 Luther: Season 2


 

  Review by Suzanne 11/12/11

I have not seen the first series of "Luther", but I read up about it. I have seen commercials for it on BBC America as well. It always looked really good. Now that I've seen the second series, I am definitely going to have to go back and see the first one.

It's a really good, intense Police drama, and more. Luther is a really interesting character, similar to Dr. House - someone who is brilliant and great at his job, yet really messed up psychologically. All of the characters are really interesting, as are the cases that Luther cracks. My only regret is that there are only 4 episodes! It is so good, I really wanted it to go on and on.

There are no extras or features on the set, either, which is a darn shame. I hope that in the future, they do a complete series set, and have features. I would love to get that.

More Information:

The dark psychological drama starring Emmy nominee Idris Elba (The Wire, American Gangster) as John Luther, the near-genius detective struggling with his own demons, returns with two distinctive, thrilling crime stories.

Crackling with energy and beautifully shot this series sees Luther take bigger risks and face even darker challenges. Devastated by the brutal murder of his wife, Luther returns to policing in a different world with two distinctive, thrilling crime stories unfolding over four episodes. His old unit has gone and he’s working in the newly created Serious and Serial unit, headed by former police complaints officer Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley, Babel). Luther quickly gathers together his team, rescuing his old partner Detective Justin Ripley (Warren Brown, Shameless) from uniform, and it’s not long before they’re dealing with their first case.

A masked man wanders the streets of London, carrying out ritualistic murders in historic locations, working his way up to one final masterpiece. At the same time Luther’s trying to rescue Jenny, an old acquaintance’s daughter from the seedy world of prostitution. But his mission to give Jenny a new start in life comes with a high price and he’s caught between breaking the rules and the mobsters that run the world of prostitution in London. And then, of course, there is Luther’s ongoing alliance with the beautiful psychopath Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson, The Prisoner) to consider… Crackling with energy and beautifully shot, this series sees Luther face the question: What if your worst enemy was your own conscience?

Idris Elba was honored at the 42nd NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special. The original miniseries was called “terrific” by USA Today, and Variety said that “… there haven’t been many recent offerings in this genre on either side of the pond superior to Luther.”
