Luther is depicted as a man who re visits his past and has no desire to shun it which makes him the perfect cop for the horrific spectacles he has to face in the upcoming series. Luther's lack of empathy and mental strain that he willingly engages with, creates a sadistic and unpredictable character, which Idris Elba has mastered.

The creator of 'Wire', David Simon, recently assessed his time working with Elba and told the Baltimore Sun "from the very first episodes, Idris demonstrated the abilities and dynamics of being a breakout star". He also dicussed how he knew Elba was going to be successful as "the presence, the fluidity of the performance - the authority of the character. It was all there in those first lines."

What the viewers can expect to see is how the complexity of the character's battle against Luther's brutal yet intelligent process in solving the horrifically captivating crimes, and a warning for the introduction of an acquainted psychopath, Alice (Ruth Wilson).

Fans will be also thrilled Luther's dead wife Zoe (Indira Varma) will still be alive, along with double-crossing colleague Ian Reed (Steven Mackintosh)."
