Reviews

The first three seasons of the BBC crime thriller series starring Idris Elba. Brilliant but flawed murder detective John Luther (Elba) sees it as his personal crusade to track down the depraved killers it is his job to identify. But as he struggles with personal demons, his strong moral code cannot always be relied upon to protect him from the dangerous violence of his own emotions and passions. Warren Brown, Dermot Crowley and Ruth Wilson co-star.

Boxset of Luther containing 6 discs and with a running time of approx. 812 minutes. Has an age 15 restriction and contains all episodes from the first 3 series. Picture and audio quality are excellent and overall presentation of the set very good.

Idris Elba stars as the dangerously flawed yet ultra moral John Luther a beaten up, life weary London murder squad detective. Luther has major problems with anger which isn't helped by his growing relationship with Alice, Ruth Wilson, who just happens to be a murder suspect and also a psychopath. Alice is the calm, cold, controlled and evil contrast to Luther's manic, lost, rage filled goodness and their pairing was a stroke of absolute genius. They have a huge amount of chemistry and sizzle on screen. Fortunately, for him, Alice is on the side of Luther and they share a strange love/hate relationship throughout the series.

There's not a lot of police procedure, in fact you hardly see the inside of a police station until series 3, the drama's all about Luther as a man and how the events of his life affect his ability as a detective and vice versa. You're more likely to see his emotional distress and personal rage than scenes of him racing through London brandishing a gun. By series 3 things are starting to change, they're certainly ramping up the tension, and there's more violence and gore however; I didn't find Luther particularly graphic or gratuitous. In fact, for a modern day detective drama with such hard hitting storylines, the series is quite unique in that it relies on the quality of acting and scripts rather than the thrill factor.

Had seen an episode on tv and was taken by its performance.
As viewer you are taken into the private life of Inspector Luther.
The bad guys are really bad and there is non-stop the feeling of urgency, to be quick, as otherwise more victims will appear.
Well performed and am looking forward to more episodes...

Say what you want about the 'Beeb', this is a truly great TV show. Whilst some of the scenes became often grotesque and/or peverted, Luther has maintained interest and a following like no other BBC detective thriller for a while. Without Idris Elba (DCI John Luther) this show would not be what it is. But that's not to take away from excellent performances from Dermot Crowley and Michael Smiley; I also have a soft spot for Ruth Wilson, who is just plain evil!

Once all these episodes drop off the iPlayer this boxset is going to be invaluable. With the third series now over, I know plenty of people (including myself) that will be rewatching series 1, episode 1 on July 29 when this comes out! And for those who haven't had the pleasure of watching, this would be a great present to introduce someone to John Luther.

But this may not be the end of course. Luther, the movie? In a recent interview with Ms Wilson : ""It depends if you go to the origin story of Luther. Alice may be involved, but she may come in at the end. It's that thing of do you go backwards, forwards or sideways?""

Either way - this Boxset is the only natural way to deal with the Luther finale comedown.

I watched this series again after the TV series and its still great. Luther is such an original character. Like all detective stories there are some flaws but its so watchable. I would recommend particularly if you like an inverted detective story.

Format: DVD
The box set of Luther series 1-3 is a 12 DVD collection of each of the episodes from the great BBC detective drama starring Idris Elba originally screened between 2010-2013. The detective genre is hugely over-exposed but this is a cut above pretty much anything out there. Idris Elba is absolutely magnificent as the troubled but genious detective in his first great role after his breakthrough in The Wire. This show is not about Elba but he is what turns an excellent concept and set of plotlines into an all-time great TV show.

The downside of Luther is how short it all is. There are only 14 episodes in total plus one Special Feature for the first series. Less may occasionally be more but more Luther would be good.

There is hardly anything with Luther that falls short of perfect. The choice of theme tune is superb. The outstanding Paradise Circus by Massive Attack is an excellent choice with its slightly haunting minor key arrangement accompanying the breathy vocals of Hope Sandoval. Eery and clever, just like Luther.

The visuals are explained at quite some length in the quality Special Feature for the first series. The use of colour is so well designed. Grey is not necessarily the easiest palette to work with but it looks good here. The subtle colours, clever use of angles, and interesting photography of London gives the audience a feel of being part of the unfolding action. It may help to be familiar with the filming locations of East London but this is so obviously London and so obviously now.

In each of the three series, Luther has two issues to deal with. He has crimes to solve and he has a bigger problem trying to take him down.
