Whilst eagerly awaiting the third series of my beloved Detective Cumberbatch, I thought I’d look into BBC’s other excellent-and-similar-sounding crime drama, LUTHER. And good lordy, was I in for a proper treat.
Idris Elba, Ruth Wilson, and PAUL McGANN?! Who comes up with these things!
(Also, I’ll say here and now and right away, I wholeheartedly concur with anyone saying Idris Elba ought to be the next James Bond; he would be absolutely perfect. Such a classy, great-looking, superbly talented and brilliantly charismatic actor indeed.)
(And moreover, having Jane Eyre play a red-haired, überevil psychopath, and making Paul McGann a suspect-looking lothario with a beard, is probably the most ingeniously entertaining thing the BBC has ever come up with. THEY ARE GLORIOUS.)
