To those who didn't get tickets to the Being Human exclusive screening, fear not - BH creator Toby Whithouse is here to offer you another chance to get your hands on a pair... but you'll need your mobile phone for this one.

We have an extra ten pairs of tickets available to win by answering the question set by Toby in his video...

George was scarred by the attack that turned him into a werewolf - but whose idea was it to keep the scars still visible and unhealed, even years later?

A) Toby Haynes (Director, series 1, episodes 1 & 2)
B) Russell Tovey (the actor playing 'George')
C) Marcus Whitney (Make-Up Director on Being Human)

For your chance to win one of these ten pairs of tickets to the preview screening of the first episode of series two of Being Human, just go to bbc.co.uk/mobile/beinghumancomp on your phone. The competition closes at 10am on Monday 21st December.

And for more details of the screening, check out this previous blog post.

Good Luck!

  • Comment number 8.

    I'd help - I have internet on my phone but I'm too old fashioned lol I've never trusted it not to rack up my phone bill so never used it :-S I'm getting an iphone next though so I'll have to use it then :-P

  • Comment number 9.

    Brilliant...just sent you a DM on twitter...it might help

  • Comment number 10.

    awww.... aren't they lovely to the fans...

  • Comment number 11.

    I know the answer but havent got web on my phone so looks like I'll miss out again!

  • Comment number 12.

    Yeah......I have no clue about the answer either. Help me out? :)

  • Comment number 13.

    it's not mentioned in a comment, it's in a blog post itself I think, from quite a while ago.

  • Comment number 14.

    for those of you like me without web access on mobile - I just did it online - using the address given above - it redirects and lets you enter the answer plus your mobile number - it said thank-you for my entry so seems to work! here's hoping

  • Comment number 15.

    ^^if I'd have known that, that'd have saved a few pennies!

  • Comment number 16.

    maybe I should have kept it to myself - increased my chances!

  • Comment number 17.

    haha maybe! but then how many people know the answer as well? ;)

  • Comment number 18.

    Don't worry you internetphoneless peeps.... you can still access the page on your computer!!! just put the link into the address bar and then it'll redirect you to a page you can veiw on your computer!! good luck guys!! I already got my tickets but I think it's A... without searching for the true answer, lol!!

  • Comment number 19.

    Does that mean all the original tickets have been assigned then? I've been waiting for an email but heard nothing, well that wasn't very first come first served was it!?

    Thank you for the competition, I will enter just as soon as I work out how to use mobile internet! ;)

  • Comment number 20.

    Nic... just use it on your computer... and I think if you were getting a ticket you'd have got it by now.

  • Comment number 21.

    Im trying really hard not to be annoyed about ten pairs of tickets not being available on the previous first-come-first-served application round - maybe they are real extras?? think positive and grateful ...which I am really

  • Comment number 22.

    Hi guys Ive sent few blogs last few days but no one has answered me :-( sure it's just the excitment I have changed my name to my profile name maybe that's why. Anyway I have tickets but can try for someone else I don't know the answer but can research I have Internet on my iPhone so can try. Got my phone last week I'm blogging from it now I love it as can keep up to date Reading the blog....

  • Comment number 23.

    Hiya everyone! How are we all this evening?

    Huge thanks to you for offering us this, Toby. MWAH! And huge thanks also to you Blog Towers angels for bringing it to us.

    :D Just entered - the reply says we will find out who was successful on or before December 23rd.

    ^^ KC

  • Comment number 24.

    So excited about going And really hope some more of u can get some tickets, do we know who is going yet? From cast and production team?

  • Comment number 25.

    Aww they really spoil us don't they. It was such a good idea to keep some tickets aside for the bloggers. Especially considering the non-bloggers who applied 4 times! *rolls eyes*

    I remember watching the vid that has the answer ages ago. Good luck to everyone who has entered. :)

    Moonlightglow- sorry you feel slightly ignored. I do tend to just pop on here comment and go. I think everyone is just excited about the screening and it has all become disjointed with all the new blogs. It's hard to keep up with everything. It'll get even more confusing when the next series starts and we have an influx of new posters. Can't wait though! :D

  • Comment number 26.

    Hi super and thanks I guessed it probably wld be all the excitment. Can't wait either gives us something to really look forward too post x mas blues and another year begins. This one looks darker so I'm excited to see what they do with the caracters ...

  • Comment number 27.

    moonlightglow; ditto what Super said!
    Can you give a clue as to what you were called on blog before then I might be able to connect you in the old brain...

  • Comment number 28.

    Amanda davis just my name Hun and thanks x

  • Comment number 29.

    Lol mlg - are u going then yeah? What time u getting in? trying to figure out when everyones arriving and no one really knows lol im thinking of getting into london sort of between 1 and 3 that way i dont have to get up too early and still have time to do pressies in the morning :-D

  • Comment number 30.

    I can't cope with twitter anymore. I'm getting replies to tweets that are hours old.

    Right I want to be in London at about 2. Then I'll try to work out the tube system without getting lost or squished in the doors for once.

  • Comment number 31.

    Well I live close so I'm waiting for everyone else to say what time they're coming and go with the earlieest (impatient much?pmsl)

    Goodluck for anyone with out tickets...

    Dorina... were people REALLY applying that many times? my god! That's appalling and what would they do with 8 tickets (4 X 2)?!!

  • Comment number 32.

    Lyssa I was reading the FB BH comments during the ticket chaos and afterwards and this guy said he had applied four times. Then someone called him a selfish idiot.

  • Comment number 33.

    Super - had a look and I'll be in kings corss at quarter to 2 ...well 1.43 to be precise :-P its £15 as apposed to £60.70 for half hour later lol...I'm not that desperate for an extra half hour in bed!! Lol

  • Comment number 34.

    K what time shall we leave? 11ish?

  • Comment number 35.

    yeah think mine leaves about 11.10 - a suprisingly quick one but I ave about 3 minutes to change so am gonna have to leg it...

  • Comment number 36.

    That was meant to say "have" I wasnt trying to be street lol

  • Comment number 37.

    The next day I'm on about. Cheapest one for me is 12.20 depart at st pancras. So just need to hang around in the morning for a bit. :) Sorted.

  • Comment number 38.

    We not doing anything next day then? its bizarre how much the prices vary within like half an hour :-S

  • Comment number 39.

    We can do stuff in the morning and we've got the afternoon on the 7th to mess about. I've got to back for my kids though. Plus the tickets are double the price a couple of hours later. It's stupid.

  • Comment number 40.

    OK no worries. If we stay I might stay in London a bit later just get moneys worth lol but I'll still come with you to station and stuff if you want

  • Comment number 41.

    well, i have no mobile internet access, but i managed to applyon my home internet, i think it worked, so people who don't have mobile internetaccess, give that a try aswell, no harm in it!
    And also, what a brilliant question!!! I knew straight away, remembered when they said the answer to that...
    merry christmas to all the BH team!

  • Comment number 42.

    I would enter the competition but I've decided that it's just not meant to be! haha! I will have to wait till January 10th and be glued to the screen the whole way through!!
    I honestly can't wait!!!
    Thanks though BH prod team!!! and thanks for making us even MORE excited than we would be without the blog! LOVE these increasing number of blogs btw :) x

  • Comment number 43.

    Yo guys,

    Just to clarify, the original ticket allocation for the first-come-first-served tickets has now been given out, so if you didn't receive an email I'm afraid you've been unsuccessful... Bad times.

    But everyone is still in with a chance of getting one of 10 pairs of tickets with this new mobile comp, which doesn't close until 21st Dec... Good times!

    But now it's time to whack on some some Christmas choons and get excited about the festive season. The fangs and santa hat look is a winner in this office...

  • Comment number 44.

    BH PROD TEAM: Thanks guys for the comments and help you've given us...and the opportunity for some to get a hold of extra tickets!! Some of us will be with you on 7th...very much looking forward to it too...bet you all look very fetching in your fangs and Santa hats!


  • Comment number 45.

    BH PROD TEAM: aren't you lovely to the fans... you really do take care of your fan base.

    i'm going to be snuggled up from home on 10th ready to go... i do hope everyone has a fantastic evening on the 7th. should be a great night! x

    ANGLO and all going - i hope you have a super-duper time and really enjoy yourselves. you deserve it x

  • Comment number 46.

    Fangs and a santa hat...anyone else thinking they could totally rock that look? lol

  • Comment number 47.

    Allyska: Thank you sweetie...i was very lucky i was given a spare ticket otherwise I'd never had had the chance! I hope you're feeling loads better...as long as you look after yourself, hydrate lots and keep warm, you'll be fine...just don't go back to work too early! lol

    Eagle: Fangs....and Mitchell...and the chair....what kind of a picture does that conjure up for us then? hehe

  • Comment number 48.

    well I'm depressed no tickets and too late to enter the competition this weekend it will be last two episodes followed by alcohol
    side bar between the 7th and 11th anyone lucky enought to win please silence on the screening

  • Comment number 49.

    Ewan: has no-one a spare ticket for you? If you're on Twitter you could try there...we'll try not to put spoilers up on blog after 7th and before 11th fingers crossed...all we'll say is, don't miss it on 10th January, it's fab, loads of action...which is what you already know so no spoilers there, then! Good luck with ticket-finding...hope you get one..

  • Comment number 50.

    not on twitter but the alcohol will help my resignation but is there going to be a Cessna game of recognize the vampire during the series?

  • Comment number 51.

    Ewan: lol...heaven knows! haven't quite got my head around CenSSA yet but treating it as a bit of a fun extra for the series...not quite worked out if any of what's on there is going to be linked to Series 2 yet but will be chilled either way...wondering if there's a connection between the Scottish chief of police on CenSSA and the time when Mitchell was reminiscing about his time in Glasgow and had a run-in with a scotsman who didn't like irishguys and said he'd be happy if he never saw another one again...Mitchell thinks "that can be arranged mate"...wonder if it's the same police guy or connected in some way...hmmmm..

  • Comment number 52.

    Anglo - I didn't mention the chair lol although I did hear a funny story about Russell and a chair the other day lol and ropes - it made me giggle

  • Comment number 53.

    no can't be the scott was referred to as big and the photo dose not fit his description a soldier on active duty would be younger as well plus from the way they laughed i don't think he's around anymore. still as the day approaches we will see.
    what I'm waiting for is the next full moon posting will it be more claw marks of foot prints in the mud

  • Comment number 54.

    Ewan can I ask where you're from?

  • Comment number 55.

    Birmingham why?

  • Comment number 56.

    am feeling loads better now ANGLO thanks. just feel like i have a normal bug now. am able to sit up again now and head is much less painful. am under quarantine til monday - can't wait to go out again!! today has consisted of fire, sofa, knitting and non-stop kirsty allsop's home-made christmas - which has made for a very happy me! not back to work til jan 5th so all good.

    i do think those lucky enough to go will have a fantastic time. i hope you make a real event of it.

  • Comment number 57.

    HELP!! Does BeingHuman Productions, or anyone working for BBC... I got my 2 tickets through the post in my junk mail and pressed delete rather than 'not junk!' scream and cry!!!! called up the BBC and told them of the dilemma, they said they would put a note near my name and number on the guestlist at the door, but cannot resend the tickets. This sounded all a bit ambiguous to me... anyone know if i got much of a chance/who works at the door/worth me coming down with just my name and number.... The 2 seats are defo there for me, just a matter of getting the, I have never felt stressed, but now i know how it feels.... asrghhhh

  • Comment number 58.

    anneka; just a thought..just because you deleted them doesn't mean they have totally gone...check your deleted section on your email...it may still be sitting there and you can restore it. ..unless of curse you delted the 'delete' section...but check the 'dustbin' anyways...goodluck

  • Comment number 59.

    BHProd, thanks for clarifying about the first-come-first-served tickets, but just wondering if you could clarify with this new, 'mobile' comp, will entries be accepted that aren't done through a mobile, like people are suggesting? I applied through my mobile, and could have saved a bit of money if I could have done it online instead!

  • Comment number 60.

    I managed to get a ticket the first time around and can't wait but best of luck to those trying...

    Weird thing for me was I only got one ticket, despite everything saying they would come in pairs. No biggy as only me going but when I phoned the BBC to check I was told that I originally only asked for one. To be honest I went through the form so quickly when the site came back up that I really don't remember. However I thought you applied for yourself and got sent the pair...

    As I said not a big deal just a little odd.

    Anyway best of luck and hope to meet some of you there...

  • Comment number 61.


    When you applied it had the option for 1 or 2 tickets so you must have left it as one.

    Think the info on the site is very general to cover all the tickets for shows and screenings as it also said it was a lottery when infact it wasn't... it was first come first served... and it said tickets were no garantee of seats which again was wrong because the tickets are garanteed seats...

  • Comment number 62.

    Allyska - glad you're feeling better! :-) I was watching kirsties homemade christmas too...I was with her right through all the sexual innuendo's very funny and ridiculously over the top decorations/presents etc - thats all very me - but then she started putting glitter on food and totally lost me lol why can't food just look like food anymore? Nobody wants to eat a bauble!

    As for the "first come first served" thing - it wasnt unfortunately :-( I know I applied before certain other people who got tickets and I didn't...but no matter I got one anyway because the bloggers are, as Toby said, very lovely kind wonderful people :-)

  • Comment number 63.

    I actually can't wait to hear back from this mobile comp....I'll need to book the time off of work, the screening's 3 days into my brand new job, oops....mind you, that's assuming I'll have got tickets from the comp :s

  • Comment number 64.

    ha ha EAGLE - unfortunately i really like the look of the glitter on the mince pies. i still feel like yuck, and have just attempted and failed to do my 4th attempt at internet food shopping. i just can't get my head around virtual shopping in my flu-ridden state so will attack the supermarket with vengeance on monday! i desperately want some orange juice but can't go out in public and make people ill so i shall have to wait!

    i've made loads of wreaths, decorations and stuff this year. my kitchen still looks like an artist's studio and i'm in no fit state to de-clutter it yet! in fact, i will probably just end up making more mess and more presents! my christmas isn't exactly going to the plan i had, but i shall stumble into it organised by the time it comes... i hope!

    i can't believe i didn't get a ticket to be honest, but i was going to give it away anyhow. i'm glad all the old faithfuls have got their tickets sorted. i def wouldn't be able to go having taken a week off with swineflu! but am v. much looking forward to the new series.

  • Comment number 65.

    I wish I had allyska's good heart - Im going to have to stop looking at this and Twitter - all the arrangements being made and excitement for 7th building up. I still cant believe I didnt get a ticket - and I never win competitions. Oh well

  • Comment number 66.

    Allyska - oh dear - couldn't you get a friend/family member/neighbour to get you some and leave it on your doorstep :-P and i think maybe the glittery food stuff comes from working with kids - you let them decorate cakes and end up with something thats mostly icing and sparkly things lol

    celtisgrace - dont lose faith theres stll hope for the competition stick with us yeah :-)

  • Comment number 67.

    and ooh i wont spoil the news that joooos shared on twitter this morning cos she found so should get the glory lol but i just have to say eeeeeeeeeeeee because Steve John Shepherd is gonna be in the new series playing a vampire how cool?! Well "an old friend of mitchells" so im assuming a vampire :-S

  • Comment number 68.

    I'm new to the blog and as I'm living in Canada at the moment, (where they've yet to show BH1!), I am out of the loop for any tickets to any special event, so this is all the vicarious thrill for me! Thanks for being such an active group; I'm nearly up to speed on two years of BH history just from your posts. To brownirisheyes1; your YT channel makes the other researchers in my dept very happy. Merci. ; )

  • Comment number 69.

    Haha Hiya Shohga...erm yeah we talk a lot - sorry :-P but glad you're catching up - so have you not seen BH? Or have you got the dvdvd?

  • Comment number 70.

    Hello all...nice to meet you Shohga....
    Yeah lol, I apologise if any of those comments were of questionable taste....but really all of our minds are in the gutters!
    Lol, welcome to the blog :D

  • Comment number 71.

    celticgrace and others: I'll keep fingers crossed for you all re extra tickets comp. Think you'll prrbably hear later on Monday.

    shoga: hi to you...has you watched he series before you moved to Canada then? We think we're cold in the uk at the mo but my daughter recently moved to Canada as well and she tells me that it's -3 dgrees!

    Quite a few of the bloggers have BH videos up on YT which you may want to check out although I think Brown's is the only one with vids completely dedicated to Aidan Turner....and if you and your dept colleagues love him you'll have to join a very long queue here...!

  • Comment number 72.

    A very very very long queue lol

  • Comment number 73.

    Sorry..* shogha .not shoga ..and * have you watched the series.
    hands cold...that's my excuse anyway...

  • Comment number 74.

    Thanks everyone! I have the DVD set from Series One. Love the show! We really don't have anything like it. There are only a few pegs for TV time slots in North America--the same shows over and over and over. There's an authenticity to the performances on BH that make it utterly believable, no matter the fantasy storyline. That is so refreshing! I await the reports of Series 2 in January. It might be a good time to get into zen training to make myself more patient...sigh.

  • Comment number 75.

    Zen is finite in its cappasity to contain desire.

  • Comment number 76.

    thanks for encouraging words all - I will try to be more "graceful" - I will need more than zen next week - I'll be in France and wont hear about comp. til I get back - peace to all bloggers - it'll be 10th very soon

  • Comment number 90.

    Not bothered, vampire, human, whatever.
    I'm easy (no you dirty minds, not in that sense. Well, actually...)

  • Comment number 91.

    ATfan1: Think they should have Ben Turner in BH3 if he's not in BH2...they could pass him off as Mitchell's brother or younger version of his da or someone...

  • Comment number 92.

    ATfan1: God now you've got me thinking all sorts lol...Ben...Aidan....my mind is running riot!

  • Comment number 93.

    or AT in Casualty, I'm happy with either lol.
    But I don't think Ben can do an Irish accent so it'd have to be Casualty and AT would have to do English....Hmmmm......better think about that some more!

  • Comment number 94.

    92 - Anglo welcome to my world! I'm in a permenate state of delirium lol!

  • Comment number 95.

    God the thought of those 2 has turned my mind to mush!

  • Comment number 96.

    ATfan1: What do you think four months of this has done to mine?....I was quite normal....sort of....when I started this....now I'm a wreck....are you talking both at once btw?

  • Comment number 97.

    Well, I've always been like this, but the blog just made things worth.
    And as I said, either or both I don't mind as long as theres Turner in one form or the other.....

  • Comment number 98.


    Good god, told you my brain was mush!

  • Comment number 99.

    ATfan1: LOL....what are you like....you can tell it's boredom Saturday can't you?....wonder if the Mods are asleep? Yes, well, two are definitely better than one..hehe
