New to BH? Watch out, this post contains spoilers from series one...

 

 

Ok, as far as stunts go, this one was a biggie...  Two people both hit by the same speeding car.  To make it even more complicated, one of those people is a child who's going to get hit head-on.  Oh, and one more thing... it'll be hard enough for the collision to be fatal.

 

As you can see, it's not your average stunt.  To find out how it was done, we've gone behind the scenes to reveal all.  You might even recognise a few familiar faces from the last stunt we looked at...

    Ok so its not actually Herrick or Seth driving the car but this doesnt mean that it couldnt really be them does it? After all there would have to be someone special driving the car - someone who knew what they were doing and wouldnt end up killing the stunt men (by the way when the stunt bernie hit the car...oh my good god howd he get up from that?!)

    I may be wasting too much time on this theory do you think? If Im wrong someone please tell me now otherwise itll be a bit of an anti-climax when i find out it was actually Bob from number 3 lol

    God video though as always...I hope all of these will make it to the DVD :-D pleeeeeeease

    I just want to say those stunt people deserve some serious respect, anyone who is willing to stand in front of and get hit by a car that must seriously take some guts.
    Thanks to the BH team for that insight.

    That is by far my favourite Behind The Scenes look that you've given us. Thank you for posting it! I love that the crowd reaction used for the show was actually the real one, that's brilliant.
