Luther.

A British psychological crime drama television series that centres on DCI John Luther (Idris Elba ), a ‘highly talented’ detective working in London to solve a series of high-profile murders. Created by Neil Cross. With Idris Elba, Dermot Crowley, Michael Smiley, Warren Brown.

This first premiered on the BBC in 2010. Brilliant, but terrifying and addictive. All episodes watched, which means I can finally sleep at night without quadruple checking the doors are locked and that there is nobody under the bed!

Ghosts. BBC1 and BBC I-Player.

Just finished watching the first two series of this and looking forward to the third series starting this Monday 10th August.

Button House is a crumbling English country mansion home to a gang of restless ghosts. Each ghost is from a different century and a product of their time, all squabbling with other for eternity over everyday trivial matters. In the meantime the young couple who have inherited this crumbling pile, struggle to turn the house into a moneymaking venture as well as a home.

Very modern English. Endearing, funny and well worth a watch.
