So besides Idris Elba’s, Luther, my favorite character is Alice on the BBC miniseries, Luther. If they did an Alice spin-off, I would be ALL OVER THAT.

There’s a school of thought that says crazy-quirky supporting characters aren’t as appealing when they’re thrust into the center of the action, but I’m willing to bet against conventional wisdom if BBC America greenlights a Luther spin-off centered around brilliant sociopath Alice Morgan (played to delectable perfection by Ruth Wilson).
“The BBC is very interested in the project,” Luther creator and exec producer Neil Cross told Variety. “The only real question would be how many and how often we would do it — whether it would be a one-off miniseries or a returning miniseries, a co-production or not.”
“Even if I didn’t sell this thing, I would still end up writing the miniseries,” Cross went on to say. “It’s something peculiar, but she’s far more clever than me, far more witty than me, far more everything than me.”
