Great series. I thought Luther 1 had far more cohesion than the 2nd season. Missed Alice as she became the perfect counterpoint to Luther and the evolving of their relationship was a good part of Luther 1. Twin brothers in Luther 2 seemed a little too far out and the violence of their actions needed a base - where did it come from? Also in Luther 1 you saw the evolution of DS Ripley into a Luther supporter. In Luther 2 the new DS who's brought on board doesn't buy in and it feels like a detriment to the overall movement of the show. In the Wire In the Blood series for example, the team needs to establish and re-establish itself as characters change. Watch any cop drama and this happens. Four episodes (just 2 really) aren't enough to re-establish the new team. Look forward to Luther 3

After a hiatus DCI John Luther returns to work in the newly formed Serious and Serial Crime Unit headed by DSU Martin Schenk. Luther rescues DS Justin Ripley from uniform duty to work with him again. Luther 2 has two cases consisting of four episodes. The first case involves a serial killer set out to make a name for himself with plans to then disappear. The second case revolves around twin brothers playing out a deadly game where they kill people and destroy property. DCI Luther contacts Alice Morgan who is in custody and also provides means for her escape. Besides his two cases Luther is blackmailed by criminals as he tries to help an acquintance and her daughter. During Luther 2 DCI Luther becomes more daring as he continues to bend the law as well as put himself in grave danger.
