"Luther" is the Latest in the Best of BBC
Sunday night was the American premiere of the BBC miniseries "Luther". Creator Neil Cross ("MI-5") writes a brilliant character in Alice Morgan, a woman who kills her family in the opening episode, but leaves no evidence. She is pursued by DCI John Luther, a man with an anger problem and his own sense of justice. I'm not going to give you the usual summary. I'm just going to say WATCH IT!!!! You won't regret it. The chemistry between Ruth Wilson (Alice) and super hot Idris Elba (John Luther) is undeniable. Both characters are uber intelligent, possibly genius. Cross describes it as a chess game, both needing to one up the other. It's a terrifically acted game of cat and mouse. Even the opening titles are great. The soundtrack is beautiful and fitting. The direction is by Brian Kirk is subtle but effective. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
Sundays at 10pm on BBC America
