TV Tonight: Idris Elba In 'Luther' Episode 2 - Will Crime Disrupt A Burgeoning Romance?

There's good news and bad news for Luther in this week's second episode of the current run.


Luther's hot date with Mary (Sienna Guilllory), in a greasy spoon

On the favourable front, his romance with car-crash Mary has taken a turn. After last week's rooftop rendezcous, the pair this week play coy in a cafe.

But... if it looked too good to be true, it is, with this steamy liaison interrupted by a call to crime.

Meanwhile, following last week's fisticuffs with Ripley, Luther is working on his own, determined to predict his copycat killer's next move.

'Luther' is, perhaps, not the most realistic cop show, but certainly one of the most enjoyable.
