This is honestly my favourite ever summation of Luther. We might have to get some T-shirts printed.

Speaking of good ACTORS...

Idris Elba, who plays the central character, was also a dominant factor in the excellent US series, The Wire. Watching him -- more to the point, hearing him -- in Luther made me wonder yet again at the linguistic versatility of so many British actors, a quality quite rare in Americans.

A triumph, in my view (as good as Alice/Ruth).

He was in "The Wire?" No way. Lennie James has an amazing American accent, as well. Big Finish should get more actors like them when they have "American" characters... (We won't talk about "Minuet in Hell.")

I mean, I"ve seen the Wire. Didn't realize he was in it. (I do now, though.)

Perhaps worth mentioning that Dominic West, who played the lead, is also a Brit. His accent, like Elba's, was not merely American. It was Baltimore American.
