Critic Consensus: Idris Elba remains the best thing about Luther in an all-too-brief season which packs a lot of plot into a short time frame.

News & Interviews for Luther: Season 4
Luther, whose first season remains its best, is going on too long. Time to let the weary detective return to his cottage and ponder the waves.
I hope that episode two slows things down. When you have a character as good as John Luther, and an actor playing him who basically is that man, it would be nice to spend a little more time in his company.
I didn't really mind not knowing what was going on because I was mostly just watching Elba.
In the end, as Luther walks toward the camera, his trademark trench coat, steely gaze, and a musical cue from The Cure the only accessories he needs, Luther is successful in that is leaves the audience hungry for more.
This new two-parter looks unlikely to reinvent the wheel, but for sheer entertainment value, there are still few drama series that can hope to match John's exploits.
