  • Comment number 5.

    I wonder if any of the BH actors read the blog? Do any of you 'Old Ones' know? ;)

  • Comment number 6.

    5. I don't know... if they did then they would be seriously freaked out, unable to sleep and have restraining orders against every one of us...


  • Comment number 7.

    RL is seriously hampering my BH blog activities...there should be a law or something...

  • Comment number 8.

    You were really better so no ill will

    Congratulationm guys

    Hal : more of a tennis player

    Herrick >>> cricket?

    Wyndham : marathon runner, you need to have excellent lungs and patience and stamina and

    and who do you see competing at LSO

    London Supernaturals Olympics

    bearing in mind Yvonne cannot compete because everytime she kisses the gold medallist, he falls in love with her

  • Comment number 10.

    Hello again everyone!!! was reading comments from previous blog and wanna give this a try.....bear with me...
    anyhoo...just wanted to say yay!! less than 3 hours to go!

  • Comment number 11.

    Does anyone know what that weird cupboard-under-the-stairs thing is behind them? Is it just for storage, or is there a room behind that door?

    Hehe, maybe it'll end up as Hal's cellar for keeping his victims in......

  • Comment number 12.

    "It could be a little mental" - well, so's Hal and we all like him. We all liked Herrick and he was more than a little mental!
    "Bear with us - first time and all that" - hahahaha I see what you did there *snickers* I wonder whether that will be an actual quote from this ep?
    Will have to duck out before the ep as have to watch an hour later on iPlayer (university isn't a paying job, so my house doesn't have a TV license)... panting with anticipation *looks for squeaky rubber chicken on a piece of string* *squeaky squeaky squeaky* (it's like a stressball for wolfies...) Will be washing my hair from 9 to 10, to avoid the temptation of watching live...

    Can we have a closeup of the menu board? Does it have "blood bottles" under Drinks? Or "g*mp" under Snacks?

  • Comment number 13.

    boo it didn't work
    was meant to say hello in bold :(
    *sulks in corner whilst genly rocking and passing MancVamp a gin*
    ps: what's this 180 second thing about??? :(

  • Comment number 14.

    12-@a0k666 just wondering...you take 1 h to wash your hair? must be quite a lot of hair ^^

    13-@Dizzypuss don't sulk, just try again ^^
    and the "180-s-thing" is just there to drive us even more bonkers then we allready are ;)

  • Comment number 15.

    hello :{P

  • Comment number 16.

    @14: average of one hour from walking into the bathroom to walking out again. Bear in mind that I always clean my teeth after washing my hair, usually shave my legs too, might use the loo... plus my hair *is* three feet long and quite thick.

  • Comment number 17.

    Ooh new blog! Hello everyone! Less than two hours to go! :D This is the part where time goes reallllllllllly reallllllllly slowllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy............

    I posted a reply to the last blog and didn't notice this one here yet, so I'll repost it here..

    @239 yes I did! Dunno what the problem is the other day it was just having no effect, today it made the blog crash for me so I couldn't post! Ah well will just have to stick to regular text the only reason I wanted to know how was because I wrote a little scene to post and it needed italics, but that's all stopped now!

    @LozzieLo (243) @oleta (255) I just can't do it, the fangirl thing. I have met people before that I've been a fan of, and I just feel like a complete t*at. And it's always disappointing, even if they are lovely I still just feel like an idiot. I went to the screening for bloggers of BH season 2 premiere, sat in the front row and loved every minute of the episode and the Q&A, but afterwards when the cast came out to meet people I had to walk past and leave.. (Don't get me wrong I was still looking ;) I would love to meet DM if it was a genuine meeting but I could never go up to someone and ask for an autograph/picture etc, it just feels too wrong to me! Annoyingly after checking out Travelling Light (I hadn't heard about it before) I do actually really want to see it DM or no DM, shame it's moved on now, I could have done the National Theatre but that 'UK tour' is as usual Northern only, it's all a bit of a trek from Brighton! :( Nothing good ever comes further South than London, I'm pretty sure whoever plans these tours just assumes all Southerners are actually Londoners!

  • Comment number 18.

    16-a0k666 ooooook, little bit tmi ,but then again....I just had to ask, didn't I XD
    and srsly 3 feet long hair? How does that not go on your nerves? Mine used to be really long until I just couldn't stand it any longer ^^ quite shocked the hairdresser when I told her I wanted a bob cut :)

  • Comment number 19.

    @a0k wow 3ft long hair that's impressive! My hair used to be really long too but it got annoying when it was long enough to sit on I just had to cut it. I kinda miss it though, I'm quite jealous hehe

  • Comment number 20.

    16. WiFive for the Hour-Shower, 3 foot long hair club! :D


  • Comment number 21.

    @Nic, I know what you mean about UK tours seem to think all southerners are from London, I'm in Devon, we hardly ever get anything good down here :o( We are off to the National but it will be a stopover with firends which makes it a little easier. I used to love it when BH was set in Bristol because it was one of the few programs with a West Country feel to it. . . so I was a little sad when they moved....

  • Comment number 22.

    Yay 2 hours 30 to go, v v excited! haven't been on the blogs much this weekend having withdrawal symptoms!
    @Shoe can I just say that every time I see your 'Hal face' emoticon I crack up laughing* retreats further into the crazy corner with book of crossword puzzles*

  • Comment number 23.

    Can't wait! Alex looks HOT! Just trying to balance out the hormone level!

    I think I've failed spectacularly!

  • Comment number 24.

    cant wait naw!!

  • Comment number 25.

    @23. Aha, I think you have a lot of work to do to match our mad female hormones ;)

  • Comment number 26.

    @BBD you are never going to match the Hal love here I don't think!

  • Comment number 27.

    @13: three-minute rule is to stop spammers.
    @18: it's almost always plaited, so it doesn't get in the way. And I'm too tall (5' 8") to be able to sit on it.
    @20: what is a WiFive?

  • Comment number 28.

    23-@BigBadDog There does seem to be a disconcerting level of females swooning going on on the blog...I'm quite emberassed for my fellow ladies ^.^''

  • Comment number 29.

    yay! counting the minutes!

  • Comment number 30.

    27. Its like a hi five but over the internet, i have sad friends and we make things up like that :/


  • Comment number 31.

    I might be doing a bit of swooning but I try not to be too obvious about it (never said I was good at that, only that I try! ;) Excited about tonight's episode and the Q&A, I hope the blog holds up methinks it will get realy busy especially as they're bound to announce it at the end of the episode.. Reckon we'll have a lot of new bloggers after tonight!

    @oleta Wait, it's coming back to the National? Ooh maybe I can go then! I will definitely check that out.. And Devon, ouch! Well actually, not ouch because Devon is very nice but that must be a nightmare for getting to see stuff! I have a friend in Cornwall who lives in the most beautiful place but spends half her life and all her money travelling back and forth for gigs and shows etc. At least for me London is only about an hour away by train even if it is expensive. I drove down to Devon to see the Muse homecoming gig a couple of years ago and that was a proper mission, can't imagine having to do that often heh...

  • Comment number 32.

    I think travelling light is gonna be back in the national after the tour.... I'm kinda tempted to go again! I got a bus/coach up to London from Newport on my own..... Rather nerdy I know..... But I did get to use it for uni work too- I had to write a critical review of a play. :)
    I'd feel really stalkerish if I asked for an autograph etc. but would LOVE to work with or properly meet some actors

  • Comment number 33.

    2hours and... too long to gooooo!

    Yes, that is Kate Bracken who plays Alex in the pic! She is very excited to be Being Human and she is a very lovely lady too.

    Thanks for the gin Dizzy! *nods off again*

  • Comment number 34.

    @30: brilliant idea, must use that (will try to credit you if possible) :-D

  • Comment number 35.

    9:45? I cant watch and blog at the same time :-(

  • Comment number 36.

    I don't have...questions...for Michael... :(
    Need to think hard...
    *Chews on squeaky toy for brain power*

  • Comment number 37.

    @0positiv (28) Don't be embarrassed for us, we are all perfectly willing to make idiots of ourselves on this blog! *wink*

  • Comment number 38.

    37-@RentAGhost well still, what will they think about women now ;)

  • Comment number 39.

    why cant it be on for 3 hours and we could be watching it naw? :(

  • Comment number 40.

    Excitement. Just testing the Skype out with Michael. He sounds just like Tom. Aceness.

  • Comment number 41.

    Rebecca - do you want questions now or at 9.45pm? The episode is still on then so I'll be late (as usual). So looking forward to this episode. Don't let Allison break Tom's heart and don't let Hal eat Alex, well if you know what I mean :-)

  • Comment number 42.

    40 - Rebecca why do the Q&A while BH is still on? Ill miss it.

  • Comment number 43.

    40@ Rebecca. I hope you've had your weetabix and have had plenty of vitamins!

    You're gonna be run ragged tonight!

    Good luck!

  • Comment number 44.

    :-) I've got more than enough to get started on... please come at 10:00 after the ep. I know who the regulars are and will do my best to look after you all :-)

  • Comment number 45.

    Hi Saffaz. The blog is just opening then. We won't start until 10pm xx

  • Comment number 46.


    Scared factor 10 right here.....

  • Comment number 47.

    2 hours


  • Comment number 48.

    @46. I don't envy you but if anyone can handle it it's you!

    The blog is in good hands!

  • Comment number 49.

    Hello everyone, Happy BH day!

    Only 2 hours to go!!

  • Comment number 50.

    @ Mistress Rebecca don't let them scare you, you're going to be great, and thanks again for organizing this madness ^^

  • Comment number 51.

    Phewww, But still i cant blog and watch at the same time, can i ask my questions now?

    What do you and the other cast members get up to offset?
    Who makes the most mistakes?

  • Comment number 52.

    @Rebecca you are a legend for sorting out the Q&A! Probably won't be able to come up with any good questions but will definitely be here reading all the answers - your efforts are appreciated!

  • Comment number 53.

    i cant wait for this episode its got some good reviews! is it normal to get obsessed with a t.v show and blog??? i dont feel like this over eastenders! i did with sherlock tho, they should do a blog on that.

  • Comment number 54.


    will be in company of Sasha, us ladies like to watch the whole episode, otherwise feeling it would be disrespecful of the good work done by the cast, crew and Lord Toby- very deep curtsey.

    you will have probably the list of questions us, old regulars have already listed

    a question : does Tom feel cursed? does he bother about being cursed and is he interested about what is the curse really?

  • Comment number 55.

    @46: unlike Tom, who is Scarred Factor 10 :-D

  • Comment number 56.

    Thanks so much for the Q&A Rebecca! :D Can't wait for the madness - but you might need some Kia-Ora to keep you going by the end of it, looks like it's going to be a busy night...

    Thanks again, you're the best blog mistress in the world xx

  • Comment number 57.

    @Rebecca ooh exciting! Hope my question gets chosen? ( has everything crossed)

  • Comment number 58.

    Evening. @ Nic right there with you re fangirl stuff - fan of Stargate, meet half of cast, frozen solid, glared adn probably came off worse than if I was gushing so I would have done the same as you.
    Re travelling light - am seeing it in Aylesbury which is so weird as its like my back garden then down the street and they do pick weird places for some things after a London run??
    jodifay - I agree - it would be fab to be in the business like property master, or location hunting or costumes and then just be so laid back and "Ok yeah Im used to meeting all these guys, theyre just ordinary people" .. which of course is true, and then be a secret fan in private.. actually, second thoughts I'm happier as is, expressing my rabidness in the full light of day!
    Still would be nice though to be a set dresser. Fancy that. The wallpaper in HH is very en vogue at the moment dontchaknow.
    1hr 47..

  • Comment number 59.

    53. i completley agree. Sherlock blog :P
    So excited couple of hours left :D eeepp

  • Comment number 60.

    @manc and anyone else interested! Have posted pic of @pennyliv meeting
    Damien Moloney after Travelling Light show at National Theatre, London Last week. @sunnyfla also met him and I have their permission to post the photo on twitter x

  • Comment number 61.

    Only 337.5 hours until series finale!!!!!!!!!!! OMG OMG!

  • Comment number 62.

    60 - Aw thanks RM -but your tweets are protected so no-one can see it. Not sure what the solution is really. Is Penny okay about the pic going on the blog?

    If not, I could put it up on twitter so everyone can see it?

  • Comment number 63.

    Robert... do I get the feeling you are taking the Michael out of us peeps who are counting down, ie your version of a Team Edward T shirt?

  • Comment number 64.

    off to have my Roast Beef and yorkie puds. 92 minutes :D


  • Comment number 65.

    @doesitsay I love stargate too! Wish travelling light was in my back garden lol will def try and get to the national when it comes back!

    Sherlock blog would be epic, also probably even busier and harder to keep up with than this one!

  • Comment number 66.

    Do excuse me but I looked at this photograph and giggled. The imediate thought in my head was "Hal I choose you" a la Ash Ketchum. She looks serious about Hal. Hope that one doesnt end badly.

  • Comment number 67.

    Hi Bloggers!
    Looking forward to tonight's ep. Amanda Abbington woow! and Kate Braken. I know Kate/Alex has a body double so I want to see why. Annie had a body double when Owen threw her down the stairs and she had to be at the bottom of the stairs watching it happen.

  • Comment number 68.

    @Manc. You'd need to ask Pen but she seemed fine about it..

  • Comment number 69.

    Will we be able to hear and see Michael via Skype on here?

  • Comment number 70.

    Mistress Denton. I hope you have lots of fun tonight with Michael and good luck. Wish I was there. (8-o)

  • Comment number 71.

    Really looking forwad to the show and Q&A tonight. How spoilt we are!

    Might just read it live rather than stress about it.

    80 minutes people!! :-)

  • Comment number 72.

    Hi all. Lots of new faces here. I've not posted here for months.

    Just wanted to say I'm enjoying S4 after a shaky start (anyone who follows me on Twitter may have seen my live on air nervous breakdown during S4E1 LOL). It's gradually winning me back over again and I out and out loved the Kirby episode. I'm not fussed about all this scroll decoding stuff, so I probably won't be on here much, but thought I'd pop in to say hello.

  • Comment number 73.

    68 - Thank you both! xxx

    67 - Hi Sea *waving* Isn't Amanda Abbington married to Martin Freeman who is in Sherlock? Oh and he is playing the Hobbit in The Hobbit as well - is that right or did I just make that up?

  • Comment number 74.

    I met James Marsters (Spike from Buffy) 10 years ago at an SFX convention. I was obsessed with Spike and the show at the time, but all I could think of to say was that he was too skinny (I had my arm round his waist for a photo). He was lovely, but I just came over all maternal!

    It didn't help that I was heavily pregnant at the time. He probably thought I was fat (I was). He thanked me for being a fan, and I just blushed stupidly.

    So I can't get past the fangirl flutterings when I meet someone I'm a fan of.

    There are a few celebs at the gym I go to, but I'm always to scared to speak to them. That's why twitter is so good. I can kind of speak to them on that.

    Only 100 minutes to go *squeeeeeeallllllll

  • Comment number 75.

    @Shoe.. I always want to sing that Kid Creole and the coconuts song when I see your name...ACHACHACHA.... Hope you enjoy your RB and YP. Gravy?
    Nic.. best Stargate with RDA ahhhhh...met one of my best pals in the US from fandom on that so warm cockles in heart on that.
    Bet Sherlock would be really a dense intensive blog about clues and insights.. we are happy to do a bit of that but also I love the fact that there are random comments about all sorts, so thats why its the first blog Ive really got into. People are so friendly .
    I wish my thing here would update as people write things rather than having to F5 every few mins...

  • Comment number 76.

    Less now, I don't post quickly enough :O

  • Comment number 77.

    Okay. Here it is - a picture of Damien Molony with Blogger Pennyinlv after the National Theatre production of Travelling Light.


    Don't they both look lovely!
    Many thanks to Penny for letting us put her pic on the Blog. xxx

    72 Whitehare *waving*

  • Comment number 78.

    @sea 67 did alex/kate have a body double like lenora? ooooooo mabe hal kills her and she becomes a ghost? hmmm

  • Comment number 79.

    Nicki - agree re Spike.. saw him at an SFX one a couple of years ago.. viewed from afar. Mr TW was there talking about American BH and our BH a bit, that was good.Saw Elizabeth Sladen which was poignant a while after.
    I agree - new to Twitter but you do feel a bit like best mates with people on that !

  • Comment number 80.

    @Nikki aww I sort of almost met James Marsters once when I went to see him play a gig, I saw him at the bar and he smiled at me, seeing as he must have known everyone there was a fan of his as it was his gig but I still didn't say anything hehe.. He seems pretty cool and well used to fans though he's not one to be funny or awkward about it at all!

  • Comment number 81.

    67@ Manc, No, you're right. Amanda Abbington is married to Martin Freeman.

    Do we know who Amanda is playing tonight?

  • Comment number 82.

    Hi White Hare!

    Manc that pic still isn't working. Shall I try for you?

    I don't know Leanne but I'm looking forward to finding out.

  • Comment number 83.

    82 - Yes please - it works for me though.

    Don't know who Amanda is playing. NO SPOILERS happy to wait to find out!

  • Comment number 84.

    82 - Is it that you have to be a agreed follower on twitter or sommat? Thats the impression I got.

  • Comment number 85.

    Amanda (who, yes, is MF's partner) sounded a bit anxious about it the other night but I bet she'll be fab! Makes me realise how hard it is for actors coming into a show with such a strong fan-base.

  • Comment number 86.

    67 - Manc - RM account is protected (whatever that means) so it doesn't give me the picture. Do we need to be on twitter to see it?

    REBECCA - skype - jaaaazzzzussss do I need to know how to do skype before 10 o'clock. Of for gawdsake I'm getting anxious now? Tell me I don't need to get all technical to join in. Will we see Michael *live* oh lordy getting excited now.

  • Comment number 87.

    75. Didnt know about that song, just looked it up, cant stop laughing! Roast was great, naturally i had gravy :P

    damien just tweeted: '55 mins to go... Some awkward double-dating, some more singing'



  • Comment number 88.

    Can't wait for the episode. Gah! I feel so out of place commenting on this blog. All you guys know each other... Ah well :-)

  • Comment number 89.

    Hi, I'm a long time lurker on the blog, thought I'd say hi.
    Huge Being Human fan. Huge Damien Molony fan ;-)
    DM just tweeted about tonight's show. Excited!!

  • Comment number 90.

    SEA is on the blog! hello Sea - not *seen* you for such a long time. Welcome back mrs - you've been missed.

    Oh no, we've got the green box from purgatory back. Don't do this to Rebecca - she's been working really hard for us. LEAVE HER ALONE!

  • Comment number 91.

    I just had a thought. What if...

    Man - fire - arm on the scrolls means...

    Firearm used by a man?

    I realise that this is probably stupid =P

  • Comment number 92.

    ohhh so excited to question out our new vamp michael hehe :D umm stupid quesion but did any of you buy the being human stuff like the sofa, georges jacket? on children in need i never found out and it was a shame i didn't have the money to buy it so i was hoping they went to a good home :)

  • Comment number 93.

    86. Hi sasha. I think whats gonna happen is Rebecca will be on skype with Michael. She'll ask the questions and post the replies on here.

    At least thats what i led myself to believe!

    But don't pay any attention to me.

  • Comment number 94.

    Looply - Im very new here, dont worry eveyone just fits in like a jigsaw! Dont worry! As there are many many veterans on this blog they will make you feel welcome, and Im sure as they say in Poltergeist.."All are welcome, come into the light...!"

  • Comment number 95.

    88. @looply, don't worry, we are all friendly here, i only started commenting about a month ago :)


  • Comment number 96.

    I think it's going to be a live interview on skype. That we won't be able to see. Or hear. But CAN read. I hope that clears things up :-p

  • Comment number 97.

    T minus 45 minutes, though as usual i shall be watching a little bit later, so more likely T minutes 60 mins for me.

    Rebecca: Just wanted to say hope the live Q&A with Michael goes off without a hitch and to Michael himself, you're doing a cracking job of Tom, keep up the excellent work! x :)

  • Comment number 98.

    88@looply! Welcome to the blog, don't feel out of place. Everyone is welcome.

    Remember, we were all newbies at one time.

    Except maybe MancVamp, i think she's and Old One!

  • Comment number 99.

    83 Bet that's 'cos you're still logged on to Twitter.


    Penny and Damien outside of the National

    If you right click and open in a new window then you'll come back to the right place in the blog when you close the pic.

  • Comment number 100.

    Thanks guys :-)
