BBC America’s Bad Boys
DCI John Luther (Idris Elba, 'Luther')
A brilliant detective, DCI John Luther is the best in the police biz, but his personal life is a bust. After his wife is accidentally murdered by his best friend, all bets are off, and Luther embraces his bad side, going rogue and taking justice into his own hands.
Cal McCaffrey (John Simm, 'State of Play')
Cal McCaffrey is a well-respected journalist who's sleeping with his former best friend's wife. BAD call, Cal. Nough said.
DI Joseph Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones, 'Whitechapel')
He's got a pretty mug, but Joe Chandler isn't afraid to get ugly to catch a killer.
Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton, 'Whitechapel')
Eddie Buchan is a tour guide, so yeah, not exactly badass, but his fascination with unexplained and violent deaths suggests he loves a good horror show.
John Coniston (Steven Mackintosh, 'Inside Men')
A mild-mannered stutterer and general push-over, John might be the least likely man to get involved in the biggest crime scheme in UK history. But give John a gun, and he's a whole new guy.
Marcus Riley (Warren Brown, 'Inside Men')
Marcus Riley may look innocent, but the cheeky forklift operator with a charming smile harbors some serious resentment for his lack of luck in life. Marcus' bad boy streak starts when he schemes to get out of debt the fastest way he can - stealing cash from the counting depot where he works.
