Luther fans were left frustrated with how the drama ended this evening after accusing it of ruining a character and blasted it "f***ing depressing".
The tense drama concluded tonight as John Luther and Alice Morgan played a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Killer Alice went on a psychotic killing spree as she shot Luther’s partner DS Halliday in the head.
She then went on to shoot the detective in the shoulder and abdomen as she chased him around a derelict building.
Alice held Luther at gunpoint but he ended up pushing her off the scaffolding and to her death.
At the end of the episode, a bloody Luther was arrested for murder.
Fans flocked to Twitter in shock.

"Erm…I think I actually hated that episode. They ruined the best thing about the show, Alice’s character and the teamwork/chemistry between her and Luther. Plus everyone thinks Luther is a baddie AGAIN #Luther," another pointed out.
But others loved the ending and lavished the finale with praise.
A fan commented: "Alice was a psychopath why are we surprised? John should’ve gave her up ages ago.. poor Halliday."
Another remarked: "What an ending to Luther. Everyone’s face when Alice shot Halliday #Luther."
"@BBCOne Luther was absolutely outstanding! I don’t think much will match that for me this year. @idriselba and Ruth Wilson were phenomenal as always. Thank you #luther," one wrote.
