Luther script
Luther  Season #1 Episode #1 (2010)
Synopsis: Luther is a brilliant but emotionally impulsive detective who is tormented by the dark side of humanity while hunting down murderers. Once the self-destructive detective knows the killer's identity, it becomes a psychological duel between predator and prey.

PURE MALEVOLENT PLEASURE in Madsen’s desperation.

LUTHER:

You’re going to fall.

MADSEN:

Oh, God -

Madsen tries to scrabble up. Can’t.

The walkway protests beneath him. A metallic groan. It jolts -

gives way a few more centimetres. Madsen is jarred - but hangs

on. Just. Over a chasm of darkness.

Luther watches with a kind of glee - a kind of madness.

LUTHER:

Where is she?

Madsen begins to SLIP - regains his hold - for the moment. His

feet scramble, seeking a toehold.

Reed enters - he’s got a CROW BAR. He’s followed by Teller.

Then several UNIFORMED OFFICERS, carrying SLEDGE HAMMERS.

Reed hammers and rips at the plasterboard wall, tears down

hands -

Teller and a uniformed officer join in. Frantic.
