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

 

Like Herrick himself, the funeral parlour is unassuming and respectful on the outside...  But past the pleasant façade it's cold, threatening and full of very dark secrets.

 

It was a tough gig for Andrew Purcell, the set designer in charge of creating the Being Human world.  However, this week we've gone behind the scenes to find out just how he turned this former car showroom in Bristol into one of the most important locations of the series.

    Thanks for posting this tour of the vampire lair. I really want to know where in Bristol it is. I think someone should start a Being Human Tours company that takes the fan(atics) round all the main sets. I remember years ago I happened to be in the area where League of Gentlemen was made, just pulling up in my car beside the iconic war memorial was such a buzz! :-)
