At the beginning of the first episode of Luther‘s new season, Luther (Idris Elba) and his partner are standing over the body of a corpse. The dead woman is dressed in a black leather corset and miniskirt over a ripped fishnet body stocking; a mask with bright red lipstick has been placed over her face and a black wig on her head.
Luther explains that the killer must have brought the outfit with him:
“Look, it’s a very specific look. The wig. The makeup. It’s a bit of a Siouxsie and the Banshees thing going on here.”
His much younger partner asks, “The who and the what?”
“Post-punk,” Luther corrects.
