As is someone else apparently, I don't watch it but doesn't sound like many of the original cast will be left now.

I just watched the first season of Luther and enjoyed it. Idris Elba was great but Paul McGann got a nice meaty part in the final episode which I quite liked.
The second season is even better, although shorter. It's basically two feature length episodes, each split into two. BBC have commissioned another set but I don't know when it will be appearing.
I do know that Alice isn't in it as much which saddens me. I hear she's going to be back for season 3, though. I need my psychopath crush in the show.

Hugh Bonneville - Downton Abbey
Idris Elba - Luther - WINNER!
William Hurt - Too Big To Fail
Bill Nighy - Page Eight
Dominic West - The Hour

Re: BBC Original British Drama

We'll Take Manhattan airs tonight on BBC 4.http://www.tvguide.co.uk/detail.asp?id=114411680
Drama, based on the story of David Bailey's 1962 photoshoot in Manhattan with model Jean Shrimpton. Against the wishes of his editor at British Vogue, Bailey disregards the conventions of contemporary fashion photography and sets out to create distinctive, original images. During the course of a week in New York, both he and his muse accidentally change the course of their lives, as well as the world of fashion. Drama, starring Karen Gillan, Aneurin Barnard and Helen McCrory

Re: BBC Original British Drama

BBC One have cancelled Garrow's Law.
http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2012-...w-axed-by-bbc1

Seems to me this is a continuation of the new BBC One channel controller dumping previous hits, like the new BBC Three controller is doing.

Will be interested if the writer updates holding on, I enjoyed the original.

Yep, looks like we have permanently stolen her from the Americans, which is good. We deserve her more anyway.

I loved it. A few niggles, not least the painful Wire-wannabe bits on the streets and even in some of the dialogue, but otherwise 5 hours well spent. Totally agree it had nothing on The Shadow Line but what has? I hear a second series is already confirmed too, which I think is actually needed. Wrapping up with the captions, as it was a real story, was too rushed for my liking.

Also, you really cannot go wrong with Craig Parkinson.

I started watching it last night but thanks to painkillers wasn't paying attention. They already renewed it for a second series.
