Who knew that damning the sinners of forgotten times in the fires of Hell could lose its appeal after a while? Well, indeed, that seems to be what's happened to the Devil himself, who's decided to retire to Los Angeles in favour of working for the police in this new detective series 'Lucifer'.

It might sound like an unusual place to want to spend your life; the City of Angels, while you are in fact the original fallen angel; but for Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), it's a refreshing change from his title as the Lord of Hell.

Oh, he also has his own nightclub called Lux.
