Definitely recommend this well written, acted, and produced series. I've just finished watching the second season in DVD and am definitely hooked and anxious to see the next series.
This is a great police procedural with layered character development and is a somewhat dark and moody drama and by this I mean: It's not a flashy, barbie/ken caricatured, car chasing, CSI type show. In BBC form it does of course have good humorous lines thrown in and reels you into the subject matter as well as into the lives of the characters. In fact, in some ways it feels more like a novel to me.
Must say I loved the relationship between Alice and Luther and missed seeing as much of Alice in the 2nd Season but the new characters and stories didn't disappoint in the least. I can only hope that this series continues for sometime to come.
Also, Season 1 had 6 episodes. Season 2 only had 4. (A bit of a rip-off, in my opinion.)
In addition, Season 2 was not as well written as Season 1. If I was writing, for the series, then I would have taken it in a different direction - one that made greater use of Season 1 characters. So, I thought the series missed some good opportunities.
Furthermore, the 'big ending' of the 4th episode, of Season 2, fell flat. It became stupid and implausible - as if it was written by somebody who was unfamiliar with the series; it seemed out-of-place, for the caliber of the show. I was expecting better.
That aside, though, and despite my underlying disappointment, the Second season's episodes were largely-entertaining.

Another favourite. This is also a very good series.Enjoyed season 1 more. Same actors who do a terrific job. Best series I have ever watched on television.Published on Nov. 28 2013 by sharon George
Superbly realistic with all the tension and suspense of a good mystery set in central/east London. Top class cast and acting, and Idris Elba is unsurpassable.Published on March 24 2013 by elizabeth green
