Alice Morgan is the first antagonist of the BBC psychological crime drama series Luther.
Alice Morgan is a beautiful, highly intelligent psychopath brought in by John Luther after the double murder of her parents (and the family dog), although it quickly became clear that she was the one who killed them. Unfortunately, Luther was forced to release her due to lack of evidence. Later on, however, she becomes Luther's unusual ally and confidante.
She was portrayed by Ruth Wilson.
In Luther, Morgan is profiled by Luther as a "malignant narcissist" who is treated as a mental illness, combined with narcissistic personality disorder. She displays some traits of anti-social personality disorder leading to grandiose behavior, sadism and rationalized antisocial activities with a serious lack of empathy towards everyone around her.
Over the course of the series, Alice becomes more human, forming a strange friendship with Luther and becomes one of the few people he trusts, sometimes acting as his accomplice. Their friendship is strong, despite the fact that Alice's core belief, that nothing ultimately matters, comes into direct conflict with Luther's.
