Big smileYEAAA!!!!!!!!!!!
The VERY BEST of Psycho-drama 'Detective' shows  - 'LUTHER' is BACK ON BBC
Big smileI'm SO excited - no joke. This is simply the most brutal and ugly of all 'Detective' shows, but it is so darned good.
As much as many may not think, THIS is T.V. worth watching!
'Brutal/real-life Art'
Here's some 'season 2' stuff.

Right - the clips I posted were indeed from the second season.
 
As it turned out, I got more excited than I should have - they are just now showing 'Encore' presentations - and that is what I ended up watching, last night.
 
The most I've been able to find (on a little digging here and there) is "sometime in the fall".
 
Wonder if the BBC is purposely being elusive.
 
Also read this is the last season before the 'big screen'-version of 'Luther' comes out (which makes one wonder if that means no more t.v. series).
 
Side Note: If you were a 'Dexter' fan, you'd love this show.

Confused...there is a 4-hour marathon going on as I type (season 2). During this, I decided to see if I could find more info about 'season 3'.
Well...we get to wait a bit.
Started filming just this month.
 
From Wikipedia:
"On the 1st November 2012 the BBC Luther website and Luther Facebook page put up an announcement in the form of a video 'graphic novel' montage with details about the third series which will consist of four episodes. Shooting starts in November 2012"

Also looking forward to the new Series of Sherlock, as well :D

They have been showing repeats of Luther the past few weeks.  Very glad to see another season because I read something a while back that said there wouldn't be a 3rd season.  Several other new episodes and shows in next couple of months on BBC.  Law & Order: UK is back for its last season, and there is a new series, called "Ripper Street," starring Matthew MacFayden (Pride & Prejudice, MI5, Frost/Nixon, etc.) and I would like to see more "WhiteChapel" though wonder how different Ripper Street will be from it other than time setting (R.S. is set in 1899).  I love Matthew M.

Just to let y'all know, Neil Cross has written an episode for Doctor Who's upcoming second half of Series 7.

I cannot wait to see what he does.

I really like Ripper Street.  I was looking forward to seeing Matthew MacFayden in a TV series and he's great but I have gotten attached to the interesting character of his Sargeant.  The American Doctor is pretty good.
 
If and when new episodes of Luther return--I want more Alice.  The "Alice" character is somewhat different from most crime/mystery shows and she is evil but it is so subtle.

...and - COD - Neil Cross actually penned a 'Dr. Who' episode? THAT would be one for anyone to watch - even people not fans of 'Dr. Who'.

Yep, we have two top-of-the-crop Neil's writing for the show. Cross and Gaiman (did I spell that right? XD)

I'll be sure to update you when we actually know which episode he's writing. RUmours are that he's also writing for series eight, but considering the BBC doesn't normally comission the next series of a show so early, let alone announce anything more than a few months in advance, I wouldn't hoild that to heart. I am, however, expecting his episode to be one of the best (mind you, looking at the teaser video, I get the feeling all nine episodes will be top notch.



And also, a look at what was, for those who didn't/don't watch Doctor Who



EDIT: of course this would happen. The list of episodes indicates there's not one, but TWO episode by Neil Cross. Episode eight, "The Rings of Akathen", and Episode twelve, "Hider in the House" (previously titled Phantoms of the Hex). Of course, there's always a chance titles will be changed around a bit,as has happened before.)

Thing is, the BBC often doesn't announce airdates until within weeks. If tradition is anything to go by, I'd say that editing, and such could take three months, giving it a summer airing.

Meanwhile, I'll say that Neil Cross' two episodes for Doctor Who were AMAZING! I recommend watching them, if not the whole series. Hide Ranks a little higher than Rings of Akhaten, but both are very well-written and acted.

The new season of 'Luther' has already started...in Great Britian. 
 
Cod - You are correct about the BBC.

BBC One broadcasts only in Great Britian...and no, what is scheduled there is not scheduled elsewhere. Even their iPlayer is restricted.

Torrents, Pa. Torrents. :P

Technically, none of the BBC channels broadcast anywhere outside of the U.K.. That would be illegal.

But I feel it's stupid the way BBC America opporates, and they could easily show almost ALL the shows on all the BBC channels if they didn't just marathon three popular shows ad nauseam.

I went with DISH about 10 years ago. For the first couple of years I had BBC and BBCA then BBC disappeared. Being illegal would explain that.

Series 3 looks to be brilliant.

Although...seriously, BBC? Couldn't you give The Fades one more series?

Well, I've seen TWO episodes now...obviously, there will be two stories as the first came to a brutal, compact end...with a great post script.
I'll say the first story was far less grisly than the first season, but far creepier - extremely eerie, especially once one begins to understand the criminal.
I'll give Neil Cross this much - he strives for consistent quality with very rich stories; this is the third series (rather than season - took almost two years for this to make it to T.V.), and there are only four (4) episodes.
There is a high probability this is the final series (time for the movie), but it seems all are weighing the public demand...and may come back with a fourth series.

Love Luther movies but that first one of this season really pissed me off. There is no way in hell Justin, his Sargeant, would believe all the stuff they are telling him, and that then he would go against Luther. Justin is as loyal as they come so this storyline looks so contrived, and for that matter, 3 or 4 of the victims posted on the board had been solved so Luther didn't do it. AND I don't believe that former cop is who he says he is. Supposedly they want to take Luther down because he's dirty and a murderer but this guy was basically beating the crap out of Justin so how can he judge Luther?

I've been watching "Broadchurch", which started off slow but has been great last 2 episodes, and I really like "Silk" on PBS Masterpiece Mystery.

WinkYou NEED to see the second episode, BW! That is all I will say - other than *do not* miss a minute of it - especially the end.

Sorry, I know this isn't important, but I've gotten into the habit of explaining this endlessly on another forum.

America is pretty much the only Country that does "Seasons, Series". A few others do it, but it's a rare format that comes from a rigid schedule (I.E. if a show airs in the summer in 2010, it'll air in the summer of 2011, not the winter or fall).

the BBC, and indeed pretty much all U.K. television runs simply in series (Which is the equivilant of a season in the US). There is no rigidity to the schedule, so if a show premieres in July of 2010, next year another series can premiere in...oh, say, August, or February. Or the next series can air two years later. Sometimes longer.

Basically, every single show is run year by year, series by series. The showrunner will go to the BBC to commission a series. Outline of the story (or style in the case of non-plot-based comedies), a number of episodes, etc. Each show gets a certain budget allotment (Doctor Who and a few other shows get so much so they can pay for special effects, guest writers (Neil Cross is coming back next series, by the way), props, etc. Whereas a show like Luther can be on a smaller episode because the effects are easier to make, less episodes, and not a lot of people are getting paid.

Also, 4 episodes is fairly standard for criminal shows, in my opinion. Sherlock has 3. The Thick of It (Political comedy) had 3 episodes each in its first three series I think.

Just watched 3rd episode...it's a gut-wrencher; it will leave one just shaking the head.
4th (final) episode starts out REALLY messed-up and very twisted, but with an - oh boy! - a real surprise! (everyone knew 'Alice' was coming back...but the way she did - whoa!ConfusedShocked)
Watching it now.

ShockedIncredible last episode!
Will hold one glued to the chair - nothing turns out as one might think, but ya can't argue with it! Makes all the sense in the world to those who've followed the tales from the start.ConfusedBig smile
And yea, you see 'Alice' at her extraordinarily psychotically brutal and cruel self.
'Polar Opposites' make the best, most interesting couples, doncha know (*I* know!Big smile)  
Luther: "...shoot Alice..."
What happens next is eye-popping!
Anthony Hopkins, as Hannibal, has little on her, but one may very well find themself cheering for Alice.
There HAS to be not only be a movie, but another series - the fan base will not let this go.
Neil Cross is brilliant.
