Hi!

It is a great honour to be your Being Human Blogger for the forthcoming fifth series.

Yes, four seasons of stalking Toby Whithouse has FINALLY paid off.

The deal breaker? Threatening to expose The Tobester’s* (uncannily accurate) Pat Butcher impersonation to his adoring public. How he hasn’t been cast as David Wicks’ younger brother I’ll never know.

There’s more to it than that... honestly. I used to write and research the BBC’s Cult website, way back in the days when The X Files was the only supernatural show on TV and the new Doctor Who was nothing more than a twinkle in Russell T Davies’ eye.

Why do I love Being Human?

I’ve loved each series for its fresh twists on old genre staples and supernatural folklore. At the exact moment I lost interest in the recent zombie revival, along came Sasha... and she broke my still-beating heart. Series 4 pulled off the astounding trick of making me sympathise with Yvonne Bradshaw’s lust-inspiring-yet-eternally-unlucky-in-love succubus… I mean, we’ve all been there, right?

Yes, I wept when Mitchell got dusted. Shook my fists in the air to learn that Nina had gone to the great big kennel in the sky. Bawled my eyes out when George made the ultimate sacrifice for Eve. I’ll miss Annie more than she’ll ever know... but the new characters are so damn intriguing!

Questions, questions, questions...

• Can Hal suppress his dark side?

• Will Alex ever forgive Hal for her death?

• Why does Tom remind me of Woody out of Toy Story?

I for one cannot wait for 2013...

The Hooded Fang (Steve.)

*Yes. I really CAN call him “The Tobester.”

[Answers the phone.]

CORRECTION:

Yes. I really CAN call him The Right Honourable Lord Tobias “Grandmaster Flash” Whithouse.

    I'm trying very hard to keep busy keep sane at the moment, but all this waiting feels a lot like hell, especially as we know we're so close to transmission now. If we don't see a trailer or get an air date soon, I might have to take to my bed until February. I'd ask about the air date again, but I think I can hear Steve sobbing softly and repeating over and over "I am not a performing monkey."

    Ah well, patience is a virtue. It's just that waiting sucks spectacularly...

    I am looking forward to the online content I'm very much hoping we get this year. I'm still catching up with all the Series 4 blogs, which were amazing! And the re-runs have started, fueling the theory that we can expect a Feb 3rd start to Series 5. But I must point out that ShoePigeon did say this all along!

    Anyway, I hope all the bloggers and Hooded Fang Steve are enjoying the new year so far, and that we get some new content soon to help make January go faster!

    Hello and a warm welcome to the new Blogmaster, Hello and happy New Year Bloggers! :o)

    I'm back and on the graveyard shift as usual. Can't wait for the new series and for all of our wild plot speculations and in-depth analysis! Might even post in daylight hours at some point.

    Flying by to say, "Nano nano" to Steve, and to you all. Welcome, former lurkers. Can't believe it's almost that time again. (Cue Rolling Stones song)

    @lycan666 I have watched it but I was very naughty about it and did a lot of digging to find it online. I won't post a link here because it will definitely get modded. Are you on twitter?

    Hiccy New year to Ye all bloggers new and olde, seem to have lost track of bloggings, but have the same anticipation rising in my veins as I get before the full moon, which also seems to have infected the whole blog now.

    @shoe pigeon did I see right a while ago that you rewatched the Pilot? PLEASE can you tell me where you found it? or have you somehow got your own copy?, I've managed a few rewatches of S1 and would love the Pilot to complete the story.

    @ any VanHelsing watchers ... anyone else see the recent repeats over the festive period? what a wacky film ... love the line by Van Hs monk assistant, when he walks in after the WW has just been
    climbing the walk "why does it smell of damp dog in here?"
