Did anyone else here watch the six-part series??

Personally, I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Perhaps it took a couple of weeks to get going but the two-part finale was, in my opinion, the finest piece of British television in a long time. It was gripping and had my whole family sitting on the edge of our seats. Ruth Wilson, additionally, was truly brilliant in her role and is an actress that Britain should be proud of. Alice Morgan turned into my favourite character in the series and, despite her crime in the first episode, was a real voice of reason and intelligence in John Luther's life. Some of the lines and phrases she had were truly magnificent!!

Is there anyone else hoping for a second series??

Better than nothing! Series one was fantastic. Totally ridiculous of course but it was never anything less than thrillingly fun.

The ending made me jump I really wasn't expecting that. I was more expecting the lady detective was going to get it when the lights when out.

Oh god yeah, I was open-mouthed for about five minutes after that. Totally ludicrous of course that he didn't even need to go for a check-up, in fact he seemed to forget there was a hole in his hand after that. biggrin.gif Bloody good episode though. If that's the last we've seen of Alice I'll really miss the barmy old girl.

I only started watching it this series, but I already find it utterly terrifying/unbelievable - yet it's completely gripping at the same time. Jenny murdering the weird bloke came as a huge shock.

The final episode was nothing short of magnificent. Epic in fact and I don't usually approve of that word since it's so misused but Luther really does do everything on an epic scale. It doesn't think small at all.

Jenny is an amazing sidekick to John too. Definitely a worthy replacement for Alice (although I like to think that Alice will be back when/if a third series happens).

I agree on the comments so far, just brilliant, and very very clever! I didn't watch the first series, but is it worth watching, as I can definitely see myself coming back for the (hopeful) third one.

Oh and I'm also LOVIN' Jenny too! Has the actress been in anything before, or was this her début?

Aimee Ffion Edwards has been in quite a bit of stuff including the first generation of Skins. And yeah the first series is fantastic although some people felt it didn't get going until about half way through. I personally don't think there's ever been a duff episode. Some of the killers in the first series were more terrifying than the two in the second and there was also John's relationship with his wife which played out pretty fantastically. You should defo watch.
