AROOOO!! Exciting news today... there will be new special effects in series two, as well as modifications to the existing ones to make them uglier, scarier and more realistic.

Not only that, but these modifications are being made as we speak. And to prove it, we caught up with special effects supremo Rob Meyer who let us take a peek inside the workshop where all the monster magic happens.

Having been on set for a few days now, we here at BH Blog Towers think there's something you should know... A bored Russell Tovey is a dangerous Russell Tovey.

Seriously, once the man gets an idea into his head he just can't let go of it, and this week his latest obsession is Being Human action figures. He's chatting to anyone and everyone about trying to get himself a mini-George and co for his mantelpiece, and he wanted a word with you guys, the online fans, about the his idea.

Naturally, I said you lot were ultra-creative and would have some great suggestions, so come on blog fans, show Russell what you're made of and tell him your best action figure ideas!

He's waiting to hear your thoughts...

Lights... camera... WEREWOLF!

Yes, it's the first few days of filming and the gang are back in Totterdown, Bristol, shooting top secret scenes for the new series. We caught up with Aidan and Russell at the end of the day to see how it felt to be back in the neighbourhood.

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

 

 

It's a pretty bold move writing out your lead villain (and his main henchman) at the end of your first series.  So, with a Herrick-sized hole looming over the mid-series period, producers Matt and Rob give us the low down on how it will affect the second series.

Buffalo... elephants... humpback whales...

Yes, all the best things in life migrate and Being Human is no exception, as this Thursday the show comes to BBC One at 10:35pm.

A new airing for Being Human means new fans on the blog, so if you're a regular visitor play nicely and try not to give away any spoilers in your comments on series one articles. In return, we'll get a whole new raft of BH fans to play with. Huzzah!

However, if you're new to the show you might want to take a leaf out of Mitchell's book and sink your teeth into a few features, such as the interview with BH Creator Toby Whithouse, a peek behind the scenes of the Costume & Make-Up Departments or see Russell, Aidan and Lenora as they discuss their characters George, Mitchell and Annie.

Oh, and don't forget the three exciting prequels that give you an insight into our trio's very dark pasts...

As the series progresses we'll highlight all the top spoiler-free features in our new Series One box on the right-hand side of the homepage, so you'll have everything at your fingertips to max out your Being Human experience. Hold on tight... it's gonna be a fun ride!

Gearing up to shoot a new series is a mammoth job.  With a tight time schedule, an even tighter budget, and hundreds of cast, crew and tea ladies to organise, you'd surely have to be a bit bonkers to put yourself in charge.

 

However, it turns out you can actually be reasonably sane, as we discovered when we met up with Being Human Producer Matt Bouch and Executive Producer Rob Pursey, to find out how they're making BH2 come to life.

That's right, your eyes are not deceiving you.

 

This is the Being Human trio back in the same room once again, reading through the first three episodes of series two and gearing up for production to start on Monday.

 

The trio along with creator Toby Whithouse, director Colin Teague, and the top secret new cast members met up at a hotel in Bristol to go through the action of the first few episodes.  And we can exclusively reveal that they are corkers, featuring death, blackmail, secret love trysts and Being Human's legendary dark sense of humour.

 

I can't say much more just yet, but we will be on set from Monday to capture all the action as it happens.  We'll cover every element of the filming process and bring you exclusive insights from the cast, crew, special effects team and even the tea lady.  (Ok, now I'm exaggerating - I can't guarantee the tea lady.)   But I can guarantee you're going to love it!
