The legendary BBC Three gang pulled out all the stops last night in bringing us the biggest and best Being Human event to date, and we were there to capture it all on film. What many had expected to be a simple screening turned into a full-on series premiere, with highlights including...

- Appearances from Russell, Aidan, Lenora and Sinead signing autographs, chatting to fans and posing for pictures. In amongst the crowd were a few other cast members who are not yet familiar faces... but soon will be.

- CenSSA operatives scanning for Type 1s, 2s and 3s amongst the audience. They were pretty thorough in their searches for paranormal activity, including the odd torch-in-the-face moment, but I'm sure it was nothing personal...

- A confused, post-change werewolf bursting out of a van parked opposite the cinema, before being ushered away by the operatives. He later escaped and re-appeared in the cinema, causing havoc as he went.

- Vampires wandering around scaring the absolute dickens out of everyone. (We tried to take pics but nothing came out, obviously.) A vampire later collapsed in the theatre and was only brought round when a blood transfusion was administered from a waiting paramedic.

- The new episode screened on a full cinema-size screen. It's gorier, funnier and scarier than ever before so do not miss it this Sunday 9:30pm on BBC Three.

...and finally getting a chance to meet you guys, the awesome fans and bloggers whose enthusiasm, party rings and love for the show made this event the most fun we've had since watching George try to chat up Nina. Priceless.

Now we're just moments away from the first show of the new series... Roll on Sunday.

  • Comment number 23.

  • Comment number 24.

    Shame there wasn't any shots of the person who got the cast to sign her my little pony!!!

  • Comment number 25.

    What's it like being on film then SweetLyssa? You looked fab!

    Lol at someone getting their My little Pony signed!

  • Comment number 26.

    which one is sweet lyssa and genevieve :S ?? do we know who anyone else videoed was? xx

  • Comment number 27.

    Thanks Barry and Team for this...but Bbarry darling..you said you'd airbrush me to look young and beautiful..what happened?...!!!!

    Thats me by the way as well geting Aidan to sign my book with his pic in ( all 4 signed next to their pics which I used from their blog interview pics put up recently...Aidan said 'where did you get that picture?' )...that of course was after ..wait for it...AIDAN KISSED ME..and yes it was ON THE LIPS ( poor boy will probably never recover...)..reason for this?...we'd bought all 4 of the cast sweets/chocs and i had a box of Heroes for Aidan. I teased him about not wanting any presents from the bloggers ( Christmas vid)..but he denied this saying he did want presents so I gave him the box and he said..'Really ..are these for me?' and I thought he was just going for the hug but I got a smacker as well!!

    Lenora and Sinead very appreciative of their gifts and Anglo and I got hugs and kisses from them as well ( but not on the lips you'll be pleaed to know...) believe that eagle gave Russell presi as well.

    But as well as watchng the fantastic first eps and meeting the fab 4..we also got to meet mr P and the Blog team...you were great guys...what happened to rest of interviews...were they that bad..or did I really look that bad and you couldn't bar showing it..?

    Censsa stuff totaly unexpected and such great fun both outside whilst waiting to go in and inside.

    Met Toby and had word with him about eps 1..he was so lovely..everyone was so lovely. It was a truely fab night and thanks to BBC and BHproduction Team for putting it all on. Everyone in cinema seemed to enjoy themselves.

    have some pics bt very tired now ...been long day at work and i've had 4 hours sleep ..but will try later to get on Twitpics or maybe tomorrow.

  • Comment number 28.

  • Comment number 31.

  • Comment number 32.

    Yes, big thanks to everyone we interviewed... wish we had more time to include some more of the great comments but unfortunately we ran out of edit time! It was great that everyone had such a great time and there's pics and comments all over Facebook/Twitter/The Blog so there's lots more for people to discover if they go looking.

    In summary... You guys ROCK!

  • Comment number 33.

  • Comment number 39.

    Thanks to BH production for putting this on, it looked amazing and I hope everyone who went had a great time. Plus thanks to the cast/Toby for braving the bad weather.

    I can't wait for the new series to start.
    Also is it wrong of me to be incredibly excited at the trailer for Lenora's new series Material Girl?! I collect Barbies and I was squeeing like mad at all the wonderful dolls in it.

  • Comment number 40.

    Yeah maybe next time it could be in Bristol in honour of the show? Easier for lot of people to get to and cheaper to park lol but I know the cast are London based arent they so spose thats the problem :-S I just cnat wait for the next one wherever it is lol itll just be great if more bloggers could make it next time :-)

  • Comment number 41.

    jaynedoll - yeah big week for lenora isnt it!! BH on sunday then material girl on thursday! Go Lenora! Hehe so happy for them all doing so well!

    Oh and I recruited my cabbie yesterday lol! I told him where I was going etc and he had never heard of the show so gave him the hard sell and it seems Sineads the most famous now lol turns out he was a doctor who fan "oh the catus woman? yeah she was good wasnt she and pretty fit without the spikes" LOL so yeah told him she was in it and then said Russell aka the fella off the titanic was in it too and he seemed dead chuffed and is now really looking forward to it lol!

    See this word of mouth stuffs quite good :-P

  • Comment number 42.

    And don't forget Russell's new series..about twentysomethings and marriage...he said in an interview there's not much action outside of the bedroom....I have no idea when it starts, later this year I'd guess....Lenora's new series is Thursday 14th on BBC1, might be 9 or 9.30...

  • Comment number 43.

    BNTW (38) I saw your tweet and am now following you!

  • Comment number 44.

    would love to know the posters they had up will there becopies put up on the gallery or on the fb page

  • Comment number 45.

    Anglo yeah thats a pilot "unemployed and lazy" but he starts filming something else on monday apparently cant remember who told me now or what it was but hes doing something! I remember I asked whether it was that series and they didnt know...blimey who told me thats bugging me now!

  • Comment number 46.

    he'd better do Torchwood too! If they do another series Russell so has to be in!!

  • Comment number 47.

    as a regular!

  • Comment number 48.

    ok twitter........... getting into it now :) and jsut got a message back from sinead! i know everyone has on here and stuff but still i got such a rush! and feel kinda famous now lol :D ok so i'm a little weird.... :P not a stalker i promise!! well... :S :S lol :)

  • Comment number 49.

    Dorina yeah I saw you give aidan the choccies - i just bought loadsa sweets in case it was like Notts and we could just sling em on the table but it was a bit differnt...and considering the cast only grabbed a couple each and I'm allergic to em there doesnt seem to be many left guys lol glad you enjoyed em anyway and Russell seemed pleased with hi hersheys kisses...next time ill get everyone proper pressies hopefully have a bit more money then - when its not so close to christmas :-P but at least they all got something from someone lol the girl who was with Russell bless her she got lumbered with his presents including the hersheys :-P totally worth it I got my birthday kiss :-D and got kisses on cheeks from the others as well - I think I got one off Aidan lol I really cant remember now :-S but if I did I'm sure it was wonderful lol certainly didnt get one on the lips like Dorina though!

    Oh and thank you to the people who got me birthday cards :-) they got home in one peice and have taken pride of place on my mantlepiece even if it is a day late now im back lol anyway much appreciated :-) and Sinead said happy birthday hehe - the others did too when I told em lol but Sinead actually remembered (not that I havent been tweeting her a thousand times a day telling her lol oops but still it made me smile big time :-D) still cant decide whether its a good thing or not that they all remembered me from Notts :-P

    I was ever so well behaved yesterday kept quiet and was really reserved then that vampire hollyoaks fella came over and made the whole room laugh at me lol see not at all my fault - blame him!

  • Comment number 50.

  • Comment number 56.

  • Comment number 57.

    looking back to the CENSSA post on Lauren
    "You shouldn't let them do that, turn someone you care about they might become cruel"
    at the time I thought this was just self awareness now what would the friends be like. How cruel?
    Also the more I hear about the event the more gutted I am to have missed out but two days from now.

  • Comment number 58.

  • Comment number 63.

    BTW, Eagle... have to ask... did you feel everyone turning to look at you every time there was a naked George shot? lol!!

  • Comment number 64.

    61 - Me I've watched the entire previous episode now all i have is 200 suduku puzzles to get through.

    don't judge it helps to alleviate stress

  • Comment number 65.

    Lyssa - yep lol and at one point I think I just overflowed a little bit and went "eee" lol and people started laughing I wasn't sure if they were laughing at that - if they were then apologies for maybe ruining a tense moment lol or maybe people were just laughing because they were so happy seeing Russells bum again I dunno lol

  • Comment number 66.

    LOL as the person sitting behind you I noticed the odd squee of delight but my friend next to me was doing the same too as she loves Russell! It made me smile, especially as I would have been just the same if they were Aidan naked scenes..there needs to be more of those btw...just saying ;)

  • Comment number 67.

    lol at eagle :)
    and ewan i know :( i've found a website where u can watch all the episodes (with onringal music) so been watching them all repeatedly and did manage to find the pilot :D :D prefer the series but i wanted to watch everythinggggggggggggggggg lol i've workd out seen episode 6 over seven times, and thats the one i have seen the least :) lol
    whats everyone favourite episode then? i'm sure this has been asked before but in this countdown i am just too hyped up to think abotu anything else lol, mine is number 5 :) gets me EVERY time when herrick comes through the door :) :)

  • Comment number 68.

    "Let me in! Let me in"
    mine is still Annie's reply to the former canteen worker in 6

  • Comment number 69.

    Hmm favourite episode is probably 5 but the ones I watch over and over the most are the first half of 3 and first half of 4 lol so thats kinda just one :-S

    Thats what I'm a bit worried about this series :-( don't get me wrong it was great - absolutely fantastic, gripping stuff and I'm in no doubt that the rest will be just as good if not better (apparently 3 is the best!) but I hope the exciting dark stuff doesnt come at the expense of the humour. Whenever people asked me what was good about the show I always said one of the main things was that finally it was a "comedy drama" that actually was a comedy drama as apposed to a comedy with very little substance/story or a drama with the odd one liner - Toby seemed to find the perfect balance in series 1.

    Obviously I don't want to talk too much about this episode but there were some really funny lines I just think maybe because I was so desperate to find out what happened in terms of the story the comedy took a back seat in my mind if that makes sense - I stil think though - talking about favourite episodes in series 1 - it's the drama and the gritty stuff that makes you watch next weeks but its the comedy that makes you want to watch that same episode again.

    I tell you what it's driving me nuts not being able to watch it again! Last series I got into the habit of having the episode on a constant loop whenever I was at home for the week on iplayer lol. Can't wait til tomorrow night. And Lloydy's putting a new video up before it airs as well...hmm wonder what that'll be "video evidence" from last night maybe??

  • Comment number 70.

    69 - Revenge is sweet its not like you've seen it

  • Comment number 71.

  • Comment number 72.

    Marie here, changed back my nickname to MarieMJS like I told everyone, for some reason the bbc website had just "Marie" O__o ...

  • Comment number 73.

    Can't see the video here : ( Will it be available anywhere else so that non-UK fans can have a look?

  • Comment number 74.

    You can see me at the end Squeeing over Aiden! How embarrassing: me at my most geeky :S

  • Comment number 75.

    Aww I wish I was there, it sounded great
    Any chance of another meet, when the weather improves

  • Comment number 76.

    Ashleigh: Geek Pride!! And if you're really that embarressed then just compare yourself to how hyper I was! That's much more embarrassing. I have to go out the room when people are watching it because I can't stand to see myself again xD

  • Comment number 77.

    hi looked so good and then c came on i was like i no her!!!

    really wish i could of gone whens the next one?

  • Comment number 78.

    I loved the whole event although I wasn't sure what I was more excited about - watching the first episode or meeting everyone!I couldn't quite believe it when I arrived as I managed to be the first in the queue after travelling all the way from Leeds that morning. My dream came true when I managed to get a picture of the man himself - all thanks to being at the front! The whole atmosphere was electric thanks to the actors who kept us all entertained. A lovely lady brought us all cups of tea ( a link to Annie in the episode I think?)
    The whole cast were lovely and spent time with us, signing autographs and having pictures taken (bet these are well looked after)The whole episode was extremely dark and left us all wanting more! Can I please have a goldfish aswell Aidan?Thanks so much for a once in a lifetime opportunity!

  • Comment number 79.

    Ahhh I wish I was there! :(

  • Comment number 80.

    I'm late to comment, as we just got back, but my hubby and I flew up from Germany for the event (yes, we actually did, even if people taking attendance didn't believe us). We had an absolute BLAST! The new season looks great and it was great seeing all the production involved in this premiere. Meeting Russell (our favorite :-)) was fantastic!!

  • Comment number 81.

    HI, being human team.
    I have been told this is the best way to contact you.
    I have 3 public houses in bristol, all of which I would like to offer to you if you need locations for filming.
    Love this show... it's addictive.

  • Comment number 82.

    Have watched BH from begining. Just found out that tickets went on offer for series 2 live event and almost died with jelousy. Didnt sign to BH web page till recently. How did you all find out about it. Hoping series 3 has the same event. Cheers
