I’ve started to see: Luther Season One (2010)

https://i2.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71Cv%2Bc8-bEL._SL1500_.jpgLuther is a British psychological crime drama television series starring Idris Elba as the title character, Detective Chief Inspector John Luther, who works in London. A first series of six episodes was broadcast on BBC One from 4 May to 8 June 2010. The series was created and written by Neil Cross.

Plot: John Luther (Idris Elba) is a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) working for the Serious Crime Unit in series one, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in series two and three. A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes dangerous in the violence of his fixations. However, 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. He is unable to arrest Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson), the murderer in the first episode, and for the rest of the first series she becomes his confidante, giving him an insight into the motivations of other criminals.

  1. I liked Luther, especially series one; Ruth Wilson was superb. I think I missed some later ones but I’ll catch up on Netflix. Hope you’re enjoying them.

  2. Thanks for the reminder. I saw a couple of episodes and quite enjoyed them, but I’m rotten at keeping up with things on TV. Must see if the library has the DVDs . . .

    1. He’s v cool, isn’t he? I loved him as Stringer in The Wire – had no idea he was British then, though. Ditto Jimmy McNulty/Dominic West. But my favourite Wire character was Omar. And Bubbles was such a fool!
