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 says: “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, Spy), 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.
Here are a couple of photos from the Mirror and Daily Mail of some recent filming. It looks like Mr. Malahide might be playing a baddie or at least some sort of disruptive influence as far as Luther’s investigation goes. It sounds like it will be really good and I can’t wait to see it.
