Season Three of the critically acclaimed BBC series, Luther, is arriving on our shelves even as I write.
If you have not yet seen this one treat yourself to one of the finest British crime dramas of recent years. And given how very good the British track record for this kind of programming is, that’s saying something.
Superior writing, fine, fine acting and some very unique storylines, this series has it all. They are also very dark and occasionally disturbing. You may know the star Idris Alba from some of his other recent offerings. He had a starring role in this summer's block buster, Pacific Rim and was in Ridley Scott's Prometheus from 2012. He was in the excellent multi award winning American crime drama from several years ago, The Wire. He has even been touted as possibly taking over the helm for the James Bond franchise, after Daniel Craig hangs up his martini glass- a rumour he is vigorously denying. Somebody else who is having their name thrown around? Michael Fassbender, who was also in Prometheus.
Do watch this series in order or you'll be lost. Besides they are that good you really don't want to miss a single episode. His star is definitely on the rise so expect to see a lot more of him.
