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

This is an enjoyable, if quite gruesome, series (first better than second by far), but there is alot wrong too. Apart maybe from Alice (Ruth Wilson), I find the all the characters quite 2 dimensional, yes including Luther. Idris has a lot of screen presence but Luther borders on being cliched much of the time and is not really all that likeable. Also scenes or behaviours are many times just too unrealistc or deeply inconsistent - cops and criminals seem to switch between total genius and total incompetence, then back again. Situations and people just don't make sense so glaringly on many occasions, or seemingly impossible odds are taken and survived , that it can make for very annoying watching. This lack of logical continuity seems to be getting worse too.

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.

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

Having spent most of the last 25 years in Italy I had no idea who Idris Elba is/was so I started to watch Luther to find out. The scripts are sometimes not very realistic but it makes for a good watch.

Exciting exciting exciting.

This series holds a great story each time, with supberb acting, and never drags. Never fails to impress.

Never a problem with the buffering, watched perfectly and in great resolution each time.
Seasons before and after are equally a pleasant watch. Pleasant not being the best word, but very inticing.

Thank you.
