It's time now to introduce a new face from the Being Human family... it's Tom, the ultra hard-working runner!

As a runner, Tom carries out glamorous jobs including fetching stuff, carrying stuff, holding stuff and getting told off by producer Matt Bouch for not getting his (and I quote) "DAMN ESPRESSO I ASKED FOR TEN MINUTES AGO".

But worry not, despite all this Tom works with one of the biggest smiles on the production, and has kindly let the BH Blog team follow him for an entire day.

We promise we didn't just do it for the free tea and biscuits. Honest.

    Yeah....thanks team, again

    Tom, you have the best job in the world....do they pay you?, cos I would pay them...and yes your skin is still young and beautiful.

    PS How beautiful did AT look in that brown(?) tracky top

  • Comment number 2.

    Ooh, are you recruiting? Runners you understand, not vampires

  • Comment number 3.

    Oh... and Mr. Bouch, love you loads but...learn to be a little patient. Tom has other people to sort out , you know

  • Comment number 4.

    Yay sperkii...runners/vampires...no-one gets left behind

  • Comment number 5.

    Well hello Tom....

    ..absolutely not a glamorous job....having to be a runner for the cast and crew....and talk to Aidan...and run to get coffees...and stand next to Aidan....and get snacks.....and stare into Aidan's eyes.....fancy swapping your job with mine for a while?

  • Comment number 6.

    Hi folks really enjoyed that little vid....we did say a while back how hard they work (all of them) and this kind of proved it....

    VF:: Oh he'd look good in anything....nothing....partially clothed... I think we've been here quite a few times and no doubt will do again hehe

    Matt....please be a tad more easy on the guy....even Aidan said he had a tough job .... long hours, doubtless not that well paid, OK he gets to work with our boys (and girls) which compensates hugely... come to think of it, do you fancy an administrator/secretary person at all....ever?? I can but ask....oh and I'm a bit of an artist so if anyone wants lessons for any further episodes of Des Rom, you know where to come.

    Will just view it again....research purposes...

  • Comment number 7.

    ok....out now for a while but may be back a little earlier tonight.

    Noone reads posts from previous blogs once new vid up so Jooos...and any other interested ...repeating this from earlier on last blog

    Hi guys and esp to vampfan..we've been passing like ships in the night recently.

    Well..exciting news for Jooos and anyone else who can get RTEPlayer. If you've read previous posts (501) you'll know that theer's been a problem getting The Clinic ( and therefore the beautiful one in the new series) on the Player. RTE Player Team have been fantastic and emailed me yesterday to say all now sorted..and it is!
    Watched the opening episode last night and now just watched episode 2..ok..for those of you who can't see it brief rundown of Aidan in action...

    Eps 1...Aidan not in very much but he is now looking his normal self ( ie like Mitchell) instead of the v.young looking guy with shorter hair from previous series. It's clear he has a fancy for the Clinic Manager..she is a bit gorgeous and getting married soon in real life ( phew!)

    Eps 2 more interesting and lots of Aidan in. He has this story line going with his daddy...great scenes on a football field...but..best of all...Aidan swims in the sea with his da and emerges half naked wearing shorts! ( ok.bermuda shorts but he still looks grrrh!)

    Something I noticed about his body..mmm....where was I?..oh yes...he now has two tattooes..the one he always has had and we saw in BH1 when he wore his sleeveless top when retrieving DVD....and one on opposite arm now which is a more prominent tattoo ..looks a bit like a Japanese character but it's a bit hard to tell.
    And if you go back to look at the NUS vid on twitter posted by te BHTeam you can see the second tattoo a bit in there.

    Will investigate tattoes a little more when time..!

  • Comment number 8.

    Hi Brown, VF and others...

    Who were the two women getting out of the white people carrier/van at around 1min? New characters or crew do you think?

    And I, er, remember a short while ago saying that I had seen a certain person around, if you cast your minds back....and I gave a hint as to where that was....well, if their vid was made around then and it might have been, I think that you'll see they were where I said they were on this occasion because that's exactly the area I was in...and Aidan was there, wasn't he? So I think it must have been him I saw hehe

    Tom...you're skin is fine...and can you arrange for me to take your place one day so I can muscle in on Aidan?

  • Comment number 9.

    Right ...had another chance to watch the vid...(very naughty of you team to release it just when the sensible half of the family wanted to watch the 6 o clock news)

    In a previous life...when I was a person before I became a mum...I used to spend approx 4 months of every year in Durham.

    geordies are my most favourite people...but did not hear a geordie accent from Tom...please explain

  • Comment number 10.

    Brown (7) Know what you mean about a new Vid...but I did actually answer you on the previous page.....don't bother looking back, cos all I did was agree with you.

  • Comment number 11.

    VF:: Not at first, but if you listen really carefully, the odd word is mildly Geordie but not very strong...it took me a bit to work out why he never had an accent but he does have a little tiny bit of one....I'll listen to it again and try and work out when he sounds Geordie..

    Hi VF - how are you?

  • Comment number 12.

    VF:: Sounds a bit Geordie at around 1:16 when he talks about having water and tea and stuff, at 1:47 ish when he says "nice people" and around 2:16 when he says "but"....it isn't strong but it's a lovely accent...and he looks lovely....as does the vampire but doesn't he always....he'd look good in a bin liner.

  • Comment number 13.

    Hi Everyone!

    Just watched the fab new vid form BH team...you are lovely BH team...I love you!! One of the first things I noticed (after Aidan!) were the trees (As you mentioned in (6) Anglo and the other week...trees!...you were where they were, I've no doubt!)

    It's great to get an insight into how a programme is made...Tom looks a really busy guy but would still love his job if it involves tending to Aidans every need!!

    Brown: That's great news about RTE player - will try it in a bit...was really good of them to email you. Glad Aidan looks older in this new series of The Clinic as he was very young in the last series and not at all like the sexy vamp we know and love!

    Right, off to eat tea, drink wine, watch the vid againn, tweet, watch The Clinic...busy evening! I should get out more...maybe tomorrow night!

    Happy Weekend everyone :)

  • Comment number 14.

    Hi Joooos....I'm really pleased they showed where they were, I'm now sure it's where I saw the vampire...same trucks, same surroundings.. I was trying to see what Aidan was wearing under that brown top but if it was a grey t-shirt....

    I also noticed what looked like the back of the hospital or similar towards the end although there are a lot of buildings like that in certain areas of the city....good vid though, given me food for thought.

  • Comment number 15.

    anglo::: Nope...listened again...still didn't hear it...but I have just seen AT in a new bit of film...so not really thinking straight

  • Comment number 16.

    VF:: What bit of film....the vid or something else? Do tell!

    Now I've just been perusing the hallowed sonnets once more and have discovered that not only does he have a nice everything we've mentioned, his neck is lovely and long (sonnets 3 and 4)....no wonder Herrick didn't have too much difficulty getting a grip hehe

    He definitely has brown eyes.....I've checked every damned angle over the last ten minutes and they are....

    Sonnet 2 does it for me every time....even if you don't do poetry, that "remember me" bit where he lowers his brows over his eyes... absolutely heaven..

    He was wearing the red t-shirt under that black jacket...bright colours suit him especially when mixed with black.....grrrrr

  • Comment number 17.

    VF: lol....no wonder you're not thinking straight....since I started this blog I've not had a straight thought in...ohh...about four weeks.

  • Comment number 18.

    anglo::: no, sorry, the new bit of film about Tom...I know, I was rambling.

    Yep, bright colours...that's why the yellow t-shirt is my fave

  • Comment number 19.

    VF: You are allowed a ramble, a mumble and total speech loss when talking about the vampire....it is totally understandable and all his followers I'm certain have suffered from it at some point over the past few months.

    Love the yellow one too, and the red, and that white one he wore in the theatre vid yesterday....cor blimey.....now where's the bright green one....he could get away with that for sure, under that black jacket.

    Still like the idea of a calendar...various above the waist shots, dressed or no....how does that idea grab you, Vampy? Not much to ask, is it?

  • Comment number 20.

    a calendar?? the year wouldn't be long enough...Hehe.

    I was up way too early for work this am, so watched EP 4 (my fave)...I have been really wobbly all day.....wonder why?

  • Comment number 21.

    anglo::: sorry I assumed the calendar would be one pic per month...perhaps you meant one pic per day.....oh I could go with that

  • Comment number 22.

    aww hes so sweet!!!

    please tell me how to become a runner i don't care if its hard work. i can make a mean cuppa tea and coffee so if your looking I'm over here *waves like a mad women*

    glad everyone's still getting along fine and that everyone's happy cant wait for the new series

  • Comment number 23.

    VF: One pic per day would be just the thing....is that enough do you think? Wouldn't it be great if all the pics were like the ones in Hogwarts (I have a nephew who liked the books, in case you wondered exactly how old/young I am) and they all moved....oh my god we'd never sleep lol

    Ep4...was that when Annie failed to haunt Owen in the house for the first time? My faves are any with a surfeit of Aidan in them, i.e. 5 and 6 would do nicely...what is it about no. 4 you like or is it just...the vampire?

  • Comment number 24.

    Have had some wine....

    I agree a calender with s new picture everyday, but in moving Harry Potter stylee....

    Oooh, have I ever mentioned how sexy and gorgeous and lovely I think Aidan is???

  • Comment number 25.

    EP 4 is the Bernie one...there are just so many lovely shots of him and it is really all about him. Best bit as I have said just recently (although cannot remember why) is when he is mopping and Herrick comes to talk to him....it is shot really close-up .....devine.

    calendar...is one pic per hour do-able?

  • Comment number 26.

    Katy: Hi, nice to hear from you again....we're all back in Aidan-mode (when are we not?)!

    Think there might be a very long queue for the runner's job...mind you,they might need several so you can but try...you'd probably need to fight of Cieria, Brown, VF, SweetLyssa, Angifan, Joooos and I first....just thought I'd warn you hehe

    Joooos: Wotcha...oh good, another yes to the calendar....mixed colour and b&w pics I think....I've an absolute corker on my desktop which would look great in a calendar....moving would just be OMG wouldn't it....the icing on the cake...

    Do you know, I think you might have mentioned the vampire before.. remind me again...he is a bit nice...

    Honey....I'd get the rest of that wine down you first and then tell us what you really think of Aidan!

  • Comment number 27.

    Such a nice bloke! When my babies were on set couldn't do enough for us. Really does have a smile on his face all the time! Didn't ask him to change a nappy but I'm sure he would have if I'd asked!!!!xxx

  • Comment number 28.

    VF: One per hour....jeez....only if they all move...and include some of those t-shirts....and some without...but then, we wouldn't work, talk to our sig others and children, cook, clean, shop.... yep, it'd work for me.

  • Comment number 29.

    Ooops, newbie Mods are out again....they've not been too active lately....probably this vid has got them out on the prowl trying to catch Aidan-lovers (I wish I was) out...

  • Comment number 30.

    Right if we are having a moving caledar.....please can April (my birthday) be the bit just before he meets Bernie. He is wearing his yellow t-shirt and he is loping down the street ...and oooh yes that stance he has when he says "Run that by me again".....feel a faint coming on......

  • Comment number 31.

    VF: hehe....OK let's put our orders in....in January I'd like on my birthday, please, calendar-makers, the second sonnet (E2) of Des Rom...then the bit where he's writhing in the hospital bed without top on (E6)....the bit of him crawling across that tiled floor to the window in the house....the bit with him and Josie coochin up to each other on the bed....then the bit where he and Lauren are feeding off each other (the bit where he puts his trousers on) think it's in the hotel room (it's very sexy, especially that close-up shot of their faces with that fake blood, and even her eyes have the blood-lust look in them)....

    Vampy, oddly enough, I feel somethin' coming on but it ain't no faint.

  • Comment number 32.

    Jeez I am so about to get modded...

  • Comment number 33.

    anglo::: the bit where (as you put it) he is crawling across that tiled floor....why are you trying to send me right round the twist???....and back into fainting mode......

  • Comment number 34.

    Oh sorry V, I didn't realise it would have that effect on you.... it isn't as if we think he's the poodles pieces, is it, after all...

    Mind you, now you mention it, that bit does rather have an effect on me too....pure filth actually, I think I've said that before....it must be that slow, deliberate crawl across those tiles, with those beautiful but haunted eyes fixed on the window and then looking out in wonderment, revealing that little tatt on the left shoulder, biceps rippling....

    Would that be the bit you meant Vampy?

  • Comment number 35.

    anglo(34)....sorry, cant't type and wipe away the drool at he same time.....but that little scene is something to do with an unspoken intent....yeah, that's it...his intent...ooops, floors coming up to meet me again!

  • Comment number 36.

    Anglo and vampy: really am pmsl now at your comments!

    Just watched a bit of THe Clinic - but the player has now frozen so need to re-boot I think....Aidan looks GORGEOUS and very innocent too! He has a bit of stubble (which he didn't have in the last series) and he's not wearing a cardie any more...he's got a yellow hoodie on..yellow's definitely his best colour!

    Anglo (26). Will tell you what I really think of Aidan later by tweet!

  • Comment number 37.

    Right kids, that's me for tonight....eyelids crashing down...it's been fun as always...talk soon

    nighty night.

    PS Love that vampire

  • Comment number 38.

    OK Vampy, sleep tight....tiled floor...hehe

  • Comment number 39.

    Joooos: hehe.....We can't help it, girl....where the vamp is concerned, we're putty in his hands or, to paraphrase a sonnet, we are both "like a child to his touch"...and we're both romantics at heart I'd guess but that bit flies out of the window and is replaced by something .... more....animal (in a good way). lol

    Can't wait to get your tweet...how's the wine consumption, incidentally?

  • Comment number 40.

    Anglo: wine is going well. Boyfriend just been upstairs to see me asking if I really should be spending so much time on this man! - as am still watching the clinic. I said it was a very good programme with an addictive storyline...ooh, Aidan's had on a yellow (well, lemon) and grey striped jumper and then a yellow t-shirt under a shirt.

    Did we ever get to the bottom of why some people can see RTE player and others can't? Is it location? - might get modded if I tell you where I am on here (I'm near where The Beatles are from!)

  • Comment number 41.

    joooos: Ah, OK, got that....I can't get The Clinic at all, am gutted I can't see a slightly different looking but still talented Aidan but I've tried and can't get what I'm assuming is the right signal.... it's a bummer, it really is...

    Yellow and red suit him...grrr...sorry I'm off again....that look of 'intent' as VF put it...wouldn't want to be immortal but I'd risk even that for a few minutes with him lol

  • Comment number 42.

    Right folks, I have a sort of heavy weekend ahead...must get some paintings/drawings finished for an exhibition....will be popping in and out most of weekend inbetween doing other things...would love to work part-time and do the art thing but rent needs paying, food needs buying, blah blah blah....the usual stuff...

    So ta-ta for now... will catch up with everyone again tomorrow and Sunday. *hugs*

  • Comment number 43.

    Regarding being a runner.... I looked into it as I saw a backstage blog video and just so wanted to be part of that.... so looked it up... most runners start with unpaid work experience the plan being you get a list of contacts whilst on expierce and do so well at your job you either get called back or get references for a running job elsewhere... you can do running with the bbc... if you check out the careers bit...

    BTW... why does Aidan look so Damn sexy as he reaches for an apple?!

  • Comment number 44.

    Hi SweetL: Just got your post before heading bedwards (is that a word? It is now!)...fascinating about how you become a runner... are you tempted ... I sure as hell was, if I got to feed Aidan fruit and do whatever he wanted me to....perhaps that wasn't the wisest thing to say but you know what I mean hehe

    And the apple-reaching isn't the only thing he looks sexy doing... he looks sexy doing almost anything we've seen so far.. I have no doubt brown would agree with this.

  • Comment number 45.

    Yo everyone..back at a reasonable hour for a change..wondering why noone has picked up on newbie TwinA17 comment ( 27)...
    Well hello to you and your babies...lots of chatter about them on Twitter recently....do tell...were the vampires eating them ( not for real you understand)....and if not....what role were your babies playing?
    And almost as important..did you meet the beautiful one on set?

  • Comment number 46.

    Oh and Jooos....just wait till you see Aidan in episode 2 of The Clinic...pepare yourself woman..and don't have your man in the room at the same time.....enjoy!

  • Comment number 47.

    Thanks brown... didn't see (27)

    welcome... that must have been pretty exciting being on set

    Anglo... I'm not only tempted but seriously gonna try it... my youngest starts nursery this new year so gonna learn to drive next year and get my inlaws over while I (hopefully) do work experience as a runner... I think it'd be a great experience!! Something different to put on my CV certainly, pmsl

  • Comment number 48.

    What a night got locked out of the blog and had to re register don't know why. So watched episode 1,2,3, again. Just where do I see the heavenly one crawling on the floor? Can't think I've missed it.

    We need to speak more to TwinAI7 how did she get that gig? Why did I not think of doing that when mine were small?

    TwinAl7: What does he smell like, look like, feel like, (she must have felt him how could you not,) walk like, should I go on?

  • Comment number 49.

    Oh dear!!!

  • Comment number 50.

    Brown(46): Just watched episode 2. WOW! He's been working out hasn't he?...great to see him in something else. Looking forward to the next episode now. Thankyou so much for letting me know it's back and available! Do you know when he filmed that? Was it after Des Rom?

    Hi TwinAl7,sorry I didn't say hi earlier...am sure you can't tell us too much that happened on set, but must've been fab!

  • Comment number 51.

    Joooos...fairly sure it was filmed after Des Rom...and yeh...looked to me like he had been working out....wasn't he cute in the football scene and club scene with his da?....best scene of course was out of the sea........grrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    what did you make of the second tattoo on the other arm?

    Can't wait to hear from TwinA17...you could become our new best friend girl if you saw, spoke to....or...God, can't even think about it...TOUCHED..the beautiful one ( and I'm not referring to your babies here Twin..although of course I'm sure they are beautiful...)

  • Comment number 52.

    Mr P I do love you so very very much lol :-) you could not have put up a better video (for me anyway) had I asked for it...although if you thought that would put me off my dream job absolutely no way :-D and BH looks like its a lovely set to work on - even better than the ones I've been around...does Tom want an assistant for the day?? Pretty please? Go on it'd make for a cracking behind the scenes video don't you think? :-) (I have only the behind the scenes team and the BH team's best interests at heart you understand absolutely nothing to do with looking good on my CV...nothing at all :-) but I am good - I promise :-P I wouldn't be quite so persistent if I didn't think so :-))

    Oh and I know I'm not meant to be here but someone tipped me off about what this new video was about and I just had to see it so am currently running the risk of getting attacked by one of the many rather shifty passers by outside the pub lol

    P.s. Mr Bouch I could bring you a really good espresso if that would help seal the deal? :-D Tom I'll bring you one too if you want :-) swap it for some career advice? :-D might even be some biscuits in it? or cake? :-)

    SweetL - didnt realise you were trying to get into this side of things too :-) good stuff I'm kind of still trying to save enough money so I can afford to work free for a bit - get some more experience but hey if someone offered me a paid job I'd be there tomorrow lol all about patience though - I didn't go to uni and do it "properly" so I kinda have a bit more to prove but happy to do it :-D and with a smile as big as Tom's :-D see lol

  • Comment number 53.

    Ok just read all the posts and realised that practically every other person put in a bid for a job as a runner...and I was thinking I might actually be in with a chance this time lol maybe not then :-P oh well I'm nothing if not hopeful :-D :-D :-D ahh theres more of those big smiles...still think you can never have too many on set :-D

  • Comment number 54.

    Might just add though I'd still be offering my services if the set was full of only ugly people...just so you know :-)

  • Comment number 55.

    Early start today...

    Eagle:: Good to see you eagle, wasn't expecting to see you around for a while...nice to have you back tho and glad you enjoyed the vid....looks like you and SweetL are in competition for the runner's job...Tom had better watch his back hehe

    Twin A17: Nice to meet you....they almost Modded you at first so I didn't notice they'd allowed your remark in the end, so busy were we talking last night.

    You were actually on set and those were your babies they were talking about??? Tell me....I'm sure you've been asked before....I always thought Aidan was more than just a pretty face but what is he really like...wasn't sure who you were talking about in your post (27) as I thought it might have been Tom the Runner or Aidan but thought I'd better check!

    Angifan: With the number of die-hard Aidan supporters on here, you'd think we'd get bored talking about the vampire but we never do, do we?....Why is that I wonder?...

    I think the crawling across the tiled floor in the house bit was in Episode 4 or 5....for some reason Mitchell is sitting on the floor of the house with his back against the front door...he's not having a good day bloodlust-wise, and hears the sound of voices outside... so he verrry slowly picks himself half-up of the floor and crawls (it's the only way I can describe it) the few feet to the window to look outside and sees three young girls walking past....VF said it was intent in his look that did it....and you could see Mitchell was up for a bite or two from the look of longing on his face...

    VF and I were discussing this very scene (34) and she went very strange when I did my own particular description....I think she had to go to bed in the end poor thing.

    Really wish I could see E2 of The Clinic if only for that one sea scene....god it must have been freezing, poor guy!

  • Comment number 56.

    Morning all...out for most of the day so don't know if I'll post again today.

    Eagle:...have you seen this? posted on twitter by Lionesskeeper


    Looks gorgeous I have to say...interesting..he cites Natalie Portman as his ideal 'film' girlfriend...wonder if he said that because he knows that Aidan as the hots for her..! God if/when we lose Aidan to LA I wouldn't be surprsied to find him making a beeline for her....

    Have a good day everyone....TwinA17..we're all dying to hear from you...read all the posts..we're very excited! ( not difficult mind...we're easily excitable..)

  • Comment number 57.

    Back briefly...

    Checked out Natalie P ....seems she's around 5' 3"....she has a bloke or did last year and moved to California to be near him.... hates smoking....is fearsomely academic (speaks fluent Hebrew and a smattering of three other languages) and would rather be learned than acting....brown,VF and others - provided this hasn't changed/ is actually true, I think we might be safe(ish)

    Still thinking about the intent, VF....he definitely had that look in his eyes *wobbles slightly*

    TwinA17: That title might not be quite right but I don't have the vertical line so have to use the 1 instead...any further info for us that is OK to say? Don't want to get you into trouble! How did your babies get chosen (if you can tell us)?

    Angifan: (48) Crawling along the tiled floor scene??...try the Eagle vid Aidan Turner on YouTube...it's at 3min....it's also on Cieria's vid Paint It Black but can't remember where...you'll love it just let your mind run wild!

  • Comment number 58.

    Angifan... Think it's when he took the DVD back out of the bin he was sitting on the floor, leaning against the wall then he kinda crawls to the kitchen and gets the DVD

  • Comment number 59.

    Yeah I'm not actually here lol - couldn't stay away when I found out what the video was though...but hey SweetL I'll let you go for it - don't want to pester Mr P too much and get on his bad side lol think I might have been bugging him for a bit too long now I might actually have to admit defeat (hmm at least I think thats what I'm doing...I've not done it before lol) Oh well back to the 3 year plan :-P I can be patient...honest...

    How is everyone anyway? I'll be back for a few minutes later - taking my nan to see the new ricky gervais film (she loves him - told you she was brilliant lol) gonna go down a bit early use works wi fi :-) want to check on my video and see if I have any lovely emails telling me they want to give me a job lol

  • Comment number 60.

    Eagle: Hope you enjoy the film with your Nan...blog later :-)

    Is there an Aidan (The Clinic) vid on YT, anyone...if so, would love to know what it's called so I can ..... do a bit of research hehe

    Thanks guys

  • Comment number 61.

    Phew, had enough of bending over bits of paper and then tearing them up cos I'm not happy with them...Millais I will never be!

    Just looked at the odd sonnet and noticed that he does a fair bit of nostril-flaring...not that I'm averse to that but it suits him...and he does have rather a cute nose...its OK, I'm in control this time..

    Angifan: Any luck finding the scene you wanted?

    Hope everybody else has had a good day. Tea calls, I think....

  • Comment number 62.

    Hello...is there anybody out there?(and if so, are you all well?)

    anglo...we have now moved on to his nostrils eh?...I am happy to go wherever it takes us. Hehe

  • Comment number 63.

    Vampy: Yes I'm here (makes a change) and feeling better by the day, thank you.

    Don't get me going now...I was under control earlier...oh well OK then if you insist...where shall we start? hehe

  • Comment number 64.

    Well, I've just been Rossetti getting hs kit off again....so I will go wherever you lead.....but still cannot get (34) the crawling across the floor thing out of my head...oh dear

  • Comment number 65.

    that should be 'watching' Roessetti....see what I mean

  • Comment number 66.

    Oh which episode is that then VF? I've not watched these since I saw them on TV...don't worry, hun, I know what he does to our grammar and spelling.

    That moving across the black and white tiles...gets to me too...what can we do about this....do we want to do anything? Which bit do we look at now? Take your pick...I love his eyes...got a fab pic on screensaver which shows his eyes off a treat....I just sit and stare at it...what's to become of us? hehe

  • Comment number 67.

    Well what I can do about it.....is to try and stop watching it for a start (yeah, cos that's gonna happen). We really are complete obsessive nut-jobs aren't we?

  • Comment number 68.

    Im still away, but had to check out the blog, knew the BH team would post the vid..off to re-watch it.!!Ive always been a vamp fan, longer than I care to admit...Showing my age here, but untill Mitchell came along I thought Frank Langella as Dracula was it.!!

  • Comment number 69.

    VF: Nut jobs....that describes us beautifully! I quite like being a nut job if it allows me to salivate over the vampire....well, not literally although I wouldn't turn down the opportunity, but you know what I mean...I've just thought about his chest as I've been checking over the sonnets and that open-necked shirt just makes me want to nuzzle even more....grrrr...nuzzle lol

  • Comment number 70.

    Brilliant: Hello, how's your hol going? Frank Langella....my god that's a blast from the past! Remember that film with Kate Nelligan with him as Dracula....he was another dark, dangerous type, wasn't he and now if you saw him you'd wonder why you ever thought that... he's white-haired, a little bit like Christopher Lee...all these vamps seem to be dark and smouldering (except that weird film with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt...boy that was odd)!

  • Comment number 71.

    Anglo, Found IT thanks for that, you realise that everytime we see black and white tiles we're going to get a knee tremble.

    Natalie Portman is small and dark as was ade's ex Charlene think that might be his type? Just going out for a hair colour.

    56) Russell looked so great in the pic love to have a night out with him bet he's a great laugh.

    Bye for now, just going to put a bit of slap on, my man is taking me out, meal and comedy club. Luv an stuff

  • Comment number 72.

    Angifan: Aw, have a lovely evening honey...still nursing the dodgy arm so am taking it easy....glad you found the bits you needed in the vid....I take it you'll be re-tiling the kitchen at some point?

  • Comment number 73.

    Yo everyone....had a great day out and now relaxing with glass of vino, watching Strictly where some of them are killing the salsa and Man cooking...what more could a girl want?..well the vampire of course.but trying to not be geedy...and failing.

    wasn't that pic of Russell fantastic...( surprised eagle didn't comment on it)...I've never seen him so gorgeous...God if he was straight I'd have to have him on my hot totty list

    Anglo:...yeh, the boys obessions with Natalie Portman....I don't know much about her and never seen her in any film. Showed her pics to Man:
    he said she was hot and understood AT's thing for her..only thing he said was that she didn't seem to have any boobs ( he likes boobs).
    I don't think that AT would care about her wanting to be more 'learned'..he's a very bright guy himself and he'd be attracted to that...dame it!

    Interested in what type of art you make anglo:..I tried my hand at watercolours in school but can't claim to be any good.

    Brilliant...good to have you in the 'Sex on Fire' Club...knew you wouldn't last out for long!

    Probably going out later but around for a while yet.

    Just to upset anglo and vampfan..may have to watch Aidan in the 2nd episode of The Clinic again....grrrrhhhh

  • Comment number 74.

    Brown: Russell was indeed very hot stuff in that pic....loved that suit...perhaps Eagle hasn't clocked it yet...shall we remind her?

    Miss Portman certainly is extremely pretty...weirdly, when they did the Star Wars film she was in (the first one, as Queen Amidala), she played the part of her own handmaiden...and the one playing the Queen but who really was a handmaiden was our own, our very own, Kiera Knightley. Apparently, the two look so alike that once they were made up, no-one on set could tell them apart. NP is, as she put it, rather like a boy in stature so very petite then, yes. She's not keen on smoking though; apparently hates it...don't know where that would leave her with our Aido...perhaps he'll give it up!

    Watercolours and pencil sketching...just done one small one of some land close to where those vans and stuff were a couple of weeks ago when I probably did see the vamp...it's lovely, very countrified. I'm not great but I get by...haven't sold anything yet though but one day, one day...

    Have lots of vids and sonnets to view...may even find time to find the odd episode of Des Rom to see again, preferably one with plenty of the vampire in it, although the others are all cute...I loved listening to their stories of making the series, on the BBC website for Des Rom...very insightful and funny, particularly Jennie Jacques.

    Have a lovely meal...just about to eat here too in five mins...may catch up later late-ish, prob when you get back...enjoy your dancing or pub or whatever you're up to this fine evening!

  • Comment number 75.

    Oh Oh...just read latest bio on Natalie Portman..apart from having the odd bit of rumpy pumpy with Sean Pennn she's apparantly single....ssshhh don't tell Aidan

  • Comment number 76.

    Brown: Sean Penn....strange taste she has....each to their own I guess....mind you, he's supposed to be a very bright guy so there's obviously something there for her....she hates smoking though..

    SweetL: Thanks for the guidance! Gottit, and yes, he was there right at the beginning and DJ-ing for the few seconds I saw him..he certainly looks a little younger, hair a little shorter, but god, he's just as sexy...

    You know ladies....he's gonna be one of those lucky men who just get better looking the older they get...how sickening is that....lucky for us though.

  • Comment number 77.

    ....mind you, very little stubble....it did make him look about 18 or 20....now I feel like a complete cradle-snatcher hehe

    Back later folks

  • Comment number 78.

    Hi Everyone!

    Just watched The History Boys for the first time... had the DVD all along! Russell looking cute in it! Took me right until the end of the film, when I saw his name, to realise where I'd seen Samuel Barnett before - in Des Rom!
    Brown(56), that picture of Russell is very sexy indeed!

    Right, back to Aidan talk now! Watched ep 2 of The Clinic again (on a bigger screen!) to get another look at Aidans other tattoo - some sort of Chinese/Japanese symbol from what I could see. His hair's quite long in the new series (just the perfect length and curlinessfor total sexiness)and he's just soooo cute & sexy playing football!

  • Comment number 79.

    He he... not long got back from Aunt's house... Little cousin was looking over my shoulder when I was on twitter and asked who Aidan was so I explained the whole thing of Being Human and she goes "Wow... I LOOOOOOOOVE Vampires!" so I said "well you'll looooove Aidan then" and left her with the link to watch them all online... I can't wait to see what she thinks... I'd have watched them with her but hubby was nagging that it was time to go, lol. Had a great day tho... went shopping with cousin... her bag collapsed so she needed a new one for school ASAP... it's weird... back in my day it was rucksacks designed for carrying heavy books... but these days it's big handbags, designer style stuff and then they wonder why it doesn't last long with all the heavy textbooks.

    Anglo... I used to be very Artistic ... I used to do dragons ALOT... my old school pal I met yesterday gave me a good earbashing over why did I stop and told me she STILL has a pic I did for her years ago!! She's gonna show me to prove it next time I meet with her, lol.

  • Comment number 80.

    Didnt get online earlier sorry :-S pic of russell? didnt see the whole video net cut out after about a minute or so lol is it at the end?

    film was brilliant you should go and watch it - made us both laugh :-)

    And of course samuel barnett was a history boy - one of the best :-D oh no on ever listens to me anymore do they lol

  • Comment number 81.

    Eagle,SweetL and Joooos: Hi there!

    Glad you've all had good weekends so far...now...

    Eagle: Very suave, cute pic of Russell with a bit of spiel to go with it - link below:


    The vid is of Tom the Runner and it has Aidan in it but none of the other cast members. Quite good actually...didn't know if this was the vid you couldn't see cos your net cut out....The pic of Russell is separate, it was posted on YT and someone cut it to (56). It's a pain having net probs and stuff...hope it's all resolved soooon.

    That film sounds a laff...must investigate!

    Joooos: Just seen that tiny little clip of Aidan DJing in The Clinic and another few seconds of him in the CLinic too, talking to a pregnant woman....not much stubble, soooo young-looking!! I feel like I've committed a crime with all that dirty talk we've been doing hehe

    SweetL: Ha ha....another vampire convert...we'll have an army soon so we can invade the BBC and make the cast our prisoners and do all sorts of videos with them...no that did not sound right...sounded good!

    Just seen Ben Turner on Casualty....The brow and dark curly hair and brown eyes are Aidan's, but not the rest...he's cute though, looks very boyish which probably means he's in his late 20s/early 30s....he looks very - and I hate using this word about men - sweet-looking (yuk, sorry, couldn't find another way of describing him)... still can't find pics of his Dad though, perhaps he's shy!

  • Comment number 82.

    Eagle: We doo listen, we doooo....I thought all the Des Rom guys plus Fred were lovely...they were in their vids on the Des Rom BBC site and I loved those videos.

    Must get DVD player/recorder for Christmas with cash I get...really missed out on loads and want to see the History Boys because everybody is raving about it...

    SweetL: It's great trying to keep up the art stuff....I try and get out when I can but it's the fact that I no longer have a car and work 5 days a week and now it's autumn I can't paint in the evenings cos it's too dark...so it's evenings only at the mo...even if you have only half an hour (difficult with kids I know) but just doodle even if it's just to keep your hand in...you never know when you might need it again.

    Schoolbags...yes...ours were heavy-duty, half-inch thick leather.. wouldn't dared have fallen apart! I had mine for 7 years and it was still holding up pretty well apart from a few stitches...these new-fangled things...pah, useless, it's all keeping up with the Jones' now and who has what designer make....rant, rave, seethe....right, that's better, rant over....takes it right out of me.

  • Comment number 83.

    ....and all I need to complete this evening's blogging is a lovely pic of Aidan emerging from the sea in his shorts, courtesy of RTE's The Clinic...which I will immediately put on my desktop...oh yeah

  • Comment number 84.

    Eagle: what couldn't you access because it had been taken off hun? Just had another look at Tom the Runner vid above and it's fine... were you talking about The Clinic or something else? If it was the vid, try it again...good luck :)

  • Comment number 85.

    I checked RTE but it said you can only watch them for 21 days and there weren't any available now...

    Tho.. check the site about "The Clinic" and there's a picture gallery with a couple of Aidan pics... including one which looks VERY much the Mitchell we know and love... and another with him looking very cute but in what has got to be the naffest Cardi ever worn by man... he's just lucky he looks cute in everything, lol.

  • Comment number 86.

    I'm a bit late with this, had a busy weekend lol.

    But great vid!! It's really nice too see the people behind the scenes. The one who people often don't think about.


  • Comment number 87.

    Hi Sweet....Thanks for the advice about pics, must investigate...

    Cute in everything isn't the word...bin liner included... he really does....and the rest of us mere mortals (no pun intended there) spend too long working out whether this pair of tights go with that pair of shoes, well I used to but as I live in trousers these days it doesn't really apply to me any more lol...I am very hopeful that one day I will see him again and this time pluck up some courage from somewhere and actually speak to him.

    Re the t-shirt thing I had with him...the lime green one...I've got one in that colour so he's always welcome to borrow it as long as I can watch while he changes hehe

    C: Hello again...busy weekend isn't it....I think most people have been, the site is a bit quiet...time to catchup with the vids/look for pics of the gorgeous vampire and have a few glasses of wine with friends!

  • Comment number 88.

    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry new to this as you can tell from the fact I hadn't replied straight away!
    Also sorry I can't tell you anything about storyline, signed contracts behind dark, closed doors and all that!!lol
    Have to admit something terrible now that before my boys had the job, I'd never seen the show(I know really sorry) but watched it since and it's amazing. Met everyone. Lenora, Russel and yes Aidan. They were all sooooooo nice, but that goes for everyone. I didn't really know who all the crew were as everyone was so down to earth. Everyone kept asking if we needed anything even (now I know who he is) Marcus Mr Make up man. Really such a lovely bunch of people.
    As everyone here seems to be asking about Aidan, I can say he was extremely nice. Very good looking but so humble. The 3 main characters were lovely with my boys and were really cute with them. I can see why the programme has such a big following but I'm sure if people saw how lovely everyone on Being Human was there would be even more followers.
    Sorry I couldn't give you more info but don't want to spoil it all for you.
    Take care all.
    P.s. they were talking about the twins on Twitter but they didn't cry, true actors!!!!lolxxxxx

  • Comment number 89.

    TwinA17: Hi...thanks for coming back to us...it's a bit quiet at the moment but I'm in and out for a while and just saw your post.

    Amazing stuff....we are just so envious of you being there and just watching what goes on...it's great to know that everybody was really nice to be with...makes a world of difference.

    As you said, most of us are totally besotted with Aidan....we always knew he was a lovely bloke by some of the interviews he did and some of the things he said, not starry at all, but so damned talented (as they all are)...so it's nice to know that our intuition was correct...now I feel so much better knowing that he's the kind of person I thought he was! Lovely..

    We wouldn't expect you to tell us any of the storylines, that would be grossly unfair...we just bang on about it a bit, well OK a lot, on the blog and come up with our own rather hilarious scenarios about who does what to whom and why, etc....it keeps us off the streets!

    Don't forget to watch the next series from scratch...I missed a lot of it first time round and had to catch up - have heard on some video or other I saw a few days ago (just remembered this) that the date of 22nd January was mentioned for the start of the new series (is that true BH PROD TEAM?), so we won't go out for 8 weeks on that night of the week....can't wait!

    If there's anything else you are allowed to tell us, like whether you....... actually...... got to..... touch.... Aidan, please feel free to let us know...Brown, VF, C, Angifan, SweetLyssa and a few others would be willing listeners.

    Thanks again, Twin, for letting us know a bit more....now there'll be no stopping us!

  • Comment number 90.

    Hi TwinAl7,
    Thanks for giving us all more insight into the BH cast and crew....lovely to hear about them all from someone else who's been on set. I'm looking forward to seeing your babies on Series 2 of BH.

    Aah, yes, Aidan we do all go on about him a bit (well, a lot), but do love everyone else too...

    Morning Anglo (nearly afternoon now!)

    P.S. RIP Stephen Gately

  • Comment number 91.

    Tom the Runner looks like a good choice of subject. Oooh, dammit, I guess I'll have to move to the UK to watch all these videos! :-(

    But don't be fooled by Tom's happy smile--if you're a fan, working on a beloved TV show really isn't the place to be, because you can't be a fan... and woe to the person who forgets that! Sticking by the rules makes you miserable and flaunting them puts your career in jeopardy.

    Maybe the rules are more lax in the UK or on certain productions, but here in the States? Whew! You'd better believe that things are STRICT, baby! If you show up on set with a camera, they'll confiscate it right off and you won't get it back until you leave to go home. If they catch you taking photographs on set (and trust me, there are eyes everywhere and you can't pull anything over on a production crew!), they FIRE you straight away, then take the camera and delete what photos you took. And you get a black mark on your record that can (and often does) affect you being hired back by that production.

    As for talking with the big-name talent, that's also solid grounds for firing; the rule is that you don't talk to them unless they talk to you first. During the filming of an airport scene in "Yes Man," a guy was pretty much carried off the set by security for going up to Jim Carrey, shaking his hand and introducing himself.

    What's worse is that you're warned at the beginning of the day about all sorts of things--no cell phones on the set, no cameras, don't bother the cast and crew, don't touch the craft services table meant for certain actors or that crew, stay in/out of a certain area, be aware that the crew eats lunch before anyone else, etc.--and it's just selfish ignorance that comes into play when those rules are flaunted.

    So being in or around a show that you adore? Nice in theory, but very bad in principle. On a production, there's got to be a certain amount of TRUST involved--trust that everyone is "safe" in every sense of the word and unencumbered by unnecessary distractions. Like someone's errant flash going off and ruining a scene.

  • Comment number 92.

    Joooos: Morning, sorry afternoon hun...how are you today?

    Lovely to hear from Twin....I bet her two boys are just cute in the scenes....total professionals already, didn't shed a tear!

    Great to hear that our man is just as lovely-sounding as he is lovely everything else....he really does seem to have been kissed by the fortune and fair-of-face fairies.....and that everybody else is just as great.

    Incredibly sad and shocking about Stephen Gately....Twitter quite busy with that earlier on this morning...he always seemed such a gentle person, sensitive and with that lovely clear voice....RIP

  • Comment number 93.

    Monster: Oooeerrrr....sounds a bit scary over there in the States... mind you, BH isn't really a big-budget film so maybe the rules in Hollywood or for any massively expensive feature are different because we're talking stars worth millions in the eyes of the studios...BH is smaller though no less important to its fans!! but because it's an annual thing, unlike a soap, or a mega production, perhaps things are different here..see the blog from TwinA17 whose twins were on the set of the next series of BH...she was chatting to everybody and they were talking to her..maybe we're just a bit more informal here about such things..

    And anyway, few people (being British and a little reserved!) would dare to go up to someone as big as Jim Carrey or Susan Sarandon and say hi, I'm so-and-so...they'd just stand there and stare whilst trying not to...we'd kind of end up abiding by the rules, generally, even without meaning to. It depends on the actors and director too I guess.

  • Comment number 94.

    Admit to have just got up and had breakfast...this is what happens when you don't have babies and galavant until 3am!

    Just taking in the news about Stephen Gately..cause of death unclear at the moment. Very sad for his partner, family and fellow Boyzone members...I loved the group when I was younger...hadn't really followed their comeback.

    TwinA17..great to hear from you..understand that you can't dish the news/gossip from the set....VERY jealous of the time that you spent with the cast .esp the beautiful one. Hope babies are well.

    Sweet:..if you can get RTEPlayer up and running you need to click on Sept 27th and then Oct 4th to see the vids of the first two episodes of The Clinic
    Anglo: don't know what you mean by little stubble on Aidan in the new series of The Clinic...'tis true that in the previous series he looked very young ..no stubble and shorter hair...would have been filmed last year sometime. This new series was filmed over May-July of this year...just before Comic Con. In eps 2 he looks exactly as he has been loking in the recent blog vids..acually even more gorgeous if that's possible...there was a fantastic close up scene with him in his role as receptionist where he's loking worried over his daddy....and the scene when he comes out of the sea? mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Monster..what you say could be true here in uk for all I know..wonder if what you say applies more to films and big, big stars . Sort of have the feeling that isn't the case with tv quite so much here...you may have noticed in one of the BHTeam vids ( the one with Lenora) that she is posing to have her photo taken with 2 fans so get the feeling that this tv crew/cast/set more relaxed..and happy.

    Around for much of day ...stuff to do...like cleaning, ironing..yuck.before we can play.

  • Comment number 95.

    Brown: Hi there...

    The stubble issue....I saw a little trailer of The Clinic on YT, no idea which series it was, and Aidan was behind the reception right at the start, just for about 30 seconds or so...he looked much younger because he had very little 5 o'clock shadow or stubble and his hair was a little shorter than now ....as I have no idea when it was made I don't know how old he was in this particular episode.... he just looked a little more fresh-faced....mind you, the hours he's put in with BH, night shoots, make-up and heaven knows what for eight months or so, has probably given him a bit of an edge with his looks.... useful for the part of Mitchell (in his mid-20s whilst being nearly 100)... it gives him a mature feel....think he'll get better with age too.

    It's great to know he's apparently pretty normal and grounded too... we knew that, didn't we, deep down?....and that the other cast/crew are great.. Now I've gone all soppy...

    Where were you carousing last night (you hound!)?

  • Comment number 96.

    Brown: Just checked .... it was an episode from 2008...it definitely must be BH that's making him look slightly more ... edgy (not the right word but it'll have to do)!....still as sexy as ever though, moreso in fact.

  • Comment number 97.

    Well, I know how he feels, Iv got cross country new week lol :P

  • Comment number 98.

    Woooah Midnight, where've you been lately, been keeping up the the blogs?

    Cross country my god we used to do that at school....frightening memories of that, crossing flooded ditches and mud a foot deep...no thanks, been there, done that, did the washing..!

    How the devil are you?

  • Comment number 99.

    Eagle: Your Aidan Turner vid should be 900 viewings by now....I had a look earlier which should have made up the 900th view so here's hoping there have been more since then :-)

    Hope you're well!

  • Comment number 100.

    Sad to say, the strict rules of on-set behavior apply to pretty much every production involving a legit studio in Hollywood, regardless of how big the star. Smaller productions are less tense, but it's rare for anyone with any real acting credits to "donate" their talents to a small film (read: act for free), so you're not under the same strict "LEAVE THE ACTORS ALONE!" mentality.

    Though sometimes the actors themselves break the rules, which is delightful! During a "Grey's Anatomy" shoot, there were 20 extras left sitting in a parking lot for about four hours, waiting while the show's location shoot returned to the studio. They had no food, drinks, directions for PAs, etc.--just left sitting there in hot weather. Patrick got back earlier than everyone else, saw these people, went to his trailer, retrieved an entire case of water (full bottles even, not little half-bottles!) and brought it over to them. Nobody else had offered up anything else, and he didn't ask someone to do this--he did it himself. Now that's a man!
