My fellow critics have been raving about Luther for the past month, and I couldn't be happier, or more amused. I've been saying this is an amazing show since I caught its UK run. The acclaim doesn't surprise me. It's as if everyone suddenly remembered that Idris Elba is one of the best actors on the small screen. Pairing Elba with both the always watchable Indira Varma (Torchwood) and material written by Neil Cross, who also leads the writing staff for a little show called Spooks (or MI-5 to the American audience), was a brilliant idea. The final product is one of the best crime dramas I've seen, possibly even better than Prime Suspect. Luther has been compared to that series, and it's a worthwhile comparison; they're both quality and both worth watching over and over again. This is the third time I'm watching the series through, and I'm still having my breath taken away.
