybe it's because it wasn't new anymore I guess, but still a good series none the less.

Along with all other fans of Luther I can't believe that this series doesn't get the true recognition it deserves.
Both series so far having been fantastic, and have recently received a Golden Globe in America which just goes to prove how good it is.

Would highly recommend, DVD price is worth every penny. Not sure why you can't buy them on Blu-ray as they were shown in HD on the BBC, but the the show is so strong you forget about the quality.

Now we just have to hope the BBC bring it back for a third series!!

Everything I loved about season one is present and correct, dark and gritty London with story lines which are sometimes all to real and sometimes just so fantastical as to raise an eyebrow but maybe, just maybe possible. Idris Alba cements his place as a real man crush, the epitome of The man all women want to be with and the man all men want to be. An almost anti-hero, his acting and that of those around him is superb. The only negative is the paucity of episodes. I want more than 4 damn it!

I totally enjoyed the 1st series and have almost worn out my DVD watching it. I missed the second series when it was on TV. So bought the second series. I half expected to be disappointed as very often the 2nd offering are never as good as the 1st. I needn't have worried. I watched the whole series over 1 weekend. The characters are so well cast. John Luther is such a tortured sole, who wants to do the right thing and is willing to do whatever it takes. I hope they can put another series out.
