image for Documentary 'Luthor' to be used for Police Training
An old Television, somewhere.

Metropolitan Police are now using popular BBC documentary 'Luther' as a training video.

In it, maverick (is there any other type?) detective John Luther, played by that bloke from The Wire is seen to solve any numbers of crimes and deaths, whilst never breaking a sweat, and healing incredibly quickly when thugs put a nail through his hand.

Mr Smith, a Spokesman at the BBC told us: 'Yes, I believe it to be true. We all know that Luthor is strongly based in real life, so many of Luther's actions and trade mark moves are being incorporated into Police training. It stands to reason that if we can entertain a few people on a Tuesday night, as well as offering tips to our underpaid and over worked Police force it is a very strong return on our investment'.

We heard this on the same day that the BBC has announced that it is in talks to turn Katie 'Jordan' Price's ghost written work into award winning, sensitive and ground breaking films to build a bridge between all current and future generations.

Make Ben Macnair's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
