TV and Film are intrinsically linked, Idris Elba who plays John Luther is currently in Pacific Rim, whilst Ruth Wilson is starring in Gore Verbinski’s latest swashbuckling adventure, The Lone Ranger.
Luther, the gripping, terrifying and sensational BBC Drama which ended on the 23rd July, saw Luther waving goodbye to Mary and walking off arm in arm with psychopath Alice Morgan.
So, this is perhaps TV’s most unlikely couple to ever surface, both flawed and both with a tendency to step outside of the law, the question for the Writers and Producers of the show, is where does it go from here? There have been talks of an Alice Morgan spin off, a Luther movie or a new series.
But, in many ways, is their relationship best left at the bridge? With the characters left in an uncertain future, Alice, as we all know is a murderer, a psychopath, but, her character has changed and softened as the series has progressed as has Luther himself.
Often with TV programmes, things aren’t often left for the viewers to create there own story.
As one of TV’s most controversial, yet oddly compatible couple, it appears that writer Neil Cross has opened a Pandora’s Box, let’s hope they do the show justice.
