Storyline

Devil-worshipping Lucien Burgess abducts young mother Kirsten Ross from her house,leaving satanic messages in blood on the walls. Rose Teller links this to the similar disappearance and murder of Grace Allen, ten years earlier,the blood being identified as Grace's. Burgess was implicated but had to be released after undercover cop Richard Henley pulverised him. Luther locates Kirsten to a boat,where her dead body is found in a freezer and takes unorthodox action to trap the killer. Mark North is attacked by a gang of girls led by Alice and assumes Luther was behind it. He makes a complaint but Alice gets him to drop it by telling him she did it to get Luther back with Zoe.As a result Zoe offers Luther an olive branch ...and a little more.

Goofs

When the woman is in the freezer box and after Lucien has drained her blood he places duct tape over all the holes in the lid of the box. Afterwards, the freezer is placed inside a boat and when we next see the woman we can clearly see light across her face. The next shot of the outside of the box we once again see the duct tape covering the holes. See more »

DCI John Luther: You think so?
Lucien Burgess: Oh, yeah. The more depraved the killer, the more women fawn on him.

Another Attempted Frame
10 September 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Luther's being is not very popular certainly. His wife has left him and he wants her back. Alice is lurking in the background. She considers herself his ally and she imposes herself in his life. She beats up Luther's rival in love and Luther is blamed for it. The case this time is a satanic guy who kidnaps women who are young mothers, keeps them, drains their blood, and uses it to write evil messages on walls. Because he was severely beaten by a cop and let go because of it, he has managed to gain a kind of immunity. So Luther must find an unconventional method to bring him in. Meanwhile, he is being investigated for his shady police methods. It's easy to root for him because, once again, the villain is so horrible.
