Luther is a British crime drama TV series created by Neil Cross for BBC One. Along comes a series that stands above the gray landscape of indifference that blinds the light of his creativity, one of those shows is the British drama ‘Luther’. The direction of the show leads the viewer to enter into the heart and soul of John Luther, a dedicated police officer in a constant struggle to retain his moral compass because he dares to use questionable methods to ensure justice for the victims of the crimes More brutal within. A labyrinthine bureaucracy of a legal system whose very existence seems to try to secure the road to successful arrest and conviction is as difficult as possible.
Idris Elba is excellent at portraying this forged, fallible but noble detective, John Luther, who once again reflects the extent to which Elba’s range of action may even post The Wire. The audio track is loaded, insightful and electric, employing talents like Emiliana Torrini and her track ‘Gun’. One of the most interesting stories is the role of Alice Morgan, a young multiple assassin (brilliantly played by Ruth Wilson) that gives Luther a chilling insight into the minds of his suspects while challenging him on the sexual, intellectual and moral levels, He delves into the heart of his passion, John can see this, scare him and attract him leaving the audience on a steady cliff awaiting their fate. “Luther” reminds me of “number 23” and how obsession can totally destroy and destroy everything by taking everything with him.
