What's Luther been up to?

Ed Williamson

10th June 2013

Good BBC drama being what it is, they throw you a three-episode bone every once in a while, then you have to wait flipping ages until the next lot. Luther's second season was on our screens about two years ago, and between the first and second he'd gone mental, been on hiatus from the police force and developed a worrying habit of playing Russian roulette every morning. Which leads me to wonder what he's been doing with himself for the last two years.

Kicking back on the roof, thinkin' 'bout stuff

After the EXPLOSIVE events of two years ago, in which he ... solved some crimes, didn't he? Something like that? Luther took a week's holiday to sit on the roof of his council block, thinking about stuff in a yellow cardigan. A man had a go at him for scaring his pigeons.
Macking on Beyoncé

You're best off not getting involved with rappers' wives unless you like getting pistol-whipped by twelve-strong entourages in hotel foyers, but Luther couldn't help himself after bumping into Beyoncé in the Lewisham branch of Dallas Chicken. He broke off the relationship after realising that not a single word she had ever sung made a lick of sense.

It didn't pan out: the kids in Croydon just nicked his legs while he wasn't looking.
Then giving it another try with a new model

The decision to use gold just made matters worse, if anything. This led to the resignations of most high-level decision-makers involved.
Ruing his decision not to buy a tie pin

Being a complex, brooding sort of figure, Luther has little time for sartorial accoutrements, which means he ends up looking like a mug whenever it gets windy. He's wrestled with the quandary for some months.
Not being Lenny Henry

This picture appeared in one of the Google image searches I did for Idris Elba. I'm fairly sure they're not the same person. This is an obvious racist conspiracy on Google's part. Don't think I won't get started on the corporation tax thing too. Quick, someone explain the corporation tax thing to me.
