Luther: Episode One (BBC-1 4 May 2010, Indira Varma)

Published

on

In the first episode of Luther, intelligent DCI John Luther is back on the force after a leave of absence following his bringing to justice of killer Henry Masden but he is very quickly thrust back into the action with the murder of the parents of former child genius Alice Morgan. To John’s eyes it is clear that Alice is the killer but there is not a single shred of evidence to mark her as guilty.

Alice seems to thrive on the knowledge that she is untouchable but without the murder weapon Luther is seemingly powerless to bring her to justice.

The opening scenes are fantastically paced, set the scene that Luther takes things rather too personally and Ruth Wilson as Alice proves what a capable actor she is, surely destined for major things.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
