Class! What an excellent series.
I’ve always liked Idris Elba – maybe it’s because of The Wire or maybe because his screen presence is so compelling. When our TVs schedules are filled with so much dross to have this little gem of a series appear is so refreshing.
Luther (Idris Elba) is a Detective Inspector in a Special Crimes Unit who has just returned to work after having recently recovered from a mental breakdown due to pressures of a marriage break up and over commitment to his job. His relationships with his ex-wife, his new colleague DS Ripley and a psychopathic but brilliant young lady are central to the development of the series. Each episode leaves one wanting to know how the plot will develop. There are of course the crimes to be solved and Luther’s unorthodox but canny methods.
I will not divulge any more but the climatic ending to episode 6 makes one want to know ‘what now?’ I strongly recommend Luther who anyone who appreciates ‘quality’ television drama.
Luther will discombobulate you…but, in a good way!!!
“Luther” the new BBC detective series lead by Idris Elba as DCI John Luther, is a riveting watch. This character, Luther, is a loose cannon primed to fire at will or by wonder, yet this detective’s intelligence and focus seems to keep him charging in the right direction. He and fellow officers appear to work on a rather intuitive level and their ability to relate to us ‘common folk’ and our reaction to injustice, is a magnetizing factor.
The relationship he has with his wife, Zoe, works well as a part of the machinery that helps reveal the different layers of his character. Beyond that, I must admit I feel slightly ambiguous towards her part, at this point, anyway.
But I am fascinated with Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson of “Jane Eyre” 2006). I had a very good friend with similar characteristics as she; the writers, as well as the actress, portrayed Alice as if they knew my friend intimately. Of course, it is difficult to know the ‘deviosity’ of which such people are capable, especially when your affections are securely attached through years of shared experiences. As I watch Alice Morgan attempt to secure even the friendship of Luther, I think, “Oh, go ahead, trust her.” And then, I remind myself that this character killed her parents! This goes to the depraved depth of the sociopath’s personality and how they can manipulate us. Chilling! Great stuff
For anyone who holds an interest towards the Behavioral Sciences, and desires to watch something that will entertain, as well as appeal to that part of your brain, give “Luther” a shot, you won’t be sorry.
