I disagree about the series going nowhere because it is a crime drama. I believe it develops slowly through the episodes and, by the end of the season, you'll realize its plot has gone very far. Each season ends in a very turbulent place and the next one starts with the emotional consequences of the previous. Character growth is brilliant.
How on earth could they kill off Alice?
I find this inexcusable; the relationship between Luther and Morgan is one if the most interesting and compelling aspects of the show (series? I never know with these Brits.).
If the reason for her leaving Luther is her role in The Affair, this is a tragic exchange. The word "shaft" comes to mind.
An unorthodox crime drama, dark and grim, one might even say "One of the best". Directing is awesome too. The only problem with it, like any other crime drama, it goes nowhere...
Im on S01-E03.mp4 & so far Im lovin the gory, yet graphic murder scenes that actually make u feel at times, Humm what would I do in that position!! It's a who done it kinda show with a detective (Idris Elba) who is a bad tempered yet remarkably intelligent. This show was recommended by a friend, as I was so bored of the same csi, criminal minds re-runs. So far so good!!
Idris Elba plays this role as a total perfectionist.
Really enjoyed the short styled seasons with only a few episodes each. Great entertainment.
