A self-destructive near-genius, Luther might just be as dangerous as the depraved criminals he hunts. Luther follows his own moral code as much as the rules of criminal law. But he quickly becomes locked in a lethal battle of wits with Alicea, a beautiful, highly intelligent serial murderer, and his decision-making process becomes increasingly murky. Luther's lonely path pulls him towards the very edge of temptation.

One of the best shows out there. All the characters are so intriguing and complex. I pretty much watched all three seasons in a row 'cause it is so good!

Liked Idris Elba’s “big” screen presence in “Dark Tower 2017“and “No Good Deed 2014” but not so much in “100 Streets 2017.” In this BBC TV series, he played a highly intuitive London DCI who is at times super gentle and at times super violent. S3 have Luther chasing down a fetish serial murderer ★★½ and a vigilante killer ★★★★ while facing an internal investigation to the deaths of people close to him personally and professionally. It was too convenient but a welcome surprise that Alice Morgan the stalker reappeared when Luther was in deep trouble and served up a nice twist at the end.

I typically prefer comedy series, but this incredibly dark and violent British drama hooked me with great acting and writing as well as its look. It deals with the dark side of humanity much more than any other series I watch, but the miniseries format (short seasons of hour-long episodes) prevented me from getting too dragged down by it. I don't think I would have been able to stick with it if the seasons were as long as American TV seasons typically are. You may want to take your time and not binge-watch it, though it's so good you will probably feel compelled to binge.

entertaining, just throw reality out the window while watching as there's no way his maverick police style would be tolerated in real life.

Excellent police drama. The right in the wrong, corruption, the wrong that is right. It is hard to be a good cop.
Well done with great acting and lots of tense moments.

Violence: Unnervingly real depictions of physical and psychological violence-- not for youngsters; sensitive adults be warned.
