Nov. 9 (UPI) — The BBC has released a preview of the upcoming season of Luther, starring Idris Elba as the titular police detective.
The 2-minute clip shows Elba’s John Luther tied to a restaurant chair as gangsters hit him in the face, point guns at him and zap him with a taser, while demanding to know where the leader’s son is.
Luther manages to break the chair, escape his bindings, grab a gun and confront the boss, insisting he doesn’t know anything about the younger man’s disappearance.
Here's an early Christmas present from us to you. 😉

People magazine named Elba Sexiest Man Alive for 2018 this week.
