  • The suspense is considerable, with Luther once again desperately trying in vain to keep those he loves (including new girlfriend Sienna Guillory) out of the grisly crossfire, but the violent twists can verge on the eye-rollingly preposterous by the story's over-the-top climax, which (in happier news) reintroduces one of his most memorably seductive adversaries. show more

  • As was the case with the second season, Season 3 of Luther is only four hours long, and the drama would probably be more satisfying if it didn't try to cover so many bases in that limited running time. show more

  • There seems to have been a conscious decision to add a dose of not just violence but horrific suspense and shocking violence. The first hour in particular feels like a disappointing departure. The character remains the same, even if he encounters accentuated gore and mental illness in the criminals. He even grows a bit. show more
