LUTHER

About “Luther” is a gripping, psychological thriller driven by a brilliant and emotionally impulsive detective tormented by the darker side of humanity. Idris Elba (“Pacific Rim,” “Thor”) returns in the title role of the acclaimed mini-series which won him a 2012 Golden Globe for “Best Actor” in this four-night television event in September. John Luther, the near-genius detective struggling to cope with his own demons, is back under intense pressure – with two conflicting crimes to investigate and a ruthless ex-cop determined to bring him down. Luther’s life is his job, that is until love crosses his path and offers him a chance of happiness. Sienna Guillory (“Resident Evil,” “Love Actually”) joins the cast as Mary, a woman who works in a vintage clothing shop and meets Luther in a chance encounter. But is Mary ready to accept Luther’s past? And can Luther leave it behind? A self-destructive near-genius, John Luther might just be as dangerous as the depraved criminals he hunts. Luther shines a light into the hearts and minds of psychopaths and killers … and the shadowy spaces of his own soul. The series is created by Neil Cross and executive produced by Phillippa Giles. Luther returns September 3 at 10pm/9c, as part of Dramaville.
