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.

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.

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

Story line is starting to get a bit silly now, no preservation of crime scene, no continunity of police procedures, DCİ Luther can resolve the case but as soon as he walks out of crimd scene 40 armed police storm in, a bit too late. People arrested for what? No police caution, no explanation why they were arrested, in the real world it suspects lawyer would be clapping his hands. Getting unwatchable now

Alice is only in episode 1 as is the Mcganne character, they are sorely missed. The new female side-kick isn't a strong enough character to balance Idris Elba's Luther. Also her accent keeps slipping between London and Wales. After the outstanding first series and the excellent last episode this one is a bit of a let down. Having said that, it's still a lot better than many crime series and I will still get the next series (if they make one)

Format: DVD
I loved the first series of Luther, the relationship between the damaged cop (Luther) and the psychopathic killer who he couldn't nick (Alice) made for compulsive watching right up to the explosive finale at Waterloo station. In the first series he was carrying more baggage than Posh Spice on a trip to NY as he recovered from a breakdown, struggled to come to terms with his wife's new relationship and was under investigation by the Met's internal affairs. It's all a bit weird in this one - he seems to have shrugged off his wife's death, helps liberate the foxy Alice from the nuthouse (who then only appears for about 30 seconds afterwards), lives in a skanky council flat, has an ally in his wife's ex and the inspector on his case in series 1 is now his boss, mentor and biggest fan.

That said, it's pretty gripping stuff with (only) four episodes and two, no make that three serial killers on the loose and the big bear with the equally big brain and sharp instinct is the only man who can stop them. It does stretch the credibility at times with Luther disappearing at inopportune moments to pursue his other "project", a young girl rescued from the clutches of sadistic porn movie producers before returning at the right moment with a Columbo-esque brainwave to race to the crime scene which was always five minutes away. The perps also didn't look like they were capable of crushing a grape let alone going on their ripper-esque killing sprees but having not met too many murderers, what do I know?

Luther is back - he's big and bad, on the edge as always but his pouty sidekick Alice was definitely the elephant in the room here and was sorely missed by me and certainly many other fans of the first series.
