Series Three: Episode 2 is the second episode of Luther, Series Three.
This is the twelth episode of the Luther series.
Luther investigates the deaths of Dani Lane and her husband Craig, the people he was trying to telephone when he and DS Ripley had their dust up at the station. He tells Ripley to concentrate on Ken Barnaby and the Jared Cass murder and leave the Lane investigation to him. Luther sees obvious similarities to the murder of Emily Hammond and the 30 year old Shoreditch Creeper murders but the retired police officer in charge of that case, Ronnie Holland, is found dead in his house. The file however eventually leads him to William Carney who now lives in a retirement home and who has frequent visits from Paul Ellis.
