Luther returned to BBC One on Tuesday night, with Idris Elba reprising his role as the titular character in the dark crime drama.
The series opened in a typically terrifying fashion, with a woman being chased down the street by a young man who turned out be one of her ex pupils, who in turn was brutally murdered in a park.
Despite the tension in the opening scenes, fans were left distracted as they admitted they were struggling to see what was happening on screen in the night-time scenes.
Taking to Twitter, one posted: “Why is @BBCOne filming of #Luther so dark?! Literally this is why I didn’t watch it last time.. Literally can’t see sod. All in this program.”
As another grumbled: “I can barely see anything, why is it all shot in the dark #Luther.”
“@bbcluther #Luther Hey this is looking a bit dark and I’m not talking about the drama. I’m scuttling around my remote looking for my brightness,” added a third.
While a fourth agreed: “It’s all dark so can’t really see #luther.”
Fans complaints come after the cast of the BBC One series admitted that this instalment is the “scariest yet”.
Teasing the plot of the new four-part series, Idris said: “This season is extremely complex. There is one antagonist, one killer, but so many things fall out of that and it starts to unfold and unfold.”
Dermot Crowley, who plays DCI John Luther’s boss and mentor DSU Schenk, also promised that there will be moments as terrifying as series 3’s killer hiding under one of his victim’s beds.
“That’s the kind of quality we’ve got in series five,” he said, adding: “This definitely is the scariest yet,” before admitting some sequences are “f**king horrible”.
Luther continues this week at 9pm on BBC One.
