I had caught the odd Luther episode on telly but never had the time to see it regularly, so when I found out about this complete boxset I made myself get the supplies in, draw the curtains and watch a disc a day.
The production values are up there with Sherlock, the pacing feels continuous, this is quite good as it gives a sense that Luther's team are out doing their jobs every day, whereas some other murder dramas tend to end episodes as if everyone's really tired and are having a week on leave.
The first series is actually the most harrowing as Luther doggedly chases after some pretty nasty murderers. The other series seem like they're trying top it with some progressively less belivable storylines, but are nevertheless engrossing.
P.S. London could do with wider pavements and passageways, the way Idris Elba swaggers. One for Boris?
