Luther leaves Jenny in his flat to investigate an incident at a service station where a man with a baseball bat killed one motorist, maimed another and destroyed their cars. From CCTV footage it appears that he was rolling dice to select victims. The same man later enters an office disguised as a motorcycle courier and kills five more people before Luther arrests him, though in custody he refuses to speak. As Luther returns home to find that Jenny has killed Toby Kent after his attempted rape of her, the dice man's exact double prepares another outrage. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


When Luther returns home to his flat at the end of the episode, we see him go to the 21st floor. This could be homage to Sherlock Holmes who lives in 221B Baker Street. See more »

Benny Silver: [discussing a killer's possible MO] Bedlam Axis has been around since 1960s. It's used a lot like an RPG - role-playing games. So, the arrow going upwards indicates predictability, law and order. The arrow going across indicates unpredictability, chaos.

Maybe Too Much
12 September 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The creators of this show have such a propensity for violence that they create the utter scum of the earth to be the villains. The killings of innocent people randomly by a taciturn fiend with D & D dice is at the center of all this. But at episode's end we are in for a real surprise. Luther is also protecting the girl and is under the thumb of those porn kings. He is doing things that are so destructive. Anyway, it is almost too hard to watch. We also have a fly in the ointment that is revealed in this episode.
