David Knight - 23rd May 2011

Caswell Coggins has been missing from music videos for a while to concentrate on documentary work, and things like this - the new trailer for the forthcoming second season of BBC cop show Luther, starring Idris Elba.

Idris as Luther un-destroys his office, and returns to a state of relative serenity, all to the strains of the great Nina Simone singing Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood (so its actually quite like a video really...). Sixty seconds that intrigues you that maybe this show could be worthy of one of the stars of The Wire.
