Luther returns at 9pm on Tuesday 15 December on BBC One. To whet your appetite, here are ten teasing lines of dialogue from the first episode…


 ‘There are some things you might have heard about me that could quite possibly be true.’

 ‘That dream when you’re falling … do you ever wake up in it?’

 ‘The medic says he ate the tongue. Boss, what do we do with something like this?’

 ‘You rang, my lord?’

 ‘Are you really a copper?’

 ‘Mate, until today, I had no idea you existed.’

 ‘I just want to say … Whatever it takes, you know?’

 ‘We do this the right way. Straight down the line. Or I get you kicked off for being unfit for duty.’

 ‘I was with him when he died. He was asking for you at the end.’

 ‘I have a message for you … from Alice Morgan.’
