Very rarely do I get addicted to a show after one episode, but you can't but love Luther. Idris delivers a knockout performance and is just brilliant. With DCI Luther you are never quite sure what you are going to get but you know it will be something special.

Luther is darkly brilliant. Every interval of this miniseries is high quality. Watching DCI Luther bring twisted criminals to justice is consistently thrilling.

Idris Elba is a fantastic actor and this show really emphasises that. I recommend this to all you crime lovers as it is one of the best shows I have seen for that genre.

An okay crime drama. If it wasn't for Idris, I'd probably stop watching it. Not really sure why it hasn't been cancelled, honestly.

With the tormented Luther, it's sometimes tough even to identify who is the cat and who is the mouse. Writing and acting come together to produce characters, more than stories, who are powerful, surprising and ambiguous. It gets darker, scarier and more captivating with each episode as Luther matches wits with killers and cops alike.

Luther is a British crime drama about a man with good morales who isn't afraid to bend the law to make his assailants break. The series is well written and the cast is perfectly chosen. For a drama it still keeps you on the edge of your seat. The underlying plot is a good one... the show somewhat reminds me of Bosch. This show is recommend to the crime lover.

Watchable show but I'm struggling to see what the fuss is about. It's definitely one that if I miss an episode then I'm not going to worry.
