Luther Returns!

Idris Elba is set to return to the BBC with 4 new episodes of Luther.

Filming isn’t due to start until early next year, but they are promising big, bold, surprising (and scary) viewing. Perhaps a little Alice Morgan …?

Luther Returning to the BBC! (and much more)

Okay, it’s only for two, one hour episodes – but who cares! The new episodes won’t air until late next year, but Idris Elba is worth waiting for.

Also new next year will be: a four-parter dealing with murder in rural Scotland; a series that imagines a Scotland Yard detective working in a 1940s Nazi controlled London; a Brighton based ensemble cop show; an 1886 secret agent series; a contemporary political thriller; and a second series of Top of the Lake.
