Last week Luther creator Neil Cross has promised Idris Elba will be returning to the role amid rumours of a standalone film before the sixth series.

Idris, 48, has won a legion of fans as the no-nonsense detective on the BBC show, which last aired in January 2019.

As well as a potential sixth series, a standalone Luther film has been doing the rounds on the rumour mill for a while, and when asked about it, Neil said: "Ask Idris!"

He added: "We are – I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, which is an answer in of itself! Words are my job and I’ve lost them all.

"We wanna make more Luther. We’re gonna make more Luther. The how and the why, that’s all to come, but we’re gonna make more Luther.”
