Idris Elba is fantastic as the title character in Luther, a homicide detective. Ruth Wilson (who many people know from The Affair) is wickedly brilliant! Luther is a well-written show with great pace and sublime actors. This maybe one of the best of the BBC shows hitting our shores.

I can’t get enough of the anthology show Black Mirror. To me, it is like The Twilight Zone with a focus on technology. Great stories that are shocking, frightening, as well as thought-provoking. Worthy of binge-watching!
- Black Mirror (England), 2011, Channel 4
