Take a look at this little beauty... CenSSA: The Centre for the Study of Supernatural Activity.

A guy called Lloyd has ambitions to trace vampires, ghosts and werewolves across the country, and is amassing as much research and evidence of their existence as he can.

What do you reckon... utter kook or might he be onto something?

    I don't know whether to take this website seriously or not......

  • Comment number 2.

    Bizarre.....:S

  • Comment number 3.

    Is this you trying to keep us distracted until we find out about the tickets Mr P.?


  • Comment number 4.

    Shambolic, "Disclaimer
    The website you have been looking at is entirely fictional and forms part of the Being Human universe."
    Found it by clicking the "more information" link.

    It's a tie in website. You never seen one before? They add a whole other dimension to a tv show. :)

  • Comment number 5.

    Oo how exciting! Yay so I'm guessing the professor from end of series 1 is a member? :D

  • Comment number 6.

    Let's see, domain owned by the BBC, same font used for video as for the Being Human ones ... could we be seeing an introduction to the 'bad guys' for season 2 as hinted at the end of season 1?

  • Comment number 7.

    Genevieve, Maybe. It would add a bit of weight to the theory that the Professor is some sort of supernatural hunter/ scientist.

    I think he's gonna experiment on Mitchell. The clips in one of the videos a while back looked like they could be suggesting that.

  • Comment number 8.

    Pass...

  • Comment number 9.

    Hmmmm.....ok, so whats the relavance? We've got to read the entire site every day to "get" some of S2? Wonderful.....
    I'm still confused....

  • Comment number 10.

    lol Cieria you know what that probably means... more topless Mitchell! This is making me happy despite ticket anticipation!

  • Comment number 11.

    Genevieve, Yay for topless Mitchell. :)


    ATfan1, usually it's more an optional thing. You can look at it during the season and it has fun things to look at, but you don't /need/ to in order to understand the show.

  • Comment number 12.

    Good good.......cos some shows are like that - unless you follow all the stuff on the web then you wont "get" the show, would cry if they made BH into that sort of thing!

  • Comment number 13.

    ATfan, I'm sure they won't. Like I said it'll mostly likely be optional. just a little but extra for people who want it. :)

  • Comment number 14.

    Oo! New Blog! (saw on Twitter!)
    I think CenSSA could give us some god clues to what's coming up in Series 2!!! can't wait!

  • Comment number 15.

    C - good good. Cos I've read/watched everything thats on there atm, but am sure I'll never be able to keep up!!!!


    BNTW - Yeah, hopefully some S2 clue (or Aidan piccys ;) )

  • Comment number 16.

    *clues

  • Comment number 17.

    Lovely Mr P! Vampire Gone to ground in Sheffield...looks nothing like Mitchell...think I'll be giving him a miss....scratches on a tree? And a ghost....mmmmm.....

    C, Genevieve: Hi again for a short while....

    This is where the human threat is coming from, possibly?...like the idea of Kemp character and this mysterious Professor Jaggat/Jaggart person being a member of a secret (Government?) society into experimentation...it looked like they were experimenting with the male ghost in what looked like a small Hadron collider in the Mayhem preview....

    The more info I get on this next series, the more intrigued I am... there must be one hell of a lot of stuff going on in it, we've been warned about so much coming up...whetting our appetite alright.

  • Comment number 18.

    ATfan, Probably not aidan pics... vampire don't show up on cameras xD maybe some from before he turned. But those would be in black and white.

  • Comment number 19.

    C: Here's a thought....we know Mitchell can't be seen on film or silver-backed objects like mirrors...but can be seen in shop windows, car reflections, and so on....if someone saw him looking in a shop window at his reflection, and took his picture from across the street, would be come out on film then?

  • Comment number 20.

    anglo, ooh interesting question! I think I'd be inclined to think that he wouldn't? I mean whatever it is that means that he can't have his picture taken would still be having an effect. But maybe. It really depends how it works. We'll need to ask Toby some time. lol.

  • Comment number 21.

    (18) Lol....true....my brain doesn't think of these things just MITCHELLLLLLLL.......Aidannnnnn......etc etc etc

  • Comment number 22.

    Ah yes that well know organisation..CenSSA....possibly related to that other well know organisation CeMBPRo ( Centre for Mischievous BeingHuman Production)....

  • Comment number 23.

    ATfan, yeah it can get hard to think properly when the Vampire is involved xD

  • Comment number 24.

    It would be pretty awesome to just see the reflection! Spooky! but mind-bending!!

  • Comment number 25.

    C, that was what I meant by not sure whether to take it seriously, whether it was an actual website or something the BH team had made up, just didn;t word it well!

    Exciting!

  • Comment number 26.

    Genevieve, yeah it would be! Like just having a reflection in your photos but not being able to see what's casting it!! Very spooky.

  • Comment number 27.

    PMSL... I realised straight away it was obviously BH... but gives us another little insight... they must feature in season 2...

  • Comment number 28.

    This is interesting...in Series 2?

  • Comment number 29.

    well the official poster-y thing they've released, the wall on the left has a 'censsa' graffiti tag on it at the bottom, so i'd say it'll be featured!

  • Comment number 30.

    shambolic, yeah it'll probably be a feature. But you won't have to read the website to understand what's going on. Like the Doctor Who UNIT website ect.

  • Comment number 31.

    guessing we won't be finding out about tickets today then :(

  • Comment number 32.

    Yay! I love stuff like this! Got into this with other programmes/ films etc and Misfits did a good job with it so I'm really happy BH have got into it. Off to take a look now. :D

  • Comment number 33.

    I smell Guinevere project, am I right

  • Comment number 34.

    Evening all! My internet connection is extremely slow...just taken me 20 mins to log on!

    This has got me EVEN MORE excited about series 2 now! I'm guessing the humans that are the threat to our trio belong to CenSSA?

    What's all this about experimenting on Mitchell?? No-one is allowed to experiment on Mitchell....no way! lol, pmsl etc!

  • Comment number 35.

    OMG lol i love it :) this is soooo cool!! ty BH :) wowza vvv cool :0 :)

  • Comment number 36.

    Oh so CenSAA figures on THE Poster.well...have to take it seriously then...
    Thinking pointer towards the human threat aka Prof Jaggart(?) ( does anyone know how to spell this name..)
    Anglo: interesting ideas ...CERN like machine on BH2Trailer poss connected to this 'organisation'.... looked like an MRI scanner to me....So the humans who intend harm ( or maybe they inadvertently cause harm..not unlike humankind) want to 'examine' supernaturals and then do what?...tap into their 'abilities'.?.maybe the machime sucks the 'ability' out of the supernatural so that it can be ..used in some way by CenSAA ?

  • Comment number 37.

    But is CenSSA trying to find and learn about our 3 or hunt them down and harm them?

  • Comment number 38.

    Wonder if they'll extend it to Twitter..

    I'm a happy bunny both boys in bed with no arguments. :) Now I have absolutely no idea what to do with myself though.

  • Comment number 39.

    Awww bless them :P
    Umm.....crack open a bottle of wine & watch something decent on telly? Or do something productive like christmas cards? lol :P

  • Comment number 40.

    I read somewhere that Prof Jaggat intends to make ghosts move on through, cure werewolves and exterminate vampires - anyone know where I got this from? Im sure I didnt dream it.

  • Comment number 41.

    Why do the vamps have to be exterminated??? :(

    Lol I haven't heard that but so much passes mr by these days its probably not a dream :P

  • Comment number 42.

    *me

  • Comment number 43.

    Right, i'm off for the evening. Night all xxx

  • Comment number 44.

    Oh I love it!!
    I was totally addicted to the experience created with season 2 TW when we had the game and all the interactive websites.
    I'm thrilled to have another of my shows go with this kind of background work especially with BH as not only is the show awesome, but I know all you guys involved in this kinda stuff will do it well and make it fun
    Buzzed beyond words

  • Comment number 45.

    lorrabe, you played that torchwood game too? It was so awesome wasn't it? I love the fact that it felt so real!

  • Comment number 46.

    Evening peeps...mmmm CenSAA..thought like others this was just a 'Blog Team are bored' moment...until the poster enlarged on Twitter and name on wall..hint or what Blog Team!
    Like ideas by others about the machine we saw in the Trailer we saw at Nottingham....our heroes and others in danger of being 'captured' and maybe their essence distilled into the machine to be used to ..enhance humans?....ok..no wackier than other ideas!

  • Comment number 47.

    hello guys how is everyone? good weekend? still no news yet then about the tickets!!!!.. the censsa thing at the top amd i being thick cuz i click on it and it does nothing

  • Comment number 48.

    ah ah got it now

  • Comment number 49.

    So there's a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost...


    But what about the Type 4? Type 5? Type 23? Why are they, purely coincidentally, only studying the three types of supernatural beings our lead characters represent? At the moment it looks like a very shallow off-shoot, but it could well get a lot more interesting.

  • Comment number 50.

    Hello everybody...just got in and my stomach is playing havoc...no idea how long I'll be on here...

    Joooos: (34) Hi...the only peeps who can experiment on Mitchell are US!!! We'll soon see Kemp and Professor J off...ha! They're no match for us ATfangirls hehe...

    Dorina:: (36) Hello again...So....S2 is getting closer and we're getting a few more bite-sized pieces to keep us occupied and thinking and blogging.... and thinking quite a few things to do with Mitchell...

    Brown (46) Didn't know what to make of it either untill Cieria showed me the way...unsure who Lloyd is, unless he's one of the new characters....the more they tell me, the worse I get!! I just want more... How are you by the way..

  • Comment number 51.

    Type 4 is probably zombies. They are definitely introducing them.

    Do you think we still have a chance with mermaids? ;)

  • Comment number 52.

    Type 5: Mermaids???

  • Comment number 53.

    Of course, it's a natural progression. Vamps, ghosts, werewolves, mermaids... maybe type 6 is your every day Goblin just to bring back the realism. ;)

  • Comment number 54.

    Super: Hello/evening...how are you now?...type 4 are zombies...incidentally, can zombies be killed? I got the impression that unless they were burned to death, probably not...I mean how can you kill the undead?

    Think I'll give the mermaids a miss...zombies...the amazing production and writing would have to transmit to a whole new level of brilliance in order to make zombies work...they can do it, but now, in order to make it even more believeable? And they've really something to live up to know...firstly, they produce one of the best, if not the best, series of its kind, unique, a one-off...it sets the scene for an even better S2 which we are assured is going to be so much darker/better and will really pull us in....how are they going to better it? They've set themselves a real task there..and I'm sure they can pull it off.

  • Comment number 55.

    The mermaids thing is an old joke.

    I'm not sure that zombies are that different to vamps being all undead and everything. Maybe a spin off from the vamps. Like you can have vamps that aren't made correctly and go a bit funny/weird so could be to do with that.

  • Comment number 56.

    Ooh so we were right then! Wahey!

    Ahh this is gonna be a long old catch up lol thanks Mr P think we needed something to keep us distracted...I've been doing that silly "work" thing that everyone keeps banging on about (severely overated if you ask me) but this is much better...

  • Comment number 57.

    Super (55) lol...I remember the mermaid joke you mentioned it on Twi...who suggested that?

  • Comment number 58.

    Just had a look at that website - nice work Mr P (assuming it was you who made it - if not kudos to whichever member of our lovely blog team did) You're so good to us! And so Annie gets her job in the pub then? Good stuff :-) right twitter catch up, email catch up, then back to here to catch up...

  • Comment number 59.

    Erm.. no one remembers actually anglo. Just one of those silly things.

    I'm gonna watch ugly betty have a second glass of wine (maybe a bad move) and come back for a gossip.

  • Comment number 60.

    Super I'm up for a gossip if I'm not on just text me I'll be about

  • Comment number 61.

    Gotta go...it's hit me all of a sudden...night Super and all...post tomorrow x

  • Comment number 62.

    Well the mermaid thing might work.... she could get caught up the river... bit like we now and then get a whale in the thames...

    AT mentioned why exterminate vampires... well I think it's the fact that ghosts and vampires have already lived and died so they shouldn't be here (in theory... in practise Mitchell very much belongs here!!! :-D) but werewolves are injured not killed... I see this might cause trouble as I think George might be very tempted by the idea of being "cured" but I don't think Annie would really fancy going to the otherside... not yet anyway.

    Still say zombies would not work...

  • Comment number 63.

    zombies could work in a couple of ways as far as my imagination goes. But we'll see what BH has come up with.

  • Comment number 64.

    Lol so not much actual discussing of this then? I dont think there will be til we find out about tickets will there?

    As for the bottom picture - sorry I just assumed that was Annie because it looks like her and I always assumed that even though she looked human to Mitchell/George/eventually everyone else she wouldn't be as solid on camera/in mirrors etc.

    Hmm I haven't read all of the comments just skim read but has anyone said anything about "created 2009" and "created 2007" etc at first glance I just assumed it meant "discovered" but then they would have put that wouldn't they? By "created" maybe they have actually made them? Artificially - in the preview we saw that big machine and Kemp encouraging some fella to get into it saying something along the lines of "in 5 minutes nothing with change, yet everything will change" so perhaps they are experimenting with "real" supernaturals to discover how to create them artificially...either to figure out how to have "eternal life" (Mitchell and Annie are kind of immortal...well not really but you know what I mean) or just because they can - I mean Scientists but years of work into cloning a sheep for gods sake - possibly THE most pointless thing ever - we're not exactly short of them are we?! Anyway I digress...they're my thoughts for now - I'll have a proper look at comments and website when I'm a bit more awake and have more brain power lol.

    Although I doubt anyones read that because nobody really cares til they find out the tickets do they lol

  • Comment number 65.

    Sorry I didn't mean to do too much of an Eagle epic straight away lol but it's been a while since we've had anything proper to discuss! Thats only one of my many theories already lol I can't help it it's just how my mind works!

  • Comment number 66.

    Yup we are on strike till we get ticket information.

    Don't understand the created in comment in terms of the new site.

    I do understand the recreation of the undead. Like how cloning went disastrously wrong so would artificial creation of vamps/ghosts= zombies. That's what I was thinking of before.

  • Comment number 67.

    on the little video it comes up "type 3 created 2009" or something like that

  • Comment number 68.

    Yeah it goes: "Name, Age, Location, Stauts, Created"

  • Comment number 69.

    Lol Super just caught up a bit more...whats type 7 Leprechauns? Unicorns? Chavs?

  • Comment number 70.

    ATFan- Mitchell pictures!! Surely CenSSA will have to have an indepth Case Study on him! haha.

    Going to have another look at that webstie, trying to distract myself from thinking about whether or not i'm going to get a Willy Wonka email with the special golden tickets!

  • Comment number 71.

    No, no, no! It goes 7 Leprechauns, 8 Unicorns 9 Fairies 10 chavs. But the 9 and 10 are cross overs/hybrids. Fairies are potty mouth chavs with wings.

    Right so re-watched without children surrounding me. So Tim was created in Nov this year, last seen on a bus in Bristol. *dramatic horror music here*

    So you reckon 'they' have actually made them? OK interesting.

  • Comment number 72.

    Lol sorry Super I now just have an image of a leprechaun with fairy wings riding a unicorn wearing a white tracksuit and burbery cap...

  • Comment number 73.

    That's just ridiculous. Let's focus on reality here- the cloning/recreation of vamp/ghosts resulting in zombie babies.



    *sniggers*

  • Comment number 74.

    I love that poster - it has so many details that we can see now they've given us the big version - we all saw the fish and chips (I think its chicken and chips but everyone reckons its fish so I'll go with that :-D) the tea bags the bag of blood etc but the cenSSA thing is cool and the "give blood" badge/sign are a funny little touch :-)

    Although poor George - how long since he got scratched and his shirt and jacket are still ripped :-P

    Ooh and I notice Annie's wearing that jade bracelet Lenora and Russell told us so much about lol (Aidan was too busy scoffing the sweets)

  • Comment number 75.

    Lol yeah Super much more likely that...

    Any thoughts on the actual logo? Can't really see anything hmm

  • Comment number 76.

    The logo is like a duck pointing East. That's as much as I've got. ;)
    Reminds me of the symbol of the male/female symbol but completely wrong. Tell me your ideas. :)

  • Comment number 77.

    West even.

  • Comment number 78.

    LOL I just checked out their youtube channel - apparently his hobbies include "Tracking supernaturals, reading science & technology blogs, fishing, cycling, sudoku" lmao what have you done today? - well sighted a couple of type 2's, whizzed round the block with the local kids then caught a few tiddlers and finished the "Sun's fun" Sodoku...well he's nothing if not ecclectic

    Super - I got "someone trying to draw a dart board on a spyrograph and going a bit wrong" thats about it as yet...

  • Comment number 79.

    Although I'm thinking theres 3 "types" and 3 circles - might be something in that I suppose...or I'm just clutching at straws lol

  • Comment number 80.

    Super you so just went "never eat shredded wheat" didn't you? Lol

  • Comment number 81.

    Possibly 3 circles.... I'm all set for getting the reward to find Tim though. It's as yet an unspecified amount.

  • Comment number 82.

    Huh? Have I missed something? Ohhh the vampire fella? Looks a bit like my boss lol

  • Comment number 83.

    Eagle stop reading my mind you know I hate that. Just like how I know you are currently thinking of Dorian Gray and your head board. ;)

  • Comment number 84.

    wait thought his name was kyle? Oh is this a misfits thing again Super?

  • Comment number 85.

    Lol Super sorry vampiric abilties and all that :-P Oh and whats all this about you meeting a vampire in Notts? (saw your tweet earlier but had to go and be sociable :-P)

  • Comment number 86.

    Ok this "kyle" fella - don't reckon it could be Ivan? Doesnt look much like Paul Rhys lol but it says he's foreign and "ivan" sounds foreign...probably not - just a thought.

  • Comment number 87.

    Erm it was a pee take of the Mayhem festival when we met the cast.
    Tim was in the poster on the vid.
    I took a mental note of Kyle as a possible Ivan. We'll see..

  • Comment number 88.

    The logo reminds me of something and I just can't put my finger on it...I'm sure I've seen it before

  • Comment number 89.

    Oh ok yep yep and yep - I'm with you now lol sorry - it's been a long day!

  • Comment number 90.

    Hmm it says he was last seen in Bristol...finding a vampire in Bristol :-S not liking those odds lol

  • Comment number 91.

    exactly so I doubt it's 'them' making ppl just vamps on the loose in the Bristol.. of all places. Night x

  • Comment number 92.

    Could be those vampires that give Mitchell and George a bit of greif... being male I don't think it's mitchell... I mean he seems to prefer the ladies, doesn't he? or maybe it's those eclectic tastes coming in.... he he!

    I wonder if the other characters will feature... you know the other werewolf and the ghost?

  • Comment number 93.

    The ghost should feature. Then Annie would get a friend! She needs more friends. Poor thing.

  • Comment number 94.

    Hi Sweet and Cieria..

    SweetLyssa: (92) Don't know if you read the blurb on the ticket link but it seems that the married vampires, Daisy and Ivan, give Mitchell a bit of hassle...Daisy has other things on her mind however, so I'm thinking if there's a bit of, er, action in the bedroom area, Mitchell is going to be picked on a bit if her vampire hubby gets wind of it...watch this space!

    Cieria (93)...In the same blurb (I think) doesn't it say that Annie gets very confident and goes for a bar job, much to the concern of M & G...perhaps she meets friends there...better still, perhaps she meets that male ghost there, thinks he's a friend and then it goes a bit pear-shaped what with him being in the mini-Hadron machine ("nothing will change yet everything will change")...

  • Comment number 95.

    it would be nice to see a more confident Annie after all the stuff she went through in series one and i must say the website is brilliant can't help feeling that it might be a hint as to the fact that there are more than just our three supernaturals out there and although we've been told the main threat comes form humans in series two it might still include some kind of threat from within in the world of the supernaturals and that we must not forget that it is not just our three fav supernaturals that will come under threat if they were exposed!!
    not sure any of this makes sense coz just thiking out loud!!

  • Comment number 96.

    anglo... yeah I saw that... maybe that's why he ends up half naked, tied to a chair... he he!!!

  • Comment number 97.

    My memory from Nottingham is that the zombies are likely to feature in BH3 assuming that gets commissioned ( although Toby seems to think it has been agreed).

    So CenSAA wants to find, understand and study Supernaturals..well , the big question then is..And Then What?

    See ex Police Chief from Glasgow now on list as missing type 1...and isn't Kyle a Scottish name rather than Turkish ?...so maybe Scottish connections going on....

    BHProductions having a lot of fun with this.....keep it coming!

  • Comment number 98.

    SweetLyssa: Don't....the thought of Aidan tied to a chair naked, half-naked or fully clothed is enough to make my mind race...hehe

    Dorina: Hi there....All they said about the zombies are that they had been suggested but as there was a lot of face-pulling from some audience members I'm unsure whether they're going to take it up.... I guess it depends in which context...

    You mention the Scottish connection possibility....Mitchell did live in Glasgow for a while...he mentioned it when talking to Herrick or someone in S1 when he reminisced about a Scottish guy having an issue with him being Irish and saying something about being killed or dying, and Mitchell says "I thought 'yeah, that can be arranged'"...

    It's amazing the amount of things I can remember where Mitchell is concerned....!

  • Comment number 99.

    A thought...

    Eagle: You mentioned about creating ghosts, vampires and werewolves and that CenSSA might be doing that....in order for that to happen, they'd need to murder (how else do you create a ghost)...so if that's hinted at in S2, we are in for one hell of a series of 8 episodes, not 6....what a treat!

    It also says in the Archive section on the CenSSA website that there will be updates...I guess we'll either be told about them or will have to check it regularly for any further info on it....BH prod certainly know how to keep us keen and make us work for it, or just be even dafter than we already are lol :D

  • Comment number 100.

    I still think Lucy is bait for Mitchell...or someone else is...or Lucy truly thinks she is doing good if she's involved with CenSSA (and she may not be), or she's unwittingly sacrificed (perhaps she's the one who dies) because she gets involved with Mitchell and CenSSA find out, kidnap her until Mitchell gives himself up for investigation....where did those police come in, btw? The Library Books bit? is that for revenge over Herrick's death, and is the missing senior policeman in Scotland involved in that? Sorry, it's all pouring out now...! I must stop..
