4.0 out of 5 stars On The Outside Looking In
This four parter 'Luther' series satisfies some of what I hoped Luther would become. It seems John Luther, played by Idris Elba, the rogue policeman, is his description, will always be on the outside looking in. The man who cares too much about the crimes of injustice, just does not have enough time to look for his own life. That seems to be the way with the stand out...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best series.
I thoroughly enjoy Luther, it is dark and edgy, but this 3rd season felt somewhat flat. What spoiled it for me was the storyline of Gray and Stark who are convinced that Luther is a crooked cop and set out to "get him", this was always going to go nowhere and it did, they even arrested him without any evidence, it felt very amateurish. I was glad to see Alice Morgan make...

I think out of the 3 series this was my favourite. It was even darker. Luther and Alice well a pair well suited. Sorry about Ripley though. Worth watching just for the lovely Idris Elba who plays Luther brilliantly. I need more!

I only watched Luther after all the hype had mostly been and gone, however if you're like me and are playing catch up on all the best box sets out there, make Luther one of your top picks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half Excellent, Half Stuttering & Inconsistent, 24 Aug 2013
This review is from: Luther - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I've been a big fan of Luther since its beginning and have previously written a glowing 5 star review of the first two seasons on Amazon. This season however, was a bit of a let down.

The first case set over the first two episodes is fantastic. The second case is probably the worst that Luther has had and features an event that was completely unnecessary and I suspect purely to add dramatic tension because they knew it was the last series. Alice is not used enough, but the one episode she is in, she is both hilarious and compelling.

The main story of the season plays out of over all 4 episodes and deals with two internal affairs officers (Erin Gray and new character George Stark) trying to bring down Luther because they believe he is corrupt. This storyline initially sets up some fantastic scenes between Luther, Ripley, Gray and Stark but from the 2nd episode onwards becomes inconsistent and grating. It becomes clear that Gray and Stark's 'logic' is fatally flawed and they are bending every piece of 'evidence' to make it look Luther is guilty. This comes to a head when they start to suspect Luther has hired a serial killer he had been trying to catch to kill his new girlfriend. Which is completely unbelievable and poorly executed.

Even though it eventually gave me the series ending that I always wanted, I can't help but feel the final series could have been so much more.
