I know the BBC announced this a while ago, but I just wanted to say how happy I was when I heard that Luther would be returning to our screens.
Luther was crime drama about a brilliant yet highly strung detective who had just returned to work after a suspension. The show had a variety of interesting characters including a pretty sociopath, a crazy ex-soldier, dodgy police officers and the lead character Luther, played wonderfully by Idris Elba from The Wire.
Ah, The Wire! Apparently, there are two kinds of people in this world: those who haven’t seen The Wire yet, and the rest of us who feel really sorry for you! 🙂 The Wire was an excellent American crime series created by Simon Davies. Some say it was the best TV series ever made.
Anyway, back to Luther. It consisted of 6 episodes and each one was a gem. I’d love to write more about it, but I’m running out of time! We’ll have to finish this another time! 🙂
