Tonight, Luther comes to a close, and if fans are still reeling from the tragic turn at the end of last night’s episode (which Idris Elba and creator Neil Cross break down for us here), chin up: Ruth Wilson’s Alice is back! Finally. Watch a sneak peek of her entrance below. “Having Alice return is a kind of event, and you want to save the event for the most exciting point,” Cross tells EW. “So I wanted to make it as big a deal as possible and have as much fun with it as I could.” READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched episode 3 of Luther‘s third season, stop reading now. Creator Neil Cross and star Idris Elba weigh in on the tragic turn.

There are scenes that Luther creator Neil Cross writes that frighten him: “I’ve spent essentially 40 years of being scared of having someone under my bed, or having a bogeyman in the roof, or any one of a million horrors that I’ve visited on poor, innocent people in the course of Luther,” he tells EW. But there are also scenes he pens that make him teary-eyed: “When I write scenes of intense camaraderie and friendship, because I think that’s something that we all long for and aspire to, I tend to choke myself up,” he says. “So I went wrote that scene in [last night’s episode] where Luther hears clear evidence of Ripley’s fundamental goodness and loyalty, it made me feel very emotional. It makes me feel very emotional now when I watch it. I talk often about a kind of great, almost classical wound that Idris [Elba] gives the character — that John Luther is a wounded presence. This wound is caused so often by what he’s witnessed — by betrayal, and murder, and unkindness, and depravity — and all the man is looking for is love. And in that moment, he’s got proof positive of the evidence of love. You can see on Idris’ face how hard it hits the character. It’s a great, great moment.”
In tonight’s third installment of the four-episode third season, Luther and Ripley (Warren Brown) begin to chase a vigilante killer, played by Da Vinci’s Demons‘ Elliot Cowan. Watch them come face-to-face in our sneak peek below. Cross sees the character, Tom Marwood — who’s named after the famed 19th century British executioner William Marwood — as a kind of mirror image of Luther. “They have similar motivations and, in many ways, they have kind of similar methods,” he says. “There’s that great scene between Indiana Jones and Belloq in Raiders of the Lost Ark when Belloq says, ‘I am a shadowy reflection of you,’ and Indy says, ‘Now you’re getting nasty.’ Luther and Marwood have a very similar relationship, I think. It would take just a nudge to push either into the other’s psychological space. So that means in the end, Luther has to finally, finally make a choice about what kind of person he actually is.” READ FULL STORY
Luther creator Neil Cross takes immense pleasure in terrifying people, if he can. And he did with last night’s premiere. Know you are not alone if you slept on your couch because you felt safer there than in your bed or jumped at noises emanating from your attic. Credit for that man’s head going through the floor goes to director Sam Miller. “He phoned me up from set and said, ‘I’ve got this great idea! Why don’t we…’ and I just went, ‘Ohmygod, yeah! Let’s do that! Let’s do that!'” Cross tells EW. Tonight’s hour is slightly less disturbing as DCI John Luther (Idris Elba) closes in on that killer while he himself continues to feel the pressure from DS Erin Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) and “Grand Inquisitor” George Stark (David O’Hara), who are determined to use Luther’s partner, DS Justin Ripley (Warren Brown), to nail him as a dirty copper. In our exclusive sneak peek below, Luther and Erin have a little chat — and Elba is compelling as ever. “What I loved about that scene is the tension between the kind of massive integrity of his words and the slight deceptiveness of his actions,” Cross says. “Because in that scene, he’s actually planting a tracking device on Erin so that he can find her later in the episode.” And without spoiling it, that scene will yield another emotion entirely.

Tonight, Idris Elba returns as John Luther, the badass British detective, who, in season 3 of the dark BBC America drama, finds his methods under investigation as he works to solve more of the twisted murders fans of Luther, created by Neil Cross, have come to expect — and fear. Watch our exclusive clip below from the tense premiere, which has already aired in the UK, and you’ll understand why some British viewers were afraid to retire to their bedrooms afterward. “I heard a lot of people stayed in their living rooms. A couple was huddled up on a sofa — a true story — and I was like, ‘You’ve got to be joking! There’s two of you. Why couldn’t you go to sleep?'” Elba reports, laughing. “People saying, ‘No, we just felt safer in the living room’ — I mean, that’s hilarious.”
Watching the trailer for Luther‘s newest
series season, you’d never know that Idris Elba is having the biggest summer of his career, starring in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Indeed, he’s slipped right back into the skin of the best, most unstable detective in Britain. (How do someone’s shoulders convey so much emotion?)
Though the show has been awash with buzz since premiering in 2010, it’s actually been off the air since 2011. What’s happened since? New killer(s) on the loose, of course. Luther, still unraveling, of course. And Ruth Wilson’s Alice — she’s back, y’all, and she’s waving at us.
Check it out below:
BBC One has announced that season 3 of Luther, starring Golden Globe winner Idris Elba as a detective whose life gets worse as his caseload gets more twisted, will begin shooting this month. “There will be four perfectly dark, chillingly-formed episodes,” the promo below promises. Will Alice (Ruth Wilson) return? “Only Alice knows.” That better be a “yes.” READ FULL STORY
