Being Human Series 5 - Brand New Villain!

Post categories:

BH Insider | 15:23 UK time, Tuesday, 14 August 2012



Phil Davis

If you've been keeping your eyes peeled for all things BH5, you might have seen this breaking news about a brand new character in the show.

The inside scoop from the writers paints a pretty evil picture...

"Captain Hatch has seen it all, at least he reckons he has, and whatever it is, he doesn't much like it. Stuck in a failing body, in a wheelchair, in a dismal seaside hotel, things aren't exactly sunny side up."

"Hatch embodies the worst in humanity - he's bitter, manipulative, obsequious and cruel. And beneath his decrepit exterior there lies within him a dark and toxic secret that could rattle your soul with fear."

Sounds pretty interesting doesn't it? Even more exciting is that Captain Hatch will be played by BAFTA nominated actor Phil Davis, who you'll probably recognise from other BBC dramas like Bleak House, Sherlock and Merlin.

Here's what he had to say about his new role:

"I don't want to give too much away about the character at this early stage but I can reveal that he is marvellously disgusting."

So, a great new disgustingly evil character to look forward to. We can't wait to see what Captain Hatch gets up to. Have you got any ideas what he might have in store? Let us know!

More good and evil gossip as we get it!

    Welcome to BH Mr Phil Davis ;)

    Hello all,

    Ooh, shiny new blog post.

    Very excited about series 5, Captain Hatch sounds most intriguing.

  • Comment number 4.

    So does this mean we have a new blogmaster/-mistress/-sexless-alien-lifeform who's a bit shy? ;)

  • Comment number 5.

    Hi 0po!

    Disgustingly evil...mmmm, I like that. Anything to stir up HH once again!

    As for anonymous blogperson: don't be shy, we'd love to meet you & thanks for a new blog post - it's been ages!

  • Comment number 6.

    OMG! New Blog Post! Many thanks to the PTB and the lovely caretakers looking after us.

    "Captain Hatch has seen it all, at least he reckons he has, and whatever it is, he doesn't much like it. Stuck in a failing body, in a wheelchair, in a dismal seaside hotel, things aren't exactly sunny side up."

    "Hatch embodies the worst in humanity - he's bitter, manipulative, obsequious and cruel. And beneath his decrepit exterior there lies within him a dark and toxic secret that could rattle your soul with fear."

    WHICH HOTEL IS HE STUCK IN??????????

    Thank you for the discussion topic! I feel dizzy with excitement now!

    And if you are reading this from a magazine - You Know Who You Are - drop in and say 'hello' on the Blog!

    "More good and evil gossip as we get it!"

    *faints*

    EWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!

    Hi all! Long time no see. This new villian sounds intriguing, and it's great to have a new post. Interesting that they're still using Rebecca's account - it's like something the mig would do.

  • Comment number 8.

    Hello! A new blog and a juicy snippet of news. I can imagine Capt Hatch living somewhere like Fawlty Towers, in some rundown seaside resort, living off his army pension. And Phil Davis is a brilliant actor so I'm sure that he will play a very convincing villain.

  • Comment number 9.

    New blog!! What a sight for sore eyes!!! And the new baddie already makes a good impression for how he is discribed.

    Why is he such a sourpuss? Hm, maybe he had a werwolf or vampire encounter in the past and he wanted it to be "cured" from some disease, but they declined and he was left for dead and instead his disease put him in the wheelchair.

    Why did he end up in this hotel? He is kept alive, because he knows something important and to have a means of pressure for someone important.

    What is he up to? Probably revenge.

  • Comment number 10.

    hello everyone!

    WA-HAY!!! a new blog, im made up!

    this captain hatch guy sounds good and Phil Davis is a great actor, really convincing and 'real'

    im guessing hes in a wheelchair because of an accident mabe involving a supernatural and he fought them off? and he wants his revenge......???????

    ooooo i cant wait!

  • Comment number 11.

    What do plots and broken eggs have in common? Maybe the fact that both are Hatched. I'm off to work now but a thought of the evil the restrained are capable of is sometimes truly horrifying.

    So my thoughts on this - If Hatch is part of MiG then a simple fact is this if he has enough respect and power like a cancer underneath the very skin he will corrupt the loyal as easy as breathing. Now will Rook be the one played?

    Is it his search to become something more to live on that will drive him. Or will the secret hold the key to something that was done by the MiG something that was done to keep secrets?

    Looks to be fun.

  • Comment number 12.

    p.s mabe because hes called captain he was in something like the army or mabe he worked for people like Mr Rook and thats how his accident happened- working against the supernaturals?

    i love the speculation!!! ha ha

  • Comment number 13.

    p.s.s mabe Mr Rook will visit him in this hotel? prehaps they once worked together??

    i really must stop now!!!

  • Comment number 14.

    Hello Blog! Hello new blog post!
    I don't usually squeee, but in this case I couldn't stop myself :)
    This is brilliant news. Mr Davis is a *legend*. Who knows, maybe the lovely Lenora gave him the fast track on BH during Fast Girls.

    Speculation is always futile, but you've got to give it a go. So. Hmmm. Maybe he's a human who wants to live forever and resorts to really icky, nasty ways to try????

    Can't wait to find out.

  • Comment number 15.

    Ooooooo coool. Thanks Manc for tweeting this otherwise i wouldn't have a clue...

  • Comment number 16.

    4 Jac_E Squeeee! *waving madly* So lovely to see you!

    Oh I think he is human. I always wanted a human in Being Human. This may be a case of - never hope you get what you WISH for! He sounds a nasty piece of goods.

    11. oooh look at that! Ewan is on the road, working... I hope you change yer socks! Yesss.. what about if Captain Hatch were a retired member of the MiG... and that is why he is so bitter and twisted... perhaps *they* laughed at him, scoffed even... that would turn a man sour. But now Mr Rook needs to pay a visit to Captain Hatch and ask his advice....

  • Comment number 17.

    Squuueeeeeeee! New Blog Yayayayayayay *does cartwheels into blog*

    I can't blooming wait to see Captain Hatch on our screens, I'm a huge fan of Phil Davis, he always brings so much to the characters he plays this will be truly epic!

    *salutes new Blog Master/Mistress*

  • Comment number 18.

    Sorry to see that this Blog Post is not included in the BBC Blogs HomePage - Yet again.

  • Comment number 19.

    Phil Davis will be a fantastic addition to this series' cast. He always gives 1000% and i can't wait to see him in action opposite Damien, Michael and Kate. He reminds me of Lee Ingleby in intensity. Can't wait to see this. Hurry up and film it pleeeeeassseeee! (yes, i know, impatient, i don't know the meaning of patience...)

  • Comment number 20.

    Hello everyone. :-) I apologise about my very long absence but I've been stuck on the backside and i can only get on the blog on my phone. But i have missed you all!

    Captain Hatch sounds a very intriguing character. I think he has something to do with the mig. I can't wait for series 5!! :-)

    A big hello to our new blog master/mistress. :-) Welcome to the madness that will come in the next few months!!

  • Comment number 21.

    @deep curtsey to the blog-mother-ship

    words, what do they mean, why are they chosen?

    dark secret: could be in all fairness the secret that supernaturals live among us

    but why toxic?

    why the word toxic?

    something to do with annie's bacteriae? it is spreading?

    toxic

    Adjective: Poisonous.

    Noun: Poisonous substances.

    Synonyms: adjective. poisonous - venomous - toxicant - virulent - noxious
    noun. poison - venom - bane - toxicant

    adj.
    1. Of, relating to, or caused by a toxin or other poison: a toxic condition; toxic hepatitis.
    2. Capable of causing injury or death, especially by chemical means; poisonous: food preservatives that are toxic in concentrated amounts; a dump for toxic industrial wastes. See Synonyms at poisonous.
    n.
    A toxic chemical or other substance.

    Late Latin toxicus, from Latin toxicum, poison, from Greek toxikon, poison for arrows, poison, from neuter of toxikos, of a bow, from toxon, bow, from Old Persian *taxa-, an arrow

    hence a poisonous contaminating secret.
    We know vamps are contaminants like WW. One scratch, one bite. One does nor need to empty the decanter...

    Hatch knows the secret, and can spill the beans... without fearing the MIGs!!!

  • Comment number 22.

    I guess I'm the only one not happy about the casting of Phil Davis as the new Big Bad in Being Human for series 5?

    I'd rather have saw someone closer to Hal's age to be a real threat, physically and mentally. And to cast him as a human no less! Oh well!!!!

  • Comment number 23.

    Yay! A new blog post :-D *does a dance*

    Phil Davis to play the new villain? I can't wait...but just what sort of villain is he going to be? Human, or a supernatural creature we've not met before?

    Eeeek - I can't wait till next year to see *starts counting the days*

  • Comment number 24.

    *skips into blog and bounces around the room*
    New Blog Post!!! How exciting, it means we haven't been forgotten and left here without a Blog Person. Please step out and let us know who you are, we don't bite (well not that much) :D
    I'm excited we have a new big name actor in BH and that Phil Davis is such a good actor but I don't like him. I've only ever seen him play bad guys and he plays them so well that he really freaks me out. So for a big bad in BH then he is an amazing actor because he will scare me but I just don't like him. I know I'm such a little girl being scared by an actor who I am sure is lovely in person :)
    It doesn't stop me wishing the show was already on our TV screens again though!!

    ps. New chapter of Just Another Life :)

  • Comment number 25.

    Well I adore Phil Davis and so was thrilled...weeks ago....when the news of his role in Being Human 5 first broke (in fact, Phil mentioned it himself on Twitter weeks ago) .
    Now...I don't wish to appear ungrateful to the Being Human Blog Editor ( whoever it is now), but all the above blurb was already published last week in various interviews. I remember a time when the Being Human Bloggers were the first to hear all Being Human related news on this blog ....it seems those days are over....:(
    ....and I'm very much looking forward to finding out the dark and toxic secret lying within Captain Hatch....

  • Comment number 26.

    Ahh! This feel nice! *settles into shiny new blog*

    Brilliant casting, again, for our beloved BH.

    Can't wait to see what Capt Hatch has in store for our trio.
    Is he human or supernatural - who knows?

    Exciting!!!

  • Comment number 27.

    Ahhh!!! So excited. I can't wait.

  • Comment number 28.

    My memory my not be what it used to be,but Honolulu Heights does not appear the be wheelchair friendly,no internal lift or stairlift or ramps outside.
    All that aside Phil Davis is a cracking actor and director.

  • Comment number 29.

    Ooh! New blog! Thank god, the other one was getting cluttered.

    @Vicki I agree with you there, he's a great actor but he plays really scary and chilling villains, especially in Sherlock. This Captain Hatch won't be a villain that we 'love to hate' like Herrick, he will be a villain that we hate (in a good way) and I think it will be really interesting to see him in the BH world

    EEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!!!! I'm all excited now (as if I wasn't before) only 5 months, 19 days, 13 hours and 5 minutes to go!

    (my predicted air date is Sunday the 3rd of Feb)

    @super-blog-man
    @bat-mods
    @bloggers

    good morning

    love and hate? maybe the concept of loving to hate or hating to love a villain is wrong or loopsided
    maybe a villain is simply to be feared...

    just thinking

  • Comment number 31.

    Can you imagine the Occupational Therapy assessment for Honolulu Heights...

    "Hi...ooh it's quite a steep hill..."

    "Yes it is...and?"

    "Right...steep stairs too...I'll just measure up...oh you've got an attic..."

    "Yes..."

    "Right...have you thought of a through-floor lift...there are a lot of obstacles in this house...a lot of bits of wood lying about the place..."

    "Well...I'm not giving up me whittling...never know when..."

    "Yes...quite...oh...now I remember this house...loads of police got killed here..."

    "Yes...can we move along..."

  • Comment number 32.

    Is Captain Hatch, (match, dispatch...sorry, couldn't resist it) the owner of HH? Or just stuck in another depressing seaside town...there are a lot of them... ;)

  • Comment number 33.

    angry old guy in a wheelchair near water...anyone else reminded of Stephen King's Bag of Bones
    No?
    Just me then ;)

  • Comment number 34.

    Or the creator of the Cybermen in Doctor Who...

    Don't think it'll go that way though, Opositiv... :)

  • Comment number 35.

    @Scotch_Mist Oooh, yes that guy, what was his name again?
    How come guys in wheelchairs are so often bad guys?

  • Comment number 36.

    following clues

    - army captain - retired - in a wheelchair - bitter - dark secret
    bitter because - in a wheel chair ? wound sustained in the army? honourable/dishonourable discharge? feeling his injury should have been recognized by an award? middle rank officer- unfit for higher rank? or injured whilst young - injury sustained whilst young and made aware of something he should not have known. Did one of Mr Rook's clean ups turn up to be unsuccessful? toxic secret : poisonous against him or the MIGs or other humans. People who have been lied too for ages do not take well to it and want revenge.

  • Comment number 37.

    Some thirty years ago, young Captain Hatch witnessed something he should not have been privy to. Did his job none the less ending up in a wheelchair. Did not accept to be manipulated by the MIGs. Tried to inform humanity, was cleverly misrepresented as a 'nutter' and now harbours a revengeful soul.

    Ticks the boxes: seen it all, at least he reckons he has, and whatever it is, he doesn't much like it. Failing body, in a wheelchair, in a dismal seaside hotel, things aren't exactly sunny side up.
    "Bitter, manipulative, obsequious and cruel. Decrepit exterior within him a dark and toxic secret that could rattle your soul with fear"

    Rook says he can make people disappear in a puff of smoke; calling Hatch a fool and dupe has rendered him inoffensive... apparently.

    Maybe Davis's character is not the villain at all; but an unlikely ally set on revenge against Rook. The enemies of my enemies are my friends...

  • Comment number 38.

    evil captain Hatch

    but Evil like Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder...

    Is Captain Hatch the ennemy of our trinity or the MIGs?

    Evil does not mean you are the villain...

  • Comment number 39.

    I would love it if captain hatch was human! It would be very exciting to see from a human perspective for a change :)

    The MiG are human too arn't they? Surely Hal would have been able to tell if they were something supernatural? Although it did take him a while to realise yvonne was a succubus.......

    SU :) x

    *drags in rocking-chair, sits down, lights up pipe and swigs gin*

    It's lovely and clean in here!

    Afternoon All! Afternoon Mods!

    27. Hello Michelle - are you the Michelle that went to Cardiff for the weekend a couple of weeks ago? If so, how did it go? If not, sorry. :)

    Captain Hatch is in a hotel. A HOTEL. So, he's not in HH. You would be surprised at how many elderly people live in hotels in this country.

    Question: Which hotel is he in? Where could these scenes be filmed? Hmmm

    What is the 'dark and toxic secret' of our dear Captain Hatch?

    He is human, he is in a wheel-chair, he is stuck in a hotel.

    Option 1: a 'dark and toxic secret' from his past?

    he was a serial killer?


    Option 2: a 'dark and toxic secret' which is intrinsic to him now in the present.

    he has some supernatural power, perhaps?

    I'm still thinking about his title - Captain. It's all a bit 'Agatha Christie' to have a gentleman in a wheelchair in a seaside hotel who is referred to as Captain. Unless anyone from a coastal area can say that this is not the case?

    So, I don't think his title can be military - I'm leaning towards nautical now.
    But being a land-locked Manc - I have no idea how common it is to use titles like 'Captain'.

    Does anyone know?

  • Comment number 41.

    Very good news about Phil Davis – he’s a fabulous actor!

    So Captain Hatch, ex-military...

    Interesting the way the release has been phrased – while it says he embodies the worse of humanity it doesn’t say anywhere he is actually human...

    He’s confined to a wheelchair in a failing body but has a dark toxic secret...
    He will rise? Literally?

    It’s tempting to wonder if he was one of Sasha’s co-zombies, one that slipped through the net and found a way to avoid totally decomposing but I suspect – and hope! – he’s something new. Maybe he's something that's even older than Mr Snow...

    I like to see BH mix up the cast and have actors of all ages, people like Mark Williams, Donald Sumpter, Nicola Walker and of course Jason Watkins all brought great things to the show and the younger actors noticeably raised their game when working with them!

  • Comment number 42.

    Yay! A new blog. Very exciting!! Who wrote it? Do we have a new Webmistress/Master???

    I think Phil will play a wonderful baddie. I've just re-watched his scenes in Bleak House, where he played Smallweed. He'll be a great asset to the BH family - and to the young cast, as they'll learn a lot from him.

  • Comment number 43.

    30 - Su - Hiya Su - how's the tattoo healing? I would also like Captain Hatch to be Human. Some of the most evil (and my favourite characters I loved to hate in Being Human were human - Owen, Kemp, Lucy, Nancy Drew....)

  • Comment number 44.

    @MANCVAMP

    Nancy was smug and dedicated, She was a police person investigating the slaughter of 20 persons; she did a remarkable work and discovered who the killer was. Evil? ... because of smugness???
    You may not like her, but evil she is not!

    @aqua

    Hatch is reported as army captain in numerous websotes: cultbox, sfx, digital spy. retired captain, retired army etc etc

  • Comment number 45.

    41 - *puffs on pipe and looks thoughtfully at Aqua* True, very true.

    Is he actually human?

    Question: We know he is in a wheel-chair. Soooo.. this has never been sorted out in BH - would (or wouldn't) someone with broken bones 'heal' as they were turned into a vampire 'á la Anne Rice' or would he remain as s/he was in life - in a wheel-chair?

    I still don't get the title 'Captain' - sorry - could he perhaps be an ageing rock star and that was his stage name? It would honestly make more sense to me...

    Totally agree with you there Aqua. The mix of age groups that are in each series of BH sets it apart - and they always do it so well.

    And I have seen 4 very young actors (both male and female) say that they are going to be in S5 this year over yonder dark side... so I'm sure there will be something for everyone.


    *nods and rocks*

  • Comment number 46.

    @billy bunter- i had no idea that the hotel could be HH? it never entered my mind.

    so could Cpt H be looking for a room and ends up coming across HH and staying there?

    its all guessing games isnt it.... *steam coming from my ears*

    @manc vamp he could be a Cpt of the sea yes.

    what if he was once Cpt of a ship that was prehaps carrying vamps (like the OO last series) and has an encounter where he has to fight them- hence the wheelchair, i think Mr Rook will want him on his side tho.

    i hate waiting!!!!! i want to watch it now!! boo-hoo

  • Comment number 47.

    another nugget about Hatch

    'I am busy researching now'

    about what? army? retired army officers? some new sort of supernatural?

  • Comment number 48.

    @manc

    when you are 'turned' vampire you stay as you are, you do not get older, but you do not get younger
    when deaf Nana was turned , she remained deaf in season 1

    if you are turned paraplegic, you stay paraplegic
    nerve damage does not heal beause you are made into a vampire while other body organs can get repaired like the one Hal suffered in Orsha ???

  • Comment number 49.

    42 - Laura - New Blog Master/Mistress. Nope - I don't know and we won't know until they get here. Speculation is useless this time round. The PTB are all being very secretive this time round... But *waving hello madly* if they are reading this...

    If, as Billy Bunter suggests, HH IS where Captain Hatch ends up... well.... amazing! But isn't HH a B&B? The writers say that he is in a hotel? So I ruled out HH...

  • Comment number 50.

    Afternoon Bloggers! Afternoon Mods! Afternoon person who is not really Rebecca Denton but is saying that he/she is - for new entry in blog! Phew - that was long....

    I think Hatch is human. Remember Bernie? Although he was run down and dying, after he was *turned* he was fine - no broken bones. I think you are free of any illness when you are vamped. Mitchell offered to *cure* Josie of her cancer too, I think, but she in the end saved him.

  • Comment number 51.

    -48 @SAINTIXE56 @MancVamp
    Maybe only acute injuries are healed if someone is recruited. Like the wound the lance left in Hal or like the bite from the recruiting vampire? but if an injury is older and the body has already repaired it to the best of its abilities then it stays that way. Like older spinal injuries or loss of legs that would confine someone to a wheelchair?

  • Comment number 52.

    Who ran the betting shop last year? Was is Marigolds? Or Make_mine_a kiaora?

    Okay. So I am going to put 10 (yes, 10) cupcakes on Captain Hatch being an ageing rock star with a 'dark and toxic' past somewhat akin to that of *whispers* Gary Glitter. Yep. Early days I know... but I expect great odds on THAT bet!

  • Comment number 53.

    hmm difference of opinion there about being turned into a vampire...

    50. Sassshhhhaaaaaa! *twirls Sasha's moustache* ?:^{

    Oh yes! Bernie! He must have had quite a few broken bones after being hit by that car.

    51 Opo - yes, you are right - those wounds were also healed.

    So are we saying that Captain Hatch couldn't be a vampire?

    What about a ghost?

  • Comment number 54.

    44 - Saint - I said, " I LOVED to hate her! Loved her really. I know I tried to have her beheaded on the Blog on Bastille day, but Inch DID put a stop to it! lol!

    48 - Saint is right. Nanna was still deaf after being made a vamp. hmmm *narrows eyes, thinks and quietly swigs more gin*

  • Comment number 55.

    41 - Aqua - he has absolutely nothing to do with me! :-)

  • Comment number 56.

    I may chance a chocolate one on him having been shot in the back by someone who he'd been evil to but not dying as expected. Also think we might see him in flashback when he could walk.

  • Comment number 57.

    Mmmmm.........a hatch is an opening between one place and another.......

  • Comment number 58.

    57 - interesting... ponders... hatches/openings/doorways... doors...

    I've always wanted to see a Gatekeeper or one of the Men With Sticks etc etc etc.
    Perhaps Capt Hatch is one of them and he's been punished for something, maybe for not getting Annie back when they wanted her?
    Maybe he wants his revenge and now Annie's gone he'll turn on Tom, Alex and Hal.

  • Comment number 59.

    58 - I did consider that he was one of the Men With Sticks and Ropes but didn't LT say we wouldn't get to see them - that they'd be left to our wildest imaginings?

  • Comment number 60.

    59 good point! Not to mention that black feathered wings might be a tad noticable in a run down seaside hotel. (That's what I find anyway, they just won't lie flat under my frocks...) (and they moult)

    Maybe a Gatekeeper then, one who hasn't got his sticks badge yet, never mind ropes or wings...

  • Comment number 61.

    captain hatch ... has a pirate name, right. Ghost ? maybe. As we know , some ghosts can be bad - see Kirby and a werewolf on a wheelchair would be quite ? err - atypical.
    If he is human, his wheelchair condition is very likely related to his knowledge of the supernatural world
    gatekeeper? failed gatekeeper? no because he would not be human so relegated/exiled gatekeeper or relegated/exiled man in grey

    a failed MIG wishing to be re-instated, wishing to be given new credentials or prove new ones
    a very dangerous combination against the household
    imagining context...

  • Comment number 62.

    Tom is the idal candidate to contact as so naive and trusting

    an old man in a wheelchair needing help.
    Hatch: thank you my lad, so rare in these days a well behaved young man. Honors your parents.
    They chat, Tom learns the poor old dear lives in dismal hotel. Hatch looks for a lodging and 'can pay'. Tom swallows everything hook and bait. Money to pay the rent, tenant, unseen cleaners but when is out, cleaner can be 'ghostly'. As for Hal, he has no problem at the cafe. done deal!

    Hatch is in the place! His mission: infiltrate the three supernaturals and learn about thgeir lives and other companions, vampires covens, packs etc before striking!

  • Comment number 63.

    @manc Tattoo is a lot better today! Less red just a bit scabby ;) hahaha

    I liked Kemp, his story was a great twist! You hated him for hurting our trio but felt sorry for him at the same time!

    I dont think that is what will happen with Hatch though, after the description theyve given he is clearly evil through and through, although how he ended up in his wheelchair will inevitably provide interesting watching

    Su :) xx

    @52 betting shop

    Sorry, not me!

    I didn't even lurk until early last series, and delurk towards the end of it....

  • Comment number 65.

    if a WW scratches or bites a human but not on full moon, would that transmit the full curse or, like in Harry Potter, a liking for rare steaks and, as Mitchell would note, a case of a hairy back?

    I guess if a human is bitten/scratched by a WW then it doesn't heal properly.

  • Comment number 66.

    or maybe he was a gatekeeper who falls in love with a supernatural. His own kind are horrified and kick him out and her kind set the heavy mob on him. Romeo and Juliet for the supernatural world but without the big die-in at the end...

    Maybe his fellow gatekeepers tried to wipe his mind/lock him up and throw away the key - so he lost everything and spent most of his life on the run?

  • Comment number 67.

    Or, as a child he witnessed something he shouldn't have. The older members of his family who saw it vanished. He was taken to the orphanage from hell and experimented on eg WW and succubus blood, vampire saliva, and now, much as he suffers, he cannot die. There is no release from excruciating pain and no drugs that work.

  • Comment number 68.

    Mmm Nighty-night anyone who's around.

    Time for some sweeter dreams.....

  • Comment number 69.

    A succubus is the daughter of a human and a demon. WW are fertile. Could he be the son of a demon and WW?

    I assume vamps are sterile - at least with humans - but what about with other supernaturals?

    Hello new blog!
    (And mysterious new blog person hiding in the shadows, behind a shroud of smoke. Welcome :) )

    Captain Hatch sounds interesting, now is he going to be the new big bad or will it be the MiG? I'm thinking the Captain bit probably comes from being in the army, there's plenty of scope for meeting vampires there and that could also be why he's in a wheelchair.
    If he's bitter maybe he was promised something and never received it? Recruitment from either the vampires or the MiG, working for them on an understanding of getting something in return, be it eternal life or power. Then he was let down for some reason and has always bared a grudge, never being able to bury the hatchet...
    Or again being a Captain, vampires preferred mode of transport from continent to continent is by boat...
    Who knows? Well the BH crew I suppose ;)
    So in a nutshell we have a horrid man, stuck in a horrid situation with a great big dark secret and he's somehow going to be involved with the HH trio.
    If he feels like his life isn't worth anything more he could be very dangerous indeed.
    "embodies the worst in humanity" It doesn't say he is human but it doesn't say he's not either. He probably is, it sounds like the same thing we had with Mr Rook at the end of S4, there are lots of things that mean he must be human but at the same time the way he acts we can't be sure.

    Now five cupcakes on this villain not making it to the end of the series anyone? ;)
    No I wouldn't bet on those odds either. The evil characters never last long around here do they!

    @GOOD MORNING

    THE BETTING BOOTH IS OPENING SHORTLY

    we have already @manc with ten cupcakes and @nerdyalice on the villain not making it this season ...only five cupcakes. Quantitative easing on cupcakes is not good, the quality of the filling and the topcream suffer... tss tss

    from now on, betting cupcakes will need to be done providing nature of the cupcake and icing!

    Panda, not sure bamboo cupcakes would appeal to the other betters

    Showing my age here but been a fan of Phil Davis since I used to watch him playing King John in Robin of Sherwood in the 1980's he was a nasty little version of King John in that show absolutely loathesome but comical too. He will be an absolute asset to BH such an excellent great character actor....yaaayyyy can't wait.

    Afternoon All! Afternoon Mods!

    72 - Hellooo DontDrinkTheHotChoc So lovely to see you. :D

    I don't really know much about this actor although I have seen him in some things. Did he really play King John in Robin of Sherwood! ....and I hope you know that now I have that music stuck in my head all day... Oh Enya and co..

    Good Luck to all the BH Bloggers heading to Cardiff/Barry today for the weekend. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and if you are very lucky you might see some filming. But if you don't, I hope you all have loads of fun. x

    "Now five cupcakes on this villain not making it to the end of the series anyone? ;)
    No I wouldn't bet on those odds either. The evil characters never last long around here do they!"

    I always find that a lot depends on if Aqua really REALLY likes a character or not. If she does, they are a gonna. Dead Cert. If she's not that fussed? Well, they might stand a chance. *nods firmly*

    But it's a good bet!

    73 - ROFHL - oh if only we still had a gnomon Manc, I'd dance with you ;-)

    I'll have five (yes only five, a bit short this month) cupcakes on Hatch being ex army and him having committed horrendous war crimes with a dishonourable discharge to boot. I also think he'll be just a plain old fashioned human.

  • Comment number 77.

    Hope all the bloggers going to Cardiff/Barry this weekend to stalk.. Ahem I mean.. try and watch BH filming have a great time, and if you see any of the cast or crew say hello from us!
    Looking forward to reading all about it :)


    Oh and try not to scare the actors into hiding. You know who you are! ;P

  • Comment number 78.

    Hi all. The identity of the "hotties" we'd heard about has now been revealed on the dark side - 3 extremely buff vampires start filming on Monday. Where's MancVamp today cos she's always the first with good news?! A little bit of competition for Hal me-thinks.

  • Comment number 79.

    Helloooo... *waves cheerily* I'm back from Spain and oooooooh. New blog post! Yipee!
    Davis was pretty creepy in Sherlock so I think he will be an excellent villain. Good choice methinks :) And Captain Hatch (if that is his real name...) sounds a very...interesting character. And nothing like we've had before it seems.
    If we go by:
    S1: Supernatural villains
    S2: Human villains
    s3: The household themselves
    s4: Supernatural
    Then it seems like the baddies this time will be human. But does that count CH? Or is it just the MIG?
    We haven't had a new kind of supernatural taking a large role in a series yet so maybe he is that? I think that he and the MIG are connected though. But as allies or as enemies?

    When it said 'Stuck...in a dismal seaside hotel' I straight away thought of the hotel that LT wrote about in 'The God Complex' in Dr Who :) Not that it is going to be there though... (But that would definitely give him something to moan about!)

    And it seems like there's a new blog Master/Mistress. Hello if you're there! Come, show yourself! But... wouldn't they have exposed themselves by now? Or maybe they're just shy? We could try bribing them out with cupcakes!

    @Manc Manc Manc Manc!!!!! Thank you so very much for your comment about my fan fic. I'm really glad you liked it :) None of my friends from school have commented yet so I'm really grateful for your, 0positiv and WhiteHare's comments. Thanks!

    Ooh... and people are going to Wales to try to see filming? You lucky things! Have fun! (And bring back any photos :) )

    Gosh, writing these things take so long :)

    All those travelling to Wales, a tip - bring a umbrella as the weather forecast is only looking good for ducks !!

  • Comment number 81.

    So this is what happens when RL gets busy and I get torn away from the computer..... BH casting happens!

    I think a key line the description of Captain Hatch is the "Captain Hatch has seen it all, AT LEAST HE RECKONS HE HAS" bit.

    (sorry for shouting - but can anyone tell me how to bold on this blog? Thanks)

    So the question is - what has he seen? Clearly something bad, if he has a "dark and toxic secret". This being BH, it's probably got something to do with the supernaturals. Which supernaturals, though?

    And going back to the "he reckons he has [seen it all]" bit - just how reliable and/or complete is what he has seen?

    It appears that Captain Hatch will be certain that he knows it all, but I will bet 10 lovely pink frosted cupcakes that he gets a surprise and what he thinks he saw/knows turns out to be incomplete. Or wrong.

    Morning blog, blog-keeper, mods.

    You Wales-invaders: have a ton of fun! :-)

    Very excited for the 3 model vamps. Hope they come out to play on Monday and show themselves...

    Bye, blog. Off to a daytrip to Ravensburg/Germany.

    ....and they're off! BH Bloggers heading to film set NOW! Oooh, I hope we get loads of pics, pleeeaaaaassssseee...

    83 Camilla - *coughs* you should be in bed! Yes, 3 male models will start BH filming on Monday as 'supporting artists' (that's 'extras to you and me). They are called Luke, Ryan and Jordan. I've seen pics of 2 of them... and I can confirm that they look like very nice boys...

    79 Tree! Hola! Glad you had a nice hols! Yes, I loved the fic! You should maybe have a go at putting it on the fanfic site if you'd like more people to read it?

    Caught up with Vicki's and Brookesey's latest chapters yesterday - great reads - both of them. And congratulations to Vicki and Shoe on their A level results.

    84 - Morning Saint!

    Morning All! Morning Mods!

    83 @camillavirgil - morning. A Cardiff model agency has confirmed that 3 of their top boys will be vampires as from Monday. From what I've seen so far they don't seem to own many clothes!!!

  • Comment number 87.

    86 dripfour haha we posted at the same time! Yes, I also noticed that they seem not to have many clothes. I will start knitting vests!

    BH Bloggers on the way to film set. This is a pic of the BH LOC pink signs if anyone ever goes.

    @mancvamp

    knitting vests? what for? they are models! why would models need vest... ok still reeeling from AT in season 3... still hunks qualify to status without much attire on, isn't it or how would we know they've got six packs.

  • Comment number 89.

    Manc...tirelessly caring for fellow vamps since...when was she born again...she's not an OO...and Saint...it can get very cold in Wales...she doesn't want those poor boys freezing to death...again... ;)

  • Comment number 90.

    Well!! I've only been gone for five minutes and there's a not-very-new blog post up!! I blame all the hysteria on the darkside about the #BHfieldtrip which is in full flow at the moment!
    Woome just tweeted that they are holed up in a tea shop somewhere - lurking and spying.
    Sounds like the sort of thing we get up to ;)
    And they've met Ryan! Lucky things

    I am so jealous :((

    @MancVamp - I can knit too, if you need any help. Mostly baby bootees. or scarves. did manage a jumper once or twice but never tried a vest :)

  • Comment number 91.

    I'm slightly less jealous - tmxghost is making me laugh on the darkside.

    so, Aunty Manc - where did you see this pics of the three lovely models?? I'm sure that you were looking on a purely observational level, on behalf of the blog of course. ;)

  • Comment number 92.

    She is a spy, Brookesey... ;)

    She has already infiltrated the MIGS...so far she has managed to find out how they like their coffee/tea...Mr Rook's junior has requested sickleave...on the grounds of "I just can't take anymore...there are only so many times I can type the word 'Type'...and I've tried...I really have...but I can't get blood out of a tweed suit...and I've got a bad back with all that lifting of non-dead people...who really do look dead to me...oh...that's that funny little wand...what are you doing...primroses and scones...the world is a wonderful place..."

    And she had to copy that the old way...the MIGS apparently still use carbon paper... ;)

  • Comment number 93.

    87 MancVamp - Ha! Knew you'd be on the case. It might be kind to knit them vests cos there were no chest hairs in sight to protect them from what I saw! Many push ups have been done by those three, I'll wager!

  • Comment number 94.

    87 MancVamp - Think I meant press ups - doubt they wear bras!

  • Comment number 95.

    Afternoon all.

  • Comment number 96.

    Exciting news...the bloggers watching BH filming are only in a shot as extras!!!! I'll let them tell you all about it ....so...a group of very wet but very happy bloggers to look out for in epsiode three I believe!

  • Comment number 97.

    @96 dorina Great news!!! Very excited and will be looking out for them. :-D

  • Comment number 98.

    The niece of director Phil @cassiejohnxo was also filming as an extra today and there's a lovely photo of her with Damien in his 3 piece tweed suit and a cravet. She was a schoolgirl and her school is called Rathbone High School.
    I haven't put a link to her twitter account, as I've not asked her yet if I can.

  • Comment number 99.

    Soooo jealous of our intrepid bloggers. Sure they'll all be far too excited to get any sleep tonight!

  • Comment number 100.

    Here is a question about the secret Captain Hatch is sitting on.

    Does it involve the trio?

    Hal has done lots of things that would have called for some tidying up.

    McNair in the dog fights and after his escape must have done some damage - after all before he adopted Tom in his own words. "I was wild, as much a danger to myself as anyone else."

    Alex now here is a real question Her mother did she leave or disappear - also was she disappeared by the supernatural or by the MiG after trying to spread the word. "And if we need to we can make people disappear in a puff of smoke."

    Or not..........

    Oh and congrats to the blog extras.
