Storyline

Mark claims he threw the first punch, so Luther is released. He blames Alice for setting him up and she rapidly becomes an irritating, patronizing stalker. Meanwhile, a sniper is killing police officers all over London and ex-marine Owen Lynch, wounded in Afghanistan, and whose father Terry, another ex-soldier, is in jail for killing a police man, sends Luther's office a video tape claiming responsibility. Luther believes the father has ordered the son to do it to get his case re-examined but Terry refuses to call his boy off. Luther stages a television interview reviling the Lynches so that Owen will be forced into a confrontation. Written by don @ minifie-1

Getting better
12 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a slightly disappointing opening episode this Idris Elba vehicle showed a noticeable improvement. Luther is still getting calls from Alice Morgan who pays visits to his estranged wife and the man in a coma who Luther let fall in the first episode, this however isn't the main story, that concerns a former soldier who has gone to war against the police, gunning down several officers. Once identified Luther believes he is acting on the orders of his father for is in prison for killing a policeman.

This episode was pretty taut and there were a few surprises, there was little or no warning when the police men got shot which made me jump. The scenes between Luther and the killer's father were particularly good, I loved how Luther persuaded him to give him the information needed to find his son. I hope this series manages to provide more quality episodes like this, it is still not perfect but it is certainly a move in the right direction.
