Idris Elba begins filming on Luther Special



In what is likely to be his last UK small screen outing as the troubled detective Idris Elba has just begun filming on Luther for the BBC.

With a script from serie creator Neil Cross and direction from Sam Miller (who has been working on this years scariest show Fortitude) it promises to be John Luther’s most chilling case yet. The special also stars Rose Leslie, Laura Haddock, Patrick Malahide, John Heffernan and Darren Boyd with Dermot Crowley and Michael Smiley also returning to their regular roles of Martin Schenk and Benny Silver.

Executive producer Elizabeth Kilgarriff had this to say: “It’s very exciting to have Idris Elba back as DCI John Luther and to be in East London shooting the show’s fourth installment. Neil Cross has pulled out all the stops to make this the biggest, scariest story yet and it’s a privilege to welcome such a glittering array of acting talent to our already stellar cast.”
