At certain times in the scriptwriting process even legendary Being Human creator Toby Whithouse is allowed the odd rewrite. Especially when, for example, the original intro for episode seven is way too long, way too expensive and just generally impossible to make. I mean, that's just an example... Oh, no, wait, that actually happened.

Here's Toby to explain why this original piece of script was changed...

"What you have here is the first draft of the pre-titles for episode 7. It fills in some of the background regarding the creation of the facility, Kemp and Lucy's partnership and how Tully got to write the message for George.

I was fairly pleased with it, but it never made it past the first draft, as not only did it push the script MASSIVELY over-length, also it would devour a huge chunk of the (already stretched to the limit and beyond) schedule. Not to mention that it was staggeringly expensive. And ultimately not essential for the narrative.

So, yes, aside from ALL OF THOSE THINGS it was perfect.

As you know, in the end I wrote a little scene for Daisy and Ivan which I think worked much better, as it gave some context to their relationship which was essential for Daisy's motivation in the episode proper.

But I hung onto this because I thought you might like to have a gander at it. You see. I'm always thinking of new ways to show off... I mean to keep you happy."

    hello there will see you later after work

    I think it is a shame that some of this was not put in, it is nice to have a bit more background on the characters, to help to understand their motives etc. A shame that the budget cannot always stretch to show us more & of course, this is all the more reason to call for longer episodes!

  • Comment number 3.

    & good old Tully trying to protect George! (page 11)

    Trust you Ewan, I could have had the first comment! lol

  • Comment number 4.

    Tully's almost made me cry. I could see him saying those words, cuddling Amy, a sad look in his eyes and the strenght and responsability he takes on George.

    It' s such a pity you haven't been able to put this, although I must admit even Ivan&Daisy'sfashback was very mving, very poetic, as was everything relating to Ivan.

    Thank you for sharing this Mr Toby..maybe you could put some hints to this in series 3..I loved Tully.

  • Comment number 5.

    Darn it I can't watch it at work I won't be able to see it util around 11 tonight lol. Oh well. Speak later folk.

  • Comment number 6.

    Oooh lovely idea that it counts down through the moons we have seen and shows us what's happening at the facility while we've been watching series 1. I understand how Lucy got involved now if she saw what a pitiful character Craig was. Poor Craig and Amy, there story is so sad. Their families caged them up. And Tully was so kind to her. Liked the 'I'll tell you the day after tomorrow' line. that's the Tully we know and love.
    interesting this idea of 'did she/he/you actually use that word' runs through the whole script. Mitchell and 'dangerous' in the pilot, Kemp and 'friends' in the last episode. 'vampire' in this script.
    this is really interesting, thanks BHP for showing it to us. I can imagine ow this would have looked on screen and it's really added to the story for me.

  • Comment number 7.

    fascinating read thank you

    need to read again but it was interesting to see more of the link back to Tully - I found him really creepy but it would have been good to have him back - another full circle.

    It showed Lucy in a much more sinister light - her complicity in the deaths - she says it more than once in the final version esp ep8 - but this really shows how guilty she is. Which oddly makes Mitchell's ready forgiveness harder to take - but that's probably a sign of our investment in his character that we can more easily forgive his sins!

    Not clear why it was so expensive? except just a lot more settings to put together? and more actors? I was expecting something very special effects from the intro - but I guess another transformation scene is costly.
    Has a lot more double flashbacks? ie includes lots of other scenes from the series.
    The final scene with Ivan and Daisy was so good - would have been a shame to lose that - but this has some lovely stuff too. Interesting in light of blog discussion on programe length - dont want to start that again - it got a bit tetchy lol.. - but would be interested in Toby's views? He seems to want more room - but is it just budget? would it lose tension?
    More like this please!!!

  • Comment number 8.

    This reminds me - when I mentioned much earlier on blog about reading S1ep1 script -someone asked for link - go to BBC writers' room.

  • Comment number 9.

    7. i agree celticgrace, although I thought it did show why Lucy got involved it also showed how willing she was to keep going even though it was killing people. More 'mad scientist' than we thought originally. She really was an unforgivable character wasn't she? Bless Mitchell for trying. But, like he said, she had a choice.
    I just watched the pilot again and noticed that 'Herrick' (so glad they re cast him BTW, the other guy was good and all but Jason Watkins gives the character real charisma and charm) made the comment that they were 'all made by the lamb', so Mitchell is almost quoting herrick in his talk with Lucy at the facility.

  • Comment number 10.

    this extra look at Kemp and Lucy's relationship doesnt answer one thing that's been bugging me - why add in the apparently pervy stuff? - eg Kemp drooling over a mug with Lucy's name on it? - if it did mean what it looked like?

    Cant see what it added - we already had lots of motivation for Kemp in his religion and family tragedy? And it confused for me the much more interesting drive when he went from watching Mitchell and Lucy straight to pushing Annie through the door... ie that he wanted Mitchell to lose something he loved and finally recognised their friendship was real?

    Is Toby still taking more questions lol? here's hoping ...

  • Comment number 11.

    V interesting, thanks for letting us read it! Nice to see an explaination of how Tully could write a warning message and why CenSSA were looking for 'our 3'.

    (7) agree it shows Lucy to be much more guilty and much more cold hearted than we thought.

    Ginger-red - you had the first REAL comment.

  • Comment number 12.

    10, I know what you mean about Kemp and Lucy but I thought it was the fact that Mitchell said 'we had sex' and then said ;go'd a bit of a b*****d' which made Kemp Push Annie through the door bc Mitchell had sullied the things Kemp held dear; Lucy and god.
    I also wondered if the Kemp lipstick mug thing and the Lloyd tissue thing were to give a grimy, less religious element to their operation? it wasn't all zealous and noble?

  • Comment number 13.

    That script would have been a fantastic beinginning! Such a shame you could't afford to do it!

    Perhaps it could be included somewhere in S3 E1?

  • Comment number 14.

    Thanks for this, Toby and BHP. It's tied up a few loose ends and answered some of the questions the bloggers have been examining since Sunday.

    I was away over the weekend and am still - three days later - catching up on the mighty ocean of blog which the last episode has generated.

    Now I must wait patiently until the autumn and series 3 for other loose ends and cliffhangers to be revealed. Patiently? Maybe not.

  • Comment number 15.

    @Frostmaiden - Lord Toby might decide to answer more questions :-)

  • Comment number 16.

    12 - agree that argument and Kemps's reaction were terrifically complex! I was thinking about what Kemp said to Mitchell in the corridor - about him now feeling what it was to lose someone? and the many references in the ep to the "friendship" between the 3 - Kemp's comtemptuous dismissals of those bonds chimed beautifully with the various moments of friendship between the 3/4, which culminated in them saving each other.
    I thought he already knew about Lucy having sex with Mitchell? Didnt she confess all? She was quite dismissive of that in the room - just "hurt his feelings"?
    And not sure Kemp would have been surprised at a vampire speaking ill of his deity!

  • Comment number 17.

    16. I don't think Kemp did know about the sex. Lucy confessed to being too weak to kill Michell that's all (if I remember correctly)

  • Comment number 18.

    16 no i didn't think it was a revelation to him (pardon the pun) the sex or the blasphemy i think it was HEARING Mitchell say it. and how Lucy was so dismissive of it, it told Kemp that she wasn't just seduced, she didn't care. A cold scientist who had to get to her subject more than a fallen woman.

  • Comment number 19.

    BHP thank you! Toby - ur amazing! I totally loved it and would have love, loved, loved to have seen it!! The whole Tully thing - amazing... and it was great to know how he come about to know it all, and the fact he was stil trying to protect George even before writing that message on the wall. I also really enjoyed seeing the flashbacks of scenes from last series, so we could put a time and date to it and it merged all the characters together. Poor Amy and Craig... aww bless them... it was so nice to have a fuller back story about all of it I think. I think it was an important bit to read when Kemnp first found out about werewolves, to read how repulsed he was... Have to admit, even though it wasn't acted or anything, in my minds eye, I could really see it playing out....

    You guys are the best :) xxxxx

  • Comment number 20.

    Aaw that was sad... Tully was brilliant.
    Now we get to understand some of the motives of why they are doing all of it.
    thanks for the script!!

  • Comment number 21.

    We didnt see a specific confession - just the start of her saying how she'd failed/sinned? - I assumed she had confessed all? - their relationship seemed like that?
    Kemp - in another of his dismissals of the M/G/A "friendship" - (in the Trevor's last scene!) does refer to Mitchell having probably "seduced" George as well - something like that?

  • Comment number 22.

    18 - another take I hadnt thought of crow! Kemp thinking she was cold and going into a rage!

    but was she really cold?? Lucy talking to George blatantly admits to using Mitchell - pretty cold that - but then a moment later to loving him? I was left in the end of the ep not sure if she loved him or not - (her final "Mitchell" was touching) - which is fine - life is complex and untidy lol ..

  • Comment number 23.

    21. yes he does. and i thought that's why, when Lucy obviously is heartless about the sex, he just flips. or that's whatIi thought?

  • Comment number 24.

    22. i think she wanted to be one thing and felt another thing too. but i don't know which was which. the 'in love' or the 'scientist'.

  • Comment number 25.

    maybe she liked the thought of being in love, more than actually being in love... life is complex after all

  • Comment number 26.

    that final scene in the corridor between Mitchell and Kemp was certainly riveting, full of emotions - Mitchell absolutely ferocious and crazed - and Kemp like a big insect -his face looming - not afraid of the vampire at all - his face and movements made me think of the creature in Alien! - fantastic acting from both of them.

  • Comment number 27.

    8 - CG, thanks for that, am having a slow read through now :)

  • Comment number 28.

    26 the rage from both sides. Kemp, even though just human certainly held his ground. and the 'meet your maker' comment hit home with Mitchell didn't it?

  • Comment number 29.

    lurve-BH - sorry I forgot it was you - and there are a lot of posts to go back through!

    25 - agree re the complexity! dont often get that in drama on TV - too often simplistic. I was thinking she started by seeing him as an evil monster and was just going to use him - but was then surprised by love? she just fell for him without meaning to.. and who wouldnt?

  • Comment number 30.

    29 and who wouldn't. well yeah! :) we were shouting 'don't kill him, ***him again!!'

  • Comment number 31.

    I love reading this sort of thing, it's very insightful to how the creative minds are working on BH, and also explains little bits that we otherwise pieced together ourselves. What it did explain in particular was how Tully knew none of the other werewolves survived.

    My questions though, if I can ask them...
    What's happened to Lloyd? and what was that thing about Kemp with Lucy's brush and mug? Did he kill her in the end because she went hunting for Mitchell and he just flipped because he had a thing for her? And finally, Lucy didn't go through the door.... does that mean she's going to be in series 3 as a ghost? (although I predict the answer to that will be "wait and see!").

  • Comment number 32.

    29 - now, i know what these blogs are like - im just happy u remembered to let me know where it was!! and i agree, i think she was determined to win over hi trust, spend time with him and get him to open up, but she forgot that she is only human and when u forge relationships like that, sometimes boundaries get blurred. i dont think it was true love, but she definitely felt something for him......

  • Comment number 33.

    30 - haha that made me chuckle!!

  • Comment number 34.

    28 - thoughts of retribution and redemption difficult when youre a vampire and expect to live for ever? dont really need to worry about meeting your maker? ie God (Sorry dont buy that as - for Mitchell - a possible reference to Herrick!)

    shows how hard it is for Mitchell to choose to be moral - he neednt fear Hell? he just wants to live a moral life for its own sake? a real Humanist! So "are you ready to meet your maker" for him - is facing himself - and what he has done??

  • Comment number 35.

    Hi guys! I know I said i wouldn't be there today, but it turns out I don't have work to do for the moment so I decided to join the discussion here.

    First, CROW I'm glad you appreciated Vermillion Lies' music! makes me happy! =) [I'm re-writing this in case you didn't happen to read it in the last blog]

    The Kemp/Lucy/Mitchell thing. - I think she didn't tell him everything. When he speaks of Mitchell "seducing" George as well, it seems to me like he is talking about the Devil's corrupting power, the Tempter, the Deceiver. And I think it upset him when he heard about them having had sex (boy his face was terrifying at that point!)because it meant Mitchell aka Satan (or one of his minions - Demon living in a dead body, wearing it as clothes..) took not only Lucy from him, but tempting her, he took her from the right path and from God.
    Add to this Mitchell disrespectful remark about God and we're done. His blasphemy had took too much from him, from Kemp's point of view, I mean.
    And therefore the revenge by taking away the people he loved from Mitchell, it always seemed to me like a very personal thing between Kemp and Mitchell, everything done to revenge a personal loss. As Paul Ryhs said, "very minute and pathetic".

  • Comment number 36.

    I wish we had got to see Tully, I also love the "I'll tell you the day after tomorrow" bit. He knows that he will probably not get out of there and he makes them pay for it. Good old Tully, he really learnt form meeting George.

    I also liked seeing all the full moons again (I had a little count back on here the other night) Interesting how CenSSA were up to all this while we were still seeing off Herrick, though we knew that anyway.

    Shame this wasn't at least filmed and left for the DVD but I suppose it made the Tully note more unexpected and I did love the Daisy and Ivan scene.

  • Comment number 37.

    35 indil - I think we're broadly agreeing - I just loved the friendship theme so much

    now would you like to translate your post into Italian please - as that's what I should be doing right now - my Italian homework!!

  • Comment number 38.

    Oh, that was brilliant. Damned budget! That would have been so bloody marvelous!

  • Comment number 39.

    INDIL thank you for the recommendation, i love them. I too am an exponent of the Shiny and I have my shimmery dress all ready to bust a move!
    and GR, Daisy in a bath of beans..... maybe minus the beans eh? in glitter? in champagne? I'm there :)
    ahem. Yes I am going to watch series 1 thinking about what CENSSA are doing all the time now. brilliant. I love that the stories overlap. Celticgrace I hadn't thought of Mitchell's maker in that way. wow that's deep. If I really try to think the way he would then I am amazed he bothers with us at all. I'm not sure I would if I'd seen all he's seen.

  • Comment number 40.

    37. Celtic, oh really?that's nice. So you might be able to track all my slips from Italian grammar into English! If you need any help ask me, really. or you can ask me on twitter if you don't want to turn this blog into an Italian lesson.
    you find me as indilfo.

  • Comment number 41.

    Celtic indilflo - sorry I mistyped it before.
    well.. all you from the blog can find me! XD

  • Comment number 42.

    yjat was really good, its such a shame that it werent included. :(

  • Comment number 43.


  • Comment number 44.

    Ah can't read it coz of my **** -I mean bad computer (trying to keep the mods happy) but look forward to checking it out tomorrow =]

  • Comment number 45.

    39. Crow.. so, you're telling me that it was Daisy who thaught Dita von Teese all that stuff!?

  • Comment number 46.

    And this is why I love behind the scenes. I was timing it in my head, and it would have been reeeeeeeeeeeeally long, but I am so glad I got to read it. Everything tying together in neat little knots. Like a dreamcatcher - you start with a load of strings, and they tie together and tie together, always getting closer to the centre. :)

  • Comment number 47.

    45 indil, don't you think that Daisy would have invented that stuff id she'd had chance? red glitter obviously!! :) Makes it even better.

  • Comment number 48.

    oops that should have been *if*

  • Comment number 49.

    Kemp's a scary looking guy, if i saw him in the street preaching, i think i'd run away.... :S
    (im sure the actor a cool dude tho ;) )
    my fav line (random point) was when Mitchell was saying about everybody being God's children " what about all His rage, his spite, his indifference, his cruelty." :D i don't think ill ever forget that quote for RS. ;)

  • Comment number 50.

    Aww, they should have kept it like this, it was great
    Thanks for sharing Toby (you spoil us) :D

  • Comment number 51.

    47. well I think it was invented way before! That's why a couple of blogs ago I suggested to set a flashback in some 20s/30s cabaret.. you know.. maybe some Berlin cabaret..I can so imagine Mitchell in one. *hints hints*

  • Comment number 52.

    51 oh indil what a marvellous idea! Berlin cabaret Mitchell would be marvellous. undone bow tie and champers darling! thanks for the mental image!

  • Comment number 53.

    52. Oh yes.. and I could see Ivan sitting at a table in a very edonistic pose on the other side of the room.. the smoke swirling gentle and perfumed to the ceiling.
    I want this episode done. could be so beautiful it'd make me cry.

  • Comment number 54.

    7. Agree that this script shows Lucy in a more sinister light. From the series, I think we were given the impression that she was perhaps led on by Kemp. However, Lucy has little remorse for having killed another being (I won't say human, because that's not what she believes). She quickly goes from being shocked at the initial death of poor Craig, to contemplating how to get the experiment right on the next werewolf. Given the age of the first werewolf to be experimented on, "maybe only 17", this seems to make her an even more sinister character!
    & didn't Mrs Ford ever wonder what happened to her son?

    8. celticgrace, thanks for putting that on - I might have a read at some point too.

    11. Firebird, thank you! ;)

    39. Crow, it was hubby's fantasy, not mine! I'm sure Daisy would look a hell of a lot better in a bath of champagne or glitter. Perhaps the BH production / cast dance off can be around her in a bath fo glitter...

  • Comment number 55.

    53 oh Ivan would definitely be there too. glittering cuff links and smoky lime lights. Maybe he's trying to show Mitchell the good life? Or he's Mitchell's showing it to Ivan to try to cure his ennui? Yes, that's better. 'Look around you Ivan! Can't you see their life shining out of them? can't you just taste that life on your tongue'. Ok carried away. it's the Shiny, I blame the Shiny. and Indil :)

  • Comment number 56.

    54 i knew it wasn't you GR, just you communicated the idea to us. Thank you!! :)

  • Comment number 57.

    Reading that really changed my view of Kemp...I had it in mind that he was completely focused on the Vampires cos of his family, and the werewolves were almost a side line for CENSSA. I know Lucy tells Mitchell that the Vampire massacre was just a distraction (almost makes it worst for Mitchell that killing Ivan and the others was an unimportant diversion) but this script implies it was really all about the werewolves and that even Lucy hooking up with Mitchell was just to get at George. Strange to think the whole central theme of the 'human threat' for the series can change focus based on a few scenes....

  • Comment number 58.

    55. we're drawn to the Shiny like Moths to the flame. There would be a lot of Shiny there, sequined dresses, pearls, diamonds emeralds.. art nouveau furniture and jewels..
    ..oh gods I'm being carried aay..

  • Comment number 59.

    seems for them the werewolves are central because they think they can be cured - so theyre on a mission. But vampires have no souls anymore so they are just to be exterminated.

    But Lucy found that Mitchell had a soul after all - that threw her universe!

  • Comment number 60.

    57. Moonwalker. That's a very good point, I hadn't thought of it like that. It turned out to be a pretty bad move for both Lucy & Kemp to get so distracted by Mitchell & the other vampires!

  • Comment number 61.

    58 ah indil my dear, we could share a table? I think I'd be wearing peacock feathers. and if the gods are to blame then I'm thinking it's a fashionable Greek god darling! :)

  • Comment number 62.

    60 ironic really that by chasing after the three supernaturals who we know love and care and have a soul they have awakened a threat from the ones that certainly don't!

  • Comment number 63.

    61. of course we could. and I would wear fascinator with a tulle veil and a beaded translucent flapper dress, ivory white and bronze. We would have wavy hair and faked eyelashes and smoke with a cigarette holder. And at one point I could go on stage and sing "Ich weiss nicht zu wem ich gehöre", Carl playing the piano. He's there too. Of course.

  • Comment number 64.

    63 omg that's beautiful. what a great song too. all the trilling piano where you and Carl smile at each other! What a world we have created Indil.

  • Comment number 65.

    59 Celtic that is a very good way to describe it - she found out Mitchell has a soul and wasnt expecting that!

    Perhaps the 'wearing someones else clothes' was implying she thought the original person truly dies and their soul moves on and the body is then 'animated' by a demon to make the vampire. But demons don't do love, friendship, compassion let alone forgiveness so Mitchell just would not fit into her neat little box. No wonder she was both so fascinated by, and also frightened of, him!

  • Comment number 66.

    Ooooh that gave me chills reading that! It's great we get to see these things, even though they eventually got cut from the episodes!

  • Comment number 67.

    Thankyou soooo much for sharing this! Fantastic! It explains a lot. It's a shame it didn't actually get made. I'd have loved to have seen it in a longer episode (they always ended too quickly for me!). However, I've been able to picture it all in my head anyway!

    Toby: You're bloody brilliant!

  • Comment number 68.

    Thanks for the new post! It's great to actually "know" what Tully was up to etc. I don't think many producers would release this sort of thing, which is why love BH! Still don't know Lucy's backstory though.

    Lucy did seem a lot more sinister here and Kemp actually seemed more shocked by it all (would have thought vice versa).

    Dance off!

  • Comment number 69.

    Very useful info, the message from Tully was bugging me quite a bit. Thanks Toby.

  • Comment number 70.

    Strange, reading that has left me with a great sense of peace.

    It’s almost like a grieving process, wondering what happened to someone you knew at the end!

    Learning how Tully dealt with the situation, keeping his cool and showing generosity and caring till the end for Amy and George.

    Amazing. Thank you Toby this was more than clever of you to show us this.

  • Comment number 71.

    65. You know Moon, regarding the whole soul thing. I've been thinking about it and I came to the conclusion that we don't know if they have one. They have feelings, they feel love and hate and rage and so on.. but do they have a soul. In this mythology we know vampires are created by other vampires but we are not given the "a demon possess the body and the soul goes to hell" thing. well not explicitly.
    Lucy and Kemp abviously see it this way, but is it really so?

  • Comment number 72.

    I'm really glad that Toby released this as it has answered quite a few questions for me...noteably.....who was it who told Kemp about a vampire, ghost and werewolf living together: I never thought it was Owen...but it never occurred to me that it was Tully. I can only assume that Tully thought at that point that it would benefit George to be found by Kemp....I hope it was that and not retaliation for George abandoning him as a friend.

    It also gives us info on all 4 werewolves killed in the facility...made me feel even more sorry for Tully seeing how he had ended up...living rough. Poor Craig Ford..his mother sounded more of a nightmare than any transformation into a wolf!

    And yes...agree with those who say that this additional info doesn't put Lucy in a good light....she somehow got over her horror extremely quickly and the script suggests she moved to a cold, clinical 'science project' regarding the werewolves.

    Whilst I think this draft opening to eps 7 is fascinating...particularly the links from a 'new scene' to a scene previously viewed.... I'm not sure this would have worked well as an opening sequence. Not only would it have been too long, some of it would have been unnecessary. The one link I don't get is the link to Gilbert..how does that connect to anything else in this draft or was Toby struggling here to make something relevant to Annie?

    As it turned out I think Toby's substituted prequel with Daisy and Ivan was the right one to go with , relevant and useful to give us some insight into Daisy and how a young woman came motivated to leave her baby behind for a 'different' life.

  • Comment number 73.

    Ah im so jealous- I have no idea what you guys are talking about, but it sounds sooo good lol. Soo dying to read it =[

  • Comment number 74.

    little thing that I picked up on Any is referred to going in to the chamber after her lover died in the list of dead wolves it goes Craig Amy Tully Galvin so why is she now Tully's lover? that bugs me slightly

  • Comment number 75.

    How come u haven't read it yet AR?

  • Comment number 76.

    Amy being Tully's lover - yeah, it was random, to me it suggested they'd been in the facility together for a good while. It's weird seeing Tully this way too, although he was really lonely when we last saw him.

  • Comment number 77.

    74 - wait she changed lovers but still good script and Toby was right to leave it out the confrontation with Mitchell was the right time to see the real Lucy not before

  • Comment number 78.

    Evening all...

    Toby W, now I know why we love your work so much...it's odd but that script wasn't how I thought it would look if that makes any sense...I've seen them before but it looks different...must be because it's BH.. I was trying to imagine those characters saying the lines...brings it to life more...

    Dorina: Agreed with you about the script that was used being the best... and didn't we always think Lucy was a bad 'un?? Oh, that woman had a lot to answer for!

    Toby....how do you do that stuff?!! Brilliant...roll on S3..xxx

  • Comment number 83.

    Now Toby...how about an hour-long Mitchell/Josie programme...from just after they met to their break-up....I need to know more about their rather complex relationship...you could really go to town on this...that lovely music guy who sorted out those tracks and incidental music (beautiful and very, very appropriate) could have a field-day!

    Please at least think about it...shouldn't be too expensive to make cos it's only one hour...perhaps we could collectively think up a storyline for you!xx

    Yes ! new blog :)

  • Comment number 86.

    I suppose I just have to accept that Lucy was a bad person, I must admit I was warming to her when she seemed so reluctant to agree to the explosion and kept asking after Mitchell....but it really does seem the real Lucy was the heartless scientist that just saw people as tools for her research, one almost wonders if the confession to Mitchell at the end of the way the dead werewolves haunted her was just more manipulation....

    Hi Anglo! Excellent idea about an hour long Mitchell/Josie episode...I think I suggested a while ago, a Mitchell/Josie flashback each episode. I'd like to see Mitchell in a variety of styles & colours of underpants! lol What do you think to that??
    Or, even better, how about a Mitchell/Josie spin-off mini series? Obviously Herrick would feature heavily too!

  • Comment number 88.

    Yeah, it would be interesting to see more Mitchell/Ivan/Daisy background stuff - I remem in S2E1 Mitchell warns George about Daisy ("I know her/them" - cant remem exact hehe), and that got my curiousity.

  • Comment number 89.

    that would have been amazing! Also i was just wondering if CenSSA was going to continue?

  • Comment number 90.

    Oh man! That would've been so good to see. I love the fact that Owen is still lurking about...

  • Comment number 91.

    DGTTD: (88) "I know her..." warning to George as he races after Daisy...

    My immediate thought was "yes, love, I bet you do"...

  • Comment number 92.

    Mitchell flashbacks call for Berlin Cabaret Mitchell! *___________*/
    I really need this to be put in an episode..
    it would even fit in the Latin America-Nazis-Vampire Nana-Theory!!
    pretty pleeeaaaase!

  • Comment number 93.

    91. I thought the same!Maybe I was just biaised by the Des Rom connection, but it definitely seemed like he gave it a try..

    and 90. I suspect that Owen might play still a part in this.

    72 - In the last episode of S1 Owen tells Kemp about Annie George and Mitchell. But does make sense that Tully said about them to him previously with Kemp's 'We found them' comment. Loved that she got such a great revenge on the evil so and so that he wanted to stayin the mental institution forever for his own protection from them! Brilliant!

    Liz: (94) Greg Chillin's (what a fabulous name...is it real?) portrayal of Owen was astonishing...what a hell of an actor...the BBC really got the best for Being Human despite being on such a tight budget...in fact, it couldn't have been better...and more successful either...and they gave these guys a real leg up the career ladder, so I hope they're all in work for a very long time...they deserve it.

  • Comment number 96.

    Hehe, anglo, i think Mithcell (excuse the crudeness) may have banged her before :S

  • Comment number 97.

    (96), hmm, yea maybe, they did seem very friendly wen he found her in the parlour...and wen they were laying in bed...

  • Comment number 98.

    He certainly did. Ivan doesn't seem to be too upset at how wild his wife is, anyway.

  • Comment number 99.

    (95) I couldn't agree more! The acting in this show is beyond fantastic. Yes, even evil Owen - I cant decide if he's gorgeous or gross though...

  • Comment number 100.

    ivan and daisy were fab together though weren't they :)
