LUTHER 8 p.m. on BBC America. This genuinely frightening detective show debuts its fifth season on BBC America on Sunday night. Idris Elba stars as a London detective; the season involves more killings to investigate, a serial killer and a cat-and-mouse chase. “This isn’t new territory exactly,” Margaret Lyons and Danielle Henderson wrote of the show on The Times’s Watching website. “But ‘Luther’ gets it right, achieving the kind of intensity other cop shows can only dream of.” Marshal candidates go through an internship followed by specialist training.

How else to explain the furor for the pretty good English portrait and figure painter?” He doesn’t dodge psychology; in Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings, Schjeldahl writes, the volatile artist found “a steadying and dispassionate, heaven-sent collaborator: gravity.” To address these very real economic concerns, Labor put forward serious, bold policies on complex issues that it argued overwhelmingly benefit the wealthy, in particular tax breaks on investment properties and retirees’ stock market dividends.
