John Luther is a Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) working for the Serious Crime Unit in series one, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in series two and three. A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes dangerous in the violence of his fixations. However, Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals.
David Dawson appears as Toby Kent in episodes 2, 3 and 4
Still plagued by the death of his ex-wife, Luther returns to work to face a surreal case of a masked murderer determined to enter into folklore. As the body count rises, Luther must use all his skills to stop the killer, at the same time trying to rescue an old acquaintance’s daughter from the dangerous world of prostitution.
Toby Kent (David Dawson) is an upper-class dandy and a psychopath. Eton-educated, skittish, nervy, cruel and terrifying, he should be in an institution rather than working for Baba. Toby delights in the violence of his work, especially the bullying of all of Baba’s victims, including Luther.
