It's back! Being Human starts Sunday!

Only days to go until the Being Human crew are back to liven up our Sunday evenings!! And we're a little bit over-excited about it here at BBC Three HQ *takes deep breaths*. So while I try to calm down long enough to tell you about it, have a look at this photo...

Being Human (Paul Kayes as Vincent)

Paul Kaye as Vincent

Recognise this man? Admittedly he does look like a dodgy geezer who'd spin you rather violently on the waltzers...but it is, in fact, comedian Paul Kaye who's guest starring as Vincent.

And who's Vincent I hear you ask? Well I don't know either so we'll have to watch the first episode to find out. And there are more famous faces popping up - there's Lacey Turner from EastEnders and actor, crooner and extreme fisher Robson Green. (What do you mean you don't know who he is? Ask your mum.)

You can watch a clip of Robson Green on the Being Human blog now and there are more photos from the first episode on our Facebook page.

Talking of the Being Human blog, you should keep checking back there during the series as they'll have all the latest behind the scenes news and gossip. While you're there, make sure you check out the brand new super slick Being Human website including Annie's Broadcasts from the Other Side. Be warned they're pretty eerie.

Hardcore fans will probably already know there's an online extension of the show called Becoming Human. I was lucky enough to watch a preview this week and wow! It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!!!!! *reminds herself to breathe* It's so good - dramatic, clever and really, really funny! I'm not going to tell you too much about it yet as we've asked the Becoming Human director to give us the full lowdown here on the blog next week. It will officially launch on the Being Human website straight after episode two on Sunday 30th January. Trust me it's worth waiting for. And just because it's Friday I thought I'd let you have a little look at the new characters...

So all that's left for you to do now is sort out your Being Human viewing party for Sunday night. I've already bagsied the best seat on the sofa, stocked up on tea and biscuits and negotiated full rights of the remote control. Don't forget 9pm Sunday BBC Three - be there!

    I actually thought that was Johnny Rotten the first time I saw the picture. I am so happy that Being Human is back, i thought it was fantastic, but I am a bit concerned that it has now gone a bit mainstream with all the famous people appearing in it now... I mean Robson Green? Despite that, it is still great, and I hope the rest of the series continues to be great!

    congratulations to BBC3 on Hip Hop Honey and Nel Hedayat's intelligent insight in to a controversial issue. A good bounce back from the disasterous "Stacey whats_her_name investigates"

    Indeed the non conclusive, open ending emphasised the confusion of the morality maze that lies in our quest for freedom of expression, more of a pandora's box than revealing or expose.

    However the racist experience of the british girl in new york was startling ! A massive counter punch to the female politician who still believed the girls are empowered by exposing their bodies on camera.

    No doubt, it would be interesting to balance the picture by interviewing male dancers in videos by Madonna and Britney Spears but it may well be a moot point given half of these men are gay.
