Think you know Nina?... Think again.

With her discovery of the grizzly supernatural world (and the small matter of seeing her boyfriend kill someone whilst in wolf state) there's an awful lot for her to get her head around.

It's a big challenge for Nina and an even bigger challenge for the woman behind Nina... the legendary Sinead Keenan. We caught up with her on the set of series two to find out how she's getting on with job...

    Aaww lovely Sinead....doesn't she have a lovely accent? Well she is keeping an eye on the blog or did she say 'we'?

  • Comment number 2.

    Ooh kicking off with the Werewolf!Nina storyline straight away then? Fun fun. :P

    Am I really the first comment?

  • Comment number 3.

    lol. I was almost the first comment. :/ *waves at VF*

  • Comment number 4.

    Hi Everyone! Hope you've all discovered the new video!

    Fantastic! New vid to keep us going! It's great to hear from Sinead...and looking forward to seeing you on Halloween in Nottingham!

    Lucky Nina has the wolf in her! :)

    Thanks BH production team!

  • Comment number 5.

    Hi C and joooos....well it all kicks off in the first 3 then...won't have long to wait....I really hope it has a happy ending I couldn't bear for George to have his heart broken.

  • Comment number 6.

    Hi C & Vampfan!
    Glad you're back Vampfan...are you going to Nottingham?

    Yes, looks like lots of excitement in Series 2, and right from the beginning too!
    I couldn't bear for George to have his heart broken either...really hope that doesn't happen.

  • Comment number 7.

    Yay - think I've been in hiding for a few months and found loads of new videos *put feet up, and settles in for the night to catch up*

    Thanks blog team - getting excited cause now the clocks go back that means it's getting closer to our New Year fix of BH Series 2 :D

  • Comment number 8.

    Still not sure if I am going to Nottingham...think it is supposed to be a surprise from hubby...so I can't ask....I am working on the theory that I'm not going then I won't be disappointed....much

  • Comment number 9.

    What's happening in Nottingham - something BH-related?

  • Comment number 10.

    shell:: google nottingham/hallowean/mayhem

  • Comment number 11.

    OMG the BH cast are actually going to be a 20 min train ride away from me..... *faints*

  • Comment number 12.

    sorry shell.....half a message and spelt wrong.....halloween and it it is Mayhem Horror Festival

  • Comment number 13.

    It's ok - I found it VF, thanks. How exciting - how long do you think the BH team will be on for?

  • Comment number 14.

    Until the Irishman says three thousand otters tottering around Totterdown....Hehe, or prob about an hour or so..really not sure

  • Comment number 15.

    lol

    I was planning a shopping trip soon to Nottingham - the annoying thing is that I have to work that morning :( Very excited at the thought of previews of Series 2 though - maybe they'll be on the blog soon.

    *faints again at the prospect of the Irishman being in close proximity*

    I need help. lol

  • Comment number 16.

    I am trying not to think about close proximity because A) It might not happen and B) It might happen......when you faint....please ensure you leave space for me...won't be far behind you.

  • Comment number 17.

    I'll have to have one of those airbags fitted to me like on the ING Direct adverts, to cushion the fall a bit :P lol

  • Comment number 18.

    VF & Co: Hello missed that vid completely and was still blogging on the other one so you've missed my blog VF!....how are you, back to a bit more like your old self hun?

    Nice little vid there...getting more excitd about S2 now that I know that sooo much more activity in it...oooo

  • Comment number 19.

    VF::: Sinead said "I", not "we" I think, which is sad but quite lucky for us.

  • Comment number 20.

    Hi anglo...and thanks....Somerset by the sea...how lovely....I went to ASDA, does that count?
    Yes, glad she said "I" not "we"....you lot would be mortified if they read some of the stuff you wrote. Hehe

  • Comment number 21.

    VF:: ...Asda will do, I ended up in Tesco's meself with my pal...it was either that or doing the blasted shopping once I'd done the half-hr train journey back to Bristol, then a bus journey, so did it there and carried it back...much less hassle.

    Have you noticed (re the blog) that although we are waxing lyrical about our gorgeous Irish vampire, that he has been very much in the background of late.. now either he's filming a lot (and he would be if there's more in the way of vamp action going on) or something else is happening, like possibly making plans of his own....USA maybe or other stuff....or maybe he's just shy (awwww)...we'll soon sort that out, won't we Vampy hehe

  • Comment number 22.

    He could be any of those things.......or just terrified

  • Comment number 23.

    VF:: Forgotten about the terror....how shall we put him at his ease, then?

  • Comment number 24.

    I have only just got myself un-modded...are you trying to send me back there?
    (*whispers*...could think of several ways)

  • Comment number 25.

    VF::: See what you mean....at least we're on topic lol...let me see...would this involve a) chairs, b) shackles, c) handcuffs, d) a nice full body massage with essential oils (perfect for relaxation) or e) all of the above.... there I've said it, now...all you have to do is agree with me hehe

  • Comment number 26.

    agree

  • Comment number 27.

    VF::: Knew it!....all in our heads of course....staves off the boredom and minutae of everyday living...and I haven't been removed so we can talk like this pretty much cos it's related to BH and therefore no-one minds (I hope).. won't ask him any embarrassing questions at Nottingham, though....I'll be kind to him and only try and ask all three/four actors if they're there that it, sensible-ish questions....do hope your hubby is sorting Notts out for you....we'll let you know what we'll be wearing in case you turn up so you can recognise us..

  • Comment number 28.

    Hiya Gang! *huggles VF, Cieria, Joooos, Anglo, Shellmoby and BHProd* Gawd, I wander away to eat and come back to find so much BH goodness! I should eat more often! :P

    YAY for Nina!! Isn't she so cool?! Gah, but we already knew that! ;) Am I right in thinking this is Sinead's first proper feature in the blog? If so, double yay!! *does a happy KC dance*

    Hehe, avidly rewatching for any clues in the background as to future events but, well, you good folks on the Blog team are too darned good at keeping us in suspense! *bounces excitedly* So, its all kicking off is it? Hmmm... couple that with some of the intriguing hints from before on Twitter and, well, I can't WAIT! Not that THAT's anything new. *bounces some more*

    Hey VF! (comment 14) I just made that suggestion today on Twitter, that we ask them (okay, mainly AT) to say that for us squealing fangirlies. ;)

    Hmm, yeah, Anglo (comment 21) - Aidan does seem to have been taking a back seat lately, doesn't he? Maybe he's filming some really juicy stuff so they don't wanna give anything away by featuring them in the blog? Just a thought. ;)

    I have to say I honestly can't thank you guys enough BH Prods! MWAH! You're helping keep the BH love alive in between the series' and that kind of acknowledgement to the fans is very, very rare. And we love ya right back for it!
    Gah, I'm getting all mushy! Sorry! Better get back to writing murder and mayhem (final chapter of my current fic)in preparation for Mayhem and Horror next week. SQUEE! ;)

  • Comment number 29.

    I may not go.....after all someone has to be available to come down to the polce station and bail you lot out.

  • Comment number 30.

    KC:: Have tweeted you re train times....mine is Virgin train.

  • Comment number 31.

    VF:: Maybe we ought to saving up our pennies/pounds then hehe, just in case.. am really missing not knowing what Aidan and Russell are up to... they've been so quiet...probably getting over nervous exhaustion after seeing our stuff or at least hearing about it, poor babies...maybe they go round Bristol in disguise now just in case they see a mad woman lurking round various areas with a camera and a dodgy mac....me, if you were wondering

  • Comment number 32.

    Hi KC....stop bouncing...you'll make yourself sick.

  • Comment number 33.

    BH PROD: We loved that little vid of Nina...realise she can't give much away but the action seems like it'll be hotting up come January....

    Just to say thank you for keeping us in mind and provided us with more reasons to be daft on the blog!

  • Comment number 34.

    Ohhhh, say it ain't so VF! (comment 29) Please... we'll be able to use our womanly wiles to charm our way out of the cop shop. Erm, not that we're planning a trip there... right? *almost looks worried* :D

    Cheers Anglo!! I'll go and have a lil look now. ;) LOL I've no idea what mine is - its a train and I'm fairly sure of the leaving time and... thats about it. :S With all my forward planning, how come I get lost so easily? ^^ LOL

    ^^ KC

  • Comment number 35.

    Just over a week now to Nottingham...Yay! Even if we don't get to see any of the cast (fingers crossed we will though), at least we'll get to meet each other...which I hope will be a good thing! Think we'll all get each other even more excitable once we meet up!

    KC (28) Was thinking it's the first time I've seen Sinead do a proper blog...it's great she gets her own feature now. Was really pleased when she tweeted me back yesterday too!

  • Comment number 36.

    aww don't you just love her shes so sweet well they all are really.

    cant wait for the new series i really cant wanna no what happens now i just cant wait never have been able to

    I'm all jealous about you all go off to talk and drool at the cast next week (oh why oh way did i have to have a kid)

  • Comment number 37.

    Katy (36): She is lovely, its nice to have her on her own and chatting though she couldn't say a lot....that warehouse or wherever they are looks freezing, no wonder she's wearing several layers lol

  • Comment number 38.

    Great to see Sinead in a blog on her own. I love her character ...but remember what Toby said..'someone dies, someone kills' in BH2....

    Now..about Nottingham...and this isn't easy to discuss...
    I have tickets for me and Man..but..this doesn't mean that we are going. As some of you are aware, next weekend is going to be a difficult one . We have the loan of a car for the pm only. If we go...and Man will make that decision, probably last minute, as his emotions are my priority, we'll have to 'fly in and fly out'....I'm not even sure we'll get there on time and/or will have to leave early. Just as well I'm not an autograph hunter as we'd have no time for that or meeting others.
    I do understand the huge excitement you all have for the day...but it will have to be enough for me, if I get there, to see the cast and Toby, take a few pics and listen to the QAs.
    Next week ( and in particular next Friday/sat and Sun) is going to be difficult but I will post later next week
    I am missing you all

  • Comment number 39.

    Anglo.. you soooooo deserve to be modded for that little one.... oh and I choose "all of the above"... of course, pmsl!!!

    Brown... yeah.... but he doesn't really specify much... for example Mitchel died but came back as a vampire so "someone dies" could mean "someone is turned" or something...


    Love the Blog vid! Great to see Nina!! I just keep remembering the stairs scene "he can tell me in person.... just tell him he better stay the hell away from me....." pmsl!!!

    And regarding The Beautiful One's absence... think it's pure fear, lol!!!

  • Comment number 40.

    Brown... Hope goes as smoothly as possible for you... sending hugs to you and your Man!

  • Comment number 41.

    SweetL: (39)....I was naughty but certain M's don't seem to mind that... maybe they're his fans too and say far worse things hehe....trust me, it was nowhere near what I could've said.

    Do you think Nina kills George or George Nina?? Someone dies....someone kills.. but a main character also dies, so what if one main character kills another main one? By "main", though, I guess it could be the Professor, Lucy (they could be one and the same), or anyone...blimey I want to be put out of my misery!

  • Comment number 42.

    Mitchel kills the professer.... the professer dies... there we go a result we would all be happy with, pmsl!!!

    Better not be The Divine One... or the BBC boycott will be far worse than the one over QT, pmsl!!!!

  • Comment number 43.

    SweetL: lol....hopefully, they'll not bump off Mitchell...the ratings would plummet! I'm sure he'll probably think about going to the States but I ohpe not yet...he's been a bit quiet lately in vids apart from briefly in the Runner vid but I think he's going a lot more filming this time.

    And apparently I've watched 387 vids....actually, I've watched the same dozen or so 387 times lol....can't keep away from 'em.

    Gotta go to bed now....energetic day tomorrow, mega-clean of spare room for Eagle staying here next Saturday & Sunday nights.

    Night hun x

  • Comment number 44.

    Anglo, you realise that now you're coming to see me in Birmingham I will expect you to get me an autograph (if you get to speak with them. If not then obviously it doesn't matter). But if you could then I'd love you for ever. Especially if it's Aidan's. Or all of them. ;) But just Aidan's will do. :P

  • Comment number 45.

    evening all - just home from work - I served my (yes MY lol I choose to ignore the woman he always comes in with lol) Aidan Turner lookalike - the last couple of times he's been in (he always ends up being served by me...funny that! :-P) it normally takes all my energy just to stay on my chair lol but this time I actually managed to talk to him (didn't flirt...much...promise lol)

  • Comment number 46.

    Oh and I cant watch the vide but YAY FOR NINA! Will watch as soon as I can - cant be doing with the pub on friday night not even for the wifi...oh god Im getting old before my time :-(

    Ah do love Sinead though she seems lovely Im so glad shes coming to Notts :-)

  • Comment number 47.

    Woo watched it - it stopped after every 2 seconds and started again but I couldnt wait til tomorrow :-P Aww I love Sinead she seems lovely...I have to say I am of course excited about meeting the others (Especially Russell lol) but I think she's actually the one I'm most looking forward to meeting - she's always so nice on twitter and messages everyone back (well except me last couple of days but I expect shes a bit sick of me bombarding her with messages lol I just get over excited and send like 3 at once...oops!) and one evening a while back - before she had quite so many followers to keep up with - she twittered (or is it tweeted I never remember :-S) me loads when I was talking about my career and current rubbish job and stuff - cheered me up no end :-) so yeah Sinead=brill :-)

    Also love the way she says theres always loads of activity on the blog but doesnt mention the fact that about 99% of it is us just talking rubbish lol think she must just skim and go "ooh 400 posts...they must be having a really in depth discussion about the rules and lore of werewolves" when in actual fact theres just vampfan and brown talking about Aidan and everyone else wondering whether 3 hours before is early enough to get to Nottingham and guarentee a decent view :-P

    Good video anyway thanks again Mr P :-) even more excited for Nottingham now...I'll never sleep!

  • Comment number 48.

    Ooooh exiting!
    Sorry I haven't been on much, it's all kicking off down here!
    Will try and get on tonight/tomorrow if I'm able too....

  • Comment number 49.

    C:: (44)...if I can get an autograph, provided we're allowed near the flavoursome foursome, and if they're all or some of them there, I will....I need to get a couple for other people too so I've decided to sharpen the elbows for good use lol...it'd be nice to get one for Vampy if she doesn't go although I'm hoping she will.

    Eagle:: You have an Aidan Turner lookalike who turns up to your work???? Can you hire him out and if so, how much? You could get commission lol...hope your night was made more bearable by his presence...mine would be if the real thing were in my presence hehe...

    Hope the cleaning is going well...strangely, I have yet to start mine!

  • Comment number 50.

    ATfan: When you say it's all kicking off do you mean where you are or the blog and us mad fanfolk nattering on happily about conventions, Nottingham, vampires and so on....what's going on down with you, if it's all happening your end? Sounds mysterious and exciting!

  • Comment number 51.

    Thanks Anglo. :) Obviously I won't complain if you don't get near then. Because then there'd be nothing you could do about it. :P (If you do though, make sure you write on them who's who because sometimes signatures can be hard to read.)

  • Comment number 52.

    BeingHumanProduction - Apparently you cut out the bit where sinead said some of the bloggers names can we pleaaaaaaase see it I wanna see what she said about these nutters lol *hopes she wasnt mentioned* :-D

    Anglo - yeah he's been in a few times now - it's not just me who thinks so - after he left I turned to the girl next to me and said "oh my god that was the aidan lookylikey I was on about" and she said "oh that vampire thing yeah he really does look like him...needs a hair cut though" lol

  • Comment number 53.

    Anglo and C - Sinead said we won't need to bribe for autographs so think that means we might be allowed to ask for them :-) but if anyone has some hersheys kisses left over from a holiday to the states??? Then I don't see the harm in taking them along :-D

  • Comment number 54.

    Eagle: Don't have any Hershey's cos I've never been to the States lol but it's nice of Sinead to say that we don't have to bribe for autographs because hopefully that means (hopefully!!!..) that they are going to give them out... if this is true then I shall get C and brown some...we could always take something else along for them at a push...

    Your colleague thinks he needs a haircut!!!!????? What, is she mad??? *mouth open*

  • Comment number 55.

    Hehe I know hopefully :-D keep fingers and toes crossed :-P

    Oh and re the hair - I know - madness!

  • Comment number 56.

    Eagle (52): Your colleague thinks the vampire needs a haircut?...well no more than the tiniest of trims surely?

  • Comment number 57.

    Haha I love that since Sinead said she read the blog it's been really quiet on here lol it's too late now guys they already know what your like :-D

  • Comment number 58.

    Ha!....all just busy with life eagle:....no worries..do you really think any of us are going to stop talking about/drooling over/fighting over Aidan and Russell...ah...no....not going to happen.

    Quiet night in tonite.....Man cooking and then we'll watch Stictly...and try to chill out....and practice our samba moves ( not an easy dance although it looks it)

    Hope sale of your house goes well...not something I've experience of but hear that can be stressful situation



  • Comment number 59.

    Wow Sinead is so lovely! I am so so gutted i can't go to Nottingham, i was so excited when i heard about it but I've committed to getting a dog on the friday and although Mum offers to look after it occassionally she won't on the first two nights i have it - vital bonding time!

    Wow they are all amazing though and i've never been to a 'convension' before so jealous you're all going - must report back how fab it is and who was there.... Hope you all get to meet all 4 cast and Toby. *now drifting into a dream about the gorgeous AT and his wonderful hair!*

  • Comment number 60.

    Given that there is so much 'activity on the blog' do you reckon any of the writers read your thoughts/stories? wouldn't it be wicked but equally freaky if they took some of your ideas and then made them or incorporated them into the show? Ok maybe not the ones when you talk about kidnapping AT and tying him and and stuff but your other thoughts on the future of the characters.... wow that would be quite a compliment to you.

  • Comment number 61.

    Ok now totally getting sucked in with x factor! and eeeee just finished ordering the Des Rom boxset off amazon. Couldn't resist the lovely Rafe and of course AT but really its all the art that's fascinating - heard there's going to be a display at one of the big galleries soon of some of the Pre Raf works and its not too far to travel to.... might just have to pursuade mum to dog sit one weekend when it launches lol.

  • Comment number 62.

    Hehe well we joked a while back when they asked us what we'd like to see in series 2 that they couldnt think of anything so were hoping one of us would come up with something good for them lol

    This isnt the actual convention in nottingham - the convention is next year in Bedford - this is a little extra thing not really sure what it is - something for people who want to celebrate Halloween but are far too old to go door to door dressed as witches asking for mini mars bars and quality streets I guess lol

  • Comment number 63.

    I'm getting des rom on dvd for christmas hopefully :-)

    Do you know where they're doing that? The only pre raphaelite stuff I've seen is what's at the tate - I'll stop there before I get stuck too far down the artsy fartsy path again lol

  • Comment number 64.

    Racey: Hi there...well, we know the blog is looked at occasionally by the BH PROD TEAM because a few weeks back there was a lot of conversation regarding the 1960s and what could be done about a Josie/Mitchell storyline, i.e. they could do a 'one-off' hour-long programme giving us their backstory, costumes and hair were discussed, what was workable and what wasn't, you name it... then lo and behold, within a very short space of time (during our blogging period), the BH team blog appeared, started off with "Hmmmm..." and then went on to say the 1960s were to be filmed in S2 in part so that there is a bit of a flashback storyline there; they must have had an idea we were coming up with suggestions about stuff being doable because we were visualising it....we went through storylines for other stuff and there'd sometimes be a production team post about it right in the middle of our convo's or at the end...so someone either checks it out or feeds back to them.

    I'd be terrified if they put anything in I'd suggested lol... Seriously, I think anyone would be flattered but I can't see it happening....I suppose you never know but I can't see it...all the same, it'd be good to see what they do produce next year...and we're all gagging in anticipation.

  • Comment number 65.

    Eagle: I'm going to buy myself a DVD player and then the Des Rom set if I get enough money, bills come first unfortunately...

    Eacey: Love to see the Des Rom exhibition.....is it London or somewhere else, cos I'd love to go .... love my art, saw Degas exhibition when it came to London about 12 years ago...fabulous

  • Comment number 66.

    Sorry to bang on about this but next week's The Clinic....it'll be the funeral I suppose....I really wish we could get this, missed the epi with the wake which would have been great....why doesn't some TV channel cash in on this? Long as they don't shove it on at 2pm in which case I'd throw a sickie at the same time, same day, every week for an entire series lol work surely wouldn't suspect?

  • Comment number 67.

    Oh ok so there is still hope for me to attend the convension but still gutted about this Halloween special.

    I will try to find out more info about the art exhibition, initially i got the impression they were talking about Birmingham, then Manchester. I will do some research and report back :)

  • Comment number 68.

    Anglo - that's why i god bless the iplayer and sky plus sometimes lol

  • Comment number 69.

    There's a modern pre-raphaelite exhibtion in Stockholm - this is not the brotherhood paintings but from a new artist basing his work on the technologies the brotherhood used. The Tate is continuing their exhibition of the brotherhood paintings - a select few.

    Still searching for the new exhibition....

  • Comment number 70.

    Thanks to BH prod again for another video, we really are spoilt.! Nina a lovely lady, who found out she will be in Nottingham.? Just off to check last blog on Back to the House.....

  • Comment number 71.

    Hey Quinn - Sinead said so on her Twitter page.

    Agreed and concure - thanks BH Prod for the fab new vid. *kisses*

  • Comment number 72.

    ok...not normally in on a Sat but we've watched Srictly ( er..yeh the samba is difficult...!) and then 2nd part of Xfactor... a prog I don't normally see ....
    Adrian Turner and Sinead Keenan make me proud to be Irish..but John and Edward?...and they're from Dublin?....pleaseeeeeeeeee.....nooooooooooo

    Adrian and Russell reading the blog......mmmm not sure about that....and if they do..I've said this before ....they both come across as having a great sense of humour ....they'll have a great laugh about this if they read it.

    We spent a few days in London in the spring with some friends and went to Tate Britain..loved the collection of pre-raphaelites....this was before Des Res was aired....and there were a lot of Rossetti paintings in there. Don't know where this new exhibition will be held but I'm sure it will be worth seeing.

  • Comment number 73.

    Thanks Racey...Saw 2 Sineads on twitter, which one is she.? Ive just cahnged my user name on twitter, now just Brilliantmighty.....Eagle, trying to get in touch with you on YT....(404) on Back to the house blog.I wont be under my BMQ name, but as DW assistant name, if you getmy drift.

  • Comment number 74.

    Brown:: I can't sit through X-factor or anything else like that...it makes my teeth itch with embarrassment...love the latin american dance stuff... nothing for adults here on that score...Bristol needs a kick up the backside when it comes to accessible dance classes for adults, because they're virtually non-existent and you need a car to get to them - hopeless - grrr...would love to take up tap again but can't...for the moment.

    The one thing I miss about London is the arts...best art galleries and more of them (to be expected)...I just used to sit and stare at some of the paintings at the National Gallery if the weather was crap...god, some of the work, utterly brilliant, really do miss that..

    Sounds like you've had a relaxing weekend so far brown, can't say I blame you. Weather is so bad here (driving rain on and off, very strong winds) you can't do much so I've sorted out spare room and done loads of other stuff.. makes me feel very noble!

  • Comment number 75.

    Brilliant: Nina is the nurse George is keen on and now going out with...she got scratched in Epi6 and the general question is....is she or isn't she now a werewolf herself?

  • Comment number 76.

    Brilliant: Sorry, I meant to say that Sinead plays Nina etc etc...I personally think she is a werewolf (probably barking up totally the wrong tree here)....be interesting to see how she transforms...

  • Comment number 77.

    Bloody nora quinn that was a bit cryptic for this time on a saturday night - right so are you the one who's friended me on youtube? With lots of David Tennant (good choice!) videos? Not stalking or anything just tend to look through videos before I confirm people see if I can figure out who they are lol

    Oh and brown - adrian? You been drinking? Lol I actually called him adrian once by accident too :-P dunno why though - its like neil and ian - always get them 2 names mixed up noooo idea why

  • Comment number 78.

    lol brown the twins - I saw em at mums last week they're hilarious - they have the phenomenon known as "irish hair" lol the type of barnett that tells everyone watching that they're from Ireland before they even open their mouths :-P for anyone who doesnt know what I'm on about or has only come across Irishmen who look like Aidan (yeah right lol) then Dylan moran explains it very well on his dvd - the 2nd one I think :-) and it is very true lol - god love Dylan Moran can't wait for his new DVD he's fab

  • Comment number 79.

    Eagle: What Dylan Moran like live? I loved him in Black Books, felt very sorry for Bill Bailey who always copped it lol...I'd love to see Dylan Moran live.

  • Comment number 80.

    Never seen him live would LOVE to really really love to - the only stand up I've seen live is Ed Byrne who did a gig round the corner from my house (that was so exciting lol) and French and Saunders (and I met them after - thats the closest I've ever been to being star struck - what legends!) but I've got Dylan Morans DVDs and he's amazing - absolutely hilarious - I've got black books too which is awesome but I think his stand up's even better.

    Anglo - you ever wanna go see any stand up but have no one to go with - take me! Lol none of my friends will go - well I managed to drag one of my friends to Ed Byrne but only cos it was round the corner - he wouldnt pay for train fare lol and my nan's a huge French and Saunders fan so she (compltely selflessly of course lol) took me to see them at Drury lane for my birthday :-D

    Eagle: Ed Byrne....ooo he's lovely, I've never seen him either but he's extremely funny as well as being verrrry fanciable in a strange sort of way.. I love him on Have I Got News For You & other similar programmes..

    Did he actually do a gig in your/our part of the world?? What in God's name was he doing there? It's a bit back-of-beyond-ish, isn't it?? lol well, we know what it's like there.

    Likewise!

    Haha oh don't challenge me to name comedians I'll be here all night - reckon it'd be my specialist subject if I went on mastermind - hell yeah bring it on boffins! I'd wipe the floor with the lot of em - might not know my periodic table but I can recite Peter Kay's mum wants a bungalow tour word for word! Lol

  • Comment number 85.

    Eagle: Forgotten Peter Kay....love him....remember the wedding sketch?? lol Also love Billy Connelly...did you ever see Billy Connelly's World Tour series...saw the lot, England & Wales, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia...absolutely brilliant..

    I know but the shed (for those of you not from round my way - the engine shed - its the name of the arena/bar type place - we're not THAT remote - he wasn't telling jokes in a barn and no we weren't sat on hay bales...fold away chairs - much much classier lol) is on uni campus so the place was crammed with students...well I was one at the time lol although woman next to me spilt a bottle of VK blue (told you it was classy) on my bag I was not impressed lol but he was great and I was tweeting him before the show cos he asked for suggestions on how to stop people recording the show without sounding like a diva lol and he actually used my suggestion at the gig and it was hilarious :-D

    Trust you anglo you pick one of the few comedians I'm not that familiar with lol my mums a big fan of billy connelly (the woman who supposedly hates stand up comedy lol he's the only one she'll watch) but I never really got that into him not sure why :-S

    Eagle: Sorry, didn't mean to offend, haven't been to that area for many years so I guess it's changed a lot and spread out a bit...wasnt sure what was around for venues, though...but now you've mentioned students there have been inroads into that since the Uni was built a few years back.

    What did you suggest he did Eagle? Sounds good otherwise he wouldn't have put it in his show!

  • Comment number 89.

    Eagle: Just read (87)....your mum has taste lol....B Connolly (I spelt it wrongly before) brilliant....there was a sketch where he talked about different kinds of drunks...you had to be there...classic.

  • Comment number 90.

    Eagle: Just watched Joooos's The Clinic Epi4 Ending again....*bottom lip trembling*.. god he's good...and the acting not bad either lol

    Oh well, getting on a bit so I'm off to bed....sleep well and dream of Big G!

    Oh adn love the wedding sketch too its on now the Dj's "shirts open cos they're bit tan-tastic int afternoon!" Lol you didnt offend dont worry I'm the first to admit this place is...well you know what I call it :-P its a lovely city just nothing much happens thats all - sorta place people come for uni then live their life somewhere more exciting then come back to retire lol there's only about 2 people in the whole place between te ages of 24 and 60 lol

    All I said was that he should really embarrass the person filming and ask them their name so that itd all be on tape and they wouldnt actually want to show the film anywhere lol and he said that someone off his twitter had suggested it and proceeded to reaaaaally lay into her - it was hilarious - video never went up on youtube anyway lol to be fair there were signs everywhere saying no filming and he did warn her twice before he did it and she kept doing it - mortifying for her - hilarious for everyone else lol.

    He was really good about it though - before he started he said that if anyone wanted to take photo's he's more than happy for them to if they do it now and got it out their system lol and did loads of funny poses for us to get pics of lol and then asked if we could not do it cos he's having enough trouble shifting his dvds as it is lol

    Lovely vid from Nina. Didn't give much away though did she. Looking forward to her in the next series. Can't imagine her as a werewolf tho. Do they have female werewolves? There is something very male about werewolves, facial hair,agression and all that,doesn't fit right with the female condition to me. Maybe because George wasn't in full wolf state when he scratched her she will escape. Well maybe?

    I guess we will find out how she got scarred. I have a feeling it was a vamp incident to which Mitchell might have been indirectly involved. My theory is based on that conversation between Mitchell and Nina when talking outside the hosp. She said Mitchell wasn't her type 'well not anymore' Hmmmmm. Maybe reading too much into the remark. Bit thin, but so are all my theories on future plot lines!

    :)

    God didnt realise how long that was I wasnt concentrating :-S

    Big G?

  • Comment number 94.

    Hi Baloo yeah that was one of our theories too - can't wait to find out.

    Sinead did say something about not looking her best and we'll see why come episode 4 - wondering if maybe they'll do a flashback or something to the incident - whatever it was? Just an idea... :-)

    Was thinking about this earlier thought I'd put it on here - on halloween if we're lucky enough to get autographs - isn't the BH DVD a bit dark? You wouldn't see it would you - do you reckon they'd sign the inside or something? Lol or do I think too much :-S

    Think I'm gonna try and get the DVD signed for my nan for Christmas - she absolutely loves it but hasnt bought it because "its too close to christmas to be buying things like that wink wink" lol so think she'd be dead chuffed that she got it and then if she opened it and it was signed aswell... :-D be good wouldn't it.

    Drops in. Just had an amazing night out in London baby. Waiting for train back. I thought I needed a night out that didn't consist of a fangirl stalk-a-thon to balance it all out before Saturday. :D

    I have quite a few jealous mates right now who love AT or just BH. Can't wait... especially to meet the mysterious and lovely EE. :)
