Episode 5.1
2 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

What I like about Luther is that it is just plain bonkers gruesome fun. More mad and bad, the better it gets.

Where else would you get a series where a cop has his own stalker who herself is a serial killer.

The opening episode of the fifth series had the bonus of a killer in a clown mask with led lights so cctv cameras could not catch him properly. This clown faced killer brutally kills people and his psychiatrist comes forward and tells Luther who he might be.

I was surprised Luther did not arrest her for doing such a bad job on treating her patient!

Crime boss George Cornelius also has a run in with Luther when his son goes missing and he thinks Luther might be involved somehow.

Tense, thrilling and unnerving with a few twists. Three more parts to follow.
