Some may prefer that Luther be romanced by Alice (played wonderfully by actress Ruth Wilson) - those who've grown to love Alice and her deliciously maniacal ways, almost as Idris' Moriarity, we could say; alas, it won't be that kind of likely dysfunctional relationship.

Luther Shoot 3

Some may prefer that Luther be romanced by Alice (played wonderfully by actress Ruth Wilson) - those who've grown to love Alice and her deliciously maniacal ways, almost as Idris' Moriarity, we could say; alas, it won't be that kind of likely dysfunctional relationship.

Instead, Luther (Idris Elba) will be take by a character played by Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) in the hit series upcoming third season/series, which, as we've already noted, will comprise of 4 hour-long episodes, which began shooting last week, to the excitement of many.

In season 3, Luther finds himself under a lot of pressure, as he struggles to solve two conflicting crimes, while simultaneously fending off a ruthless ex-cop who's determined to bring him down by any means necessary.

Sienna Guillory's character will be called Mary, and she's described by the BBC as... "a worker in a vintage clothing shop, who meets Luther by chance." What happens from there, we'll have to wait to find out.

Also revealed are that Warren Brown, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Dermot Crowley and Michael Smiley will return to assume the roles they each played last season.

And next seasons guest stars will include Lucian Msamati (Game Of Thrones fans will remember him as the pirate Salladhor Saan; he and Nonso Anozie were the 2 black Brits who joined the series cast last season), and Ned Dennehy (Tyrannosaur).

No date announced yet on when Luther, season 3 will debut, in the UK or the USA; but I expect it'll be sometime in 2013; and maybe even simultaneously this time - meaning, those in the USA won't have to wait months after it airs in the UK, to see it in the USA.
