Writer Neil Cross commented last year: “Ever since we said goodbye to John Luther on Southwark Bridge, there’s hardly been a minute when I didn’t wonder what happened next. So I decided to find out.”
He added: “We’re putting the band back together; Luther is coming back where he belongs. Back to the BBC. Back to London. And back to work.”
