The “Star Trek: Strategic Operations Simulator” overlay for the stock Atari 2600 joystick. I’ve never seen one since it wasn’t necessary for gameplay and half the people who played the game weren’t using stock Atari sticks.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The role of Luther wasn’t written for you. You made him your own after reading the script. Name something you drew inspiration from that might surprise us.

IDRIS ELBA: [Laughs] Columbo. Columbo was a detective that never changed his clothes and never really adhered to social graces. He wasn’t violent, but he was very sort of obtrusive when he wanted to be just to get to the truth, and wouldn’t mind putting himself in harm’s way. I just loved that character, and you’ll see me walking around with my hands in my pockets a lot — that’s just my homage to Columbo.
Idris Elba talking about how Columbo informed his portrayal of DCI John Luther. (Thanks to listener Matthew York for hepping us to this tidbit over on the Just One More Thing website)
