BEING HUMAN – Series 3!

By on 8 January, 2011

 

 

BBC Three hit drama series ‘Being Human’, about supernatural friends trying to live normal lives despite their unusual afflictions, is BACK, and writer creator Toby Whithouse says “it’s our best series yet”!

 

There are a few changes viewers will notice when they see the friends back on screen. Werewolf couple George (Russell Tovey) and Nina (Sinead Keenan) and reformed vampire Mitchell (Aiden Turner) have left their shared house in Bristol and they have decided to look for a new place to rent in Barry, Wales. Friendly ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) is still stuck in purgatory and is desperately trying to escape, but all in all…not a bad start.

Whithouse says:

“A third series is a unique opportunity because it allows you to take all the best bits of series one and series two.   

“What we took from series one is the domestic element and very strong stories of the week with very strong guest characters. Series two had much more of an epic sweep and a breadth of ambition. Series three has allowed us to combine all those things.”
 


It was a difficult decision for writers to leave Bristol behind, but fans should be assured the new location will give the show an extra freshness that will help in the story-telling.

Whithouse adds:

“Our concern was that moving from Bristol and losing the iconic pink house would be detrimental to the show but, actually, we found that it really reinvigorated it.

“It allowed us to kick off the series with a fresh start and with a renewed energy and provided us with heaps more material than we imagined.”
 


This third series boasts a vast array of familiar faces, including:
 

  • Lacey Turner in her first role after ‘EastEnders‘ as Lia, who Mitchell meets in purgatory;

 

  • Robson Green (‘Wire In The Blood‘) plays a primitive werewolf McNair;

 

  • Michael Socha (‘This Is England ’86‘) as McNair‘s son Tom;

 

  • Paul Kaye (‘It’s All Gone Pete Tong‘) as twisted vampire Vincent;

 

  • Craig Roberts (‘Young Dracula‘) as teenage vampire Adam;

 

  • Nicola Walker (‘Spooks‘) as social worker Wendy;

 

  • and James Fleet (‘Vicar Of Dibley‘) as George‘s dad George Snr.

 

There will also be an online extension to ‘Being Human‘, which will launch mid-way through the new series. Created by Toby Whithouse, and written by Brian Dooley, Jamie Mathieson and John Jackson, ‘Becoming Human‘ will be set in a fictional college and will follow a new group of characters over nine episodes.

Throughout filming and transmission the ‘Being Humanblog offers fans a regularly updated behind-the-scenes glimpse into the show, with videos, blog posts and news updates from the cast and crew of the show.
 

The first episode of the brand new series is set to air on 23rd January 2011 on BBC Three, and here’s the trailer (in case you missed it):

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    I entered a very specific response to this post but for some reason the software ate the whole thing. You might want to think about a new provider that is more accountable.

      Sorry to hear about that. Do you have the highlights or basic points that you wanted to mention? Also, any suggestions for a new provider?

    I’m not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

      Should be working fine. How long is it taking for the page to load up at your end?

      Absolutely. Any particular details you want to know more about? I’m a huge TV and BEING HUMAN fan, so I could write pages and pages of info, but some might get bored by it 😉

    My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome website!
