|Idris Elba (The Wire, Thor) won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries for his riveting performance in this heart-pounding psychological drama. Elba stars as John Luther, the near-genius detective struggling with his own demons. Devastated by the brutal murder of his wife, Luther returns to policing in a different world. His old unit has gone and he's working in the newly created Serious and Serial unit, headed by former police complaints officer Martin Schenk. Luther quickly gathers together his team, rescuing his old partner, Detective Justin Ripley, from uniform. It's not long before they're dealing with their first case. A masked man wanders the streets of London, carrying out ritualistic murders in historic locations, working his way up to one final masterpiece... Crackling with energy and beautifully shot, this new mini-series sees Luther take bigger risks and face even darker challenges.|
Editor's NoteIdris Elba reassumes the lead role of detective John Luther for this Second Series of the BBC's popular detective drama LUTHER - which originally aired in the UK from June 14th-July 5th, 2011. The four installments that comprise Series Two - all of which appear in this collection - begin following the brutal slaying of wife Zoe, Luther's gross betrayal by friend Ian Reed, and Luther's self-imposed exile working on cold cases. Luther returns, yet this time, he's working for the nascent Serious and Serial unit, under the aegis of officer Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley). Very quickly, Luther reassembles his old cohorts, including Detective Erin Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) and Detective Justin Ripley (Warren Brown), and the group begins working on a baffling case involving a masked serial killer who wanders through London, committing ritualized murders in historically significant locations. This set contains all four Series Two installments.

|It only takes one glimpse at the American TV roster to deduce that crime dramas are about as hard to come by these days as Walmart stores. And, many times, the selection of police procedurals are of the same crappy quality as that of the huge, soulless conglomerate that casts its shadow of doom over communities big and small. And then there are some of the gritty cop shows that hail from the UK, such as the BBC’s Luther, which premiered in 2010, and features Idris Elba (who had been in the US TV series, The Wire several years earlier) as a brilliant, tormented detective in London....read the full review|

|BBC's Luther ends its first series on an incredibly dark note, with Detective John Luther (Idris Elba, The Wire, The Office) having been betrayed by his best friend and devastated by the murder of his wife, Zoe. As series two, which consists of four hours split into two stories, begins, Luther has been wasting away working cold cases. He is given the chance to come back to investigate current crimes, but with his old unit gone, he will now serve under Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley, Raw, Bleak House), a former police complaints officer who, with good reason, isn't sure that Luther should be a cop at all....read the full review|
