Luther gets New Year’s Day transmission date

We’re all looking forward to the fifth series of Luther, and we initially thought that the four-part series would play out – or at least start – before Christmas.

Not so.

The Idris Elba behemoth gets a primetime New Year’s Day start date and then plays out every night for the rest of the week.

This fifth series will see “the moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare” as a series of killings pave the way for “devastating consequences” for those closest to Luther.

Look closer and you can see new guest stars Winmu Mosaku and Hermoine Norris, as well as a certain Ruth Wilson right at the end. Oh, and there’s a terrifying-looking new villain.

Here’s the latest trailer:
