* FemmeFatale: Every good detective needs one. Luther has one in Alice Morgan, who seems a nice flirty sort. Unless she doesn't like you, or you're a threat to Luther. Then she ends up being not so nice.

A Creator/{{BBC}} crime drama starring Creator/IdrisElba, about DCI John Luther, a police officer working for London's Serious Crime Unit, who's often at odds with others because of his unstable personality and ease with going outside the law to get the job done. The show ran over three seasons from May 2010 to July 2013 and returned with a two-part special in December 2015. A four-part fifth season is set to film in early 2018. A Russian version called ''Klim'' made it to air, but a planned American version seems to have [[DevelopmentHell stalled]], with no news since March 2015 due to problems in finding a suitable actor to play as Luther.

** [[spoiler:Ian Reed]] also considers this when he risks being exposed, but decides to go for SuicidebyCop instead. [[spoiler:Luther sees through it, but Alice is more than willing to give him his wish.]]

* FalseReassurance: At the start of Season 2 Inspector Schenk becomes Luther's guvner, and insists there must be trust between them despite their past history. "No secrets, agendas, or Alice Morgan." Luther agrees. "No secrets or agendas." That same episode he visits Alice in the asylum and exchanges secret messages with her [[ForbiddenFruit via an apple]]. (He ends up breaking the other two as well).

* {{Badass}}: Luther, Ripley, Alice Morgan, and Schenk are all badass in their own ways. Ripley has perhaps his most notable moment of badassness in the second episode of series 2, when [[spoiler: after being tortured for days by Cameron Pell he immediately jumps back into the investigation as soon as he frees himself, and he and Luther are able to stop and arrest Pell without further violence. Also badass on Luther's part that he was able to stop any police from communicating with Pell, realizing that doing so would make Ripley expendable.]]
