Luther | Comic Relief

Idris Elba and sports stars in Luther | Comic Relief

What Is It?

I finally saw a Luther themed comedy sketch video on YouTube that was made for a good cause by the YouTube channel Comic Relief called Luther | Comic Relief:

What is it about?

Here is the description for this video:

Here’s a holiday treat – Idris Elba dons his infamous Luther coat to uncover a serious case of hilarity in an unmissable sketch originally for Sport Relief 2016.

The super sleuth is joined by Lenny Henry, Rio Ferdinand, David Haye, Denise Lewis, Cecilia Noble, Louis Smith, Ruth Wilson and Ian Wright.


Our mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.

My Thoughts

I did not know about this video until maybe last year or the year before that, when I found it by accident, and now I have finally watched it.

It was different seeing a comedy version of the television show Luther, I wish that it could have been longer and a bit more short film-like, but this was not as bad as I had expected; it could have been better though, but it was good to see Idris Elba as John Luther again, and it was good to see Ruth Wilson as Alice Morgan again.

Is it just me or did Ruth Wilson look older than usual in this video?

The end,
