'Luther: Outlaw': EW Review

EW: At its core, the Idris Elba-starring BBC series Luther is a police procedural. John Luther (Idris Elba) is a detective who takes his cases seriously, lives on the edge of ethics, and often finds his professional life butting into his private world, but the same could be said of any number of TV cops, particularly Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit or Michael Chiklis’ Vic Mackey from The Shield. But unlike a lot of other television anti-heroes, John Luther seems to relish in the idea of living outside the law, and the first three seasons of Luther found him following that idea into psychological places that were remarkably dark. Add in some intriguing villains and you get one of the better crime dramas of the past few years.

The story is too old to be commented.
