    The BBC series has been good; love what was done so far. There was a teaser which didn't have much to see on Netflix and I hope to have an actual trailer. Are there members here who are fans of the series and is there anything you'd like to see in this new movie?

    I have really enjoyed Luther. I wasn't too keen on the last season/series overall, but I think a good movie could do him justice again. I just want a good story.

    I really loved Luther. I'd like to see how in the hell he could possibly get out of this jam without prison time. But seeing all that went down, and all that Luther did, I think that possibility is fairly slim, so I would really like to see how the writers handle it.

    The last couple of series (4 & 5) I thought they dragged stories which could've been told in one or two episodes, but I was glad to see the characters back. I was stunned at the end of it and how reminiscent it was to the teaser from the pilot episode.
    DSU Schenk must have some suspicion George Cornelius had something to do with the chain of events that happened. In London, do they consider a copper's sentence based on the outstanding duties they perform in the line of duty? I'm hoping that was under consideration or Schenk had it resolved or DCI Luther had time served by the beginning of the movie? Maybe. Probably not.

    One of my favorite series, Idris Elba and especially Ruth Wilson are fabulous...
    Yet, how the heck the guy hasn't been thrown into a dark cell by now is beyond me, but I love watching it...

    I'm a huge fan of the show, even as it got more and more ridiculous and I'll watch more as long as Idris Elba is interested in doing them.

    But it's going to be damn weird to watch the show with no more Alice.

    I don't believe Alice is dead; the climax was so similar to what happened to Henry Madsen. It seems crazies have 9 lives in Luther; the only reason Madsen died was because of the hands of Alice. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alice wakes up from a coma somewhere in the movie.

    I'll admit I was going to be skeptical about Ruth miraculously surviving, but according to this Collider article, Ruth Wilson is indeed returning. They don't say how but I wonder if she'll be a figment of Luther's imagination, haunting and mocking him as he tries to capture the serial killer.

    Luther did love Alice in his own way; I am convince it was anger that triggered her to kill her parents. I don't buy what Luther mentioned in Series 5, it was meaningless and no motive. We see how betrayal or the thought of betrayal really erupts her; the sign of it was when she killed Madsen and Luther was pissed off at her and didn't want to see her again. She exploded in a blind rage that scared me. There must be some element where there's some MK Ultra programming going on with her parents where she could be at Oxford University at 13 years old. This mind bending technique had consequences and something went wrong IMO.
