Luther (Idris Elba) is devastated by news of his colleague's abduction

Luther is devastated by the news of his colleague's abduction and throws himself into the investigation, knowing Cameron has an ultimate plan that is far more horrific than any of his previous murders.

A desperate call from Caroline forces Luther to put his investigation on hold. At Caroline's house he comes face to face with Baba, Jenny's ruthless and vengeful gang boss. Baba considers Jenny her property and wants compensation from Luther for taking Jenny from her. Luther must either help her or both Caroline and Jenny will die. Baba wants him to prevent a witness, currently held in a safehouse, from implicating her grandson, Toby, in a forthcoming trial. Unable to see an alternative, Luther agrees, frustrated at once again finding himself forced to act outside of police procedure.

Idris Elba is DCI John Luther, Lee Ingleby is Cameron, Kierston Wareing is Caroline, Pam Ferris is Baba and Aimee Ffion Edwards is Jenny. Luther also stars Dermot Crowley as DCU Martin Schenk, Paul McGann as Mark North, Nikki Amuka-Bird as DS Erin Gray and Michael Smiley as DC Benny Silver.

BBC THREE Tuesday 21 June 2011

Our War – Caught In The Crossfire Ep 3/3

Tuesday 21 June
9.00-10.00pm BBC THREE

The third and final part of Our War follows the transition from bloody conflict to the fight for "hearts and minds" as civilians and the military are caught in the crossfire.

In 2009, 2nd Battalion Princess of Wales Royal Regiment begin their tour picking up body parts from an IED blast. Private Mike McCabe captures intense Taliban attacks on his platoon and is also filmed being shot during an ambush.

By 2010, the Scots Guards are fighting a very different war – a battle for hearts and minds. They teach the Afghan National Police (ANP) how to maintain security and fight according to strict rules, which aim to avoid civilian casualties. "Initially I was very wary of them," admits Sergeant Rab Brown.

Guardsman Daniel Clarke is filming when a rocket-propelled grenade fired by a member of the ANP hits a three-year-old girl, who is seriously injured.

A gunge-drenched challenge awaits the three contestants this week as they immerse themselves in a spot of Middle Age gong farming, as the historical game show presented by Dave Lamb and Horrible Histories' Rattus Rattus continues.

Oliver, Ciorstaidh and Hannah need to have their wits about them as they buzz into action to try to catch giant flies on their suits in the Egyptian Honey Slave game. And the gory gamers have to answer some toe-curling quiz questions on topics such as the Gorgeous Georgians, Awful Egyptians and Vicious Vikings, posed by the popular characters from Horrible Histories.

There is a lot at stake as there is one putrid prize waiting for the victorious contestant to take home at the end of the programme.
