    I hope this helps you! :)

    And from here in the U.S., I'd like to say MERRY CHRISTMAS back to the BH cast and crew, and to everyone here! I hope everyone had a wonderful one, filled with love, joy and laughter with their family and friends... and got alot of great presents! :P

    Plus, I have to say Aidan is So Adorable! Those faces he made gave me the giggles! I only wish he would've told us what he wanted.. lol!
    And Russell.. I'm on board with a George action figure! Rot-Rah! We have to have the whole set, though.. so that means Annie and Mitchell, too! *wink, wink*

  • Comment number 5.

  • Comment number 9.

    What a lovely video. I woke up in a weird mood this morning and it's really brightened up my day!! :)

    The hamsters really make me wish I had one at the moment now though. lol. I miss being a hamster owner.

    And I love Aidan shaking his head in the background when Russell and Lenora were talking about making presents. lol! We'll just take him chocolate and make Lenora and Russell something. lol

  • Comment number 10.

    Oh, this is what they mean by Peace on Earth, half of them are at the match....the other half are out walking the dogs...it's just me and Julie Andrews climbing every mountain....anyway....thanks for that TEAM, it was lovely..what a great bunch behing the scenes.(and the hamsters of course).

    Anyway, off now......oooh too long til 10/1/10....may have to have more wine.

    PS...I didn't get the Irishman in my stocking but I did get green knitted finglerless gloves....Yay!!!

  • Comment number 11.

    Hello all.....Merry Christmas!

    VF - No I didn't get him either, got fingerless gloves, the Des Rom book and Being Human DVD (which I have watched through twice) so I'm feeling a little faint from staring at Aidan for hours at a time.....

    Aidan, Russell, Lenora, Sinead, Hamsters, Tom, Derek, Security, Mr T, The contact lady, the drivers, that enthusiastic camera trainee (have I missed anybody?)......I love you all! Hope you had a good christmas and thankyou for all the amazing work on the show....

    Oh yeah, err Aidan, if you give me your address I'm sure I could arrange and make you a present.....and hand deliver it?? ;) Just a thought.......

    Ahhhh inlaws have gone, time to do some more BH watching.....or some reading....and yes I took the "eat lots of turkey drink lots of wine" advice.....thankyou for that :)

    And all thats left to say is roll on the 10th! Love you all x

  • Comment number 12.

  • Comment number 13.

    Merry Christmas. :D:D:D

  • Comment number 14.

    ATfan - the inlaws have gone?? Bet you're relieved lol I have the house to myself for this evening then ive got company for another few days...dont mind especially but I'll be glad of a break tonight!

    I'm sure Aidan thought of something Lenora would quite like...ahem...sorry but I've been asking people at work today what I should give them and well...none of the suggestions were...wrappable lets say lol

    On and C - I dont think you should get him a anything for being ungrateful lol we should all just turn up with armfulls of pressies for the others and then go "Oh yeah Aidan you didnt want anything right? You were shaking your head and pulling faces" Lol but I know none of us could be that mean :-D

  • Comment number 15.

    Merry (belated) crimble everyone at Being Human!

    I have two chinese dwarf hamsters remarkably similar to the ones Deric is holding - I considered briefly calling them Mitchell and George (one's more skatty and nervous, the other isn't..I think) but unofrtunately I can't tell them apart. At all. They're twins.

    Absolutely cannot wait to see the new series! In the words from the series 'Miranda' (and a phrase now adopted in our mad house) kissingtons (!) to all.

  • Comment number 16.

    Eagle - [14] Yes they went at about 1ish...but now I have the aftermath - all the clearing up etc. But yeah, at least we've got our house back.....but also had a bit of a bombshell today....
    We're moving to Sussex!
    Very long story but basically we've rented about 3 houses in 18 months and had some nasty landlords so man's bought a place in Sussex, but I can still commute for work, and will move horses closer too....bit of a shock really! ( But a good one!)

  • Comment number 17.

    Wow awesome! Always feels better to own a house than renting - the last couple of landlords I've had...eugh! Feel your pain on that front

  • Comment number 18.

    Oh I know they can be terrible can't they?
    But yeah gonna be a bit weird....at least I'll be nearer to London etc for any future BH conventions lol!!

  • Comment number 19.

    MWAH! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR to one and all on the Being Human team!

    You're all totally amazing and I can't wait for us to get to see more of you all throughout the filming of BH series 3 next year! And huge love, hugz and thanks to you our wonderful Blog team for looking after us fans all year long. :D MWAH!!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas everyone and that your New Year is safe, fun and memorable for all the right reasons.
    :D KC

  • Comment number 20.

    aww, Happy belated Christmas and forthcoming New Year to you all as well, especially Pauline who puts contact lenses in (what an amazing job!) and Helen the nurse - gotta be better than working in the NHS :)

  • Comment number 21.

    Aww that was lovely. Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was mainly Tennant orientated. And I'm about 5 stone heavier due to having 3 separate Christmas meals, thankfully not on the same day.

    Now we are all bored and trying to avoid the huge present mess in the living room.

    Great to the see that the hamsters are alive and kicking and that if all else fails there is always a possible career of contact lens applier to aspire to. With my experience I'd be head hunted for that job.

  • Comment number 22.

    hi guys that was lovely thank you so much.... merry xmas to all of you too and a have a happy new year.... Hello to everyone else not been on for a few days merry x mas hope u all got what you asked santa for.

  • Comment number 24.

  • Comment number 25.

    I should be arriving in london in the morning and having me time then meeting up about 1pm-ish or when ever others start arriving... we'll have to all exchange numbers too... but I also have mobile twitter so can update on that!

    Do we know where we're having lunch yet?

  • Comment number 26.

    I can't view video content here in Southeast USA! I just get a "Not available in your area" message. If I can see all the other page content and can also post this comment to you, why can't I get the videos?

    A Frustrated Fan

  • Comment number 27.

    For those of us in the US. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLqeYms0JMM

  • Comment number 28.

    Not Available In Your Area? Seriously? It's a Christmas Greeting, not a plot line spoiler.

  • Comment number 29.

    Use the youtube link above :-)

    These videos aren't available abroad - it's because its the bbc and we're the only ones who pay the licence fee lol but the blog team are lovely and put them on youtube a few days later usually :-)

  • Comment number 30.

    Well a post Christmas present for me this one.....thanks very much BHTeam...but...seriously Mr Pilling...you'd didn't actually upload this on Christmas Day did you?...noow that's dedication beyond the call....

    Great to see all cast and crew (including the lovely Sinead this time..) esp those we don't normally get to see. ...And a very big Hello to Jeff from the Blog Team...hope to see more of you!

    And Aidan not keen on getting pressis from us.?...that's not what he said when he popped out of my stocking on Christmas morn.....

  • Comment number 31.

    Lol yep hello Mr Jeff :-) Mr P you may have competition :-D

    Glad you had a good Christmas with Aidan Dorina lol

  • Comment number 32.

  • Comment number 34.

    Just watched this for 2nd time before going to bed and noticed more this time the looks between Aidan and Lenora on the bit ..
    L: 'I don't know what I'm getting.. but what I would like..'
    A: 'Yeh what would you like?'

    And the look he gives her?..yeh..think we know what she'd like Aidan..and I think you'd like the same.....from her....

  • Comment number 35.

    mmmmhmmmmm :-P

  • Comment number 36.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8_MjpEdx8k for anyone who hasnt seen it yet :-)

  • Comment number 37.

    Dorina - 34 - Lol yeah I noticed that too. Didn't say anything because I wasn't sure how much of it was me imagining things & over analysing Aidan's every movement....but yeah looked a bit "that way" to me too!

    I think Lenora should take note & ermm....seize the oppertunities she is/has been presented with ;)

  • Comment number 38.

    Back from Xmas away to find I hadnt been lucky with tickets from competition - v disappointing - but all this new stuff on the blog and the trailers on TV are great. And I have BAFTA to look forward to. Still jealous of those going on 7th.
    I see Lenora is the star of a new drama on BBC1 also starting next week - wonder how she managed to do that filming at same time as BH - especially as her hair is completely different - and how she managed being away from her friends on BH?

  • Comment number 39.

    Hi everyone , back from the homeland to this lovely vid....as ever, thanks The BH Blog Team ..and HELLO Jeff from the Blog team...yeh..lets see more of you!

    Great to see lots of different crew folk on this one and especially glad to see Sinead..but, once again, she's sort of 'separated out' from the other three...maybe filmed when she wasn't there but she's not really 'in' with the other three in the way that most of us think she should be.

    Dorina....you are SOOOOO right about those looks and teasing between Aidan and Lenora...they are definitely 'together'...I suspect they have been for some time.

    There's something else about Aidan on this vid....not that I think that any of them read the Blog but Russell and Sinead have always given me the impression that they appreciate the fact that it exists and that the show has fans who write about them as well as the show/characters....can't decide about Lenora..and ...it's probably just me..but I'm getting the impression from Aidan that he thinks the Blog is a joke. I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise.

    Oh and Celticgrace...I think that 'Material Girl' ( new show with Lenora in lead role) was filmed quite some time ago..you can find pics online of the filming in London and it looked warm so thinking it was filmed before BH2...lenora was missing from a lot of the early vids so maybe she didn't arrive in Bristol until she'd finished shooting..just a thought.

  • Comment number 40.

    I dont think Aidan thinks the blog is a joke - I think that - oddly for an actor - he's more shy about pushing himself forward - unlike Russell - see his comments (in SFX) about the 6 and a half thousand screaming fans in America and how he couldnt cope with it? And he's also said he never reads reviews of himself - Im not sure he should ever read the blog given some of the comments!

  • Comment number 41.

    Celtic - Yeah I agree. He seems to be like that, from what I gather. Saying that, he's normally different on blog vids - maybe because theres only a few camera people and stuff?

    Brown -I see what you mean but I don't think he doesn't appreciate it. At the end of the day its keeping the interest up in the show, even though some of our conversations are a bit dubious! Lol!

  • Comment number 42.

    Yeh celticgrace I agree that Aidan seems shy..and it's true he's not an extrovert like Russell or as confident in public as Lenora...but Comic Con was 6 months ago ( and he did look very shy there although much more confident in the small interviews) and now...to me anyways.. he comes across as much more confident in the vids and interviews over the last few months....which of course is a good thing.

    It's not that I think he...or any of them...should read the blog...it's to do with the way it's acknowledged. I guess at the end of the day I shouldn't bother about this because all of the actors involved have already moved onto their next role(s) and it's that which they have to give their attentions to....

  • Comment number 43.

    Lol......nah got to keep up the blogging brown!
    I see what you mean though, but I don't know :)

  • Comment number 44.

    do we know if Aidan has another role lined up??

  • Comment number 45.

    I do hope so. I check every now and again but I haven't seen anything. Will share if I do obviously!
    Don't understand why he hasn't been snapped up - he's clearly talented & good looking, thought after DesRom was on BBC1 he might get some more stuff....but clearly not.....

    Oh dear I'm ranting again, sorry guys :P

  • Comment number 46.

    Woah what the blog - everyones back and blogging - yay :-)

  • Comment number 47.

    Lol :P
    Everybody seems to have dissapeared again now though :(

  • Comment number 48.

    Brown - I'm in no doubt that Aidan thinks we're all a bunch of loony geeks with nothing better to do :-S thats what most people think - to be honest its probably what i did before bh came along and i actually joined one lol but it doesnt really matter we're happy and they're happy lol and they were all perfectly polite and nice to everyone at Nottingham :-)

    Russell did actually seem like he was having a ball lol to be honest if I had a couple of hundred people telling me how much they loved me and asking for photos and autographs im not sure if I'd actually care whether or not they were sane lol

  • Comment number 49.

    I agree eagle - we are nutters!
    But hey, at the end of the day who's keeping viewing figures up huh?
    Lol. Your last post summed up everything I was trying (and failing) to explain :P

  • Comment number 50.

    Hi ATfan1 ..didn't see you there earlier sorry. I didn't mean that I'd stop blogging..(well as much as i can with busy life, relationship, 2 jobs, 2 families and friends to keep happy which all take priority) just that I should stop bothering about what the actors think of the blog..or don't think of the blog !..it's a blog at the end of the day albeit the best one ever!

    I share your lack of understanding about why the divine Mr T isn't isn't booked up for years with TV and film...he may be of course and we just don't know about it. Perhaps it's because he has a very 'specific' look ie very gothic/romantic which is perfect for Shakespeare or vampires or Heathcliff type roles but not necessarily for more 'modern' stuff..having said that he looked great in The Clinic. The other thing is maybe he should have 'other' English voices different from the Rossetti voice..I'm sure he has but I haven't heard them and so much British tv wants actors with regional English voices..now I think it's me talking rubbish here.what do I know about him and his 'voices' or other acting experiences!
    Actually I'd really like him to return to the theatre... wouldn't it be grand if he joined the Royal Shakespearean Company for a season....!
    He's had a lot of different roles ( mainly in Ireland it's true) so I guess it's down to his 'face fitting', getting maybe better known on British tv networks and getting called for castings or whatever it is they have to do.

  • Comment number 51.

    I watched the comic con videos not long go and he seemed genuinely quite suprised at the interest - theres abit where someone asks a question and everyone cheers and Aidan just kinda raises his eyebrows and goes "wow...ok"

    I think Aidan's just a "normal" bloke and probably the bh online stuff seems a bit bizarre - like i said i thought it was a bit wierd to start with it just takes a bit of getting used to and maybe if he does more supernaturally kinda stuff after this, or if bh carries on for a bit longer (hopefully :-D) he'll get used to us lot lol

    but brown yeah definately get what you mean but dont think its a bad thing

  • Comment number 52.

    No problem brown :)
    Yes, I was thinking Shakespeare, or something classic-ish.
    But yeah, he can do modern too, anything really :P

    Hmmm....I don't know, he can do "Queens english" as it were, and obviously his natural lovely Irish......accent doesn't matter so much in TV work....

    I'd love for him to do some more theatre work too! London would be wonderful - at the globe, my goodness can you imagine, the whole place would just be full of drooling women! Man did promise me a holiday to Ireland a couple of years ago as I've never been and never fulfilled his promise, so maybe if AT is cast in something over there I could conveniently go on holiday? hmmmm.....

  • Comment number 53.

    ATfan - I HAD to make sense one of these days - I didnt pay attention in maths at school but its something to do with the law of averages lol normally theres just me saying things about carrots and gordon ramsay getting cross about spagetti hoops :-P

  • Comment number 54.

    Eagle - yeah think you've hit the nail on the head there!
    Cos he's not had as many roles as the other two, their very much used to being leading man/lady but he isn't so much....


    Brown - Afterthought: Would like to see him in Casualty alongside his cousin.....Turner double dose! lol

  • Comment number 55.

    Lol :)
    Bless you eagle!
    But the spagetti hoops thing just cracked me up....am composed now I promise :D

  • Comment number 56.

    Hi there eagle....didn't see you lurking there either ( must learn to refresh more often ....)..I'm going to stop bothering about whether or not the actors hold us in any regard..it's not 'real life' at the end of the day...and it wo't stop me following their careers or holding them in high regard..most of the time...

    You're right ATfan1...it is the viewing figures which matter..hence the reason The Clinic got the chop...and it's real good that the advertising/trailing for BH2 has so far been so much better than the first series..still think it should have gone out on BBC1 and a bit puzzled why it didn't but 'Material Girl' will.

  • Comment number 57.

    Can I ask - what channel have the BH2 trailers been on? I have seen quite a few BBC1 ad breaks over the last week and haven't once seen the trailer!
    Luckily it got posted on here lol!

  • Comment number 58.

    The trailers I think have been shown on BBC1,2 and 3...saw one last night just after the late news I think round about 11pm on BBC1

    The Globe in London! perfect for Mr T...We went there about 18 months ago when we were on a long wkend break in London...loved it.

    Only watched Casualty once..recently actually...and saw Ben turner...good looking guy.but the programme is not my thing at all..I'd prefer to see the beautiful one getting his kit off rather than hiding the bod under scrubs.....

  • Comment number 59.

    theyve been on bbc1, 2 and 3...dont think theyve been on bbc4 but thats a different audience for the most part (not really - i watch it but for the most part lol)

    and its true - i know sinead eats sushi on the train (one of the most bizarre conversations of my life lol) but posh food is for the most part seriously over rated - it just makes people angry - look at gordon ramsay...nobody has ever got that cross about spagetti hoops.

    sorry ATfan - had to share the joke lol

  • Comment number 60.

    I have seen the trailer on BBC1. I think it's on first on BBC3 as it's really their baby (ie BBC Wales). The BBC website seems to have an odd relationship with BBC3 stuff generally - a bit more of a side-shoot than even BBC4.

    I wish AT would get a season with the Donmar in London - having recently seen the excellent Dominic West there at a distance of 3 feet.

  • Comment number 61.

    Ahh right Ok. I've been looking on BBC1 after the watershed.....and haven't seen any yet :(

    Lol eagle....theres always one person who eats something smelly on the train :P
    Haha but yeah, the spagetti thing is actually hilarious!

    Brown - never used to watch it either, got into it in the last 6 months, and then realised the connection, and haven't looked back lol! Love it :P

    And yeah the globe is lovely isn't it! Did you sit or stand?

  • Comment number 62.

    Celtic - ooh wow lucky! Only things I've seen this year were at the globe, and of course the lovely Mr Barrowman in LCAF :D

    Well I'll keep looking on Beeb1 then....thing is I go to bed quite early - 11-11.30 normally! :P

  • Comment number 63.

    stood in The Globe of course..you have it to do don't ya!

  • Comment number 64.

    I was a chicken and sat down :P
    Wouldn't have been able to survive, and we went in the full heat of the summer so would have done something very embarrasing by collapsing! But would love to go & stand, plus its a lot cheaper...

  • Comment number 65.

    ATfan - right?! It IS weird isn't it? Thank the lord I thought it was just me lol so I'm on my way back from Bristol - tweeted about this woman sat across the way on the train eating sushi and how bizarre it was (didnt especially mind but the people im used to on trains round here are more likely to be drinking cider and eating a snickers) when i got home i had about ten replies from people, inculuding sinead, saying "erm ive eaten sushi on a train..." sinead has the excuse of being an actress - when they do wierd stuff its just "charmingly quirky" lol when everyone else does it it's just wierd :-P as it was I'm pretty sure I'd never seen this woman on the telly and she was sat next to a fella in a suit who looked like he was about to throw his breifcase at her lol that kinda stuff just cracks me up.

    Although I have added it to my bucket list - I now have to eat sushi on a train before I die lol...

  • Comment number 66.

    oh it was not too hot when were there and although a bit tiring I did enjoy feeling so close to the stage, the actors and the action in a way you don't feel sitting down. It's the same when you go to a concert...the best ones for me tend to be the ones where most peeps are on their feet dancing, joining in in some way.

    gotta go and start cooking as Man back soon ...will come back on this eve though. Been good talking to you all...and celticgrace...I have never heard of the Donmar but then never lived in london...no doubt you can fill me in and I'll catch up later.

  • Comment number 67.

    Haha....love it! Typical actress behaviour lol :P

    Errrgh can't stand Sushi myself, I don't eat fish in general but god its disgusting :S
    People on trains round here are still marvelling at the fact that trains no longer run on steam and mutter "In my day, we had PROPER trains" etc etc. I think I considerably affect the average passenger age when I use the trains :L
    Lol, bet you have a highly amusing bucket list :P

  • Comment number 68.

    Ok brown, seeya!

    Yeah when we went to R&J there was some audience participation from the standing lot....looked great but I couldn't have coped :P

  • Comment number 69.

    ATfan - I HATE fish with a passion cannot stand the stuff - can barely stomach it in finger form lol BUT apparently it has to be done :-D

    Hehe she's brilliant not at all "actressy" not in a bad way anyway - like I said "charmingly quirky" lol (that was a phrase used to describe me and it made me smile so I've had it on record and its been waiting in my brain about a month to be used lol)

    Oh and I have to agree with the oldies about the steam trains - highly inpractical but beautiful and the most fun you'll ever have going 2 miles an hour - wonderful things and so unbelievably clever...and not at all anything to do with the fact that you get off and are greeted by a few sexy young men with mucky sweaty faces lol. Nowadays you get greeted by a fat bloke in a flourescant waistcoat moaning about the replacement bus service for the 6.02 from retford. They have lost a bit of the magic :-(

    As for the bucket list - lol I'm not sure it's ammusing...theres more to it than sushi, trains and fat blokes though - I might share it one slow news day :-P

    brown - Donmar used to be the RSC "studio" home - in Covent Garden -Sam Mendes was AD some years back and really put back on the map. It's an old warehouse and only has about 300 odd seats - so all seats are really close to action. But on other hand it's harder to get tickets. Some productions then transfer to proper west end - eg Jude Law's Hamlet which I saw at the WE theatre (he was surprisingly good). Kenneth Branagh is still I think an associate Director of Donmar - (he was going to direct Law as Hamlet but got sidelined by his never-ending Thor film project) - saw his Ivanov - with NB Tom Hiddleston - has anyone else clocked him on Wallander and in recent Cranford?? He wouldnt make much of a vampire - but a ghost would be good.

    Awww bless....."charmingly quirky" is a nice compliment :)

    I do rather like your point about the sweaty men (and here we are back to attractive men again :L) and yes those fat blokes in their beautiful grubby vests do amuse me :) But steam trains are painfully slooooow....

    Haha yes, we should all post our little bucket lists and see how many things we can cross off lol :)

  • Comment number 72.

    Donmar is pretty cool, went there to see Twelfth Night with Derek Jacobi in it.......Oooh Kenneth Brannagh as a ghost? now that I'd like to see lol

  • Comment number 73.

    Haha yeah we so should help each other get em crossed off lol some are little some are big things on mine...for example I cant see myself flying a plane in this year but I may be able to go to alton towers or thorpe park :-D I cant remember the exact number but I got lots done this year :-D including meeting Russell yaaaaaaaaaaaaay :-)

  • Comment number 74.

    Haha.....well a selection of mine:

    Meet JB (done :D)
    Meet Aidan (and rest of cast)
    Go & see Top Gear be recorded
    Get our own house (almost done lol)

  • Comment number 75.

    Haha I have a whole seperate list for people I wanna meet cos there are so many people who I just think are fantastic but JB was one of them and I met him too this year :-)

    Id love to see top gear too but the list is so so long my mates been on it for 2 years lol

  • Comment number 76.

    Lol oh I know :P
    People I'd like to meet isn't too bad - because believe it or not I'm crazily shy and just go all silly,red and quiet so I keep that to a minimum lol!

    Yeah we've been on the TG list for a while now....annoying :P

  • Comment number 77.

    Oh and another one is to eat an Oyster....even though I hate fish/seafood lol!

  • Comment number 78.

    lol thats one of mine too but apparently its like doing a shot of phlegm lol which sounds like something i would avoid at all costs if it werent on the bucket list lol

  • Comment number 79.

    Haha, I've heard it just sort of slides down your throat, all slimy, and tastes of the sea :S

  • Comment number 80.

    was just booking recording of rescreen of BH tonight and tomorrow night (hopefully to get the right music?) - noticed they finish with BH Unearthed - which I missed first time! bonus! might make up for missing 7th - or not!

  • Comment number 81.

    Urghhh....I missed it 1st time and am going to miss it again - my lovely ancient TV is incapable of recording anything that isn't BB1/2 or ITV1 :S

  • Comment number 82.

    I could try and copy you a VHS? havent used it for ages. Can anyone else say if it has anything new in BH Unearthed? ie if youve seen every vid etc produced here on blog - will we have seen it all anyway?

  • Comment number 83.

    Oooh that would be wonderful Celtic! Think most of it we've seen but to be honest I have no idea as I haven't seen it myself lol! :P

  • Comment number 84.

    ATfan if i remember im gonna try and record unearthed but they wouldnt let it on youtube before but i could always make you a dvd of it?

  • Comment number 85.

    Yes would be *amazing* if soembody could upload or send me a copy :)
    I would be very grateful :D

  • Comment number 86.

    Yoohoo, back again....this is gonna be a biggie so apologies in advance..

    Firstly, hope all you lovely blogging peeps had a wonderful Christmas and are over your hangovers...unlike Russell and Aidan on this vid who they looked like they were busy building up for theirs..hehe

    ATfan! (14) Congrats on moving!! You'll love Sussex it's beautiful, used to spend a fair bit of time in Lewes and on the South Downs when I lived in London...it's only a shortish journey to there on a good day and I'm sure you'll love it.

    Dorina (30) hehe...that's exactly what I thought myself except Aidan didn't pop out of my stocking....this time..

    Eagle (59) Posh food does not make people angry lol...Gordon Ramsay was born angry, look at those wrinkles, he resembles a Sharpei dog...being angry is clearly not good for the skin!

    Celtic (60) You lucky woman...I lived in London years and never got round to going to the Globe...I may even end up going back to live there if things get bad here...at least there are jobs in London...another cosy theatre is The Pit at the Barbican in the City of London...there are literally four or five rows of seats around a rectangular stage which sits in the middle of a room...I guess maybe about 70ish audience members can sit down...bit of an eye opener if there's a nude scene...
    And I agree...theatre in London is unmissable if you can afford it...I tried to catch a lot of the stuff...saw Anthony Hopkins in King Lear at Royal Festival Hall and Richard Briers in same, but can't remember where...Peter O'Toole (one of the funniest most amazing men alive) who brought the house down in Geoffrey Barnard Is Unwell...but it was really expensive and though we tried to get cheap tickets there weren't many around then (it was a while ago).... still miss London arts above everything else, though...

    Thoughts on the vid: We've a pretty good idea what Aidan thought Lenora wanted...and we know exactly what we'd give him...and it wouldn't cost a thing...
    And weren't there a couple of looks going on there...was it me or was Lenora trying to deflect his remarks...check out the look on her face...

    Now back to normal talk..

    Anyone notice how large Aidan's pecs have become....check the bulging t-shirt...or is it because I've not seen them over Christmas and forgotten what they looked like? He also has a bit of a (smoker's?) cough...too many ciggies hun, you didn't sound very healthy.

    Colin had had a few I think...hohoho indeed...hadn't got him down as a Santa Claus impersonator but lovely man all the same! Shame Toby wasn't on it but perhaps he's busy with S3?....

    Love the crew's remarks/outfits...nice to see Marcus and Tom again...and all the other people we've not seen before..and the hamsters...

    BH PROD TEAM: Above and beyond the call of duty guys! Thanks for giving us this little Christmas gift...think some of them were a little, er, inebriated but what the heck...it's only Christmas once a year...hope you all had a very happy (merry) Christmas folks, and thanks again for supplying us with some lovely Christmassy greetings from our favourite people! xxxx

  • Comment number 87.

    Anglo -Thanks, was a shock but I've warmed to the idea now :P

    RE Aidan's muscles - yes, looking rather lovely isn't he?
    He NEEDS to ditch the fags though - it's not a good look :L

    (There is a group on facebook called "Smoking Is Not Sexy", and even I had to join it, even while thinking of AT - took a lot of strength lol :P)

  • Comment number 88.

    anglo (86) - yes I saw a nude scene (a Poliakoff I think) at the Pit some years ago - front row with my mother! it shouldnt be allowed!

  • Comment number 89.

    ATfan1: His cough didn't sound good at all unless he's had a bit of a cold or something...but it definitely sounded a bit smoker's cough-y...he's only 26 and we'd like to see him be healthy...

  • Comment number 90.

    Anglo - Although I noticed he sniffed a couple of times too - tailend of a cold prehaps? Either way, he needs to give up!

  • Comment number 91.

    Anglo I was going comment on you welcome back post because you've been away for so long but then I realised it seems to mainly about Aidans chest which if I'm honest I don't have a great deal to say about other than...yes isn't it lovely...so there you go my welcome back post to you:

    Anglo - nice to have you back, yes ins't it lovely.

    That should do it...I'm going back to listening to the BH guys advert voiceovers they've done that will, and are already, coming back to haunt them lol...funny :-D And yes Russells is sexy even the one for salad, and yes I like the way he says "muddles" what of it lol

  • Comment number 92.

    No eagle.....just no.....:P
    Anglo will agree with me about prefering the beautiful one probably :\
    And his chest? mmmmmmmm......

  • Comment number 93.

    Eagle: (91) Only mentioned Aidan's chest once (his pecs)...unsure how that constitutes almost a whole blog post! It's nice to be back but there's way too much for me to check up on Twitter...here is OK though.

    Celticgrace: (88) Who was in the Poliakoff play C? Not seen a nude scene there but did years ago...unfortunately had been on the tear beforehand and can't remember who it was or where...ooops...it was in London, that much I do know...been to a few concerts at the Royal Albert Hall but that was different altogether...used to go to the ballet every Christmas and saw Sylvie Guillem, also Darcy Bussell...amazing...would love to see AT on stage again in whatever he wants to appear in...he could do The Plough And The Stars here instead of the Abbey...

  • Comment number 94.

    Evening everyone and welcome back to anglo and brown...I don't care what you focus on you always have interesting things to say...
    such as...

    whether or not Aidan ( and Lenora?) have any interest in the blog...I think you have a point brown and I suspect they both think the bloggers are probably hopeless geeks with no lives but ..we know different....and the blog is for us not for them. Having said that they were all charming in Nottingham.

    I did notice that this was the second vid in which Aidan said that he 'maybe' would see the bloggers in the NY unlike Sinead and Russell who both said one way or other that they would...honestly Aidan..you either are or you aren't so enough of the teasing..

    I'm also puzzled by lack of info on future role of AT on the tv...maybe his accent needs some work...whilst a lot of British tv uses celtic accents most tv seems to want English accents...his Rossetti accent was great for Rossetti but wouldn't be great for much else...

    Oh and his pecs?...I'm thinking tight tee shirt anglo...although if he doesn't have much work on now I guess he'll be working out even more..!

  • Comment number 95.

    Sorry anglo was one of those "joke" things...

    ATfan - yes! just yes! Lol you wait Sinead'll be back soon she'll stick up for me lol...I hope... :-P

  • Comment number 96.

    Haha....she probably will.....but I won't back down :P
    What am I missing here? Thought his English accent was pretty damn good myself! Lol maybe I'm just biased?

  • Comment number 97.

    Mr P I have to ask erm the security fella? Was he having a pee while you were talking to him lol or had someone left a tap on behind you lol

  • Comment number 98.

    ATfan - Aidans accent? Hmm its not erm well no no it was ok...I couldnt do better so its hardly fair for me to comment lol I cant even do a "proper" english accent and i live here lol

  • Comment number 99.

    Really? Oh ok, I thought it was pretty good for basic "Queens english"! lol

  • Comment number 100.

    Dorina (94) Hello...did you have a good one D? Not thinking straight at moment...was expecting nice weather in Bristol and it's actually colder than at home in the Eastern bit of the country which is something...I've lost the feeling in the fingers of the right hand so excuse the typing...and my brain has turned into something that isn't grey matter..

    We've not heard much of AT at all...not even if he's going to be doing much else inbetween S2 and S3....would be amazed if he wasn't doing something fairly major like a TV play (one-off) or stage stuff (but that might not be advertised, except in the London papers or stage correspondence or for a particular theatre)...however, he may be doing voice-overs...they can be extremely lucrative...one very well-known Brit actor said that he paid for his first house by doing one advert for one particular product...fair play to AT if he decides to go down that route..hope he turns up for 7th but if he isn't could be that he's busy doing other things like voice training or adverts or rehearsing? I'd love to see him on stage, I really would, as I would the others too..
