A decent series,
This review is from: Luther - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I wasn't too sure about 'Luther' when it first started but it definitely got better as the series progressed. It had moments of tension, some compelling stories and in general a good cast.
At times I found the acting to be slightly off by a couple of character's including Idris Elba as Luther but by and large he had a very strong presence and he suited the role. I also found Saskia Reeves a bit hit and miss as DSU Teller but in the main the performances were good especially Nicola Walker as the wife of a serial killer in episode four. Ruth Wilson was also consistantly good as the intelligent but dangerous Alice. This was a series that didn't pull any punches at times and it was actually something I looked forward to watching which is always a good sign.
Will there be a second series? I think and hope that there will be as this is one of the best police dramas to emerge for quite a while and I recommend it without question. Four and a bit stars.
