DCI John Luther
DCI John Luther is a brash, gifted detective prone to destructive impulses. For John, his profession is far more than a job -- it's a calling. Divorced from his wife Zoe, he still can't let go of hope of getting back together, putting Zoe on edge with his dogged pursuit to rebuild their relationship. Can he ever overcome his personal demons?
Labeled a genius at an early age, Alice Morgan graduated with a PhD in astrophysics by the age of 18. A fierce, volatile force who is both a nemesis and ally of John Luther, Alice wants to find what makes John tick, to discover his strengths and -- more valuable -- his weaknesses. Will her quest ultimately help John, or destroy them both?
Zoe is trying to move on from her tumultuous marriage with John, finding a kindred -- and especially, stable -- spirit in her lover, Mark. Zoe continues to admire John's dedication to his work, but sadly knows it always threatens to consume him whole. Will Zoe find peace in her life after John?
As Zoe's lover, Mark is treading into hostile waters with her ex-husband, John. Calm and collected, Mark is who Zoe needs in her life right now, but can he protect their privacy and security from John's impulsive intrusions into their lives?
DCU Rose Teller
Anyone who has the unenviable task of being John Luther's boss is going to have their hands full. A skilled manager of operations for the police force, Rose advocated for John's return from leave, because she knows that his unorthadox approach to crime solving -- while a liability -- is worth the risk. Will she come to regret her decision to bring John back?
DS Justin Ripley
As partner to John Luther, DS Ripley may be the closest colleague to the department's most brilliant detective. He has a high respect for Luther's devotion to the job, but he isn't always so convinced by his questionable work methods. Can Justin continue to trust the integrity of John Luther's investigations?
