    Thank you oh so very much BH team. that was like christmas, my birthday and a pizza with all my favourite foods on it all at once. My life is now complete with a 6 minute video.

    PS. great choice of music:)

  • Comment number 6.

    Thank you indeed!!
    I can't wait for monday! I'll be down to the BBC shop in Birmingham as soon as I can to get the DVD box set!!

  • Comment number 7.

    FAB...BH Team, you are now officially my most favourite peeps in the world. Thankyou.

    I was right all along about his love for Josie. But the Unchained Melody...I think that was designed to finish us off completely!!

    Well, thats the rest of my day taken care of.

    We are off again....Singing... GET YER LEAD!!

    I may pop back later with more well thought out comments

    Once again, thankyou

  • Comment number 8.

    I have just been moderated....what did I say?

  • Comment number 9.

    that was marvellous! MARVELLOUS! I could cry I feel all peculiar again, just when I was beginning to cope without him!!!
    omg that was so amazing, you are sooooooo clever and lovely and wonderful you BH prod team. Would you like to marry me?
    sorry I'm going to have to watch it again immediately.
    oh god, wait til eagle_eyes sees it!
    that was wonderful, oh I've gone all funny inside!

  • Comment number 10.

    To BH Team, just watched it again....still brilliant

    To the Mods (Comment 3) YOU misunderstood!!

  • Comment number 11.

    Nice one, Team :-)

  • Comment number 12.

    omg that Unchained Melody bit just does for me every time. I've just watched it 3 times again.
    Just when life was becoming normal again as well!
    Being Human Production - you have done for me. I'm totally in love with that vampire.

  • Comment number 13.

    is it too late to put it on the DVD's?? lol

  • Comment number 14.

    just watched it again. watched the bit with Josie 3 times over. that is so beautifully edited
    someone say something quick before VanHelsey gets home so we can use up some space, or I'll get in trouble over my endless Mitchell ravings!

  • Comment number 15.

    Hi Brooksie.....not too shabby was it?? I think they really listened to us...gives you a warm cuddly feeling

  • Comment number 16.

    Brilliant! sigh that was lovely.

    So glad the Annie kiss moment was first it's my fave.

    & is Josies sacrifice the most poignant because its romantic & beautiful, or is it just cause theres a lot of Mithell naked time ;)

    a little surprised there was no Lauren scenes in there at all, not even the moment when he stakes her that was also a very movin scene.

    But Im not complaining. That little film has reminded me why Mitchell is so super. Its reignited my Mitchell flame!

  • Comment number 17.

    are you doing a George & Annie one. I can't wait for Georges, so many brilliant moments to chose from!

  • Comment number 18.


  • Comment number 19.

    BH Team... that was brilliant :) gonna be smiling like a nutter all day :D Have to agree with Vampfan you are now my most favourite peeps as well.

    Vampfan (7) woof-woof!!!!

  • Comment number 20.

    Vampfan (3) what did you say... tsk tsk!

  • Comment number 21.

    Nothing !! I can only assume the Mods got carried away and totally misunderstood what I meant. Still even they make mistakes its part of Being Human.

    Anyway, more importantly, How worth the wait was that little film?? Was expecting a Big Question so what a lovely suprise....hang on...just gonna watch it again (can these tinterweb thngies wear out if you use them too much?)

  • Comment number 22.

    nope they don't wear out... it's not like tapes.

    Love it, who needs a Big Question when you've got a little film all about our favourite vampire's best moments ;)

    Was so going to write best bits just then... but the George-ish part of my brain took over saying "No it's too risky, vampfan might become too excited!" well actually it said „Nein, ist es zu riskant, Vampfan könnte zu aufgeregt werden." the George-ish part of my brain speaks German...

  • Comment number 23.

    *applauds* Oh this was so worth the wait! Thankyou so much, you lovely folks on the BH team! Bravo! And I couldn't fault any of the top five choices - the "Love of Josie" had me teared up all over again. Fantastic!

    I'm with you, Oh-Suzi! :D I just can't wait for a George one to come along. ^^ *bounces excitedly*

  • Comment number 24.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.

  • Comment number 25.

    singing: a German-speaking George(but only in your head) and Seth dreams.....Has the vampire done this to you?

  • Comment number 26.

    There's another one..this is like xmas morning.....thanks BH

  • Comment number 27.

    The Seth dreams have stopped, thankfully. And I only think in German sometimes, was raised bilingual, for some reason it's when I get drunk or have George-ish moments that the German takes over.

    That vid gets better with each viewing ;)

  • Comment number 28.

    Never noticed this before, but he licks his lips after kissing Annie, don't know how I never noticed that before...

  • Comment number 29.

    Ahhh, why can't I hear the sound?!! *cries* Very nice to watch our lovely Mitch, but I can't hear his gorgeous accent. oh, that crying scene where Josie dies gets me every time.

  • Comment number 30.

    shellmoby: wait till you see the Josie scene with the sound track...just luvverlee

  • Comment number 31.

    Silly me, my computer was on mute!! All better now...that was such a fab video and my knees have turned to jelly again.

    @vampfan...yes indeedy, such a love story! The track made me giggle though, as it's not the sort of thing you would ever hear in a BH episode, but it suited that editing perfectly!

  • Comment number 32.

    singing: you are not going to believe this...look at your 24

  • Comment number 33.

    We're doing well today, so speaking/thinking in German is against house rules... dang, might be a problem

  • Comment number 34.

    it is as well just checked the house rules... who knew, wonder if it would have been ok if I'd put the English translation right next to it again?

  • Comment number 35.

    I do love the part where they meet the neighbours, but then wondered why Mitchell just walks away...well, he sort of lollops away - is that a word? - maybe the tea is stewing in the pot or something, who knows?

    And that last Josie scene is just lovely - even though Mitchell has blood on his face, it's still so heartwrenching, because he did it for the right reasons.

    BTW, I watched Interview with the Vampire for the first time last night, and all the blood in that was making me feel a bit queasy - so glad BH didn't go all out for the gore.

  • Comment number 36.

    I'm sure he goes to get something... memory fails me at the moment

  • Comment number 37.

    That will be me and you in the naughty corner till we can learn to behave in grown-up company. Don't know about you but I'm pretty sure my mum and dad had that covered by the time I was about 7

    Back to the vampire...can't get the way he looks at Josie out of my mind...have gone all goose-bumpy

  • Comment number 38.

    shellmoby/.singing...I think he goes for more biscuits....I love when hes telling George about Cassie? only having one kidney 'Nobody knows why' but he goes almost as if he is a little tiddly

  • Comment number 39.

    yup, but like I said was also speaking German when I was 7 and unfortunately I'm having one of those days where English isn't coming as easily as German... I'm having a German day, I'm thinking in German at the moment which is making typing this in English very difficult... I even have a North German accent today rather than an London one, damn bilingual upbringing!

    love the scenes with Josie, so tender.

  • Comment number 40.

    yes, I did watch this episode only yesterday as well, you'd think I'd remember.

  • Comment number 41.

    watching episode 2 again, forgeooten how funny the bit about the neighbours is.

  • Comment number 42.

    * forgotten d'oh!

  • Comment number 43.

    the neighbours one yes, our coooool vampire is almost manic is't he...but just as lovable

  • Comment number 44.

    singingtwit! you are using my invented word! George-ish!! see, I knew we could invent a BH language!

  • Comment number 45.

    singingtwit you are making me lol
    do you think Being Human was shown in Germany??
    have an irrational desire to type something in German just to see if the mods remove it!
    it's because of trapped frustrated energy caused by excessive, repeated watchings of Mitchell's greatest moments!!

  • Comment number 46.

    it was the only word I could think of to describe that part of my mind that goes, "No! Can't do that something bad might happen. It's too risky... close your eyes this bit is scary...etc" Describes it well I feel.

  • Comment number 47.

    ohhh i cant watch it :-( can neve wath things like this when theyre new cos its too busy ill have t wait til the middle of the night :-( sounds like its good though it got s faras the swagerand the hug so thanks for that :-)

    Ok up to he sofa scene it keeps stoping and stariting but now it jut wont go at all s wil ty later...looking good tough guys although he hasnt said laurel and hardy yet im getting worried...

    Any chance some clever bod could get this on the wnder that is youtube thnk you :-) preereably before i get home from work tonight i think ill need cheering up lol

    Thanks for this mr P looooking frward to the others

  • Comment number 48.

    sorry, just had to watch it again. I just have to keep watching the Mitchell/Josie section - omg it's just beautiful. It's like bein a teenager again!! flippin 'eck. thank you again BH production, that is the best thing EVER on the blog and that's saying something.
    and don't you think we all chose pretty well too? I'm sure all Mitchell's best bits are in there

  • Comment number 49.

    eagle it's fantastic!! but he dont say laurel and hardy I'm afraid. or anything about otters in totterdown.
    you've got the best bit to come - mitchell and josie, I could cry it's so beautiful

  • Comment number 50.

    Don't know if it would work in Germany, German humour is a little different to English they go more for slapstick and down right baffonery (is that even a word?) dark humour is generally not picked up on or seen as being that good, but would hate to see the show dubbed in German, the feel would be lost, if it were to be shown in Germany they'd have to remake it in Germany.
    Trying to think of an example of clean German joke to translate into english to show you what I mean... shall return in ein moment! :P

  • Comment number 51.

    come on brookesie get a grip, starting to realise I've typed the word "beautiful" several hundred times between here and the forum this afternoon!
    *giggles unashamedly behind hands*

  • Comment number 52.

    singingtwit, we have both lost the plot today I'm afraid!

  • Comment number 53.

    I'm just having a German day, they happen every now and again... am seriously struggling to think of a German joke I know that's clean and/or makes sense in English

  • Comment number 54.

    and yes brooksie we have lost the plot...

  • Comment number 55.

    it's that Bristol vampire, I thought I was over him and then they give us this today!!

  • Comment number 56.

    Sorry had to go out Dog/Poorly eye/Vets/Sorted...but it did mean that I had to go a whole 56 and3/4 minutes without watching IT....caught up now though...what are we talking about?

  • Comment number 57.

    yes we'll blame him! Good idea!

  • Comment number 58.

    Vampfan what did you do on the other blog? that's 2 in 1 day!

  • Comment number 59.

    remembered what I was going to say earlier, the bit with the neighbours was cut short needed -

    Mitchell: ... listen to their stories.
    George: about Vin Disel.
    Mitchell: a remarkable man I'm beginning to realise.

  • Comment number 60.

    I have quite a few VERY excited messages on FB that told me to come straight over here. I wasn't disappointed. lol at Unchained Melody though.
    The Josie/Mitch story is fascinating so I'm really glad that took the main stage. Yes I know I was arguing that but I do genuinely feel that it was just about editing and time rather than evil Mitch appearing again so.. yeah my favourite bit. Love Josie. :)
    Spy! Yay!
    Thank you Bh prod. I'm worried that all of these will be lost, I hope that they can find time to think about an extra DVD for the blog videos.

  • Comment number 61.

    yeah, super!! all the blog vids mustn't be lost, they are so good, and so much time spent making them.
    how are you super, old bean? long time since we spoke

  • Comment number 62.

    That was just ACE!!!!!

    I loved every second and i don't think my urge to run up and hug Mitchell at that end scene where he's killed Josie is ever going to go away. That music was a good choice too.

    Thank you BH team. Thank you so much. xxxx

  • Comment number 63.

    I'm doing great brookes my older bean ;) Oh that sounds very wrong.

    Anyway.... yeah erm.. my brother came over today.. he found my twilight DVD and the books I'd bought today. He's deeply concerned about my mental health. But I've told him, it's OK I'm a BH fangirl not a Twilight fangirl. So I think he's forgiven me a bit.

  • Comment number 64.

    lol super - " my older bean"
    is that a compliment
    oldest daughter watched "twilight" today to break in her new glasses, I'm afraid I watched most of it with her. ur right tho, he's definitely - I was going to use the word you used on FB but after vampfans track record today I'm afraid I'll get moderated!!

  • Comment number 65.

    *mutters behind hand in guilty fashion* -
    I also bought the first twilight book off of ebay! ssssshhhhh!!

  • Comment number 66.

    I don't think we're quite the target audience but who cares!
    I found Twilight absolutely hilarious especially because I watched the parody's first. And his face! lol. Correct, non? ;)
    But still I totally want to be Bella.

    Anyway.. I remain loyal to Mitch. He's my first choice vamp because hey he doesn't look constipated when he's got his blood lust which is always a bonus.

  • Comment number 67.

    I'm off out, talk to you all later when I come back on to watch the vid, again! lol

  • Comment number 68.

    lol super! not sure I'm in the target audience for Being Human either but who cares? I never did act my age.

  • Comment number 69.

    bye singingtwit c u soon

  • Comment number 70.

    does anyone else just absolutely ADORE the way Mitchell looks across at Josie when they're holding hands in the canteen?!?

  • Comment number 71.

    brooksie 70 oh yes,me I do

  • Comment number 72.

    Yes! If the Josie thing wasn't in series 1 I doubt I would have stayed fangirl tbh.

  • Comment number 73.

    I think Barry and the BH prod team have magical powers - just as we think we are beginning to be alright and normal again they throw something like this at us and we're back where we started!!
    I feel like Mitchell - it's an addiction I can't quite kick!!

  • Comment number 74.

    It's almost like they knew I was going over to Twilight fan girldom. They just pull me back in with this vid. And I'm actually his biggest critic on here.

  • Comment number 75.

    It was lovely and there were still so many great moments missed out, it could have been twice as long.
    When Mitchell introduces the neighbour Lee, (the one obsessed with Vin Diesel0 does anyone else think working away is basically a euphemism for been in prison?!

  • Comment number 76.

    i loved it the bit with josie touched me and any exquse to see mitchell with no top on i will take! lol!

  • Comment number 77.

    * mitchell love *

  • Comment number 78.

    Brookesie (70) - oh yes, ooooooh yes ;)

  • Comment number 79.

    Lol erm...Ok :-S you were all saying how beautiful and moving it was I was kinda xpecting something different - well I never you great bunch of girls! Ok I cried at the original Josie scene the first few times I watched it - proably about the fir 20 or so if im honest but that is the first time Ive ever actually laughed at it! Lol oh I hope it doesnt ruin it for me - who am i kidding course it wont its brilliant lol but still...unchained melody? I laughed when it came on and then thought oh dear...maybe this wasnt actuall meant to be a comedy moment :-S

    Well i enjoyed it although probably in the wrong way lol and how could you mention Laurel and Hardy and then not show it?! Hmm Barry I cold go off you! lol

  • Comment number 80.

    @ Comment 79... come on eagle, you big cynic "Time goes by so slowly... and time can do so much..." Those lyrics were made for Mitchell! ;o)

    @ Comment 48... a round of applause from us here at the BH Prod team for some fantastic suggestions from you guys. No Lauren scenes though... Controversial?

  • Comment number 81.

    Am i the only person who thought that mitchells sceens with josi were creepy!

  • Comment number 82.

    I wonder why there were no Lauren scenes... the scene where she asks him to stake her was epic... oh well, still think the best ones made it into vid, well done.

    Emily, I like the scenes with Josie, think about Mitchell is meant to be about twice her age anyway, so the whole concept of creepiness because of an age difference gets a little confusing.

  • Comment number 83.

    thanks guys that was great
    i finally got my computer to say logged on to the net for more then 5 minutes so i could watch it

    i thought it was really well made the song choices were great and i think I've fallen for him all over again (damn you hes so gorgeous)

  • Comment number 84.

    BHPRODUCTION - thing is the scenes with lauren wer brilliant very moving great plot etc and yeah Laurens a good chracter but its Mitchells best bits and Mitchell was a complete **** when it came to Lauren - the way he treated her was apalling and if he was real that woulda put me off compltely lol as it is its all fantasy so I can choose to ignore it if I so wish :-)

    and sorry for being cynical i just assumed youd done it as a kinda comedy cheesey moment lol but obiously not - oops - itd good though

    For more great mitchell moments search "being human fan video killer" i realy wanna get my video up to 500 hits :-) theres bits of all the characters

  • Comment number 85.

    emily why creepy? thought it was lovely personally - a glimpse into his past and i think shes a very important character and will become more so even ow shes gone...

  • Comment number 86.

    Eagle what did you say? the mods are out in force obviously.

    (85) Yeah I kinda got the impression she was part of the reason he had given up drinking and recruiting, plus he seemed to like the idea of being with her forever.

  • Comment number 87.

    Ugh I cant remember what I put now I called Mitchell a something but I starred it out which normaly theyre fine with - I dont mind ethe way just wish theyd be consistent so we know what we can and cant write! Ok rant over...

    Basically I think I said about Lauren - BHPRODUCTION asked why we didnt pick any Lauren moments - personally I think lauren was a great character and great storylines etc brilliant for the show - but as far as Mitchell goes they were his worst not best - he was a complete (erm word...help?) erm idiot? when it came to lauren the way he treated her was absolutely apalling so certainly none of his best moments...my thoughts anyway

    Oh there was also a shameless plug for my youtube fan video at the end although no link so figured itd be ok :-( just want to get it up to 500 views! (my screen name is same as on here but with 4444 instead of 4 :-D come on that has to be allowed...)

  • Comment number 88.

    oh jesus i give up - off to the forum before i chuck the laptop at the wall.

    Apologies Barry and BeingHumanProuduction - great site just need to get yourselves some new moderators.

  • Comment number 89.

    Thatll probably get removed now too for saying jesus - it might offend the christians...sorry im being very childish now i know but im annoyed - some of the comments that have been left on here that actually are offensive/off topic etc yet they delete a perfectly valid one about mitchell and lauren and why they wernt in the best bits where the strongest language used was idiot? Oh please

  • Comment number 90.

    oh and i was calling mitchell an idiot not the fella who made the video :-)

  • Comment number 91.

    eagle 88; wasn't going to dwell but just out of interest plase read my 17 on the other page and tell me why that was sent to the MODS for nearly 2 days...is it me?

  • Comment number 92.

    I duuno why they was creepy it was defiantly sweet how much they cared for each other but it just creeped me out a bit lol Im thinking maybe its just jealousy :)
    The video was still great though cheers guys x

  • Comment number 93.

    hi guys, dont think anyones here at the moment
    had to run away quickly on Friday as 13 yr old firstborn daughter proudly told her father I'd been on the BBC Being Human blog for 4 straight hours! which was indeed the truth, but hey, we don't need to broadcast our obsession do we???

  • Comment number 94.

    Emily - jealousy lol! you and me both mate. Not the fact that it was creepy, the fact that Josie got to snog Mitchell!!
    *drifts off to strands of Unchained Melody...*

  • Comment number 95.

    Emily: My mum used to be and still is a big Gene Pitney fan and her favourite song was called Looking through the Eyes of Love (it has some lovely words in it)....I think that is what Mitchell is doing when he looks at Josie...he doesn't seem to have noticed that she has aged.

    My favourite bit of the Josie thing is when she gets on the bed with him and he smiles at her then sort of muzzels down on to the top of her head ....just lovely

  • Comment number 96.

    stop it vampfan, thats my fave bit too! I will have to watch the vid again if you carry on like this

  • Comment number 97.

    oh, who cares. I just went and watched it anyway.

  • Comment number 98.

    singing has assured me that you cannot wear these tinterweb box thingies out but but every 10 minutes for 48 hs is pushing it a bit....but who cares....scuse me I am just going ....will be back in just over 6 mins!!

  • Comment number 99.

    oh dear! oh dear! oh dear!....don't get any uglier do he??

  • Comment number 100.

    lol you lot are more bonkers than me :-) yes e is lovely and yes the bit on the bed is lovely and i do think he is lovely although for pure fantasy land in my head think i like naughty mitchell more :-) ut yes for show purpoes and yes he is lovely...oh stop ill be off on ne in minute as well!

    still like the swagger though :-)
