New to BH? Watch out, this post contains spoilers from series one...

  

The Being Human directors are a lovely bunch.  

 

Not content with creating six jaw-dropping eps of BH, they've been in touch with us about giving you even more.  Here's their chance to tell you exactly how they made Being Human so great via some exclusive commentaries of their favourite scenes.

 

First up is Toby Haynes, who tells us the secrets behind one our favourite scenes of episode one - meeting the trio.

    Note to self: take observant off CV lol. Although, actually, I don't really know who he was referring to anyway :S

    Brilliant. It's always nice to hear commentary. Thanks Blog team and Mr Haynes :)

    Thanks for that BH prod team. That's just the kind of stuff I love - can't wait to see the other directors' stuff!

    yayyyyy this is what i like to see!! Commentaries are awesome. Thanks to Toby H for taking the time to do it and thanks in advance to future contributors!

    V. interesting. I like the random Dario Argento reference on a 'deep red' helmet. Hehe.

    Finally got round to watching this. Every time I remembered it was here I was doing something else and couldn't watch it. Lol. Anyway yay! I love commentaries! They're so interesting and give such an incite to small workings of the show. Though I've found actors make the best commentaries. They go hyper a lot and it's a laugh. lol. I don't know why the actors seem to be the only ones who do it. In my experience other people tend to be more calm. Someone's gonna go off and find a commentary where a writer or director or someone goes hyper now and wave it in my face now arn't they? I'm just gonna shut up now.

    That was great....don't have a clue who Dario Argento is though

    *runs off to Google it*

    Commentaries are fab though..it's great to get inside the head of the director rather than the actor though...gives a different perspective :)

    Lol C no comment - I love the Gavin and Stacey ones - they have them in vision so you can actually watch them watching it in the bottom corner thats really cool and they have nearly the whole cast - about 5/6 of them for the series 2 ones plus the director and obviously because James and Ruth write it we see the writers too which is great - they're by far the best commentaries I've found to date :-D but this one was brilliant :-)

    Katy, is there a little speaker button at the bottom right of your screen? It should have a big red x through it. Click on that and untick the box that says mute.

    Or in the f1-12 buttons there might be one that has a speaker with a cross through in blue at the bottom. Mine's on f2. Try clicking fn at the bottom between ctrl and alt) and that at the same time.

    If that fails look on your computer (or speakers if they're external) for a spiny dial thing and spin it.

    How did we not notice that the pizza was half devoured in a matter of seconds?
    My favourite commentaries usually involve a producer/director and a couple of actors. You get some silly moments then as well as the interesting background information.
