A new trailer has been released for series five of BBC crime drama Luther.

As his face comes into view, the message “this will hurt” flashes up on the screen.

The trailer finishes by announcing Luther will return to BBC1 and iPlayer “soon”.

Series five will contain four episodes and is penned by Neil Cross.

Luther has been a huge success for the BBC and has been sold to more than 230 territories.
