Review Links – “Luther”

“Luther” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

Luther is a British psychological crime drama television series starring Idris Elba as the title character Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. A first series of six episodes was broadcast on BBC One from 4 May to 8 June 2010. The second series of four episodes was shown on BBC One in summer 2011. During the Edinburgh TV Festival, BBC One controller Danny Cohen announced there will be a third series. The third series began on 2 July, 2013.

The character of Luther is played by Idris Elba, who won the Golden Globe award for best actor in a miniseries at the 2011 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2012, a year after his nomination in 2011.


John Luther is a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) working for the Serious Crime Unit in season one, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in season two. A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes dangerous in the violence of his fixations. But Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals. For Luther, the job always comes first. His dedication is a curse and a blessing, both for him and those close to him.

EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

“Luther” represents some of the best of UK drama, it is groundbreaking in storylines and takes crime thrillers to new levels. The central character is flawed and is the new way in acknowledging and humanising how law enforcement is portrayed on our TV screens.

Luther – the central character has personal life challenges that he has to juggle with all the drama of his job of chasing down serial killers hell bent on life destruction – it’s a mix that is thoroughly engaging and has you not wanting to wait for the next installment in the continuing story lines.

The best UK TV for a long time. The equal of if not better than “Walking the Dead” and “Wire in the Blood” …
