BBC America’s Luther – Idris Elba!

5 Dec

When talking with my Aunt Vadney who lives in London, she keeps asking if  I have been watching the BBC’s mini-series, named Luther.    My answer, usually is…. Hmmm, not yet!  

Last night I should n’t have had 2 cups of coffee so late, I couldn’t go to sleep!   So when checking last night my cable’s ON DEMAND line-ups, I’d noticed BBC America.  Luther was listed, so I began watching the 6 – part mini-series on my cable,  this was about 9 PM and here it is 7 AM in the morning and I just finished, I was also watching Law & Order UK <great too!>

Such a fantastic writer, Neil-Cross has brought his characters to life and I must say his creation of this 6 – part mini-series was so full of suspense, I was at the edge of my seat !  My pooch was wondering, why I kept jumping up and down!

Without giving away too much, Idris Elba <love him!> is the brilliant London murder detective, John Luther (DCI) solving the most unbelievable, yet believable crimes.  However, it’s not just solving mysteries, the BBC series leaves you memorized in getting to know this detective’s crazed life, sometimes leaving you to shake your head, but often sympathize with him at times!  The wonderful cast always leaves the viewer, with the question, “What do we do now?”  Superb acting!  The characters just popped off the screen.<video below>

There’s going to be a  Season 2  and I definitely can’t wait!  Now, if you want to partake in a great story-line with a lot of suspense; check it out!   You won’t be disappointed!

If you want more of the East London born actor;  Idris Elba has joined the cast of  ‘Thor’, the Marvel Studios film about the Norse God of thunder; coming in May 2011.  He plays Heimdall, the guardian of Asgard.  A very important role protecting the Rainbow Bridge, so there will be a lot of action! 

Well, thanks Aunt Vadney!  Better late, then never they say!!  Well, it’s 8:30 AM, I ‘m going to sleep!  🙂  zzzzz
