    One word about this theory: nope.

  • Comment number 2.

    I wouldn't call Christa a murderer though it may be possible that she killed Matt in werewolf form since people who are werewolves have no recolection of their actions when they return to human form

  • Comment number 3.

    i think it could be possable.
    you never know she could have known about him stalking him before and she was dead angry that he was stalking her as a ghost she could have know he was watching through the gap got really angry as there could have been a full moon coming up. and just thrashed out?

  • Comment number 4.

    i love this it is really cool.
    i think that when being human seris 4 starts again they should start this again.

  • Comment number 5.

    Trust it to be now my speakers aren't working! Can I have a transcript please?

  • Comment number 6.

    He sounds almost worried too. I don't think Christa is capable of murder whether she is affected by werewolf aggression or not

  • Comment number 7.

    I think Adam's theory is way off although we now know that it is getting close to the full moon. But at least he's considering all possibilities even though he's most likely wrong.

  • Comment number 8.

    Nope it wasnt Christa... No matter how near the full moon.

    Although i admit if the attack was late enough it could have been her in WW form, where she has no controll and no memory. However, as we know it happened after games on a friday afternoon, it wont have been a WW attack.

  • Comment number 9.

    So George and Nina were a bit temperamental were they interesting. Yes she's angry but that angry after all as he says this is near the full moon - but Matt's death wasn't near the full moon. He shoots, the ball hits the basket and goes into the crowd.

  • Comment number 11.


    9. in real time calendar, Matts death was the day before full moon :-S

    Not that that makes any difference to me, it still wasnt christa.

  • Comment number 12.

    Posted this on the other blog but just waanted to get ur opinions...

    I was thinking, if she transforms in the school gym could this be her first transformation, or second at most, because surely if she had been a werewolf for a while she would be going into a forest or something to change, away from others? She was really keen to protect Brandy from Adam in the last episode so it would be hypocritical of her to change in the gym and put everyone at risk like that, considering the school would be open in the evening for evening clubs etc. Its seems like she wasn't prepared for the change... Like George in Season 1 before he met Tully, he was in denial (like christa) so didn't bring clothes and money but he at least went as far away from ppl as poss! What do you think?

    Or maybe we see the janitor so much now because when she changes in the gym she attacks him. Maybe she changes in the gym on purpose and gets Adam or Matt to lock her in, but then the janitor gets a call about a trapped dog howling in the school, can he sort it out. He opens the gym and goodbye janitor. They could be drawing attention to him as a victim, not the killer.

    And that could lead into a new season.. Christa cant cope with the guilt, so her and Adam run away for a new start somewhere else. Maybe they take Matt with them to meet Annie in Being Human to ask for advise on how to cross over....

  • Comment number 13.

    I really don't think she would of hurt Matt in human form no matter how angry she was, she wouldn't have reacted to his ghost in that way, and wouldn't have stopped Adam killing Brandy... She would have let him like she she did it, problem solved.

    I thought possibly he could have hit his head and fell into toilet and died by accident (as some1 else suggested) and she could have eat his body, in wolf form, that night, but woudn't that leave a massive mess? and wouldn't she have thrown up bodyparts? Also I don't think Matts death happened near the full moon. Christa didnt seem very angry about the peeping, so wasnt near the change i think judging by the strength of her reaction to Matt.

  • Comment number 14.

    So finally Adam says what people have been thinking from day one.

  • Comment number 15.

    *To Adam (not matt)

  • Comment number 16.

    12. Perhaps the changing in the gym is a flashback to the first time she transformed.

    More info guys remember in ep 1, she mentions being stalked by a bouncy castle, she didnt recognise matt until someone pointed out he was the same kid from the posters. If she was the murderer there would have been some flickers of recognition that we would spot. Equally if she had killed him she would be very scared by his ghost returning and stalking her!

    Sorry Adam but you need to rattle those lonely braincells a little more!

  • Comment number 17.

    11 - real time not becoming human time they are at most passing a episode = a day so with a weekend it's 7 days plus another 9 days no where near a month of time passing.

  • Comment number 18.

    very true ewan, I'd decided when i looked into it that BH time is nothing like real time lol.

  • Comment number 19.

    Yeah ewan your right they must be posted day to day because there in detention and only got a weeks worth, but that doesn't indicate how long b4 the first episode Matts death was... has anyone worked out hoe long christa was being stalked 4 feel like im missin something lol

  • Comment number 20.

    5 - Christa's still not speeking to me, seriosly she's got issues it's getting close to the full moon and she's getting weirder. I mean George and Nina were a bit like this but they can handle it. That photo must have been before her attack its changed her she's darker more angre with everyone. I toataly imagan her going mental maybe she. No, no way note to self observe everything suspect everyone.

  • Comment number 21.

    16, I thought that but in the transforming pic her hair is greasy as sin, it probably wouldn't have been at her first transformation because she'd still be a good girl that washes lol

  • Comment number 22.

    16 - On top of her having to have Matt's identity pointed out to her she also seemed genuinely surprised when Matt admitted he was watching her. This would indicate she had no prior knowledge of Matt's little obsession, unless Christa is a really good actress.

  • Comment number 23.

    Can someone type up what he is saying because I can't hear it through this stupid laptop

  • Comment number 24.

    23 - Ewan did in post 20

  • Comment number 25.

    For Whoever Wanted the transcript....

    Christa's Still Not Speaking To Me, Seriously She's Got Issues.
    We're Getting closer to the full Moon And She's Getting Weirder, I Mean, George And Nina were a bit like this but they could handle it.
    That photo must of been Before her attack, its changed her. She's darker, more angry with everyone I can totally imagine her going mental. Maybe she...No. No way.
    Note To Self: Observe everything, Suspect Everyone.

    I'm Thinking It Can't be Christa, Not only Would She remember Something About Killing Matt, There Would Be a Large Mess In the Toilets And I doubt the Whole body Would Be Disposed off If She did It in WW mode, And it would have to be a night...

    Plus, why Would Christa Follow him Into the Boys Toilets? Someone Would see If this was during School hours Because In My School, I Doubt There's ever A time When The Toilets Aren't Being Used. Also, There would be a rush to get out of school so i'm assuming you'd have to pass the toilets?

    Sorry If i rambled...I Forget what i'm going on about :L

  • Comment number 26.

    23 - Ewans wrote it on 20.

  • Comment number 27.

    where is the transforming pic?
    i have looked at all the blogs i carnt fund it

  • Comment number 28.

    Anyone else wondering how it is possible for a photo of Adam to be on the video?

  • Comment number 29.

    28 - it's an audio file the images are just that extra to the file. Still kind of a mix up.

  • Comment number 30.

    I think it was Gary Fritton

  • Comment number 31.

    i know that but still, there shouldn't be a photo of a vampire. It's probably a mistake.

  • Comment number 32.

    31. that comment was ment for 29

  • Comment number 33.

    31 - Good point it should have been of Christa after all the track was about her reaction, then again the picture could just mean nothing.

  • Comment number 34.

    There are loads of pics of mitchell and other vamps on the BH blogs...

    OK we know the BH world vamps arent supposed to be able to be photographed for video'd but it would make both series pretty dull if we the outsiders didnt have pics.

  • Comment number 35.

    I guess it all depends if the photo and film are added by the characters or by whoever is in charge of making these clips because a character would not have been able to take a photo of Adam but if its a screen shot then its ok. The updates are being done as if we are all in the BH world so they should stick to the rules. They should have put a 30 year old photo of Adam on there, that would have been funny.

  • Comment number 36.

    I'm not buying it. I think this is a huge red herring. Ok, maybe Christa is getting angrier because of the full moon approaching and obviously she's changed since the day she was transformed but I don't think she's the murderer. Adam should understand all the issues she's dealing with: her DOUBLE "monthly problem", the fact that her life's changed and everyone is laughing at her, probably guilt for having indirectly caused Matt's death(as she points out in her diary).

    Of course, Adam has "the emotional range of a teaspoon" so cannot grasp all that LOL

    Am I the only one who thinks Adam and Christa are a lot similar to the whole Ron/Hermione relationship?

  • Comment number 37.

    So I think through various reasoning it's pretty much been established that Christa was not the killer, in wolf form or otherwise therefore I think the reason behind this video is to give us one bit of info and one clue:

    It's coming up to the full moon
    Observe everything, Suspect Everyone

    So I guess in this, or the next episode there will be a transformation (I think they'll leave next ep as a cliffhanger at sundown and the ep afterwards will be the transformation)

    And as for the clue, after the last blog (with the static arriving just before the cleaner) I think the clearner is a ghost and that he will hold the key to solving the mystery!

  • Comment number 38.

    37 - Okay that is a new and excellent theory. Forced to clean the halls forever.

  • Comment number 39.

    im bac people that was the longest 3 days of my life (went on holiday) and i was going to log on my phone but i cant watch videos and then it would not let me on i was going to ask someone to write exactly what was going on i was well upset i could not get my being/becoming human fix i was going mental well my aunt is really ill and i have to go to ireland so would somebody do that for me i will post when im going but yeh thanx if you can that would be the best

  • Comment number 40.

    i think its becoming to obvious to be christa. yes she's moody but that may not mean she would kill someone . she could ingure someone (like when george took those tablets)

    when you think about the janitor it makes sense because he could have been cleaning the toilets and catching matt in the act or something like that, plus he has access to all the things you need like a mop or a shovel (If he buried the body)

  • Comment number 41.

    they have gone to the effort of making it a video recording because Adams picture cant be taken but they put a picture of him at the beginning lol

  • Comment number 42.

    36 - I was thinking of all the problems that Crista must have to go though being a teenage girl AND now a werewolf I think that she has more problems than Adam has even if he is fighting the thirst.
    "emotional range of a teaspoon" I quite like that one LoL =D

    37 - Interesting theory about the janitor it would make a good second series starting point

    Really thinking that Adam has A LOT to learn about being a teenager and how to read people. He could do with more in depth thought about whats happening to Crista too.

    Really don't think Crista did it in either form she would still have some inner guilt, like subconsious guilt, she might have no consious memory of what happens in WW form but she would still have that slight feeling. Like when George, Nina, McNair and Tom were in the dog fight room and Annie and Mitchell were in the cage. George was around Nina being protective like some of his human traits (even though the WW side would sense it anyway) like being over protective of Nina. (Sorry rambling a bit again)

  • Comment number 43.

    you do realise this isn't real

  • Comment number 44.

    37- So you think the static in the video is connected with the janitor being a ghostly presence... it's definitely something to think about. I'm not sure if it's possible though, woulndt it be strange if people (I mean "normal", not supernatural people) saw a mop and a bucket going round the school on their own? Anyway I agree with you: one way or the other, the janitor holds the key to the solution.

    42 - glad you liked the quote, but to be honest it's not mine (unfortunately), it's JK Rowling's, f(not sure which book of the HP series, but I think the Order of the Phoenix). lol

  • Comment number 45.

    Would be easy for the janiotr to kill Matt and clean it up without anyone noticing. That or he knows because he cleaned up the mess. But I honestly don't think Matt died in the stalls... he woke up somewhere else, right?

  • Comment number 46.

    42 - P.S. Love your ramblings, you usually make comparisons and point out interesting things XD

  • Comment number 47.

    I realy dont think that it was Christa, as Adam explains its comeing up for the full moon and she is on edge and getting angrier by the minute, If you look at the video where Brandy and her are changeing and Matt is behind the Grill she looks a bit more relaxed and less angry, also when Brandy says that theres someone behind the grill she looks a little lost and like she didnt know what to do because from what i saw if Brandy said that so close to the full moon i think she would have kicked the hell out the locker and Matt, so i think in my own opinion that the Christa killing Matt transformed is ruled out - but thats only my opinion

  • Comment number 48.

    Yay! People actually like my rambling.

    45 - I will mention again that Matt admitted that he was drowned and when Adam picked up on it he started to do that little panicky thing people do when they say something they weren't supposed to and then trys to cover it up by saying "Well I just remembered. Like a jigsaw puzzle, just little pieces" or something like that

  • Comment number 49.

    Oh and quick note about the picture. Crista posted a drawing not a picture of Adam because 1. he can't be seen as a reflection (a digital image is a reflection) and 2. Crista was probably making fun of him and I would Have done the same since I'm that kind of person =)

  • Comment number 50.

    44-annie could be seen before she when to pergotry

  • Comment number 51.

    50 - in what way do you mean Annie could be "seen" before she went to purgotry?

  • Comment number 52.

    well she once awnsered the door to the pizza guy and he could see her but she was still a ghost

  • Comment number 53.

    51. George and Nina could see Annie on the CCTV when she was dragged through the door

  • Comment number 54.

    i don't balme adam, but i don't think she killed matt i think they should talk to steve. if i were adam i would be doing everything in my power to be mates again because if she don't like him at the full moon he could be ripped to shreads as she can't control her actions then. i hope she don't but maybe she dose try to go after him. shame we don't she more in the clip of her transforming. i think adam is in grave danger. :O hope she doesn't attack him!

  • Comment number 55.

    Matt said he was downed - so there would be no mess to clean up - just his body!
    Im liking the whole 'janitor is a ghost' thing, but would a ghost be able to kill someone?
    Anyone else wonder why in the changing rooms Christa did not run away like the other girls when they found out someone was peeking behing the grill?

  • Comment number 56.

    51 + 52 - yeah she got a job and everything but even when she was visable to humans, she still caused static around TVs and radios

  • Comment number 57.

    Annie being seen questions or points of view, it goes back to the pilot she couldn't be seen, only after being with George and Mitchell for a while was she visible then knocked back by Owen's appearance with Janey. then the whole gained confidence visible again to confront Owen refused the door. So she had a form until Saul and the door.

    Sykes then pointed out that her visibility was against nature the artificial horizon.

    As for the camera at CenSSA HQ Ghosts have throughout modern myth been visible on film check the internet with the words Ghost Photo proof and you will be amazed how much "evidence" there is for this.

  • Comment number 58.

    The thing about Annie being visible she was visible to humans for certain reasons and as ewan said the reason she was visible with Saul was because she was a "crease on the napkin of nature" and George and Nina could see her because they are supernaturals themselves.

  • Comment number 59.

    50 - You're right! I hadn't thought about that. People could see Annie for a while so ghosts can definitely be seen in certain circumstances in the BH-verse!

    Can't wait to see next episode now. I wonder if there'll be somehing about this infamous janitor...

  • Comment number 60.

    the cleamer i think is well important. they should talk to him he probaly moved the body from the toilet. you would think matt would remember more

  • Comment number 61.

    i've only seen the janitor once in one clip

  • Comment number 62.

    60 - I think Matt knows a lot more than he is letting on. He is probably hidding a lot of it so he could get his revenge and have some friends

  • Comment number 63.

    Goood note to self Adam but do you really think that she done it? What if Adam did the deed himself but didnt realise it was Matt. Thats why he came to the school and knew all the answers of why Matt was still here? Christa needs to do some more looking into things...

  • Comment number 64.

    63 - Adam is assuming that Matt was murdered because of what he saw with Annie and don't forget Sykes unfinished buisness wasn't because he was murdered but it was something to do with him being an officer in the RAF

  • Comment number 65.

    61.- He's pretty Much In The background Of every Episode Eg. Christa's Anger Bit, He's At The very end when Adam's Calling After Her.

    You've usually gotta Keep your Eye On The Background for the Whole Episode to See him :L

  • Comment number 66.

    You can drown and not die.

  • Comment number 67.

    63- i think adam knew all about ghosts because of annie and what he found out about her when he was staying with george nina in barry.
    i don't think it was christa or adam that killed matt i still think steve mckenna should be spoke to.steve could have had a arrgument with matt after all he is allergic to matt's fav food, EGGS.
    the cleaner is like the most talked about character on the blog. don't u think?

  • Comment number 68.

    64- good point about sykes

  • Comment number 69.

    Its possible but she didn't even know it was Matt looking though the grill. Also, if she murdered Matt she wouldn't be helping him.

  • Comment number 70.

    66 - How can you drown and not die?

  • Comment number 71.

    70- You can be resuscitated. You go unconscious before you die from drowning. It could've been the last thing he remembered, but not the last thing that happened.

  • Comment number 72.

    And by that, I don't mean someone resuscitated him, I'm just trying to get the point across that you become less conscious of what is going on before you actually die from drowning, therefore he could easily have lost the memory of his last moments.

  • Comment number 73.

    71 - Ok fair enough but that has other things to it and who would bring him back? and if they did what happened to him then?

  • Comment number 74.

    73- Sorry I didn't explain in post 71, look at the next post. I'm thinking he was dragged somewhere else. I honestly didn't think it through.

  • Comment number 75.

    69- if christa did kill him she might be helping him to take the suspicion off of her. so could adam though.

  • Comment number 76.

    I always though thst Annie started to be seen by people again because she became a poltergeist? Maybe the janitor's one, he could have been like an OCD neat freak and his calling was to clean the school or something. Ergo he can be seen by others but causes static

    The drowning theorie's interesting, he could have passed out from lack of oxygen but not die, it would make more sense that his first ghost memory was in the car park then.

    And Christa didn't do it. She just wouldn't. She didn't relise that Matt was stalking her, and anyway, why would she help them? It'd be easy for her to just tel Adam that he was a freak and she had no idea what he was talking about, but instead she's helping. And she didn't want Adam to give in to his inner monster, so why would she?
    Adam has so much to learn about girls :L

    I love the Ron/Hermione quote!

  • Comment number 77.

    I'm going to stick with the "He drowned" thing but I'll keep that in mind that it's possible someone did kill him and he was just unconsious and i guess it makes sense because if he was unconsious he won't remember any of it.

  • Comment number 78.

    Well with Annie she had to see sometihng significant that triggered her memory, so maybe Matt didn't remember anything in the loo where he was 'drowned' because he didn't die there. And if he goes to the real place he dies, even by accident, it might just trigger something.
    We can safely say the Janitor isn't a Vamp because we see his reflection in the glass a lot, but if he is a ghost who is to say the students can see him? We have seen no interaction between him and anyone yet (i think) so he might be a ghost?
    Can a ghost can still move a body?

  • Comment number 79.

    78 - I think so, or if they have been a ghost for a while they can interact with objects

  • Comment number 80.

    Had a weird thought on the memory thing.

    Annie was face to face with Owen when he killed her from Matt's position he wouldn't have seen much of his attacker meaning he wont remember as much. He might have caught glimpses but not enough to form the full play by play replay that Annie was witness to. At least not yet.

  • Comment number 81.

    80 - Maybe Annie was blinded by her "love" for Owen but once she got the trigger she realised and like you said if kp24 is right then Matt would have been unconsious while everything was happening which will make it harder and more complicated for him to remember. UNLESS he did actually full scale drown in the toilet and died there too.

  • Comment number 82.

    I reckon Matt knows perfectly well who murdered him and where his body. Look how he remembers things at convienient moments. I think he's just faking not remembering so Christa will continue to spend time with him.

  • Comment number 83.

    Yer soooo agree 82!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 84.

    Maybe Adam goes to confront Christa and becomes more convinced of her guilt and loses it, goes full on vampire to take on what he sees as a monstrous murderer then Matt clears his throat and conveniently remembers that actually he was buried alive in a field miles from the school.

  • Comment number 85.

    Riiiight Adam if someone doesn't react positively to your sparkling wit then they clearly must be a homicidal maniac.

    Im still betting the teacher did it. He misdirected them to the Crompton chick afterall. Who gives away private info like that? PSYCHOS.

    I reckon he hated Matt cos he didnt join enough clubs and maybe he hates the smell of eggs too..

    Unless of course the writers are cheating and haven't shown us the murderer yet. But that's not fair.

  • Comment number 86.


    even if he did drown and didnt die in the carpark, WHY did he vomit beforehand?

    As he says in episode 1;

    ""you dont get a body like that without being able to handle your food""

    I'm beginning to suspect some sort of poisoning, perhaps from the mysterious Steve McKenna or even from the detention teacher Mr Row...

  • Comment number 87.

    I am sure we have seen the murderer in at least episode 1, if not all of the episodes. In the other episodes the other suspects all crop up, so its down to our power of observation to spot the murderer in there too.

  • Comment number 88.

    well obviously be4 she was attackd and now shes a werewolf shes drkr

  • Comment number 89.

    I'm glad someone else came up with the "janitor is a ghost" theory. I've been thinking that aswell, but I only just made myself an account.

    78 - When they went to look for clues in the toilet, in Episode 1 I think, didn't Matt see some doodle on the wall and look like he'd remebered something? But then when one of the others asked him what he'd seen he just said "nothing". So I think Matt's last memory before his death was in the toilet - though I agree he might have been moved while unconcious - and I'm sure he knows a lot more than he is telling Adam and Christa.

  • Comment number 90.

    Although I doubt that Christa killed Matt, it would be interesting, as then both Christa and Adam would have killed people, and if it is interesting, the producers might do it.

  • Comment number 91.

    Has anyone seen the preview over on the main blog yet? It's very interesting and I can't wait to see the ep tomorrow :)

  • Comment number 92.

    86, I'm wondering if Matt is getting the order of things a bit mixed up. Even though he told Adam and Christa in ep1 that he was in the toilet throwing up, in his 'how I died' post he said that he was in the toilet writing graffiti and when he got back up someone bumped the door and hit him into the toilet.

    Taking into account that he reckons he was killed not long after he was caught peeping on Christa, there's not much time for him to have been sick then and have been writing graffiti. And really would you want to be down there doodling after you've just been sick?

    Where I'm going with this is maybe he ran to the toilets, then wsa writing the graffiti and someone knocked him into the toilet and he half drowned. The person panicked and started moving him and at somepoint during him being moved Matt revived enough to be sick. Would being half drowned in a toilet make you feel sick?

    Maybe he passed out again and was buried alive or he was half conscious and whoever thought they'd killed him accidentally panicked again and killed him for real.

    Unless they stuffed him in a boot of a car and that's where he vomited and choked?

    I think I've complicated that somewhere, but it's just a theory.

  • Comment number 93.

    12- i love your idea about the janitor being attacked. when i was reading about this series they interveiwed Craig Roberts (Adam) and he said that the series ends in a cliff hanger so u could well be on the right lines.
    i don't think it was christa who killed matt. we aren't even sure if matt was killed. he could have slipped on a wet floor and smacked his head. fell in the toilet and drown.
    also i don't think it was christa because in episide 4 matt said he always looked at christa and she didn't notice him. so if that is true she wouldn't esactly just go after him for no reason, but if she did then why would she pacificly go after just matt. not brandy, danny or even adam?

  • Comment number 94.

    92 - I had a theory similar to that last night.
    I think maybe Matt had drowned but not complete died just unconsious and when the janitor came in he panicked and put Matt in a box and used a trolley to get him out the school then he put him in his car and drove off to dump the body somewhere. Somewhere inbetween all the event Matt was sick and died I think.

  • Comment number 95.

    94 - That could bring us back to the janitor again.

    What we need to think about is who had the means to remove a body from the school. If we assume for a moment that the killer used a car unless one of the younger kids got an adult to help them this would narrow our list of suspects to sixth form and the staff. Which I think crosses Steve Mckenna off the list because he's younger, can't remember what year but I know it's not sixth form.

  • Comment number 96.

    95 - Since I'm Scottish I don't know what sixth form means. Yeah it brings us back to the janitor but not as the one that killed him, just connects him to how he got out the school and ended up in the car park

  • Comment number 97.

    92 - That is such a good idea! The first part of it would make perfect sense, although Matt awoke in a car park so maybe the person who knocked him unconcious carried him to the car park to put him in their car?

  • Comment number 98.
