All 14 episodes from the first three series 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. The cast also includes Warren Brown, Dermot Crowley and Ruth Wilson.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
Well, Ruth Wilson, I haven't seen Showtime's THE AFFAIR but you were stupendous in the BBC drama serial LUTHER.
LUTHER may be the first drama serial that I binge-watched by renting the DVDs - two at a time from Netflix. This British psychological crime television series stars Idris Elba as the title character, Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. The first series of six episodes was initially broadcast on BBC One in May and early June 2010. A second and third season with only four episodes each were broadcast in consecutive summers. The series was broadcast for America viewers on BBC America beginning in October 2010.
The plots are dramatizations of John Luther's cases for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit in London, England. He is often consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals and is often hampered by his interactions with the women in his life: his ex-wife Zoe, his police superior, and Alice Morgan, his nemesis. He is unable to arrest Alice Morgan, the murderer in the first episode, and for the rest of the series she becomes his confidante, giving him insight into the motivations of other criminals.Read more ›
