BBC’s Luther 2nd Season – Idris Elba

30 Jan
Luther (TV series)

 

 

Here’s my response to the many e-mails I received on Luther, do I know?

Yes,  Yes….there’s going to be a second season!

BBC did announce Luther second series will be airing in the Spring!.  It will broadcast as two two-hour long specials, on BBC One; no dates published yet.  They just finished filming.

It’s so hard to believe when Luther originally aired in the UK, the ratings were said to be decreasing during the series. The series was up against such shows as against ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and Coronation Street; which played a major reason.

I must admit, the fans who created such a stir frenzy that the series was definitely a must see; surely proved that by having such positive feedback of the series was the catalyst of BBC One’s decision to allow the series to be included in the line-up of many cable networks!

And even when it could n’t get any better, Idris Elba received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.   Although the Golden Globe award went to Al Pacino, You Don’t Know Jack; the nomination clearly shows the decision to continue the series was definitely a good choice!

Many of you have asked, who is my favorite character?  Of course, Idris Elba who plays John Luther!  Then there’s Ruth Wilson, who plays Alice.  My favorite quote by her?  ” I did it for YOUUUU”!  Her acting, well let’s say..so believable!

With Neil Cross’s writing, the Luther cast and our love for knowing what’s going on across the pond, I believe we all are anxiously waiting for “What’s next?”.  The acting is so superb and drama to the highest!  I’m wondering, are you wondering?

If you are on Facebook and haven’t done so already, you can join the page name Luther, join the Discussions tab to be part of all the buzz with people around the world, all waiting and telling what they liked about the series!  And I’m sure, also the second series when it begins airing in a few months!  Everyone is sooooo bloody happy!

See! Once again, I didn’t give too much away, for those who have n’t seen it (see my first commentary).  It’s now on DVD, so it’s not too late to catch up!

So everyone, let’s get ready!
