Really enjoyed the series. I think the thing with the rules is that they're quite fluid. Its seems like it could be a mix of traditions and physical rules.

I'm looking forward to the next series :D x

Hmmm, pretty good last episode, it was probably due to budget reasons but I would have like to have seen Herrick go out with a bang, maybe put up more of a fight. And was or was it me or was it totally unnecessary when they threw in that Johnny Cash song? I did like that George is now accepting his Werewolfness, and I'll be curious to see what happens to Nina in Series 2, I really like her character. The ending was really good though, I wanna know who it is that is looking for them, I always like when they leave you wanting more.

Yeah, the psychiatrist's line, "we've found them" was intriguing. Found them, so the three of them must be wanted by some shadowy group.


I was wondering about that myself, but think it may just be a reference to the nest of vampires rather than our 3 protagonists.  When the call started with "Professor...", I was expecting the next 2 words to be "van Helsing"!

All in all it was a great end to the show - roll on Season 2!

I assumed the "them" referred to the vampires too. Interesting thought that it may be the vamp/wolf/ghost triptych, but I doubt it.

I saw the original pilot yesterday. Quite interesting as it gives a bit more background to the characters. But I am so glad they changed Mitchell and Annie. The originals just got on my nerves.

That's what I figured!
 
Loved the last episode - nice to see George beginning to accept ALL of himself, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where they go with Nina - George was only halfway through his transformation, after all, so theoretically they could have her not become a werewolf...Although Wolf-George recognising her is a bit of a hint...
 
Good to see Annie grow a pair and stand up to the vamps like she did - and anyone else get the sexual tension between her & Mitchell in the kitchen..?! I loved Mitchell's speech then: "It's not like I was drunk and there are whole periods I can't remember" - fanatstic, really dark and moving at the same time.
 
Also, I mentioned this in passing to friends and no one but me seems to have noticed this, maybe you guys have:- The sound effects. Most people've noticed the crows in the background for the vampires; some got all the wolf howls that are in the background when George is on screen (one fave, the wolf's howl becomes the creak of a hospital door as George walks through it); and in the last episode when the psychiatrist/Shady Man v.2 leaves the secure unit where Owen is, you can hear the sound of hunting horns in the background - as in fox hunting. I thought it was a marvellous auditory hint about what's to come for the second series..!
 
Already keen for the new series to start

Shaunette I am once again in awe of you.  I've got the final episode of Being Human on my I-player I've been saving it, I think I'll watch it tonight and see if I can hear them.

Great show but I think if the budget had allowed it would have been better having more scary vampire werewolf action as when it did happen it was really cool. Maybe some more ghosts need to be in the show and bad ones as the main one isn`t scary. I`m not surprised BBC America are going to show it as it has been made by them and I`m sure in time the USA will do a remake set in some small town. You`d think if a vampire revolution was on the cards the action would centre in London but never mind. I think they should cover why these vampires can go out during the day too. Cult classic tv in the making though.

Bristol is where the first Vampire in Britain lived.  I think thats right, I know there is significance to Bristol being where they are based.

I'm really pissed off I went to watch the last Episode on the i-player last night, couldn't find it on there.

It's made by BBC Wales, actually. As it was BBC Wales they had restrictions on where the show could be based, which is part of the reason they chose Bristol.

According to the show's mythology (Mitchell tells Seth in episode five - Seth asks why they're not in London or "Madchester") the first vampire to lead a double-life was in Bristol, during the 1600s. Upstanding member of the slave-trade by day, on the council and everything, killed over a thousand people as a vampire by night.
 
Toby Whithouse said in an interview that they liked the idea of the vampires being based in Bristol because of the salve trade - big transient community, lot of money to be made while at the same time offering a tasty menu of people who won't be missed.
 
As for going out during the day - Dracula could go out during the day, he was just weaker in sunlight. I liked the way there wasn't too much exposition; it's very Whedon, just "here's our world, here're our characters" without getting bogged down with too many "Well, here's why Mitchell doesn't catch fire in direct sunlight" moments.

They've not given out the release date for the second series yet! Toby Whithouse is writing it now, I'm pretty sure filming hasn't started. The Being Human blog is still running, so expect updates from there.
Or from me on here, citing there..
 
...And I won't lie to you, my new aim in life is to get in BH as an extra, and/or stalk Aidan Turner.  My friends and I live in the Bristol area, I feel this is an achievable aim!

I recorded the first episode of the second series earlier, but I've seen nothing of the first series. Should I try and watch the first year beforehand?
