A bit cr@p really I thought.
Plot ropey, technically poor also with shocking continuity (shots of actors with mouths closed when they were supposed to be talking). And they’d nicked* an actress from The Shadow Line + one of the seedy locations also.
Hopefully will get better, thought the last series was good.
* OK, so there’s only a “talent” pool so deep I guess.Posted 6 years agojimsterMember
Enjoyed it, but have to agree with previous comments regarding continuation from last series, plot being a bit thin – how did he get the pass-card for the insitution to chuck over the wall, and how did Punch get in the back of the car without anyone noticing?
I also had trouble hearing what he was saying for the first 5 minutes or so… 😕Posted 6 years agomuppetWranglerMember
Can some one fill me on the back story. I didn’t see the last series.
What happened to Luther’s missus?
Who is the woman in the psychiatric unit and why did he slip her what looked like a keycard in the apple? Assume its for her to break out but why would he be helping her to break out?Posted 6 years agoCoorooMember
Case Histories suffers a bit from the fact that the books are written with a wonderfully light touch, wit and darkness combined. Rather like a dramatisation of Jane Austen, all you’re left with is the plot, which without the authorial voice can be a bit thin.
Mind you, I loved it! It’s not supposed to be a straight cops’n’robbers show.Posted 6 years ago
You can’t compare Case Histories to Luther, they are both very different, Case Histories is quite funny I think and take it as it’s meant, light hearted.
Luther was good, didn’t even know there had been a first series, only watched it tonight so glad I didn’t read this thread earlier. Hate that whole sitting on each of seat though I’m rubbish!!!Posted 6 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
I’ve worked with him, and he is a hunk (even though he was made up to look like he’d fallen into a threshing machine most of the time). Seriously method though. I didn’t see him out of character for the best part of 4 weeks. A few months later we met a party, and it was weird, he knew me but I didn’t feel like I’d met him beforePosted 6 years agoKevevsMember
I thought Stringer Bell was a fascinating character in The Wire and thought he should have his own series. Not seen Luther yet, but I’ve set my parents sky+ to record it as I have only pleb TV. I imagine Luther to be a nice suited, well respected, silent but deadly character, living outside or on the edge of the law, running on his own intuition and experience, all shades of grey, etc, etc…Posted 6 years ago
