He's back!!!
1 January 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

After a cruel absence, Luther hit our screens like a force 9 gale, absolutely barn storming beginning, the episode kept a pace and intensity throughout. I was so caught up in events, and excitement, that parts of the story perhaps passed me by. They really did pull out all the stops with this one, from his kidnap, to the terrifying bus scene, to the shock visitor on the door.

If I'm totally honest, I thought this felt a little different to the last few outings for Luther and co, and not in a bad way, it had a vibe of Messiah (Ken Stott) and I utterly loved it.

They went for some big guns in terms of casting, Patrick Malahide is a total joy as a villain, and played his part superbly, Hermione Norris showed her vast talents also, but for me the casting of Wunmi Mosaku was genius, she is such a talented, measured actress, one who has the talent for making me utterly love her characters, I just hope they've not brought her in to bump her off.

That's the viewing I'm hopeful for in 2019!!

10/10
