Luther Series 5: Idris & Volvo

Idris Elba will return to his iconic role as DCI John Luther when the fifth series by Emmy-nominated writer Neil Cross premieres on New Year’s Day on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The four-part series will broadcast over consecutive nights from January 1 – 4, 2019 at 9pm. 

When the moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare, DCI John Luther played by Idris Elba is once more called to immerse himself in the deepest depths of human depravity.

While the monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become ever more audacious and public, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday played by Wunmi Mosaku are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption. But even as the case brings him closer than ever to the true face of evil, a reluctant Luther is forced to confront the unburied demons of his own recent past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect and who to sacrifice.

Whatever his next move, it will have devastating consequences for those around him - and change John Luther forever.
