JAGGAT AND KEMP: LLOYD TELLS ALL

Post categories:

Garret Keogh, Online Editor | 13:00 UK time, Monday, 8 February 2010

Lloyd has revealed all about the history of Kemp & Jaggat in his latest video broadcast.

In a surprisingly candid move he discusses Kemp's religious upbringing, Lucy's car crash and the true nature of their research.

One theory for Lloyd's openness is that he's aiming to stem a backlash from followers of his website and YouTube page, who have been questioning his work in recent weeks. However, whether the move will regain the trust of his followers remains to be seen.

Lloyd is also promising a major revelation about Kemp's past, which may shed light on the motives of this mysterious man.

    I'd dearly love to comment but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a blog post or video...

    Do we know why this is BH PROD?

  • Comment number 2.

    It's appeared! Now I'll watch...x

  • Comment number 3.

    protestant father to catholic priest - interesting!!

    off to lecture now!!!

  • Comment number 4.

    Dramalovely: Afternoon! Enjoy your lecture...

    So we understand a little more about why Lucy and Kemp are the way they are but it doesn't explain everything. Frankly if you are near-genius one week and then, following a coma, suddenly a religious crank, that's a scary thought...figures why Lucy is such a weird character...and Kemp too...wonder what else he's hiding....something supernatural?

    Lloydy-boy still trying to convince himself he's innocent in all this....mmmm OK...not convinced!

    Next three episodes...watch out!

  • Comment number 5.

    Yay for Lloydy boy :-) very interesting x

  • Comment number 6.

    not really buying this? Lucy is a laughing stock as a scientist? Kemp a catholic priest? makes them a fringe crazy threat rather than something more sinister?

    the chief inspector seems more of a mainstream Human threat than them? ie a more basic challenge to the housemates'wish to be more human?

    and their motivation is eradicating Evil? - the 3/4 have seemed more about undeadness and supernatural curses than "evil"? - the moral choices are different?

    Im obviously taking this way too seriously lol

  • Comment number 7.

    hi everyone...soooo Lloydy Lloydy..what interesting tit-bits you've given us! But sorry to tell you Lloyd...no circle of silence here my friend...I didn't buy into that...and it's time you asked yourself what have YOU bought into ...
    Wondering if Kemp is still involved in exorcisms..but even more interested in the 'shocking' event which turned him from religious zealot to the even more dangerous and driven 'mental' he clearly has become.
    Anglo: so true about Lucy. Unlike Kemp though I still think (despite the trailer bit for eps 6 which shows her agreeing to some sort of attack on the vampires) that she is against killing and will, somehow, try to 'save' Mitchell and other vampires..and Nina.

    Talking of Nina..eagle, I share your disappointment that she wasn't in last night's episode...seems she's 'out of action' until the next full moon.

    Watched eps 5 again last night ans realised that George had stopped his involuntary swearing: how has that happened when it was getting steadily worse and the wolf has not yet had opportunity to rage again..?

    Did enjoy eps 5 but it wasn't my favourite eps. No doubt repeating what others may have said but ...thought the parallels between Mitchell and the paedophile in their explanations and languagse ( ' in my bones' for why they struggle to give up their addictions were strong...use of same language all added to that

  • Comment number 8.

    Sorry...think I pressed a button accidently!...not sure last bit of that last post made sense!

    Thought Aidan's acting was particularly strong last night especially in the scene with Lucy in the kitchen. The vunerable Mitchell showing through

    I'm wondering if Mitchell can somehow rescue the dead Chief Constable situation...maybe he could ask Ivan to clear up the mess or maybe Ivan offers to claim it was his 'kill'...don't think Mitchell recruited him...hope not!

    And the quest of Annie finding a purpose continues next week when she attempts to help contact between the living and the deceased...somehow you just know that's not goingto turn out well..

  • Comment number 9.

    I thought the parallels got a bit confused? Mitchell says it's not addiction but cowardice? not sure why he needed to go on about that?

    then it's about having support to be good and having someone to do it for? then it's the parallels with addiction (and sexual compulsions?) - and then it's about confronting "what you are" ?

    cant decide if this is really interesting complexity - or just confused/throw it all in? may take my own advice and trust Toby!

  • Comment number 10.

    Hiya celticgrace: I think it was showing that trying to stop addictions needs both courage and support although ultimately it is down to individual will power to see it through.

    Forgot to mention Sam and Molly...don't think they are supernaturals and that's another situation that somehow you just know is not going to end well.

  • Comment number 11.

    hi Dorina - yes that was a good parallel- showing how -as an addict - he could turn to Josie and Lucy to help him be good - shows how hard it's been to stay off blood all this time -
    but I didnt think he killed the chief inspector because he couldnt stay off blood any longer? - it was to save the vampires? from being turned into the CIs illegal army - destroying all his efforts to turn them good?
    not sure how even if Lucy was right for him - she could have helped him avoid all this? as George said it hasnt recently been about the bloodlust that's defined his last 50+ years - unless the writers are saying that the bloodlust will always out?
    as I said - v complicated
    not sure Sam and Molly will be supernaturals? I know Bristol is a hotspot but really! that many?

  • Comment number 12.

    Oh yeh I didn't mean he killed the Chief Con for the blood...no...that was clearly because he felt he 'had no choice' ( we keep hearing this from Mitchell don't we?) after Chief said he would hound all the vampires if Mitchell didn't basically do his bidding.

  • Comment number 13.

    cant believe i forgot to mention herrick - was great to see him again but he did seem very out of character :-S i guess 40 years is a long time and hes changed a lot which is understandable. jason was fantastic as always :-)

  • Comment number 14.

    The police fella - he didnt kill for the blood did he it was all over the place he didnt look like like he'd had any - bit daft really he was gonna kill him he might as well have had a drink lol

  • Comment number 15.

    got enough of it over his face!

    tho not as much as in 60's shot! ugh! and you dont get to say that very often at a shot of AT!

  • Comment number 16.

    watching again - Mitchell in handcuffs!

    get in there vamp up, vamp out, whatever it is you do and rip this .. to shreds ...

  • Comment number 17.

    yeah but you bite an artery thats gonna happen lol

    also i hate to keep saying bad things but the whole "im a vampire" thing to lucy didnt seem very realistic but my god Mr Turner can't that boy act?! He was brilliant this episode he really was so yay for Aidan :-) very sad bless him did feel for Mitchell just a shame the episode wasnt better as a whole :-( Aidan was definately the highlight of this one :-)

  • Comment number 18.

    nope donn;t trust you lloyd :P and a secret of kemp hmm i love the revelation of secrets :P
    i thinki have figured out my problem with series 2. i still really enjoy it but there was something different. I think with series one it was a more over arching story arch with everything joined in with the herrick thing, each of the characters had a big story of their own with went through all the episodes as well as the big story. for example annie had the figuring out how she died with owen thing, george had trying to be a werewolf and who he was, mitchell had the wholle blood problem all leading to the fight of vampires with the linking story v clear that they were all trying to figure out themselves and WHo they were.
    Series 2 its not as simple with all of the episodes almost having an individual storyline and less connection to the big storyline. less focus i think. for example the baby was nice and stuff but v just annie's individual story that is nice and cute as a side story. similar to hugh, who has now gone, and annies job first 2 episodes was hers but now :S ok from this is seems my problem is with annie and a lack of purpose for her actually.. but i do still stick to my point that there are more indivudual stories with less of an arch. i suppose the arch is kemp etc but this is suffering as the 3 don't know about the threat, which would bring them together and increase tension etc. hmm i don;t just gernaly in series one there was a purpose to everything, but i am missing the sense of purpose for everything in series 2.

    saying that howeverrrr, i do still really enjoy each indiviudal episode, but enjoy them alone and not as working together. Still love the show though and fascinated about where its going next, these werejust observations :P xx

  • Comment number 19.

    celticgrace - you're right, it is rather contradictory. If it's not an addiction, what's the bloodlust? How could Carl kill his lover in his sleep, if it's just a question of giving in to cowardice?

  • Comment number 20.

    sorry for that essay :S havent posted here in a while as been ill so i guess that was just making up for old times :P

  • Comment number 21.

    agree re Aidan - v moving - plus v funny (Caspar!) - he's esp good in the v emotional bits. He's much better this series - has toned it down eg in reaction shots - more subtle

    but George also terrific on Sam's doorstep! difficult to act lists - though you might expect G to do those well !

  • Comment number 22.

    one thing
    Told you priest

  • Comment number 23.

    Hi again alismooth - hope youre feeling better?

    Im still not sure about the arc? there's so much in it - so many twists - but underneath it's still about 3 in their mid-twenties getting on with life? I remember flatshares going through phases as members started to think how they might want to develop their lives - did they want love and children - now - later and what happens to those really important friendships? Add the supernatural to that and it's going to be v complicated?
    This ep was about love and family and each of them have a different take? But the overall CENSSA/evil plus combatting their individual natures had to keep moving plotwise - so I think it got too dense - -plus we didnt get much humour?
    It still gives lots to talk about - which cant be bad? Or maybe it's just me trying to avoid work!!

  • Comment number 24.

    What CenSSa fail to realize is that progress is too closely linked to evil that if such a gene existed it would utterly destroy the human race if removed

  • Comment number 25.

    Hope you're better now, Alismooth.

    And, yes, Ewan, #22, you were right.

    Maybe Kemp's wife was attacked by a vampire? If he'd been widowed, he could become a Catholic priest.

    George's beating up the language school boss may have caused the Tourettes to subside.

    Barbossa (previous blog page), yes, Apocalypse Now homage.

  • Comment number 26.

    Small request anyone who was at the Q&A yesterday can you tell what happened.

    thinking about what Lloyd said about Kemp I'm thinking secret order with something like Holy Brotherhood of in the title

  • Comment number 27.

    This may be a late request but we MUST have music by The Killers in series 3+!! The best band in the whole world!! Plz!! xx

  • Comment number 28.

    ewan - q+a yesterday - nothing new really - thing is if you've read the blog then they pretty much tell you everything they're allowed to on here - although Toby was a stand up for a while lol that was news to me :-P

    He wouldn't give a demo though :-( but Phil the new producer fella was there and he seems nice :-) very funny as were Toby and Sinead "toby how do you acheive the balance between the drama and the comedy?" Toby's answer "very well...next?" Lol! The interviewer fella "there you go theres your demo of the stand up" lol

  • Comment number 29.

    count spectacular - there was in series 1 wasnt there but then it was cut for the dvdvd :-( but on the original there was the killers - maybe there will be this series or series 3 too :-)

  • Comment number 30.

    I'm gonna move house more often - got to go home an hour early! Hope you guys are all ok and enjoyed the ep. Will tweet in a bit.
    Ok, this has probably all been said before, but best bits....
    "It's about the library books, isnt it?" when M got "arrested".
    Herrick - "Oh why is this happening to me...Munch Munch" Actually I loved all the Herrick bits.....Jason Watkins is just FAB.

    And, in the words of the Guardian when asked to pick an overall best bit - "There barely seems any point in choosing one of the high-minded thematic soliloquies? Everyone's just going to choose the five-minute montage of Aidan Turner ********, aren't they?"
    For me, a fabulous episode, one of the best (although mainly for its focus on Mitchell rather than actual storyline).

    Ok.....moving on.....
    Kemp? Hmmm, still think theres a lot more there than we know. More than Lloyd knows perhaps. Very strange. And Lucy? I actually kind of-ish like her. She's not /all/ bad, but can't say I'm especially keen. God I'm indecisive aren't I? Ok, apologies for random-ness of post, but my heads all jumbled up. On twitter now. x
    This journo has their priorities straight....

  • Comment number 31.

    Evening everyone!

    I'm thinking Lucy wont be killing Mitchell anytime soon but will still try and cure the warewolf 'curse'.

    Also think Annie will be targeted by Kemp for an exorcism. Was having a good look at the info board cennsa had (ep 4 i think) and it was very detailed!

  • Comment number 32.

    If Lucy was in a coma following her car crash, does this mean she's seen the men with ropes and sticks? Is that what sparked her interest in the supernatural? Maybe she knows the secret of the "worst thing in the world", too . . .

    I've been singing Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody To Love" to myself all day. What can be keeping that in my head, I wonder?

  • Comment number 33.

    DontGoThroughTheDoor: Evening....hope you're well!

    Think Lucy may order the killing of Mitchell and either rescue him or leave him to his fate...it won't end well...

    Agree with you regarding Kemp probably targeting Annie for exorcism...

    It was interesting when Lucy and Mitchell were in her kitchen and he was trying his best to explain that, because he had strong feelings for her, he believes she is "the one" who could, like Josie, help save him and help him beat his addiction....unfortunately, their was a bit of a cross-purposes thing there...I reckon Lucy was thinking he was meaning that because she was a medic that she could help him and that he was thinking of becoming part of a scientific programme, if there was one (because of course, he doesn't know if there is or isn't)...her feelings for him are extremely subtle to say the least... don't know whether she's going with this...

    And I NEED to know if next week's episode is going to explain more about what happened to Mitchell and Josie's relationship and why it didn't work...

    And what exactly caused Nina's abdominal scarring? We've not been told that yet...do we actually ever get to know?

    BH PROD: Do we get to know about her scars at all, and do we get to know about Mitchell and Josie's failed relationship please?...don't want to know why it failed, just whether we get to see more 60s action!xx

  • Comment number 34.

    Well Lloyd...you haven't really 'told us all' have you..only enticing us into the next episode !

    Hi everyone....ok...just to add my thoughts on eps 5..

    I enjoyed it...c'mon it was Mitchell episode what's not to enjoy...and amazingly ( for me) it wasn't the 5 minute montage of him being jiggy which I enjoyed the most...it was the scenes showing the reflective, vulnerable and tormented Mitchell which did it for me.

    So...I enjoyed eps 5...but I didn't love it and actually think it was the only 'weak' episode to date.

    Things I really liked....
    The acting from everybody was its normal superb self and eps from the beautiful one.
    Loved Jason Watkins ...every word a gem out of that man's mouth.
    The way the flashbacks linked to the 'present' storylines
    and..oh of course...the 5 minute montage with that close up shot of Mitchell sleeping..sooooo Hot!

    Things that didn't really work for me..
    Lack of continuity as mentioned by eagle. celticgrace, Dorina and others...
    completely irritated by CM lapsing into her Irish accent..well it was most of the time not just bits...I'm sure she's capable of using an English accent and if she isn't she shouldn't have been given the part.
    Josie met Mitchell first time in a bar I think when she looked at him and her legs 'turned to spaghetti'...ok...much more dramatic to have the meeting as they did in eps 5 but you wonder if the writer watched series 1
    George suddenly overcoming the Tourettes thing..how is that possible before releasing the wolf again?
    Mitchell's continual swings between being a supportive housemate, friend and then..being not...moves from eps to eps

    Mitchell seemingly not on the leat bit suspicious about Lucy even though she told him ..before they did the business..that she'd known he was a vampire all along and that she also knew he was trying to abstain...ok you could argue that the tormented state he's in eps after killing the Chief clouded his judgement but it's like he's a lamb to the slaughter.

    And yes the babies were wonderful but I'm asking myself where are all the different writers going with Annie? The characters connected to her just seem to last one episode and then leave her life....no doubt the whole thing is about her searching for a purpose but maybe a better purpose would be her getting involved with the Kemp, Prof, Lloyd characters in some way..maybe through Nina...and being the one who works out that the real demons to be fought are 'out there' and that the housemates have got to come togther to save themselves and those they care for.

    And George's relationship with Sam is just not ringing true...it's likely that that is what we are supposed to feel to reflect the fact that George..deep inside..knows it's not ringing true.

    Maybe all the above is the consequence of having so many different writers on the series..it can add to the drama, plots, characters etc but it can also lose something.

    Having said all of that..can't wait for eps 6!
    sorry about the length of this but haven't blogged for a while...I'll be shorter next time!

  • Comment number 35.

    hi anglo - I was thinking cross-purposes with Mitchell and Lucy as well - only different - Mitchell thinking about love - ("someone to do it for"??) and Lucy was thinking religion - she and god would save him??

    and Im thinking she will have a religious reaction to this - or Kemp will think she is totally compromised and take action - but the new trailer does show her giving the go-ahead - to what!

  • Comment number 36.

    Brown - yes CM's accent annoyed me too, either be natural & Irish or stick to RP!

  • Comment number 37.

    Brown its rare I say this to anyone but I absolutely agree with everything in your post - absolutely - the good and the bad - well said!

  • Comment number 38.

    Brown, Celticgrace: Hello lovelies...will catch up with you, Brown, on Twitter later...know you're busy!

    Celtic: Exactly what I meant about the Lucy/Mitchell explanation! You put it better than I did lol..she's really up to something...think 6, 7 & 8 are going to be a blast...well, I hope there's lots of action and I'm sure there will be!

    Brown: Agree about Annie and George...I think they're all immersing themselves in emotion right now...George is on rebound from Nina and kidding himself he's fine and he can find someone else, Mitchell is desperate to dry out and will do anything he can do achieve it even going with a totally unsuitable woman (his sixth sense obviously was not functioning there...was this supposed to be because he was over-emotional, for him anyway?), and Annie was being pensive about babies and not being able to have a family but at least wasn't as tense as the guys were...is all this to show us what emotions can make us do, how they can cloud judgement, or to let us see how much difference love can make to someone...it made a difference to Mitchell in 60s, yet his and Josie's relationship still didn't work...

    I'm impatient to find out why!!!!

  • Comment number 39.

    Dont get me wrong this guy hes a good writer but style wise just too too different :-S

    And yep Mitchell suddenly accepting that Lucy knew not only about the existence of vampires, but that he was one?! Yeah right...

    And George suddenly getting over his anger and tourettes before there'd been another full moon? Again yeah right...

    But I do love it and I hate having bad stuff to say about it so gonna shut up now lol its finally on virgin on demand so about to watch it for the second time. Lets hpoe I think differently this time :-)

  • Comment number 40.

    brown and anglo - agree with you completely

    and also cant wait for ep6

  • Comment number 41.

    Mitchell does seem to accept Lucy knew v easily - but this is another world isnt it? where you can turn up and say "Im a vampire" and have it understood ? so normal rules dont apply?

    but agree he's desperate and emotional - poor lamb

    poor murdering lamb!

  • Comment number 42.

    celticgrace - but its not supposed to be! Its supposed to be about being human - its meant to be our world it was stupid! :-S

  • Comment number 43.

    I thought AT's acting was outstanding in Lucy's kitchen when she was cleaning him up. The crying & all.
    RT, fab as always....not so much focus on him but he still managed a few amusing lines. Lenora was her usual funny self, especially with the baby. Aww.
    When she was sitting with "Tim" & Mitchell on the sofa.....my god, they'd make a good little family bless them!
    60's M made me giggle, that hair! Him & Herrick, loved them!

  • Comment number 44.

    eagle - yeh but it's a "real" human world where vampires exist?! cant be totally normal?
    but yes he's being dumb!

  • Comment number 45.

    Celticgrace, Eagle: Mitchell's desperation has seemingly taken over his judgement...he's gone from cool, detached-ish vampire who seems to be in control, to chasing after an unsuitable woman who can't or won't help him, probably...not only is he desperate beyond measure to solve his addiction issues, he is over-keen for love...love certainly is blind..it's totally clouded his thoughts and has affected his friendships with Annie and George who, in their own ways, have been acting in a similar fashion...everyone is getting very tangled up with their own situations in this episode..

  • Comment number 46.

    Celticgrace, Eagle: In addition to which he's just bumped off the Chief Constable who now will not finish his extension and has to control a bunch of similarly addicted vampires who are going cold turkey and are going to be difficult to control....no wonder he's emotional.. :D xx

  • Comment number 47.

    If he's looking for unsuitable women, I'll volunteer?!
    But yes anglo, totally agree. If he were human it would be like being blinded by love and love alone, but as he's not its a combination of that and his blood-lust, which is driving him insane (poor lamb), as he said about remembering all the people he'd killed when he was "thirsty"...

  • Comment number 48.

    Annie's acquaintances all seem to be transient and incidental which may be to demonstrate the 'lost soul' aspect of being a ghost, but those ghosts featured all display feelings of love, anger etc. which, if eternally unfulfilled, make being a ghost harsh and purposeless.

    Presumably, Annie now can't go through the door as what awaits her is worse than remaining as a ghost.

    If Josie didn't want to be a vampire and Mitchell didn't want to make her a vampire, then the relationship was doomed as she would age and die and he'd continue as a twenty-something, well, unless someone staked him.

  • Comment number 49.

    celticgrace but the idea is that its our world hence its bristol not imaginary telly land you know? ok torchwood for example - torchwood is supposed to be our world if aliens exist they may, they may not its just assuming they do like being human is assuming the existence of supernaturals in our world. in torchwood they dont tell some random woman "hey guess what aliens exist" and they just turn round and go "oh ok then" they get into arguements they think they're mental and they need physical proof and even then they try and make rational excuses just like they always have done in being human and mitchell has explained that about humans being able to rationalise the unrational but now suddenly hes just ok with the fact that a girl goes "ok then" when he tells her? and then she admits she "knew" oh come on it was ridiculous :-S

    re watching still but i have to say things are annoying me even more this time round - im watching it with my nan and even shes said it feels extremely patronising :-S so its not just me lol

    loving herrick though - not necessarily the way he was written :-( but jasons acting is brilliant. Just wishing Toby would've written Herricks episode - done him a bit more justice :-(

  • Comment number 50.

    Mustardseed: Evening....

    Your Josie/Mitchell theory works...I'd still like to see it on TV though! hehe...any excuse for more of Mitchell but he did rack the acting up a notch yesterday, more subtle, more vulnerable...and Lucy thinks he's a monster? Woman's not in her right mind...

  • Comment number 51.

    I think this blog and its posts are some of the most interesting ones I've read since BH2 began..so if nothing else the writer of episode 5 has got all of us happy about somethings, puzzled by some things and maybe a little agitated by somethings.

    I'm leaning more to brown's and eagles' thoughts on the 'what worked well and what didn't' front. I agree that the writer probably wanted us to think that Mitchell was in such a distressed state by the time he got to Lucy's, and by that time was so 'needy' that he lost the ability to actually think about what she was saying. I've no doubt that in either eps 6 or 7 he will suss her out..and I'm wondering now if the 'naked and covered in blood' scene which Aidan referred to will be him in bed with Lucy...having killed her.

    Anglo:...I'd be surprised if they show any more scenes with 60s Josie...it's not really important for the storyline to show how they split...so, although we might want to know...don't think they're going to show!

  • Comment number 52.

    Dorina - it says that next week Lucys reaction to sleeping with mitchell has some violent consequences :-S and also Amy Manson aka Daisy said that she had a "naked and covered in blood" scene too so I still reckon hes gonna get it on with her - which I'd much prefer - I love her character - her and Nina are two of my favourites and they've hardly been in it so looking forward to getting them back :-D

    My nans verdict was she could see what I meant actually and agrees it was quite annoying but approves of naked Mitchell and the baby scenes and assumes that they hoped people would've forgotten about series 1 and they hope all viewers are like her and have forgotten the start of a film by the end of it lol bless her

  • Comment number 53.

    Hi Anglo, desiring more Mitchell action is, ahem, fine, as long as you don't suddenly announce that you're finding the ghastly white drawers strangely attractive. However, I agree with Dorina that any further Josie details won't really aid the storyline.

    S2 does seem rather chaotic, disjointed and flawed, with less of the 'everyday' aspect but the humour is still there.

    And Jason Watkins is just the best villain - so ostensibly unprepossessing and insignificant and yet so deranged and evil,

  • Comment number 54.

    eagle:...mmm oh so Daisy is getting down and dirty as well? Well..can't see that being with anyone else except Mitchell..bit worrying though if it is the two of them...who does the blood belong to!!!!

    BHProduction...hello there Mr P and all...if you've been reading the posts about episode 5 I have a question for you to put to Toby ..what is the thinking about having so many different writers on the one series.?

  • Comment number 55.

    exactly - i did wonder if it might just be each others - a bit of a lauren situation but dunno...something to look forward to though im sure lol

  • Comment number 56.

    hello everyone

    just a quick post tonight i cant stop for long

    i agree with most of what youve said on here today but i cant read it all though

    can anyone give me a quick run down on what your on about tonight and i can stay for 10 mins ish

  • Comment number 57.

    sorry folks got to go happy blogging

  • Comment number 58.

    I found it interesting thinking about it today, the last person Mitchell killed and drank from before this was actually Josie, older Josie in episode 6 last year.

    Not sure if this kill will bring back his addiction because that time didn't, but he was recovering lost blood and she was a willing victim so that might have changed things. :S

    I noticed how her whole story of how they met (cigarettes and wobbly knees) was retconned out by the prequel. Understandably so as its a much better story.

  • Comment number 59.

    Mitchell's got one big problem. (Apart from the vampirism, obviously.) He's charismatic, masterful, persuasive and a man of action, but underneath that all, he's got really, really BAD judgement, and that keeps causing him problems as series 1 and 2 both demonstrate.

    Still, it makes great television!

  • Comment number 60.

    Lloyd.....still not made up my mind about his little posts!
    Dorina (7) I wondered where George's severe aggression & tourettes had gone last night? Also no follow up to the head of the language school he beat up?
    No time to read all blogs, so forgive if I repeat anything already mentioned.
    I felt Ep 5 was a bit back & forth & was a bit confused (I should point out that I am easily confused!). Is Cortez dead or has Mitchell made him a vampire?
    Also, I thought it wasn't very realistic that Mictahell wasn't freaked out that Lucy new he was a vampire - surely that's a big clue that soemthing isn't right.
    Loved the ghost baby bit & George still has some wicked comedy moments.
    Thanks BH production for the "behind the scenes Baby Day" How cute they all were about them.

  • Comment number 61.

    Oh & I nearly forgot......I miss Nina!

    I miss Nina too plus still hoping for Daisy Nina scene "I know that perfume"

    Re: George's tourettes and anger going away, I think his little outburst ie nealry killing his boss probably gave the wolf his go for this month.

    And the consequences? He mentioned how he couldn't hold down a job at the language school so I presumje his boss fired him straight away, making some excuse obviously or George would have been arrested.

    But I guess that makes him unemployed, wonder if he will go back to the hospital? Or just stay jobless til the end of the series, can't say he was getting a lot of screentime at the hospital, now Nina is no longer there.

    deadly furniture yeah i think you're right - he got his anger out didnt he - that makes sense :-)

  • Comment number 65.

    Hope this doesn't get people singing but I was stuck tormenting my cats all day with "Don't You Want Somebody To Love?" and it may (I say may) give a clue to Mitchell's state of mind.

    I looked up the ltrics, (as if I'm going to torment my cats I want to do it properly) and the First part goes

    "When the truth is found to be lies
    And all the joy within you dies"

    and later on....

    "When the garden flowers baby are dead yes
    And your mind is full of red"

    This is why,Ross and the guys do such a good job chosing the music.

    AND Lloyd... They're nutcases and their experiments are flawed... Get ther heck out of Dodge...

    PS Miss Nina too...

  • Comment number 66.

    Missing Nina too, we didn't even get a glimpse of her yesterday :( It feels wierd now that we thought the three would become four in the house after episode 1. :(

    I wonder what CenSSA actually do to Nina for the times other than full moon? Is she just locked up somewhere with only Lloyd for company :D That would be a nightmare.

  • Comment number 67.

    Things I forgot to say - yay we now know why Russell/Lenora were quoting la roux (is that how you spell it? Dunno not really a fan lol sorry if its wrong) in that "lenoras back" blog video :-P

    and also...how come annie's biologically linked to a toaster? perhaps the kettle lol but a toaster?

  • Comment number 68.

    Yes good point Deadly Furniture - what does Nina do for the rest of the time? maybe next full moon, Nina & George will find each other and live happily ever after in their own spin off - George & Nina! No not George & Mildred - oh dear, am showing my age now! And maybe the spin off could stay in Bristol, because I am very hacked off that BH is off to Cardiff. They already have Torchwood - isn't that enough? Ok so I am ranting a bit now - oops!

  • Comment number 69.

    Question from last nights episode - Mitchell killing the police inspector - Did he ACTUALLY feed?

    What makes me think he didn't:

    1. As mentioned earlier on the blog, when the camera showed the cops dying gasps there was a LOT of blood there (you could see it pumping out of him).
    2. When Carl killed his boyfriend in episode 2 Lucy mentioned the body being completely drained and there being very little blood at the scene.
    3. Mitchell looked terrified after he'd killed him with none of the even temporary happiness the others associate with blood. Surely an addict of anything even if trying to stay on the wagon will get some release/enjoyment out of a relapse even if very temporary.

    What makes me think he might have:

    1. He told Lucy "One more chance". Did he mean feeding or just killing? I think theres a difference as the killing is something he can better control.
    2. A friend of mine pointed out it would be very difficult to rip someones jugular out without ingesting SOME blood.
    3. Could Mitchell have standed to be around so much blood without being tempted to feed? But then maybe thats why he ran so fast?

    What does everyone think - Did he feed, feed just a little, or not at all?

  • Comment number 70.

    hey guys.... just wondered what everyone's thoughts are about whats going to happen to nina? I know im proper sad, but im reali worried.... lol!! haha! does anyone reckon she wil be in series 3? i jolly well hope so!!!

  • Comment number 71.

    Lol yes! A George and Nina spin off! They can have a couple of kids move the mother in law next door and get a golden retreiver then Toby can do his sitcom idea and use the cracking, not at all cheesy, "Mild thing" title lol! (Yep Toby that's SO gonna haunt you...no pun intended lol)

  • Comment number 72.

    Romfort - totally agree with you - he didnt feed - or at least not properly there was sooooooo much blood there and they really focussed on it so I guess that was for that reason - to show that he hadn't drank it - and yeah I guess that was one of the reason he's legged it so quick!

    and lurve_BH - I think she'll be just fine and be in series 3 living it up in cardiff...just an incling :-)

  • Comment number 73.

    I hope he didn't feed anyway as else he's back where he started (although tearing someones throat out isn't a particular good thing to do either I suppose, even if they weren't very nice!)

  • Comment number 74.

    Hmm, I suppose that makes sense, Mitchell not drinking the blood, for the reasons Romfort said. It will be an interesting scne when we see it, Mitchell waking up and maybe realising that Lucy knew he was a vampire. How could this be? :o dun dun daaar :D

    Hmm, and Lloyd saying we find out somethign about Kemp soon? On the cast list we have: Young Kemp. Hmm. I am thinking, as other people have suggested in the past that Kemp has had some encounter with the supernatural. A vampire attack maybe? On his family? Something that would really turn him to believe they were the embodiment of the devil.

  • Comment number 75.

    "And as George's relationship with Nina becomes more serious, she has an important question for him.

    Lenora Crichlow stars as Annie, Lyndsey Marshal as Lucy, Aidan Turner as Mitchell, Russell Tovey as George and Sinead Keenan as Nina"

    I read that a bit back and thought great so George is back with Nina by episode 6 :-) but I think they have it wrong :-( think they mean Sam as a question for him :-( but at least Nina's in it :-) yay and Lloyds in it :-)

  • Comment number 76.

    Well she doesnt come back this episode :-( well she might be in it - hope she is even if it's just with Kemp and Lucy!

    Oh and episode 7 sounds Aweeeeeeeeesome! Lol and I think we know who the blood belongs too :-P should be erm...interesting :-D

    Well I've got a day off and am at a lose end enough to destroy the logic of CenSSA's plan to remove the evil gene from humanities genetic makeup.

    so I decided to work out what is the most Evil 'trait' of humanity what has caused the most suffering?
    greed, hate, envy, fear or even rage? No
    the answer is certainty. think about it good people can do terrible things if certain that their cause is just.
    Religion in a few simple steps
    1 certain there is a god
    2. certain you know how to worship that god
    3. certain you know other people are doing it wrong
    4. certain they should be corrected
    5. Spanish inquisition

    now people also will give into other traits because they are certain they are right and justified in doing so.

    so certainty is the evil trait remove it what are we left without
    no more certainty on the fact helping people is a good thing
    doctors no longer certain about how to heal patients.

    without the evil good has no strength and we all fall.

  • Comment number 79.

    Oh Loydy boy...when you are in a hole etc...

    I am a bit confused by all this 'evil gene' stuff, our three and probably all vampires and werewolves are how they are because of something that was done to them rather that being born with an evil gene. And even if they are evil now (because of their condition) it may not be that they were born like it......did that make any sense at all...

  • Comment number 80.

    something like that I always saw werewolves as something being released but back to Annie talking to Nina We're talking magic and curses here
    I can't wait to see if ep 7 heralds her return

  • Comment number 81.

    morning ewan...(78). Very profound for a Tuesday morning....go to work, you have got too much time on you hands.

    I think you are right...but would say certainty, with a failure to listen or be swayed, that's the problem

  • Comment number 82.

    profound or profane and I don't want to fall to the house rules again

  • Comment number 83.

    but to follow up true certainty is when arguments don't work on you for example I certainly will not hit a child I can be tempted to if they attack my shins for no reason in a queue people could argue that a flick round their ear would be a good thing but in the end I would limp it out or change queues

  • Comment number 84.

    Vampfan- maybe they are thinking that their genes change... like now George has wolf genes, I mean he changes into a wolf but also has his heightened scenes so must retain some of the wolf genes. And Vampires are not the same as when they were human, But not sure that counts as evil genes and Mitchell is most definetely not evil (sexy hot and luuuurvely... but not evil) but maybe they are right in that people like Herrick are born evil and through this searching for the evil gene they happened to stumble upon the supernaturals, who knows?

  • Comment number 85.

    Morning sweet...in a way you have said what I was trying to say..(knew it was coming out wrong)...They are looking for an evil gene and they seem to be looking at people who have turned evil because of circumstances rather than having been born evil. I thought the whole point of genetics..it's what you are born with...a bit like me being drop-dead gorgeous...Hehe.

    Oh hell what do I know, I'm much more expert on your description of Mitchell

  • Comment number 86.

    I agree that an 'evil gene' doesn't work well as an explaination for Vampires or Werewolves. How about an evil virus (or rather a werewolf virus and a vampire virus)?

    A Vampire virus rewrites the genetic code of every cell of a recently dead human bringing them back to life in a modified form.

    The werewolf virus would insert a whole load of extra code that kicks in to action at the full moon, but unlike the vampire one only infects the living.

    Ghosts don't have genes, they don't have cells to keep them in so all of this gene or virus stuff utterly falls apart for them.

    On the Lloyd front, still trying the ends justify the means line isn't he? Not buying it buddy, we see far too much of that in real life and it just doesn't cut it as an excuse.

  • Comment number 87.

    Afternoon folks!

    Totally agree about the DNA theory...you should get beinghumanfan onto this she's good at all things scientific...they're using the excuse that supernaturals are evil whilst completely ignoring psychopaths and similar humans...perhaps someone should tell Lloyd..

    Romfort, Eagle: Don't think Mitchell fed either, not purposely, just with the blood that ended up on his fangs/teeth...he rang like hell to get away from the scene and the blood...straight into the flat of someone who would prefer him dead...but only after she's had her wicked way with him...how hypocritical can she get? lol.. Not only does she have the religious mania thing going on as an excuse to unpleasant things to people, but then has sex outside of marriage to a vampire (whom she's plotting against)...whilst killing him (er, i thought murder of any sort was against all religious values, no matter who or what it was?)..

    VF: Hello there...how are you?

    Keep having visions since Sunday night....of a certain being in tighty-whities and strange hair covered in fake blood...now, why would that be Vampy? You're an expert on this sort of thing...please explain to me...I'm very confused...

  • Comment number 88.

    anglo....whities and that hair....twas a nightmare sweetie not a dream....you well?

  • Comment number 89.

    VF: Yes I'm fine now thanks...the whities and hair (the brushed version, not the messy frizzy one) have grown (not literally) on me...prefer the usual Mitchell look but that one has...something about it....take it you enjoyed Sunday evening from about 9pm then? hehe

  • Comment number 90.

    Not sure about the hair but he looked all cute in his 'Blues Brothers Suit'....but then the looking good in a bin bag thing applies

  • Comment number 91.

    I think some ghosts wouldn't work on the 'evil gene' idea as they arent always evil, just some have evil things done to them.

  • Comment number 92.

    VF: The suit looks very good indeed...although its what's inside it that makes it so...so....

    must go for a lie down..

  • Comment number 93.

    VF: Oh, and Vampy...am still awaiting an explanation as to why the white things and hair and vampire stuff makes me come over all unnecessary...

  • Comment number 94.

    ooh, it looks like we'll be seeing some of kemps past this week. "young kemp" is credited for next episode. interesting :)

  • Comment number 95.

    Kate: Afternoon....wonder who will play young Kemp? Is there a cast list somewhere *goes to check*

  • Comment number 96.

    Fresh off BBC site...Matt Barber is young Kemp...can't think what he's been in but I've seen him before...

  • Comment number 97.

    sorry anglo...didn't mean to abandon you in mid drool...anyway (93)...cos you lurve him....off to look at Matt Barber

  • Comment number 98.

    Yay! My BH books arrived today! Started reading the first one but it says Annie has bare-feet. Think it was asked on a previous blog post, but is there a particular reason for this, or is it the same as changing her clothes depending on emotions?
    Loved the episode - AT's acting was fantastic, but I miss Nina too.
    I still don't know whether to trust Lloyd or not - if Kemp finds out the kind of information he's been giving out, to say he won't be a happy bunny would be an understatement! Interesting though about Lucy and the coma...
