The cast also includes Warren Brown, Dermot Crowley and Ruth Wilson.

Format: DVD
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.

'Luther' is a show that defines quality over quantity. There may be dozens of unremarkable carbon-copy crime dramas out there that focus on the standard typical lonely, brooding and haunted detective figure, but 'Luther' stands apart from the crowd by some margin.
Writer Neil Cross has created something of a gem here, but I fear it's Idris Elba's fascinating and frankly hypnotic performance as the titular detective that really sells this series. Elba is a tour de force in the role, and I daresay this will be one of the defining performances of his career, alongside his performance as Stringer Bell in 'The Wire'. Luther is a character who cannot be explained without making the guy sound like a cliche, and honestly I feel that no other actor could have brought this intriguing character to life with the energy, charisma, dedication or originality that Elba managed.
Totalling just 14 episodes across three seasons, 'Luther' takes viewers on an emotional roller coaster as we are given insight into the troubled world of DCI John Luther, and embark on numerous gruesome cases as the near-genius detective struggles with some serious personal demons that never seem to end.
It's one hell of a ride, and with the show returning for two specials in 2015, be sure to catch up on Seasons 1-3 before returning to this dark yet endlessly fascinating world, set to the stark backdrop of a particularly bleak 21st Century London as seen through the eyes of Luther.

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 had never watched any of the episodes and due to the amount of people talking about Luther I decided to buy the box set. I have watched the whole box set in one weekend. Its brilliant. I really do recommend buying this.

Great show but be warned that the extras contain big spoilers so don't watch them until you've seen the show first.

What an amazing program. I can't believe I didn't watch this for so long. Expert acting, evocative soundtrack, genuinely chilling storylines, I was absolutely gripped. Luther and Alice's relationship as it progresses is one of the best I've ever seen on TV.

Thoroughly enjoyed the first series but missed second so thought we'd get all three and watch the first again. Luther is a policeman and a law unto himself and the part is brilliantly acted by Idris Elba. Would thoroughly recommend this set if you haven't seen the TV programme and worth buying to keep and watch again if you have.
