Finished the last episode of season 3 of Luther. If you don't know Luther stars Idris Elba who plays a DCI with the genius on par with Sherlock and an unstoppable sense of justice. But that same sense of justice seems to get the ones he holds most deer into dire situations.
I always wondered about Luther and Alice's random journeys off screen. Though the tone of the show is very serious many of the characters are played to the extreme (like many serial killers are I'm sure) much like a batman villain would be, which I think lends itself to an animated show.
