On TV: The Strange Grace of BBC's Luther

On TV: The Strange Grace of BBC’s Luther

“Seems to me your conscience has killed more people than I have.”– Alice Morgan

DSU Schenk: “Miss Morgan, I must remind you that I am a police officer and you are a fugitive of justice and, just by walking in here, you have by default surrendered.”

Alice: “You are entitled to send me back. I wouldn’t take it personally, besides, I’d only escape.”

DSU Schenk: “I have no doubt.”

Alice: “Meanwhile, John will be in prison…or dead at the hands of Tom Marwood. Now, me, I’m as guilty as sin. Name it, I’ve done it, but John’s as innocent as I am culpable. So,…

-William Cowper, “God Moves In Mysterious Ways”
