    I like it...more original than the usual police dramas. Idris is as fantastic in this as he was in The Wire!

    Great show.


    In my humble opinion one of the best BBC shows for many years.


    I think it will become a huge hit in the US if it gets picked up .

    It's no Wallander, and not even in the same league as Spooks, which is far and away the best British show of the last ten years!


    Don't buy Idris Elba in the role of Luther either. That said, it's a solid enough English drama.

    spooks was indeed very good maybe in the long run it will prove to have been much better butthe thrills that Luther has provided the frist 2 episodes are much more intense

    I was unconvinced after the first two episodes, but the show really hits its stride in Episode Three. Looking forward to the rest of this short series!

    I watched the first two eps and thought the serious loopholes deter from the series. When I saw the dog go into the furnace to get cremated, I thought why didn't forensics examine the dog. They don't do autopsies on animals over there in the UK? Seriously?? Then Luther continuing to let this psycho woman who killed her parents run around threatening his ex-wife. *facepalm*


    Really makes me not want to continue watching this.
