Luther

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Character mistake: Luther and Ripley pretend they have not been on the boat and did not find the victim's body as they do not have a search warrant and do not want to compromise the case. However, under English law a police officer may legally enter any premises without a warrant in order to save life, prevent injury or protect property. Since they have a reasonable belief that the victim is being held prisoner on the boat and her life is in danger (as far as they know at that time she is still alive), they don't need a warrant. As experienced police officers, they are bound to know this.

Continuity mistake: Luther goes to see Zoe and the house is an end terrace with a red door. Later he goes back and it's mid terrace with a black door.

Suggested correction: No, I don't think this is an error. I think the house with the red door is Luther and Zoe's marital home and the house with the black door is Mark's home.

That's what I thought, but how did he know where Mark lived?

Alice Morgan: So, I've got bullets but no gun. That's quite zen.
