9:30pm – Friday, March 2 on ABC1
DCI John Luther’s (Idris Elba) colleague Detective Justin Ripley (Warren Brown) is in the clutches of failed art student Cameron Pell, and Luther must work out the psychology of persuading Pell to spare his life and in time to thwart Pell’s final murderous set piece.
Luther’s career and Ripley’s life are on the line and his focus is not helped by Jenny’s (Aimee Ffion-Edwards) ruthless and vengeful pimp who is demanding compensation for stealing her protege.
Pell is emulating a serial killer from an earlier age and taunting Luther and his team. His plan for a busload of schoolchildren is chilling and final and plays to a disappearing act to cap them all.
