Regus Comic




  • Comment number 1.

    new blog!!

  • Comment number 2.

    Shiny new blog everyone!

  • Comment number 3.

    Brilliant - You can imagine him imagining that.

  • Comment number 4.

    "vampaccula" ROFL!!! brilliant #grin.

  • Comment number 5.

    I vote for Crimson Wave

    After all it would get the most honest response.

    Huh are you really?

  • Comment number 6.

    Haha love it, "Crimson wave (bit too time of the month?)" Brilliant :)

  • Comment number 7.

    yay!! Im loving the amount of extras we are getting, we're getting extras near enough every day. Thank you very much to the BH cast and crew, LT and Rebecca for all this hard work, all of us bloggers apreciate it a lot! Thank you!

  • Comment number 8.

    How about, 'The Phantom Tea-Towel'?

  • Comment number 9.

    I took one look at him and thought "Trekker, reads too many comics, spends his evenings playing online Dungeons and Dragons". It appears I got the right idea...
    Mind you, is it much worse than Matt's drawing over in BecH?

  • Comment number 10.

    The eternal debate Gym or Corset.

    Now here is a point, what is the picture lying on?

  • Comment number 11.

    11. I think it's his blackboard with all the symbols on it Ewan.

    Sorry, should that be 'chalkboard'?

  • Comment number 12.


    "Hooded Fang" is from a kid's book called "Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang". He's a nasty pro wrestler who runs a detention camp for wayward children, but turns out to be a softy at the end. There was a movie too.

  • Comment number 13.

    When the vampire recorder is supposed to be writing down important minutes about taking over the world he's actually doodling this. The Vampires have no chance!! :-)

  • Comment number 14.

    The villains would be scratching their heads over Rhesus Thunderbolt. I love that Regus has included his "special hat" with his costume.

  • Comment number 15.

    13 Lol @ mikey. Was thinking the same thing myself.

    Obviously Regus has aspirations higher than his station. So what then is his agenda with saving Eve?

    If we're to go on what we've saw in the future then Eve doesn't wipe out the Vampires as they're in the process of sacking New York when we visit 2037.

  • Comment number 16.

    What's wrong with "Vampire Recorder"? Or "The Keeper of Scrolls"? Ungrateful swine :-D

  • Comment number 17.

    10,11- It is definitely a black/chalkboard with loads of symbols on it. I'm just re-watching S4E1 and at round 37:22 you can see it there.

  • Comment number 18.

    15. she hasn't done it YET. on re-watch i saw that Hal identifies another of the symbols on the parchment for us, this time on the right had piece, he points somewhere on the left hand piece and says "it wont happen today or tomorrow, it could be years from now, but it will happen" Is 25 years too soon? and which symbol is he translating, have we seen it anywhere else?

  • Comment number 19.

    I don't understand why he drew this showing him as a 'super Villan' yet he is all for Eve killing all of the vampires. Surely if he wants to be this great vampire then Eve is bad news.

  • Comment number 20.

    *right hand piece
    **right hand piece

  • Comment number 21.

    If the Scrolls aren't true, he has no purpose. So he wants Eve to be the War Child and destroy the vampires, otherwise his whole existence has been a sham (in his view).

  • Comment number 22.

    Or is he a sham anyway.

  • Comment number 23.

    Firstly hats off to Lord Toby and his crew who have sweated over those great blog entries.
    We had the Man from DelMonte and now we have Regus - Mild mannered bookworm by day albeit vampire and by Night the Blood Ranger or Avenger unless Rhesus. i expect the villainous werewolves will be dead by boredom before he finds the right calling as a superheroic villain or super villainous hero...

  • Comment number 24.

    anyhow, as this is really a 'funny' blog entry , leet's discuss the bot
    The Tom-bot comes with his dad coat, a backpack containing stakes, he wears a teeth necklace a tee shirt and a pair of long shorts and sneakers. The premium Tom is in his cafe best for the vintage one we plan a full werewolf outfit , but we are still undecided WHETHER TO GO AHEAD OR NOT. All depends on the public reception, we plan to launch an ad campaign very soon

  • Comment number 25.

    He seems to be confused about whether he wants to be a hero or villain.

  • Comment number 26.

    Er... technically villainous (not just because he's a vampire, also because he's keen to see all vampires destroyed - which is betrayal), but as far as the rest of the world's concerned he's probably a hero for the moment...
    And he ran off when George and Tom shredded most of the Barry chapter. So much for his picture "kicking werewolf face"...

  • Comment number 27.

    @SAINTIXE56: don't forget more stakes in Tom-bot's shorts pockets, in the poacher's pocket of his coat, etc. And a craft-knife for making more.

    Regus did play a very vital role in protecting Eve (by stalling for time, even if the only reason it worked was because the others found it entertaining and didn't expect even ONE rescue mission to turn up, never mind two) so no wonder he's drawing his supercostume.

  • Comment number 28.

    ************SPOILERS HOUR************************************


  • Comment number 29.

    *squeals in excitement* looks like some people's yearnings will be fulfilled
    But how could they abandon The Real Hustle? Annie will still be watching it, surely?

  • Comment number 30.

    @ BigBadDog

    Cheers for info on Toms opening Music ... " Your actions are infectious like a dog scratch. Pleasure is high. You been climbing walls, chewing up time, looking for joy when there's none to find."

    @Stx Why does Tom keep Changing from shorts to longs?

    Nice tune!

  • Comment number 31.

    They're long shorts - skater-type.

  • Comment number 32.

    anD he also weres long trous' down to his ankles.. Wander if he'll get Hal in shorts be ep 8?

  • Comment number 33.

    32- Oh I would love to see that, I vote that at some point Hal should wear Tom's shorts and jacket and Tom should wear Hal's suit :)

  • Comment number 34.

    good 4 a larf, then I'll wear leos blues shoes and pearls dress! Time 4 bed!! nite....

  • Comment number 35.

    It looks on the background and character images as though Hal's been forced to borrow Mitchell's old jacket and hairgel... Maybe he accidentally sets his wardrobe on fire? Or Tom forces him to wear something halfway normal to work... (though I like the suit)

  • Comment number 36.

    As for altering trousers, I suppose that sometimes Tom needs extra room for extra stakes...

  • Comment number 37.

    @mistress denton
    @mods and powers that be

    good morning to you all



  • Comment number 38.

    Morning Saint! Morning Bloggers! Morning Mods!

    Re. Tom's trousers/shorts. Maybe some days are just chillier than others? :-)

  • Comment number 39.

    Marie Claire Spring Special Issue
    Supernatural fashionitas (part one)

    Last year has seen great care taken of the legitimate aspirations of zombie Wags. In one episode, Top Model Sasha was given three different outfits. Hospital wear proved what our column has been saying for thousand of years: Green is not a colour easily worn. Long dresses for the morning breakfast with a Hawaian theme can be lovely. Though we draw the line at drastic dieting. One does not lose weight by poking an hideous Art Deco fake statue in one’s stomach. If you must let it be a real Chiparus. Lastly nothing tops Pink for dancing when one is a girlie dead girl.

  • Comment number 40.

    Just a thought - ghosts don't have shadows. Right? Wrong?

  • Comment number 41.

    And you can make those Advantage Card points go very far if you want to...Rimmel have a new range of deadly colours to mask that really undead palour...and make you feel like a Barry Girl (other makeup ranges are available, smiling at today's Mod) (and other high street chemist with loyalty cards too, still smiling sweetly at Mod) x

    However dirty and smelly one can get, once proper dead and ready to cross your door, your pink hued dress will be back to its original pristine state and you will be the envy of all the women in the room. Plus it is highly unlikely that you will suffer the bane of any fashion conscious walking dead woman : finding another one wearing exactly the same outfit. Cue: getting drunk and shouting obscenities is not becoming and could lead your live boy friend to take drastic measures regarding your relationship.

  • Comment number 43.

    Think Regus does a fine line in t-shirts as well: in the trailer for the next episode he is wearing one which says 'team Edward'! A Twilight fan, perhaps? Wonder who drew the picture of Supervillain Regus?

  • Comment number 44.

    page 3-
    Regarding werewolves: last year we she-wolf ladies of the night could show off our lovely bare shoulders with an asymmetrical top; this year Milan is only offering masculine surf fashion for mysterious reasons. Even if Karl Lagerfeld tells us it is quite the thing for our boys to wear red striped aprons, I really cannot see for the un-life of me how this can be the ‘in’ thing. Unless one stakes one’s neighbour and rightly one would want to avoid vampire blood splashing on one’s coat. Practical yes, but fashionable: No way. And why men only. It is not because our late and much regretted petite model Nina was addicted to trousers, that Dior must stop catering for us!

  • Comment number 45.

    29 - I bet it's Only Connect! Hal converts Honolulu heights!

  • Comment number 46.

    And as we are aware of the particular requirements of our fanged-friends, I have to say that our new fashion editor is one of...them...likes tea-dresses...very short tea-dresses...denim jackets...and getting covered in blood...how does she do it? "Well I just threw this old thing on...You should see what we had to use in the '40s. I had my hair in a headscarf...can you imagine...pancake makeup when I could get it...and have you tried getting blood out of a fake-silk tea-dress?"

  • Comment number 47.

    Morning All! Morning Mods!

    Saint - ROFL!

    33 - I vote that Hal just removes the suit! Am willing to help...

    Loved the cartoon version of Regus - was hilarious - and thanks for another great bit of on-line content. But aren't we missing something here? There must be a clue about Regus - he sees himself as a super-hero - but why? (I'm assuming that he drew the picture himself at this point). In the picture he is kicking a wolf and fighting off another wolf from behind - but he stood by when Tom and George killed the vampires - so why? He thinks that Eve must stay alive - to kill the vampires - why? Have they got it all wrong? If The Woman from the Future wants to kill baby Eve, to stop the vampires - then one of them is wrong - but which one?

    Brearey - hello mate.

  • Comment number 48.

    47 - more to the point. could the blonde lady he's saving in this picture be Eve? *needs to sit down*

  • Comment number 49.

    'Raait - we're gonta do this thing ti channel Eve's energy - coz she's gawd and that....em....and hopefully that might help you...not die.. or.. whatever'

    'Are there subtitles for this conversation?'

    Tom and Hal are just superb together! Loving, loving, loving them!

    47 - Mmmm, yes Regus - not sure about him at all! Twirls moustache! ~/~

  • Comment number 50.

    48 - OMG! Yes! That could be the Woman From The Future/Big EVE!!!!
    *needs to sit down too* But why is he saving her? She wants to kill baby Eve, right?

    49 - Yep - all those peeps that said it was even funnier on the re-watch were right - Tom and Hal setting off for the shops to buy the ring was my fave ... sooo funny!

  • Comment number 51.

    Once again they did it. Yes, once again they pulled it through. Vampires rule the cat walk or rather (wink-wink) the dog walk. For three years, we have been spoilt to bites (easy one) by gorgeous Mitchell who managed to steal the show while avoiding getting caught on camera (another easy one). Though one must say that PC William Herrick’s choice of appalling jim-jams and this mockery of a shirt raised more than one hairy eyebrow. No, it is not because one is a vampire that sartorial good taste is a given! His feeble attempt of fancy-dressing as Magnum P.E. with the ridiculous tropical shirt made us laugh. Stick to uniforms, Uncle Billy. I still shudder at the memory of his corporate suit.

  • Comment number 52.

    50- On closer look, the lady has a fang in the pic. Damn! That could've been so profound!!

  • Comment number 53.

    Page 5-
    Yes, this year, all our eyes were resting on the shoulders of Divine Hal. This very young man who is barely 500ys old, a teenage Old One, has been given the gift of bringing back the sexy in braces. His wear of the bow tie simply sucked our breath away. His three-piece suit with a casual neck-free shirt is so… endearing. Perfect sense of shoe wear. Let’s hope his budding friendship for adorable puppy-eyed mongrel Tom does not lead him to support the monstrous apron we have seen again and again at Milan, Paris, London and New York. Why an apron, Why here in Wales.
    But this year, the cat walk queen was…

  • Comment number 54.

    48 - Good point. He's kicking two wws away but he does have his fangs out....one of the names he's come up with for himself is Blood Moon. Blood (vamps) Moon (wws). Maybe there needs to be collaboration between a *good* vampire (i.e. one that wants to save humanity) and Eve to save the world? Gosh can't help but feel sorry for Eve - sure she'd rather that Hal was the *good* vampire. Bit easier on the eye and all that! Sorry Regus - I'm sure you're a perfectly nice vamp...or are you?

  • Comment number 55.

    Mistress Rebecca, can I hit that green box with a hammer? It's starting to really annoy me now...

  • Comment number 56.

    55 - I've only had the green box once but it keeps logging me out for some reason. I Should take it as a hint!

  • Comment number 57.

    And someone has to iron all those shirts and dryclean those suits for our fang-friends, hope they have a drycleaning operation on the go along with the catch of the day franchise, that should bring in a few pounds for the coming vamp takeover...

    Picture perfect, lovely rosy cheeked, spot on Pearl. Yes, girls this year ghosts can stop wearing this excuse of ‘not bothered’ grey shroud. This year, we are all going to bin out the leggings. No more long johns, because that is what they looked. No more Ugg-boots as in ‘ugggrh boooots’. 2012 is for ghosts what 1947 and Dior were for live women. The New Look is back. Nice long hair, charming make up, cocktail long dresses, adorable Christian Louboutin. Yes, fashion is back and it is not for weak tea lovers. Yes the undisputed queen of past years, late Annie Sawyer has lost her crown to adorable Pearl whose perfectly timed arrival on the fashion scene has lifted our spirits up. Not every ghost likes to be seen in shapeless outfits. Pearl, we needed you. Pearl, you must stay and lead the way!

  • Comment number 59.

    52 - *gets out magnifying glass* damn it! You are right Mikey! OK - so the damsel in distress is not TWFTF (the Woman from the Future - 'adds to list') or Big Eve. But nothing is adding up about baby Eve - or Regus or TWFTF/Big Eve.

    For info - At times a big news story breaks and the BBC have a lot of 'traffic' and this can affect blogs. Try shutting down and starting up again. This can often happen at peak times - like lunch-time and tea-time. Well, that's what the guy that designed these blogs said last year. Just saying...

  • Comment number 60.

    Bloody tree hugging, Guardian reading, soya milk drinking, bicycle riding, aluminium collecting f***wit!

    Hal....he's got me in a heimlich.....nelson!

    ROFHL - guess what I've been doing today. Oh my, I need a hankie! I think I might expire! ROFHL....

  • Comment number 61.

    I'm still laughing about "gym or corset"
    I have that same conversation with myself regularly and it's corset everytime. Mind, if Regus does go that route, maybe we don't actually need to see it...

  • Comment number 62.


    Hints but nothing spoiled in this - not even as much as in the trailer at the end of ep 2!

  • Comment number 63.


    was going to put your review- lucky guy- on the blog
    but you beat me to the post


  • Comment number 64.

    62 Hello scifibulletin - and welcome to the Blog!

    One of the things about peeps that insist that something is spoiler-free is that what a 'Spoiler' is - is pretty subjective. (SFX magazine really need to look up the word 'cryptic' in a dictionary). But thanks for posting, scifibulletin - nice of you to come by - welcome to the blog again - and I hope you love #beinghuman as must as the fans do. Sorry - not opening your link though.. just in case.. x

  • Comment number 65.

    @64... As a fan, I know what I don't want spoiled when I watch an episode, so I'm very careful about what I put in the reviews (we're also asked very politely by the show's publicists to help maintain the surprises!)

    It's always a dilemma, because I'd write a very different review of Being Human 1955 if it was going up after transmission, but these have to tantalise without giving too much away.

    Have a look at it after 10 p.m. Sunday and see if you agree that it sets the scene without spoiling it - I'd be interested to hear yours (and everyone's) reactions


  • Comment number 66.

    yekim-mikey. Being Human and Only Connect two of the finest television has to offer. I could just imagine Victoria Coren meeting Hal she would either leave him a gibbering wreck or he would be totaly smitten.

  • Comment number 67.

    65 - scifibullein - Hey Paul - thanks! And I will do that! It would be nice to know what to trust and I really apreciate that.

    For me, Roxie has done a terrific job on publicity for Being Human and BBC Press and @bbc3tv

    If I am ever thinking of watching a show that I don't know - I always want quite a lot of info about it before I invest my time in watching - and it is great that there has been so much publicity this year (never had much in previous years) if I were new to Being Human I'd be intrigued and watch. So as a huge fan of Being Human - once again - thanks for spreading the word!

    Hope you'll come by again - am sooooooooooo jealous that you get to see Ep 3 before we do!

    I'll give you my wish list -

    Hal gets his kit off (oh shurrup)

    Laura Patch is AMAZING!

    We are left totally dumbfounded as to what on earth is going on (Lord Toby at his best)

    Jamie Mathieson, who wrote Ep 3, will be as funny as the on-line content is that we have already seen.

    Thanks again, Paul x

  • Comment number 68.

    haaa this is sooo funny, I wish he actually turned up on their doorstep looking like this!!

  • Comment number 69.

    66- *snorts coffee over laptop* A match made in heaven! Or hell....

    68 - Hello vampsrule - and welcome to the blog - sorry we can't see you yet, hang in there... you need to pass Mod security...

    Grrr... real life calls... have fun xxx

  • Comment number 70.

    That green box was back...Ewan you about? The Doc's sonic screwdriver could come in handy...just point it and zap! OK it wasn't me who broke the blog...stepping away from the computer...got coffee and homemade scones...anyone want one? Well I know the Mod security will have one...they look very dapper in their black suits...you don't moonlight as policemen or milkmen do you? You look a bit pale...been getting enough sunlight lately? Oh, you've been on a container ship somewhere off...

  • Comment number 71.


    can't help noticing that green box came out of a pineapples container... scratching ear

  • Comment number 72.

    You know what he's like...he's a bit worried about the HH hoover...that's all I'm saying...

    and Herrick's got a very sore head, apparently a drum kit fell on his head...no idea who did that either...

  • Comment number 73.

    28 - thanks Saint, do you happen to have a link for the extra scene with Annie and Leo, I still can't find one I can view here

  • Comment number 74.

    Cool drawing better than anything i can do.

    "You guys are obsessesed with history"

  • Comment number 75.

    Ahh brilliant :) i so hope that he actually wears this in the show

  • Comment number 76.

    I'd be very happy to see that comic in Forbidden Planet, Regus - The Secret Years...how I single-handedly saved/damned/not quite sure what I've done to the world but...I did it, yes me, with my wobbly use of Latin, my wonderful dress sense, and my very strange loyalties...yes me, who very nearly said "Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub during my ritual...I did it! So it's all my fault...er...

  • Comment number 77.

    must say the scene between hal and Tom when they are going to the pawnbroker is jubilatory

    ...planning to sit in and self harm... have we finished flirting...

    George with teeth and Mitchell having stopped to indulge in self pity

    That is what I like w/Hal, he does not look for forgiveness, he believes he is way past that stage, he is a 'it is too late for me' so he is an adult vampire, hence an OO

    young vamps like Cara, Mitchell etc, they are all but kids and teenagers with matching behaviours, OOs like Hal but also Ivan who was verging to it, they have stopped looking for forgiveness
    they are what they are


    'deal with it'

  • Comment number 78.

    Speaking of the pawnbroker scenes...did I see something that isn't there? Stop sniggering Mods, that isn't funny...In the scene where Tom says something about control, and pulls Hal away, do Hal's lips not move when he says something about you people...then they do for the next piece of dialogue, they aren't in synch or am I seeing things? I mean it Mods, stop sniggering!

    Oh and does anyone else think Hal's accent sounds like James Purefoy's? Been trying to think who he reminded me of.

  • Comment number 79.

    77 - Oooh Saint - that expresses it perfectly, I think!

  • Comment number 80.

    78 - Hiya Misty. I think Tom says to the shopkeeper - 'clean yourself up - do it now' as he is pulling Hal away? But I had to listen to it a couple of times to get it. Thought there was a bit of a stray *f* word in there first time round.

    Do you know, I think that is one of the funniest things I've seen in ages, absolutely ages. I've watched the 'Hal....Hal....he's got me in a heimlich........nelson!' loads of times and it creases me up every time.

    And as much as I loved Mitchell and George, I don't think this series will miss either of them at all. This comes from someone who was really worried about the prog when M was staked at the end of S3. I think that LT is spot on when he says we'll think 'Mitchell.....Mitchell who'. I'm more or less there already. I find Hal much more menacing than Mitchell ever was - even at his worst - in my book, that is a good thing. A.Very.Good.Thing.Indeed! As always, this is my opinion only and other opinions are widely available ;-)

  • Comment number 81.

    78 - Yes, that's who he reminds me of in certain ways, voice being one of them - James Purefoy (another fave of mine), well spotted!

    Must admit, didn't think anyone would come close to AT on the vampire candy front but Hal's really hitting a sweet spot!

    Also, did anyone else think that when they leave the shop Hal mouthes bxxxxcks at the shopkeeper? Or just my imagination?

  • Comment number 82.

    It's the bit right after that Sasha. I'll watch it tonight, could be seeing things, I mean it Mods, stop laughing, better go, the librarians are circling...need Regus here...

  • Comment number 83.

    82 - Oh don't tell me I need to watch it again? :-)
    I'll just go check...................

  • Comment number 84.

    Hiya! Sorry to interrupt but someone (Lycos?) asked about Tom's music. In case no one else has said, it's Henry's Funeral Shoe singing dog scratched ear


  • Comment number 85.

    ***********interesting spoilers*********************************


  • Comment number 86.

    84 - Sea - you most certainly are NOT interrupting? Grab a chair. I've had a lovely re-watch of Ep2 today - utterly superb!

  • Comment number 87.

    66- Yeah, hal would turn Victoria Coren into a vampire though! A sexy posh female vampire...

    78- I think as long as the writers keep up the good work and the new actors are good, then the show can thrive. Mitchell & George will be missed but it can evolve without them

  • Comment number 88.

    Just re-watching Ep2. Hal's speech. Boy! it's good. didn't see the lip-synch Misty.

  • Comment number 89.

    in less than 1 hour, we shall have - hopefully - a new blog entry as per the 'daily entry' promise?

    fingers crossed

    must say, not over impressed by Regus TTMan

    yes, killjoy is my nickname

  • Comment number 90.

    I've meant to say before - there was some talk about the bedrooms Tom and Hal are using. That doesn't bother me but what does is that Nina and George chose the attic for the baby's room. Why? It's a long way from their room - not easy for those night feeds or just for listening for the baby crying. It's up an extra flights of stairs - looking after a baby is exhausting enough without the extra stairs. And it has a history. Three beings died in there in the space of a few weeks. So why on earth would they put the baby in there?
    Phew! I feel better for that.

  • Comment number 91.

    And do get me started on leaving a TV on all day for the baby - or even having one in the room.

  • Comment number 92.

    Ooops!! That should be "don't" obviously. I do hate this 3 minute rule. *drums fingers*

  • Comment number 93.

    Attic for baby's bedroom: babies don't usually move into their own bedroom for several months. It's quite likely that Annie was in charge of night feeds anyway (so that George and Nina didn't have to wake up - Annie doesn't sleep), plus it can be monitored with the chimney, AND the other rooms are Mitchell's (which was Mitchell's so no way), Annie's (which she's using) and the twin (guest) room (which is too big).
    As for the TV, the baby wasn't getting any social interaction (George wouldn't even let Annie cuddle her, remember?) so the TV was presumably put there for her to focus on so that she wouldn't be bored.

  • Comment number 94.

    Plus It was probably George's idea because it is probably easier to protect Eve in an attic with a narrow stairway up to it than the bridal suite.

  • Comment number 95.

    Good point HAz152! The social worker Lisa actually overlooked the staircase at first (she went right past it, Fergus had to point it out to her), and one person with a stake can block the whole staircase (as we saw in "The Longest Day").

  • Comment number 96.

    90- Likelihood is that Eve wasn't moved to the attic until after Nina's death. And he was constantly on guard in there.

  • Comment number 97.

    Hi Sasha, can you please explain to me the joke about Heimlich... Nelson? Is it something British? I'm from Holland.
    Thanks a lot.
