Season 5 of Luther will start on New Year's Day

Luther is back!

Thinking about making a New Year's resolution? Maybe you plan on reading more books or doing more exercise; how about watching more brilliant TV?

Well, the BBC have just helped you with one of those resolutions as they've just confirmed that DCI John Looooooofa (Luther) will be returning on New Year's Day at 9pm on BBC One.

Having seen the most recent trailer, fans are eagerly-anticipating the return of a certain character as after being teased and tortured by her over the years, it appears that everyone's favourite killer is back.

Oh yes, Alice Morgan lives.

With regards to the plot, here's the official synopsis: "The moonless shadows of London give birth to a new nightmare. DCI John Luther must once again confront the depths of human depravity. As a series of monstrous killings becomes ever more audacious, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an unspeakable horror.

"But even as the case brings him closer than ever to the nature of true evil, a reluctant Luther must also face the ghosts of his own past. Striding back into the line of fire, he must choose who to protect… and who to sacrifice. Whatever his next move, it will have devastating consequences for those around him - and will change John Luther forever."

Bring it on!
