Luther (2010)- Trailer

Luther (2010)- Plot

The series starred the legendary Idris Alba as Luther; alongside him in the lead cast are Ruth Wilson, Steven Mackintosh, Indira Varma, and other actors.

The show’s story revolves around Detective Chief Inspector John Luther, who is an honest and hardworking police officer, always dedicated to his job working for the serious crime unit. He is also very self-obsessed and possessed so much by his work that sometimes he becomes violent and takes matters into his own hands.

Even though he has lost a lot due to this habit, he still cannot help himself stop getting obsessed with dark and horrible crimes. This habit was triggered when he encountered the psychopath and murderer Alice Morgan, but he could not charge her with anything due to lack of evidence. Alice Morgan stayed her chief focus and the most significant enemy throughout the show but a companion in disguise.

Luther (2010)- Ratings

The acting of Idris Alba took the show to the next level, and arguably this can be called the best performance he has ever delivered. He also won several awards for it. The show has a global audience and has an excellent rating of 8.4 out of 10 on IMDb and 88% on Rotten Tomatoes.
