First Photo: New “Luther” Mini-Series

After a very long dry spell, The BBC have finally given us a first look photo showcasing the return of Idris Elba’s DCI John Luther character to our screens later this year.

The upcoming two-part mini-series penned by creator Neil Cross has also scored an official synopsis: “Luther’s back. Pitted against his most chilling adversary yet, haunted by the ghosts of his past and hell-bent on retribution, he’s drawn into a terrifyingly complex case that pushes him closer to the edge than he’s ever been.”

Rose Leslie, Laura Haddock, Darren Boyd, John Heffernan and Patrick Malahide woo guest star in the new two-parter while Michael Smiley and Dermot Crowley return to their regular supporting roles.
