A spooky, kickass drama like Being Human would not be spooky and/or kickass without one key ingredient... the night.

Yes, setting a scene in the dark of night sounds simple, but the reality is altogether more complicated. Well, we say complicated, what we actually mean is tiring. Everyone from the cast and crew to the security guards and, of course, the tea lady have to alter their sleep patterns and work a totally different schedule to maximise the time between dusk and dawn.

This week we caught up with the gang in a car park in Bristol to find out how this punishing 8pm - 5am shooting schedule was taking its toll.

    WOW!! Thanks Team I wasn't expecting that at all. I just came on to chat about my fave episode last night on TV but what a treat. So poor Mitchell receives a punch ..could it be George that throws it hmmm...So night shoots for the next 2 weeks. Maybe I could turn up about 5am with a cooupla bacon butties and then tuck our 2 boys into bed until they're required in the afternoon what a fab job!

    Incidentally what's that background music being played in the clip?

  • Comment number 2.

    Ooh new video!! Yay! Don't give away much do ya? Still poor Aidan. Hopefully he won't be too tired (Wow that's an odd thought. He's probably asleep now. hehe)

  • Comment number 3.

    Great new vid, then I realised I couldn't watch it, it told me to Try Again Later....noooooo, need it noooowwwwww, please!!! Help somebody I need my fix! :-(

  • Comment number 4.

    .....mini rant over, I'd love to see that vid though so if any of the BH production lot could sort it if they can of course....fab, I'll love you for ever and bring over some home-made cake as long as you tell me where you're filming. And get the gorgeous one to let me know his fave cake ;-))

    Driving (1): saw last nite's episode for 1st time right through. The Josie n Mitchell bit got to me, dreamt about it, woke up "wrecked" yeah really wrecked not Mitchell-wrecked, I'd never look as good as him. Mind you when he gets to my age....though he won't will he cause he's immortal, silly me. I'm drooling again....what I wouldn't give to have been the actress playing Josie....all of the gorgeous one without the embarrassment of having to play the scene naked, me that is not him, he can be as naked as he wants, he doesn't seem to mind too much thinking about what he said on the last vid when describing the new woman for BH2. Does this mean we'll be seeing as much of TG1 as we did when he was Des Rom???

  • Comment number 5.

    ....not that I'm detracting from the acting, you understand lol... it's just that he's in a no-lose situation, great acting, great looking. Felt I had to comment on that..

  • Comment number 6.

    Yay I liked that one :-) Mr P you really are a very talented young man :-) thank you.

    Think thats as rough as Ive ever seen Aidan...and hes still gorgeous - worrying. I'd be well suited to night shoots I don't sleep anyway lol alhtough I'd probably drive everyone nuts they'd be there like the walking dead and I'd be dancing round wide awake...which is in fact what happens when I work til 1/2 in the morning lol but hey it keeps everyone awake :-D

    As much as I love Russell he really doesn't get the concept of a treat does he lol "hood up hood down" try "hoody on hoody off" lol tha would be a treat :-)

    Anyway thanks Mr P :-) great video

  • Comment number 7.

    Eagle you've whetted my appetite, I reeaaalllly need to see the vid, getting withdrawal symptoms...;-)

  • Comment number 8.

    Lol sorry Id put it on youtube but I dont know how to get it off here :-S

    Nobody seems ot have questioned why none of these videos have Lenora in? Do you rekon its just because we're not allowed to see her new costume?

    Oh and just realised its not a hoody Russells wearing its a coat lol and Im meant to be observant :-S see its that Aidan video it really has turned my brain to mush

  • Comment number 9.

    God I can't even spell today lol

  • Comment number 10.

    Just watched it again (I'm reaaaaaaally trying to put off doing the washing up lol) it looks at one point like Mitchell's ready to jump? That'd be interesting - we haven't really seen him test his immortality in series 1 so it'd be interesting to see how Toby figures that one out - we still don't know all the BH vampire rules - would he just stand straight up again and be fine? Or would he need to take time to recover? Or because he's on the wagon would he need to feed again in order to recover...? Being staked is kinda vampire murder not just a "normal" death lol so we don't really know...

    Ooh exciting :-)

  • Comment number 11.

    Jump.....punched.....whadda they trying to do to the poor darling, finish him off before I do hehe....I'm getting so desperate to see this vid, am turning into a gibbering idiot, folks at work keep wondering why I'm typing like a, well gibbering idiot maniac and furtively glancing over my shoulder so no-one can work out what I'm doing...this is dong my blood prssure no good now I can't spell..I'm losing it cos that should have been doing not dong oh hell. I think if he jumped he's indestructible so he won't die, or will he, hope not, I want a third series in 2011!! lol If he needs to recover there'll be enough of us M-people to look after him and soothe his fevered brow or, er, sorry can't go any further, need the pills ;-)

  • Comment number 12.

    Mmmmuch better, more composed now or as much as I can be.

    Reckon they've been noticing that the Russell/Aiden fanbase is pretty popular and that the vids have more of them in rather than Lenora to feed our increasingly insatiable appetites which let's face it will be, um, increasing in intensity right up to the new series and then we'll all be gibbering idiot maniacs .... they've stirred a hornets nest, there's no going back chaps, M-power geddit? is taking over the world.

    Remember reading in one of the articles or maybe a vid that staking wasn't necessarily the ultimate death for a vampire, something about it depends on how long the stake is in or something.....maybe I dreamt it...am I going potty...answers on a postcard at least the spellings improved if not the grammar lol Hope to get home at reasonable time tonite and will see the vid before anything else. Keep em coming Mr P!

  • Comment number 13.

    Vampfan - if you come on tonight little pressie for you:


    It is coming up in the search now though - yay :-)

    Right I'd better get off to work now - I get to go do a job I hate with people who I'm convinced have forgotten how to smile after so many years of working there lol - for less than minimum wage - oh I'm a lucky lucky girl lol see you later guys have a good evening :-)

  • Comment number 14.

    ok..first up...message to eagle: watched the Aidan video again just now and tried to watch it in terms of technical brilliance rather than just being googley -eyed over the beautiful one...only just realising now how really really clever this video is in terms of syncing song with actions..and yeah..the Comic Con bit makes me laugh..looks like Aidan is singing 'yeah' in tune with song...clever clever girl. Glad to see it up on youtube now so that a larger audienec can see it...hope you get the George video up there likewise.

    Now ..new vidclip...loved it of course BHteam. Don't think our boys are still struggling with night shoots ( and hence no need for Aidan to be cranky...that's such an Irish term!) as I think these were filmed early august and they're now onto other scenes....with the new 'Lucy' etc.

    Russell baby...agree with eagle: it takes more than you taking your hood off to whet our appetite..how about you taking your entire kit off?

    Don't think that Mitchell is about to throw himself off the car park floor...why would he?....he's obviously being given a hard time by someone/others...possibly vampires *somewhat annoyed* at what happened to Herrick ...Aidan hinted at this in recent interview.
    I don't think it's George who's punched him..I think it's the guy he's talking to who's hidden by camera and wearing something like a track suit top? George and Mitchell when together seem to be looking for/hiding from someone so 'acting' together rather against each other

    Yeah..I've been thinking about where Leanora has been in all recent vids...either she's not really in early scenes or they are hiding her for some reason....I don't think that she'll ahve a new costume but maybe they'll let her jazz it up a bit ,,you know ..with jackets, boots, habdbags hey. I'm sure you all already know that she's going to be the star in a new BBC production called Material Girl which we'll be able to see later this year...maybe she's still involved with that?

    angloirish gal....shame you didn't know about these shoots...you could have been up there with your binoculars....!

  • Comment number 15.

    oooh!! New one...several things to say:-

    1) Once again, many thanks team....it is a bit like having a favourite Aunt who looks over you and spoils you rotten.

    2) Please do not write 'all-nighter' then show AT...I cannot cope with it.

    3) Russell in his hood.....did anyone else want to pull the cord tight and scrunch the hood up over his face and give him a big wet snog?.....no?....(maybe just me, then...but knowing our RT fans can't beleive that)

    4) Who the hell is making Mitchell need blood capsules?? Don't make me have to shlep to Bristol to protect him

    Now...a bit like Xmas morn (saving the best til last) going off to look at eagle's stuff.

    But seriously Team, many thanks again...love yer loads.

  • Comment number 16.

    eagle baby (13) clearly I don't know your circunstances but what is a bright, sparky, talented girl doing living in the sticks on her own in such a job? Time for a life change baby.

  • Comment number 17.

    Eagle:: Watched it...!!!

    Did you do it on purpose?? What have I ever done wrong to you???

    Why are you trying to send me right round the twist??

    Seriously...lovely mench of the Mitchellettes....In my opinion your best one yet....thanks, eagle....may have to watch it again (you know, purely for research)

  • Comment number 18.

    Lionesskeeper and other non uk fans:...I'm sure you probably knew this but I didn't and have just noted this on BBC Youtube page....

    'Because of the way that the BBC is funded in the UK through the licence fee, we cannot make videos available outside of the UK.

    The https://www.youtube.com/BBCWorldwide channel is run by our commercial subsidiary, BBC Worldwide, so does contain BBC videos that are available across the world.'

    ok...this may explain the lack of access to the vidclips on this blog for all out of uk...but...why can all these clips not be put up on youtube in such a way that they go on https://www.youtube.com/BBCWorldwide channel thereby making them accesible to all?

    If everyone could see them within a day of them going on this blog then we would have many more people viewing them, loving them, interested in the show and ( if mention was made on each clip abou this blog) thereby blogging on this site...it would be a win- win situation for everyone....including the BBC who might attract more viewres for the showe and we all know hoe ratings conscious everyone is.
    Is there something I'm missing here BHTeam..why can't this be so?

  • Comment number 19.

    At last got to see the Night vid, great stuff. My desperate addiction is now assuaged!

    Russell seems to be coping but poor Aidan....now he looks wrecked in a good, gorgeous way of course ;-) I think I recognise the multi-storey they were in but chances are they'll move around the place more so even I can't keep track Browneyes, bins or no bins *binoculars*! I'll be keeping my ear to the ground for any new filming reports and shall let you know the instant I hear, promise.

    Now back to the other vids.... There's no keeping a good M-person back once her dander's up lol.

  • Comment number 20.

    Oh BBC how you tease me so... When will the BBC America website catch up with you? Ugh!

    eagle- Just subscribed to your vids on Youtube. They are fab.

  • Comment number 21.

    angloirishgal:::not many people can do the 'wrecked in a good gorgeous way'....but yes...leave it to Mr. Turner

  • Comment number 22.

    Just had to see the vid eagle gal did...have put it onto my favourites so I'm never deprived again lol

    Can't remember whether it was that vid or another but there was a just perfect shot where he was close-up but not too close to camera, looked down and then gave a heart-melting look at the camera again, just for a second or two. I literally flinched if that was acting I'll eat his fingerless gloves as well as mine.....and he needs an Oscar Bafta Tony whatever award right this second. I've never seen anyone look like that, ever.... he looked vulnerable, shy..... I'm now lying down damp flannel darkened room you name it :-))) Will try to remember what vid it was so will need to trawl thru a few now that I think about it...

  • Comment number 23.

    Got it....eagle's vid (13) its about 0:45 seconds in.....lovely lovely lovely heavy sigh....you couldn't make it up Im going to play it again and freeze it just to make sure Ive not imagined the whole thing, any excuse lol

  • Comment number 24.

    BH team....on a serious note now before I really must go off and do something I'm supposed to have done ages ago ...after checking out the various vids and other stuff, it looks hard work, not glamorous, tough sometimes and fun others, but the work that goes on behind the scenes is much appreciated by us fans so though we go on about the drooly bits sure we're all aware of the planning and organisation it takes...I take my hats off to you all, tea ladies, actors, writers, the lot. Have just so enjoyed this series I can't tell you; it's been different, innovative and incredibly well acted.

    Enough now before it begins to sound as if I'm grovelling...I'm not ... just thought it would be nice to try and sound a bit sincere for once.

    PS if you ever fancy resurrecting Josie look no further - sorry I couldn't resist that!

  • Comment number 25.

    angloirishgal(24) Could not agree more,,,,just because some of them....not me, of course...drool over the looks of certain actors.....does not mean that we don't understand and appreciate all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make such a fab prog.....well put anglo.....

  • Comment number 26.

    gutted where is the middle age woman running her hands through mitchells hair in this vid?
    I was beginning to think it was a running theme. Maybe these ladies have shares in hair products, or some bored lonely house wives have broken on to the set disguised as make up artists so they can stroke the lions mane

  • Comment number 27.

    ....ah thanks for that VF, really sweet of you. I just felt a bit guilty banging *that word again* on about the gorgeous ones when lots of others were involved too...saw the vid about the night shoot and it sort of hit me....and it's nice to give people credit when they've done a grand job... after all most of us know what it's like to slog yourself silly at work and be ignored don't we so yeah a bit of encouragement and appreciation is good I reckon.

    Know what you mean about the trawling through the hair stuff. They get paid for it....we'd do it for free if the Beeb fancied a bit of cost-cutting....jeez, we'd pay them lol What are they waiting for? ;-)

  • Comment number 28.

    ....really can't say that word (27) and TG1's in the same sentence....I've come over all unnecessary again and must retire before I implode..

    sweet dreams blogging folk back tomorrow x

  • Comment number 29.

    I hope they're not ignoring Lenora outright just because of the rabid throngs of us clamoring for Russell or Aidan. Lenora is awesomeness too!

    Judging from the comments, it sounds like Russell's trying to either test the lower limits of our rabidity or trying to tone down his increasing sex symbol status by going back to dorky goodness.

    If it was to test the low end of our adoration, I can tell him he's got to try harder. Don't expect me to throw my panties at you while I watch you clip your toenails (not that I wear panties).

    Russell does deserve his own version of D.D.E.B., though (David Duchovny Estrogen Brigade from when "The X-Files" was huge). It has to be unisex though to accommodate us token gay boys in the bunch. Here's my lame naming contribution:

    SORTOF (Some of Russell Tovey's Overzealous Fans)

    Any better ideas are welcome :)

    As others have said, thanks so much Production Team and everyone else involved with the blog. I can't believe how frequently there's a new video on this site with another glimpse at the new season. It's very impressive and much appreciated. The accessibility is unlike anything I've ever seen on a show.

  • Comment number 31.

    Evening all had night from hell not read your comments yet but anyone still here?

  • Comment number 32.

    evening eagle and all...just returned from dancing...can't believe I have energy left to blog but will peobably not blog on again before Sunday eve so here I am for a while.

    Oh_Suzi (26)..ha ha..yes, I hadn't really noticed age of women employed to run fingers through the hair of the beautiful one..dame, that means that I would be judged 'not suitable'...makes you ponder doesn't it on reasons why?

    Also..why are most of the crew on these productions men?...ok..I'm naive.

  • Comment number 33.

    One more video I can't see. :p

  • Comment number 34.

    Off opic here.... We're just watching the Mercury awards for music ( a rerun I think) and Man dancing to La Roux ..she ( and her band) are fantastic ,..we saw them a few months ago, and they should have won but apparantly didn't. Is it me or does noone else understand a word that Florence ( Florence and the Machine ) actually sings?

  • Comment number 35.

    Brown - thanks for comments about the video :-) glad you think its clever lol dont get told that too often :-P Toby did say that Annies getting a new costume though :-)

    Oh and re the job - unfortunately I want to work in TV (behind the scenes not acting) so this job is just filling a gap - well hopefully. Thing is when hopefully someone rings/emails me back saying "hey we need a runner for our new video/tv show/film can you come to London for a couple of days/weeks/months?" I need to be able to say "Hell yes" and leg it there as soon as lol hence why I need a rubbish but flexible job :-( but tonight has seriously tested my "future career is more important than current sanity" mindset :-S its been even worse than usual.

    Vampfan - haha I did really wanna pull the drawstring thing on Russells hood :-P And I apologize for the video lol but glad you liked it :-) I think its the one of mine I've watched the most actually - sexy back's my big cheer up song though can't help but smile and dance when its on lol

    Angloirishgal - about the hiding in bins thing - in the "meeting aidan" video the blog team asked us for questions to put to him I asked him if he had loads of girls chasing him yet and he said he thought they must be hiding in the bushes or something lol so was that you he was referring to? Oh and I love that shot of Aidan too :-) aough he does remind me far too much of my ex in it :-S think its the eyes lol

    Leonora - Thanks for subscribing :-) and thanks for the comments glad you like them :-)

    Grygazol - "our token gay boy" lol love it but yeah totally agree you know I'm a Russell girl at heart even if I do drool over Aidan as much as the next person lol names arent my strong point though sorry :-S

    Oh and vampfan I looked wrecked and completely knackered pretty much most of the time lol and believe me it is a verrrrrrrrry hard look to pull off :-P

    And absolutely agree - of course we drool over those gorgeous men but we do (well considering my career ambitions I hope I do) understand the work that goes into the making of such an awesome show - and we also really appreciate the work Mr P does too letting us know whats going on and keeping us all so brilliantly entertained :-)

  • Comment number 36.

    Woaaaaah mega long post sorry just replying to a nights worth of chit chat and lots of lovely comments about my videos :-) all of which are much appreciated :-)

    Brown - all the crew being men hmm I'm not entirely sure why but from experience it seems that most of the crew actually on set are male whereas the bods in doing the editing etc the majority are female...dunno if that goes for all productions but just from what I've noticed :-) but hey I'm a woman and I want to work actually on set so...but then I never have been a "girly girl" lol dunno if that has anything to do with it...

  • Comment number 37.

    Well it was mega long til they referred it...maybe it was too long? I'll try again lol

  • Comment number 38.

    eagle baby...was it something I said or something you said?

  • Comment number 40.

    Ahh ok think Ive got it - I quoted grygazols gay boys comment perhaps they thought I was using it in an offensive way? I dunno I give up wiht the mods I really do :-S

  • Comment number 41.

    can't be that..I think I'm the queen of long posts aren't I?

  • Comment number 42.

    Haha I think you might be now lol I was before you came along :-) well I'll post the rest without Grygazols quote:

    Oh and Brown your bit is in my previous post :-)

  • Comment number 43.

    Bit surprised about David Duchovny ..or did Grygazol just mean that he's fancied by gays?

    Liked his idea for SORTOF (Some of Russell Tovey's Overzealous Fans)...thing we should use it...!

  • Comment number 44.

    obviously tired..I mean...think we should use it!

  • Comment number 45.

    oh...and in the Comic con conference ( or interview...can't remember which) Toby said that Annie would not be given a new costume

  • Comment number 46.

    Haha yeah i got that :-) theres now a picture of Russell in the foyer at work (some rubbish staff profile "whos your favourite actor" lets put pictures of them about thing but still hes there and cheers me up slightly on nights like tonight lol)

    Eugh think the fact we have "staff profiles" along with name badges is in itself one of the most depressing things about my job lol just shows how pathetic...just eugh can't even get words out thinking about it :-S can't wait to get out I really can't

  • Comment number 47.

    Did he? He said somewhere she was getting a new one...well he's lying to one of us lol or maybe it was lenora who said she was actually...Oh i dunno maybe he just changed his mind.

    Hmm just realised I haven't had my lunch yet - thats probably why I feel sick either that or its thinking about work lol

  • Comment number 48.

    ..and I just lost internet connection for a while...must be the whole of America suddenly going online or something..

    Man retired to bed so I'd better join him or he'll sulk ( not really...he's a sweetie)

    Talk Sunday eve

  • Comment number 49.

    Lol goodnight - I'm off to have my lunch :-) night night

  • Comment number 50.

    Why do I end up getting up so early on Saturdays its killing me...at least I can sympathise vaguely with the BH team, I could just about manage a fortnight of night shoots but I'd be cranky myself for a week afterwards, or maybe I'd just join the vampire hots then I wouldn't need a lot of sleep.

    Good to see Irish and Eagle back, hope you've recovered from your dancing brown and lousy session at work eagle....ready for a new round of BH watching Yay :-)

    Eagle Sadly I haven't been hiding in the bins though if they were clean I'd be sorely tempted to drill holes in a one and hunker down in an appropriate filming spot....I'd be safe from the bin guys who only come around once a fortnight....it'd have to be roomy, I like a spot of luxury lol...just remember to slip me the odd sarnie and glass of red wine (has to be red really).

    Kept playing the vids, can't get enough....froze that glance-at-the-camera bit once or twice to see if I hadn't been imagining it (I hadn't) Music is just great, the more I listen to it, the more I am loving Sexy Back...even sitting down I was jiggling around in the chair in time to the rhythm just wishing I was 25 again *heavy sigh*.

    Question ; why have most of us got lousy jobs...it's not just the recession, I just fell into mine when I left college it certainly wasn't what I wanted to do and I've been pigeonholed ever since....grrrr frustration or what

    Oh earlier I think I said vampire hots....should have been host....no prizes for guessing where my mind had wandered off to...talking of which one more go at a couple of vids before I disappear for a few hours ;;-) catch you guys later x

  • Comment number 51.

    Lousy jobs? I dunno I guess people doing jobs they love are out either living the high life with the exciting, wonderful people they work with or going straight to bed because they've had such an exciting day lol rather than coming home ****** off and coming on here to talk about vampires lol well thats my guess anyway :-P but dont worry - when (not if!) I'm working in tv I wont abandon the blog lol I dont think it'd be too unhealthy to have a slight fangirl side do you? :-) as long as its kept miles away from my professional side...well thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it :-D

  • Comment number 52.

    Good for you eagle don't want to see you disappear, keep up the blogfest. Am with you on the job thing it's a pain but we just get on with it until something else comes along, one day it'll happen and we'll be seeing your name up there, just keep on believing girl :-).....you're in good company.

  • Comment number 53.

    Haha thanks :-) its just a bit of a waiting game now - trying to get a few odd days experience here and there but at the same time i need to do my awful job to pay my rent and bills - catch 22 really but hey im stubborn enough to stick with it :-D

    My nans just watched episode 5 on iplayer (shes at my auntys - showed her how to do it :-P) got this text off her: "going to need a different form :-) haha that was brilliant im still laughing what a horrible man! but mitchell doesnt die does he?! you have to tell me!" bless her shes absolutely loving it its brilliant i actually have a real life person to geek out with lol

  • Comment number 54.

    Aw that's cute, good for yer nan! Does she drool over the gorgeous one? Was wading my way through vids I've never seen and came across the different form bit on a couple of them, that made me lol for sure.

    Good that you have someone to natter to about the vamp / furry stuff a lot of my mates just wouldn't get it, they're into their jobs and kids mainly so this is it for me, 'fraid, it's this or go totally round the twist only joking....wouldn't have far to go luckily hehe. :-)

  • Comment number 55.

    Its on one of mine :-) my smooth criminal one...ahem thats not a shameless plug...its really not...much... :-)

    Yeah she thinks he's gorgeous too but she wants me to marry George lol she tells me that on a regular basis :-P trouble is no real life man can possible be good enough now lol he's set the bar way too high

  • Comment number 56.

    angloirishgal...seem to have spent the last 24 hours agreeing with everything you have said....but just got to say (23) that brief clip of him in eagle's vid....?? If it is the one in his black & white shirt, where he looks all cute and vunerable and tired, then once again, my dear....could not agree more

  • Comment number 57.

    lol George seems to be the man of choice for marriage hehe, something to do with him being a nice young man, educated and so on I reckon....in the real world, think Mitchell's character comes over as being too dark and dangerous for a lot of nans etc to imagine their progeny even dating......mind you I'd bunk off and see him anyway if it were me....I wish ;-)

    Strange that Annie started off as being the vulnerable, dithery one and then ended up being so strong in episode 6 yet its almost the reverse with Mitchell.... Anne and George looked to him for strength, to be a rock, and though he was, and is, he is in a sense way more vulnerable now..... think that comes across really well in the series, the way the characters changed, but it was so subtle I didn't realise it until episode 5.

    Unchained Melody will never be the same again....that scene is just incredible...roll on Thursday yay :-)

    Oooh VF you're back good, thanks hun, yeah it's weird, great minds think alike!

    Been noticing all these things about the team and stuff I've been catching up with...and it was that clip around 45 secs into the video...think he was wearing white although I was mesmerised by his eyes and the look...reckon there was a bit of the real Aidan coming out there or else his acting is stupendous which it is of course! Why did we never know about this man a year ago..he should've had breaks over here waaaaay before then? Praps he just couldn't get out of a contract or something.

    Will be sure to remove all make-up and stock up on the tissues for Thursday as it's the big scene ... come Friday I'll be in little bits but just can't tear myself away lol

  • Comment number 59.

    I reckon he is a bit shy....well I would say that wouldn't I?
    We had this debate a couple of months ago following one of his interveiws when someone said he came across as a bit big-headed, but I just saw someone who could not beleive his luck at landing the role.

    If you watch the 'Answering fans questions' vid....when he finishes answering each question he does a little giggle and a look at the interveiwer as if to say...was that OK? Awww...quite vunerable in a lovely way.

    As far as wiping off the slap...I am leaving mine on this time......thought that the streaking mascara might make me look a bit vampiric

  • Comment number 60.

    Lol Id like to think its my nan being protective you know Mitchells the bad boy etc but unfortunately I know her all too well and fear the reality is that she just wants him to herself lol oh hiya vf :-) youve recovered from my video then? :-) its had 140 views woohoo :-)

  • Comment number 61.

    Oh and that shot is the "Real" Aidan in the sense he was doing a mini interview not acting :-)

  • Comment number 62.

    Hi eagle:: can't blame your nan for that, she sounds like our sort of peeps.

    and no, not recovered yet....not by a long way...but ooooh what fun not recovering!! He He

  • Comment number 63.

    Hehe how many of those 140 views were you lol

  • Comment number 64.

    139......give me a break...a girl's gotta sleep sometime!!

  • Comment number 65.

    Lol well thanks :-) glad you like it I just keep skipping it to 3.50 I know I was the one who did it but it still makes me giggle :-P

  • Comment number 66.

    Have watched your vid 2x more times in last half hr eagle blows my mind each time, great stuff...that look of Aiden's into camera is just for one second yet it gets me every time real gut-wrenching stuff....I'm dribbling now

    Your nan sounds a hoot tell her she has to learn to share....at this rate we'll need to clone him to make sure there's enough to go round ;-))

    VF talk about agreeing with you...I'm with you on the thing about him being a bit unsure about his new status if you like, as if he's a bit careful about doing the right thing...not at all bigheaded, no, not our darlin!!

    Hope you don't get your sofa covers dirty with the mazzy on Thursday - I did last week and it's a s*d to get off, so it's the paint-stripping procedure for me on Thurs

  • Comment number 67.

    Not the mazzy on the sofa I'm worried about...ooh steady girl, mods.

    eagle the more I watch this vid the less sure I am of my favourite bit...am like a eight year old in a toy shop...want that one...no, that one, no, that one.....trouble is I am saying this aloud and getting some very funny looks The kids rolling their eyes and saying 'oh it's just mum with her vampire again!!'

  • Comment number 68.

    Speaking of family::::hubby has just nearly fallen over the coffee table whilst watching an ad for a well known airline...with all the air-hostesses walking through the airport in their red uniforms.... I mean, REALLY, how dare he ogle other women...damned cheek!!

  • Comment number 69.

    Not the mazzy VF hehehe...gotta watch the Mods I had a great retort for a blog a couple of days ago but there was no way I could post it. They'd have the men in white coats round lol...there are no bad bits in the vid are there? Like you say, it gives you everything except the real McCoy....dear god does he ever read this stuff we put on here do you think? Or maybe the BH team tell the actors what we write? Mind you it's all a bit late now so perhaps we should just lay back and enjoy our blogging ;-)

  • Comment number 70.

    oh my gawd did I just say that last bit....sorreeee

  • Comment number 71.

    Yes...you did just say that last bit...forgiven.

    I assume/hope they do not read these.......I would never forgive myself for being part of scaring the life out of them.

  • Comment number 72.

    Lol you guys do crack me up - and I needed it today! Barry reckons the actors read occasionally but that thought worries me slightly lol only our crazed fangirl side gets shown on here so I'm pretty sure thye'd think we're all completely off our heads :-P

  • Comment number 73.

    I think if the actors read it occasionally then it's okay. I mean for one they don't know who we really are. And two I tend to watch what I say anyway. Most of the stuff I wouldn't want the actors seeing is on the forum and can be deleted if needs be. ;)

    Though I think it was Bunny said that Russell was answering questions at one of the conventions and asked one of the people who were answering the question if they were someone from the blog. I can't remember what username it was though, no one I reckognised. Ask Bunny.

  • Comment number 74.

    Hehe yeah well I think if I was them I'd have a read even though I probably shouldn't I can imagine it would drive you nuts after a while

  • Comment number 75.

    Oh well that's OK I've been eccentric for years, anyhow actors can be a bit the same so I'm thinking they probably know we're a) mad, b) verging on insanity, c) on the happy pills (as opposed to the stupid ones) or all of the aforementioned. At least they know what we think of them and we're honest at least....and we have put in a few constructive remarks which are serious and thought-provoking.....I think we should be forgiven.

    What are the chances of some of our wittier remarks being picked up on and used in some form or other eh? Perhaps in the form of blackmail perhaps? lol

    Come to think of it, I've never heard it called blogging before ;-)

  • Comment number 76.

    I think if I was famous I would have to read what was written about me on the net. I just wouldn't be able to keep myself away from it.

    The thing is we only really say complimentary things on here so I don't think it could be too bad for the actors to read lol.

  • Comment number 77.

    lol anglo I would hope that no one would use this stuff to blackmail us. Though I think most people who know me know this stuff, so I don't think they'd be that successful.

  • Comment number 78.

    I am normally quite quiet and happy to stand at the back...when I get on here...I get a sort of gobby/exitable 'blog-rage'...so in my defence.....I blame you lot....I should not be encouraged!!

  • Comment number 79.

    Personally I blame the show. With almost everything else I'm quite quite, get me onto BH and I don't shut up. It's not that other topics don't get me to do that, but BH is one of the ones that does.

    Does that make sense?

  • Comment number 80.

    Ahh VF we girlfans can skit and have fun and encourage each other to be a bit er potty...it's allowed, we'd never be unpleasant, specially when fighting over The Gorgeous 1....cloning is such a good idea don't you think? Keep us off the streets.

    Let it all out, it's healthy. lol

    On vampire mythology and even I think this is a bit of an odd question but maybe somebody out there can answer it...how often would vamps need to feed? Is it a regular four-hour thing or just when they fancy a pint or two? Or when they get low on iron?? I've got a great idea but it's a bit long to go into here maybe another blog..

    And while we're on the subject, how was Bernie going to feed? Is his Mum going to donate the odd litre or two to tie him over? Bit difficult specially when Mitchell wanted her to "keep him good". Answers on a postcard please...:-)

  • Comment number 81.

    *quite quiet

  • Comment number 82.

    Anglo, From what is suggested in the show, it would appear that Vamps can survive on human food.

  • Comment number 83.

    Oh OK thanks Cieria missed that bit...what caused the Bernie question was the look on Fleur's face when he met her and Mitchell at the station and said "I'm hungry"...it was like she was thinking 'and what you be hungry for, exactly?' It just got me thinking...

  • Comment number 84.

    I think from that look we do have to wonder how much Mitchell has actually told her. I mean the way that she says "okay" is almost like she's bracing herself for something. It's hard to know really. And I don't think keeping a kid from drinking blood was the only thing on his mind at that point.

  • Comment number 85.

    Sorry gals, got a screaming headache, must go a take something for it (this is not a euphemism) lol

  • Comment number 86.

    The Vamps that I read about are The Blackdagger Brotherhood. They are a race of vampire warriors who protect the race against a society formed to destroy them. These guys are really hot....anyway they must feed from female vampires...human blood is not strong enough for them and would not sustain them. As these vamps are mainly aristocrats, their blood is strong and so they may not have to feed for many months...but they will die if they don't feed. And these guys will burn up if they go out in daylight.

    A long winded answer to say ...don't really know

  • Comment number 87.

    I think that's the great thing about vampires. There's so many different takes on them. Everyone has an individual idea of them.

  • Comment number 88.

    Hehe I love the fact you're all saying "with everything else im quite quiet" etc lol...ahem yeah Im quiet sometimes...honestly...I'm sure there must some kind of situation when I'm quiet...just can't think of it lol. Nah I can be well behaved when needs be - if I'm needing to be professional etc like when I did "the serious bit" of parents evenings and stuff but I'd just rather not :-D

  • Comment number 89.

    Being loud and hyper and stuff is fun. I couldn't imagine being like that all the time though. It would wear me out tbh. lol

  • Comment number 90.

    Lol bit like barrowman always wonder how he stays awake :-) although i love gareth david lloyds answer to that...have you seen it C? silly question really course you have lol

  • Comment number 91.

    Oh and yeah I agree - so many different takes on the vampires I do have my own theories but best not get me started lol

  • Comment number 92.

    Woah no I don't think I have eagle? What was his answer? or can't it be repeated in places like this? ;)

    tbh I'm kind out of touch with all things Torchwood related at the moment. Children of Earth killed my enthusiasm really.

  • Comment number 93.

    Yeah I know :-( no its not dirty lol hang on ill find it ...

  • Comment number 94.

    Its just called "Torchwood gareth david lloyd on john barrowman" have you seen the one where he talks about the texting pictures?

  • Comment number 95.

    It's on youtube right? Goes to look. What's the one about the texting pictures called?

  • Comment number 96.

    "Johns going to kill gareth for telling this one" or something similar :-)

  • Comment number 97.

    lol seen the sleep one. I love that! Also the bit a bit later on where the microphone goes off and he says "don't you cut me off" lol he's really awesome isn't he?

    Looking for the other one now.

  • Comment number 98.

    Oh and yeah youtube id post the links but because theyre not "relevant" theyd get deleted and id probably get a telling off again lol

  • Comment number 99.

    OMG that one is hilarious! Thankyou for directing me to it really. lol

  • Comment number 100.
