Adam has posted a voicemail from Christa.

It pains me to say it but... She's right. We'd better talk to him.

    ah im first lol

  • Comment number 2.

    christa what helping for the good of others ??

  • Comment number 3.

    Question: If vamps can't be caught on camera, can they be heard over the phone?

  • Comment number 4.

    yes why not

  • Comment number 5.

    yes in being human type 4 mitchell was on the phone giving the address to find sasha

  • Comment number 6.

    What makes her think the killer is going to strike again? Is it the coming full moon?

  • Comment number 7.

    she did not kill him how many times no werewolf killed matt nothing supernatural killed him well anyway i think i was steve

  • Comment number 8.

    "Hi Adam it's me Christa, listen I've been thinking we should meet up with Matt, er. There's a lot he's not telling us so and something just struck me if we leave it to long the killer might strike again so call me."

    Right analysis of that.

    There is more hesitation in this than we're used to with Christa is this due to worry or just hating to have to call Adam?

    So Christa has a theory a rather sound one if there is a killer whose to say their not serial? After all the school waiting for a kid alone that could denote stalking. The choice of Matt could be less personal and more opportunistic. Thoughts to think about.

    One thing if this is a serial killer will there be more bodies before they're caught?

  • Comment number 9.

    Questions about the voice on the phone this is surprisingly easy to explain.

    Season 1 episode 4 to Fleur Mitchell says
    "Our image can't be captured" Nothing about voices. The dead can be heard after all Annie and the answering Machine. Kind of the opposite of a Victorian child really.

  • Comment number 10.

    IT'S NOT REAL...... IT'S A TELLY PROGRAM,THEY ARE ACTORS....

  • Comment number 11.

    Perhaps, not only is Matt keeping information from the other two, but Christa as well? Maybe she thinks that she - as a werewolf - killed Matt? It could tie in with the transformation shown in the trailer.

    What if Christa hasn't been shown the ways of a werewolf yet (aka chicken on a string) and hasn't found a fully safe place to transform? Maaaybe, Matt happened to be in the same place as her one full moon (perhaps hiding from the bullies?), saw what was happening (how he knows about Christa's scars), stayed to watch in sick fascination, was spotted by the werewolf and killed. That could also explain why he followed her around before Adam arrived?

  • Comment number 12.

    LOOK FOR THE LAST FRILLING TIME IF MATT HAD BEEN KILLED BY A WEREWOLF THERE WOULD BE BLOOD A LOT OF IT!! AND AS CHRISTA SAID WHEN THEY WENT TO THE BOYS LOO "IT HASNT BEEN CLEANED IN AGES IF EVER!"
    ADAM KNOWS SHES A WEREWOLF BECAUSE VAMPS CAN SMELL THEM, ADAM TOLD CHRISTA HE WAS A VAMP ETC
    AND CHRISTA OBVIOUSLY HASNT BEEN THROUGH A TRANSFORMATION YET OR SHE WOULD REMEMBER IT
    SO UNLESS SHE KILLED MATT WITH ONE OF HER WITHERING PUT DOWNS IT WASNT HER OK
    AND MATT WASNT AWARE THEY COULD SEE HIM AND IF YOU WERE AN INVISIBLE TEEN WITH NO FRIENDS WOULDNT YOU FOLLOW A HOT CHICK LIKE CHISTA?

  • Comment number 13.

    Sorry PM that idea has been had and lost already through many reasons

    Werewolves aren't exactly the most careful of eaters the mess would be well quite a lot.

    The time Matt was supposed to return home in relation to the time of a full moon thanks to bbciswkd in the last blog.

    Christa being surprised to find out that Matt was dead.

    As for the changing in the school in the preview on the BH blog Christa mentions Friday afternoon games could be when she changes.

    So no sorry the werewolf theory doesn't hold up much weight.

    About the following her around - I'm not to sure in her monologue in the first episode a while after his death the phrase.
    "I'm now being stalked by a bouncy castle"
    it suggests that following Christa could just which girl he was following that day.

  • Comment number 14.

    12 - More that she doesn't want to admit it. The scars are old another quote
    "It's like he knew."

    In the diary I transcribed a in update 10 she writes
    "Obviously then draining the killer of blood or ripping them to pieces"
    She has changed is my theory she knows what she is but doesn't want to admit it to anyone else.

  • Comment number 15.

    WELL 14 UNTIL WE GET VERIFICATION ON WHEN IT HAPPENED TO CHRISTA WE WONT BE SURE AS I SAID AND IM PRETTY CEERTAIN THAT IF I HAD BEEN ATTACKED BY A WOLF AND WALKED AWAY FROM IT, THAT COULD BE WHAT SHE MEANT BY "ITS LIKE HE KNEW"
    MR SWANNS COMMENTS TO CHRISTA "YOU USED TO BE ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST NOW YOURE LIKE THE REST ASBOS IN WAITING " SEEMS TO IMPLY THE CHANGE WAS RECENT
    ALSO ANYBODY ELS NOTIC E THE STRANGE LAD WHEN ADAM WALKS INTO SCHOOL IN THE FIRST EPISODE HE DOESNT TAKE HIS EYES OFF ADAM AT ALL (OK THIS COULD BE DOWN TO A BAD ACTOR LOOKING AT THE CAMERA, BUT I AINT CERTAIN)
    AND WHO DO WE KNOW THAT IF THEY KILL PEOPLE HAS A "DISPOSAL" TEAM TO GET RID OF THOSE THEYVE KILLED?
    REMEMBER WHEN MITCH KILED LAUREN HE CALLED HERRICK AND THE PATHOLOGIST AND COPPERS COVERED THE TRACKS TOO.
    I THINK GUYS ADAM MAY NOT BE THE ONLY VAMPIRE AT SCHOOL, AND ARE WE CERTAIN THAT ITS "PENCIL SHAVINGS" STEVE MACENNA CARRIES AROUND ?
    WE NEED TO MEET MASTER STEVE MACENNA!
    OK GUYS DONT FORGET NEXTEPISODDE TOMORROW NITE ON FREEVIEW 301 OR THE RED BUTTON AFTER "BEING HUMAN" OR ON HERE IF THEY CAN GET RID OF THE GREMLINS AND PLAY IT THIS TIME!!!!! YES BBC I MEAN YOU, DO IT AGAIN AND YOU BETTER HAVE SOME WOLFBANE READY ggggrrrrr

  • Comment number 16.

    15 - The change in Christa would have happened more than a month ago - really watch the 30 second preview on the BH blog. Matt knows that the scars on her wrist aren't the only ones, now that level of attack from a werewolf would take a while to heal not just a go back to school the next day. So I'm thinking at least a month to heal. look at how long George was in the hospital he was wearing a gown when he first transformed.

    Christa has effectively been mawed.

    Still we shall find out when we find out.

  • Comment number 17.

    Could be a straight line scratch from her shoulder down her arm...

  • Comment number 18.

    I TOTALLY AGREE EWAN


    BY THE WAY FOLKS 18TH FEB IS THE NIGHT OF THE NEXT FULL MOON SO BECAREFUL GUYS :)AND FUNNILY ENOUGHT THE MOON AFTER THAT SAT 19TH IS CALLED "THE WOLF MOON" SPOOKY ?

  • Comment number 19.

    I think Christa killed Matt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 20.

    19. I think it's a possibility, but the general lack of gore etc. in the toilets makes it unlikely. Unless she killed him the "normal" (aka human) way.

  • Comment number 21.

    cheers ewan (13) not many people remeber that article from the very begging I don't think.

    and c (19) are you taking the mick. here are the reasons ewan posted earlier on

  • Comment number 22.

    ewan [13] - Fair enough. I still don't think she did it, but I thought I'd throw the theory out there again in light of the new(er) info.
    I'm still sticking with my egg theory ;)

    Also, a quick question for BHProd, will there be a behind-the-scenes feature/video when Becoming Human has finished? Ta muchly :)

  • Comment number 23.

    For those that can't see preview the clip on the blog

    Enjoy the link

  • Comment number 24.

    team wolf 12. no because if she had not changed she would be like vampire haha dont be stupid but when george first met mitchell he was like this happened to me and now your telling me there are vampires yadda yadda yadda so if she has met a vampire before or she just put it aside or just accepted it as yes what ever and also her scars are healed i think she has changed

  • Comment number 25.

    @ewan (23). Thanks. (:

  • Comment number 26.

    Looking at that one clip again and again I am drawn to one conclusion.

    When Christa says 'What' there is the sense of outrage yes but also fear. I don't think she was expecting anyone else to know about her deepest secret. For her it's a truly terrifying realisation. That others know, with Adam she can pretend he's wrong and lie Matt's admission to knowing of the other scars. That she can't pretend for ever.

    Still the air will still turn a mid level (after all limitations on language) of blue will still happen.

  • Comment number 27.

    The thing everyone seems to be focussed on is that Matt was killed in the toilets...Maybe he wasn't. The last thing he (supposedly) REMEMBERS is being leant over the toilet, he doesn't (according to him) remember being killed. There may well have been an interval of time between him leaving the toilets, perhaps even the school, and being killed that he doesn't recall. The only thing we know for sure is that he didn't get home.

  • Comment number 29.

    hello, first time poster here

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet but i think the Mr Swan could be the killer, he definitely seems to hate the students and he would probably have been in the school at the time of Matt's death and also, as a teacher, he would have access to most parts off the school (perhaps a handy PE equipment cupboard in which to stash a body)

    Just a suggestion, would like to know what you think

  • Comment number 30.

    29- I don't think it's a bad theory. My one problem would be why would he choose Matt? Not exactly a trouble maker. Hardly one of the kids who talks back in class. I think the sole job of that character is to keep putting Christa and Adam in detention.

    At the moment my money is on a] Another vampire in school or b] egg poison (I'm really warming to this idea actually]

    I'd also like to know more about Steve Mckenna and Gary wassisname (the son of the councilor) I think one of those two hold the key...

  • Comment number 31.

    29. In the same way, surely the caretaker should be a suspect, They would have no trouble hiding a body.

  • Comment number 32.

    30. Your probably right but I'm still sticking by my theory, something about Mr Swan just seems very suspicious

  • Comment number 33.

    What will we see tonight in around 8 hours, We shall see becoming human and a discussion about scars and Parents - but will a new suspect enter and will we get to judge?

  • Comment number 34.

    24 KIRAWALSI WHAT ARE YOU ON ABOUT "NO BECAUSE IF SHE HADNT CHANGED SHE WOULD BE LIKE VAMPIRE HAHA DONT BE STUPID"

  • Comment number 35.

    THANKS EWAN! FOR THE PREVIEW OF TONIGHTS EP

    I DIDNT SAY SHE WENT BACK TO SCHOOL THE NEXT DAY I SAID ITS RECENT THOUGH IF ITS LIKE WHEN GEORGE CLAWED NINA SHE WAS OK HOURS AFTERWARDS.
    MATT HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN HANGING OUT IN THE GIRLS CHANGING ROOMS OR ELSE HOW WOULD HE KNOW THERE ARE MORE SCARS AND JUDGING BY CHRISTAS ANGRY LOOK THEYRE SOMEWERE PRIVATE!
    I MEAN SHE TRIED TO PASS OF THE ONE ON THE ARM AS "SELF INFLICTED" SO AS I SAID SHE IS DEFINATELY IN DENIAL!!!

    and thank you 30 GILLSFOREVER I THINK IT COULD BE A VAMP TOO

  • Comment number 36.

    35 - Thank inkblurboy I just give the link

  • Comment number 37.

    First-time poster here!

    I was just wondering why it is that vampires can recognise werewolves but werewolves can't recognise their own.

    example: In ep 1 of becoming human, adam instantly realises that Christa is a werewolf just by looking at her but in the preview for ep 4 beinghuman, nina andgeorge can't seem to tell that McNair is a werewolf and in ep 1 BH when george sees tom or whatever his name is, the only reason he thinks he is a werewolf is becaue he is carrying a chicken on a string.


    Surely you'd expect that werevolves would be able to reconise their own with their super sense of smell that we see george has in ep3 BH when he can smell Sasha quote: "even without the wolf sense of smell" i think the line is.

    So, any thoughts?

  • Comment number 38.

    Werewolves can smell each other Tully meeting George who is a good distance away at the time it's that they could try not to ignore their senses in George and Nina's case as to gain some sense of normalcy in their lives, after all how could they know that Toms in the van unless they had tracked him to that spot?

  • Comment number 39.

    thanks ewan, how do you know so much about BH, are in some way involved in the production or are just an uber fangirl/boy like me?

  • Comment number 40.

    First time poster. :)

    12 - It was at least 4 weeks since Matts death/disappearance, and depending on what day he was killed (Friday) this would have given the killer time to clean up and dispose of the body, a whole weekend if the school wasn't in use.

    27 - I agree. It took Annie a long time to actually recall all the details of how she died, especially that she was in fact murdered.

    As a ghost Matt wouldn't necessarily show signs of the trauma his body had suffered. Sasha (Type 4) showed the marks because she was still using her dead and decomposing body, once she left the body behind and was in 'ghost' form she didn't show any scars/signs.

    While Christa may be a werewolf now, that isn't to say she was at the time Matt disappeared. She could be the victim that got away. Matt could have been following her for longer, unnoticed as he would have been a bit more careful about it, and was killed when he inadvertantly got in the way. If she was running she might not have seen Matt being attacked and killed. If it did happen around the same time then Christa won't yet have transformed. Her denials may be a legitimate at the moment, from her point of view, if she hasn't transformed yet. In EP2 she said
    "Who was that, anyway? The stuff he said, it’s like he knew. But that’s impossible. Then again, the whole “what’s possible and what’s impossible” thing is under review right now. It’s a bad dream, that’s all. Any minute now, I’ll wake up and there won’t be any scars and I’ll be into boys and ponies and bullshit again. And, as if I didn’t have enough to deal with, I’m now being stalked by a bouncy castle."
    This could just be a reference to the attack on her and not a realization of what she has become?

  • Comment number 41.

    Even though George was in hospital for a while Nina wasn't in hospital at all. so if the scars are on her arm or aren't to serious she could have ran away or been scratched by someone she knows eg relative or boyfriend.
    I think she has been a werewolf for a while because of the way she talks about it, she is sort of in the state George was in in series 1

  • Comment number 42.

    I think reading all these arguments and trying to figure it out myself has given me a migraine.

  • Comment number 43.

    All this user's posts have been removed.Why?

  • Comment number 44.

    Ooh! A serial killer in a school, now that would be an interesting plot line, need more timer to tell it though.

    Perhaps Matt is a witness, to something that could potentially get him even beyond the grave?

  • Comment number 45.

    "Ooh a serial killer in a school, now that would be an interesting plotline" NO not really, all serial killers or the vast majority would have attended school as a child. Perhaps we should all remember this is another example of a fictional tale where the originators descriptions of supernatural have been distorted to suit the narrative

    She loves him.. JUST EMBRACE IT GIRL

    Yes, they would be able to be heard through the phone, the whole 'not being seen through a camera' thing, is based on the fact that they have no reflection, but telephones use vibrations, not reflections.
