In years to come, we will remember 2013 as the year everything changed. Danny Dyer is now in Eastenders, and across the land all else has ceased to matter. But look upon the works of this medium, now so wholly transformed, and you will see more than this. And you might think it handy that some berk put it all in a list and bid you read it.
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.
This might be why he's been away for a while. That and the fact that he goes crackers at the end of every series and needs some time to get his head together.

). What's this? The Emmy nominations, you say? Piece of piss.
Ooooh, Luther's back. And this time, he's mad
. Actually, he's not that mad. I'd been led to believe he would be by that trailer where he smashes up the office backwards. Right, I'm calling Points of View. Is that still on?
