Hey gang,

The sun is shining down in Barry Town, which can mean one thing only: we’ve finished shooting the exciting bits and bobs that will make Series 5. The weather has been exceptionally glorious since we left – always the way! It was sad to disband, of course, but this means that the series is one step closer to YOU and we like that.

But where have we been, I hear you ask? Well, without giving too many spoilers away, we’ve been in our new place of work – it’s true, the Café on the Corner is no more – and this time we’ve got sea views. We’ve been back at the Archive, so brilliantly set up by the Man In Grey With The Bluest Eyes, Mr Rook. We’ve been in Captain Hatch’s lair – as disgusting he’s promised to be. We’ve gone deep underground, taken to the streets, had fun at the fair and travelled far, far away (within the realms of the universe and our budget) to explore the past. And to Honolulu Heights, of course. Lovely Honolulu Heights.

What about the characters along the way? I know there’s been some discussion recently about our favourite guest characters – and more about them on the blog in the future – but we hope we’ve created some new gems to be added to the pantheon of greatness. How do we go about that? In this series, like the ones before it, we’ve started by working out a character’s human equivalent. Whilst the supernatural type acts as a great catalyst for drama, it’s this that we use to define them. Sasha = WAG, Adam = horny teenager, Michaela = pretentious goth. Of course, by the end of the process, they’re hopefully much more layered, with an emotional truth at their heart. But they start out as “You know So-And-So? What if this supernatural was like them, times a thousand?” We make excellent friends. Honest.

In other news, I think the next update will come from a new BH Insider! It’s exciting times for you guys as this person will be dedicated solely to Being Human social media. We’ll be breaking them in gently, but in 2013 it will mean many more posts for the run up to Series 5 and throughout the broadcast. Enjoy!

    Wow I wish so much that there was a way to bring back Mitchell and George. They should have kept them around for at least a few more seasons. It doesn't even seem like the same show now
