It must be me that I am the only one who keeps nodding off and everyone else is watching a very exiting programme. I find it a very slow series which is a great pity because there a fantastic actors in it.

Puts US Drama to Shame
Agreed there are plot holes, and big dollops of melodrama. But Luther is a great drama because of this rather than despite of it. It is pure entertainment manages this with some beautiful production and character (not necessarily characterS). While US shows try to be 'gritty and realistic' and get it horribly wrong (see US version of Shameless when compared to UK show... which still manages to be dreadful despite an almost identical script), Luther entertains and does so with style, a great lead and even better music.

6.5/10
Idris Elba is a fascinating actor - loved him in the wire and his cameo in the american office. Luther has great potential and some great storylines albeit a bit ridiculous at times. Get rid of the lurking passive British atmosphere that is common with all British TV shows and replace it with a unique and realistic quality similar to HBO shows such as the wire, the sopranos etc. I think better supporting actors are needed. Some of the villains like Alice are overplayed and the acting becomes cringeworthy. However the last "bedlam axis" villain I thought was played really well. A bit more sophistication, a few better cinematographers and a HBO writer or two on the team would turn this into an awesome programme.

Entertainment At Its Best
Despite plot holes here and there lets remember this is a drama and a exceptionally fine one. Most entertaining, superb acting and very engaging. I look forward to more, the sooner the better.

awesome and i want more
I feel slightly short-changed after only 4 episodes, but I enjoyed it immensely and the clever way he solves his problems. i hope it comes back next year, but I want the full 6 episodes next time.

Best show on the box. Idris Elba is magnificent; just love this guy. Don't know what I'm going to do on a Tuesday night now. More please, and soon.

Amazing
I do not understand the rating nor the bad comments. This truly is the best British crime series on TV for the last 10 years!!
Rocky 7:53pm Tue 5 Jul
 
   
Better than its rating
Whilst this is a deeply flawed series, the character of Luther is interesting and the plot is unusual. Idris Elba puts a lot in to this character and is worth a watch. You will waste an hour on far worse than this.

Engaging
Absolutely great!!! If only there was a real life Luther in the world to solve these nasty crimes and get these nasties off the streets !
Secret Star 10:06pm Sat 2 Jul
 
   
Awesome
I love this show, and am gutted there is only one episode left, Do miss Alice in the last episode. It's more fun with her. I think the acting is brill and the story lines are interesting, and sadly realistic, there are many crazies in our world, only wish we had a real Luther to sort them out. Love Warren Brown as his devoted puppy eyes sidekick. Love it, Love it, Love it

My Idris Elba Mancrush!
Idris Elba is a cracking Actor. He was great in The Wire, but he's wasted in Luther. It's one of those shows that with better writing, could be sharp, but regrettably it's poorly written. I only watch it for Idris!
TC 9:14pm Thu 30 Jun

Just love this show.
Idris Elba was once again fantastic! This is truly a great series, so sad to think there is only one more episode to go. Love it.

Just Plain Boring
As Stringer Bell in 'The Wire' he was great. In this he is wasted. a character I just cannot believe in. Poor Story, poorly produced.
Wire Fan 8:30pm Thu 23 Jun
 
   
It ranges from good to truly awful!
I want to like it but it keeps being pants. I did like the psycho lady in the first series but by the last two episodes my face was one of derision. It plumeted and is now staggering barely on it's feet, but it could be good, just needs some...intelligence.
Rocketboy 7:37pm Wed 22 Jun
 
   
Absolutely great !
Can't stop watching for a second.
Little Mo 10:27pm Tue 21 Jun
 
   
Brilliant,brilliant, brilliant!!!!!
Just love this show. Idris Elba is fantastic, he certainly has the 'it' factor. Loved him in The Wire, but this goes one step further. More please.

Started average; went down hill
Just finished being shown in OZ. The worst cop show I've seen for years. How incompetent is this guy: how many cops does he take to oversee a blackmail drop? Three should be plenty. Oh dear, one of the bad guys got away, how did that happen? The first 4 episodes were OK; but the writing in the last 2 was just laughably awful.

Simply Awesome
Nothing more to add.
Only good TV please 6:26pm Sat 3 Jul
 
   
Brilliant. When will there be more?
Truely excellent series with fantastic acting and storyline. Idris Elba was great in The Wire and continues the good work here.
Stringer Bell 8:50pm Tue 15 Jun
 
   
Compulsive viewing!!
Compulsive viewing and can@t believe series is over! Bring on the next series soon. Everyone brilliantly cast, why can't we have more great action series like this. Can't wait for the next one!
Jools 8:26pm Tue 15 Jun

elscottio 8:18pm Fri 11 Jun
 
   
only 6 episodes?
hopefully they make a second series because this show was fantastic - 4.8 - how come was at least a solid 8/10 well done Idris!

Finale
This was a brilliant show, with fantastic acting. But the finale left me a little disapionted considering the fast pace of the rest of the episodes I found the last slower. However i dont think this ditracts too much from the rest of the series.

now what...indeed...
what a tour de carte...not at all predictable...superbly developed...not sure of the outcome...great story...getting better and better!
coebus 10:06pm Tue 8 Jun
 
   
What's up?
How come this rates only 4.6 when most comments are very positive - apart from the moron "racist". Excellent series bring on the next one.

Disgraceful eqality
must be pure fiction - a black man with any authority in Englad ha ha ha ha ha by black I don't mean other ethnicities like the old Raj colonies ha ha

@racist
...you owe me a new keyboard. Seriously though. This must be the first BBC drama where the black character is not some token two-dimensional PC goody-two-shoes (Survivors, Paradox to name but two). Thoroughly enjoying watch.
