Luther is a deeply thrilling crime drama, crackling with energy, distinctive characters and snappy, clever dialogue. On a moral crusade, too often with only his convictions for company, John Luther is a deeply troubled man, a philosophical cop possessed by the insoluble problem of evil and justice in a Godless world. Confronting depravity in its many terrible forms, over a succession of psychological duels between hunter and hunted, perpetrator and prey, Luther reveals his capacity for violence as well as kindness; his sudden vulnerability and dizzying, visionary mind; why his wife left him for another man, and why his colleagues are frequently left open-mouthed in awe. As the stakes get ever higher and more personal, Luther's lonely path pulls him towards the very edge of temptation. Will the relentless pursuit of light tip him into the ultimate darkness?

Marcella is a new multi-stranded crime drama from internationally renowned screenwriter and novelist Hans Rosenfeldt (The Bridge). Set in contemporary London and starring Anna Friel, Marcella centers on the psychological struggles of a Metropolitan police officer at a crisis point in her personal life, driven by rejection and intuition. Co-created with Nicola Larder (The Tunnel), the series is Rosenfeldt's first drama created for an English speaking audience. Following his global success with The Bridge, Marcella captures Rosenfeldt's genius in creating truly compelling female characters. Returning to the Met's Murder Squad after a 12-year career break, Marcella is a detective in her late 30's who gave up her fast-tracked role to marry and devote her life to starting a family. With the abrupt end of her marriage to the love of her life and isolated from her daughter at boarding school, Marcella returns to work--her sense of self shattered. She is immediately assigned to one of her old cases that she first worked on in 2003. A spate of recent killings has occurred, all carrying the same hallmarks as those unsolved murders committed over a decade ago. Has the killer re-appeared or is this a copycat murderer? How will Marcella cope with returning to duty when her own temperament is so fragile and vulnerable? Will throwing herself into her work provide the answers she's seeking or lead her dangerously into territory she must avoid at all costs? Told in Rosenfeldt's unflinchingly clear Nordic style, the series leads the audience through an unpredictable narrative maze full of hooks and action with suspicion falling on nearly all of the characters right up until its final moments.
