Idris Elba returns as ‘Luther’

by | Mar 4, 2015 | All, TV News

Golden Globe winning actor Idris Elba reprises his iconic role as DCI John Luther as he begins filming in London for a Luther two-part event special.

Luther’s back. Pitted against his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and hell-bent on retribution, he’s drawn into a terrifyingly complex case that pushes him closer to the edge than he’s ever been.

Idris Elba said:  ‘It’s great we’ve been able to do this Luther special. John is so close to my heart, he’s part of me. The fans won’t be disappointed with his return – it’s explosive and definitely goes up a gear!’

Written and created by Emmy nominated Neil Cross and directed by Sam Miller (No Good Deed, Fortitude) this Luther 2×60-minute special will also star Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Inbetweeners Movie), Darren Boyd (Fortitude), John Heffernan (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Ripper Street) and Patrick Malahide (Indian Summers, The Paradise), with Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley returning as Benny Silver and DSU Martin Schenk respectively.

The special is due to transmit on BBC One this autumn.
