More intriguing work continuing on CenSSA (The Centre for the Study of Supernatural Activity) as Lloyd delves into the world of vampire friendships.

His investigations have led him back to a familiar face... Lauren Drake. Not only does he suspect she's a Type 1, he's also accusing her of killing two of her closest friends so that they could join her in her new life. Could it be true?

It seems Lloyd is crossing over more and more into the Being Human world. After recently reporting sightings of Tully and now Lauren he's beginning to close in on some familiar faces.

But the question is, if he's got this far... where is he going next?

To see more of his Lloyd's research check out https://www.censsa.co.uk/

    wow i got first comment- quite proud of myself in a geeky way haha!.. oh yer.. night! thanks blog teamm!

  • Comment number 3.

    This is all just making me more excited about the show's return :D

    Lauren looks like someone I know, which is kind of unfortunate for her because it means that every time I see her I'm like "STAY AWAY FROM ME VAMPIRE LADY."

    we know where he is going next.... but he can't outwit our 3, although they may come with their tactics and manipulations our 3 will outwit them eventually - even if they have to travel down the dark avenues of coming to terms with their own demons in order to find the strength and power to foil their cunning plans - the dastardly geeks.

    and relax!

    Ooh new CenSSA vid. Even if they do hate me now xD I'll have to watch it tomorrow as the sound on my netbook is really crap. Watch it as soon as I get home!!

  • Comment number 6.

    2 - Nuts missed the chance

  • Comment number 7.

    the question is are these two going to appear wanting payback for Laurens death or are they "never to be seen again"?

  • Comment number 8.

    3 - Note avoid being sen with you anywhere near Goths

  • Comment number 9.

    Cant see the video but I really hope Lloyd doesnt turn out to be a big time baddie because when he was in character tonight actually as Lloyd lol he was really nice to me! The actors really nice too (feel bad that I dont even know his name but I figure we were meant to call him Lloyd because the cenSSA guys were there in character)

    The cenSSA people were hilarious - one of em was a right mardy arse it was so funny I just said "wow you're a little ray of sunshine arent you?!" to which he shone a light in my eyes pointed at me and said "watch you mouth! this is deadly serious!" LOL then I said he looked stressed would he like a sweet and he shouted at me again lol

    I apologise for giving the vampire guy the giggles and making him break character lol I did it last time to Lenora lol and I was so determined to behave this time!! Oh it was so funny though this really mean looking hurgh! scary vampire fella with fangs and contacts giggling lol ahh so funny seriously. best. birthday. ever.


  • Comment number 10.

    Aww yeah Lloyd was really nice in the foyer. He didn't know whether to stay in character or not xD I think he was just desperate to know what we thought of the episode. *pets*

  • Comment number 11.

    BNTW, did you find me on Twitter btw? You'll know it's me by the photo and I have almost the same name as on here!
    I may have accidently blocked you earlier cos I didn't see your blog post thst you were looking for me. Sorry! If you find me, tweet me or DM so I know it's you!

    Ulp, looks like Lloyd's getting too close to our guys for comfort. He can't be trusted! lol

  • Comment number 12.

    Ok so now I've calmed down a bit - the blog team are going to post a video tomorrow hopefully of the night (hopefully without my ugly mug in it!) but basically - oh my god they really put on a show! the actual actors - obviously our 4 and then lloyd and donald etc didnt do much in fact our 4 got ushered off stage after about 30 seconds we were really disappointed! :-( BUT they reaaaaaaally went to town with cenSSA - we had censsa operative fellas in suits asking us questions and shining torches in our eyes lol and then tehre were a few people dressed up as vampires (including the guy who nearly gave me a heart attack! Lol but then I gave him a lollypop and he looked less manacing with a chuppa chup! Lol) and then there were "victims" people being ushered around lokoing petrified - people trying to hide them from censsa and then censsa catching em and then they had these drips on wheels that they kept wheeling round lol then we went downstairs afterwards and there was a fella laid out on a slab covered in blood lol.

    Oh and I'm glad I was wearing in black because when I made that vampire laugh he spat fake blood all over me! Lol! It's all on my bag and everything the messy so and so :-D hehe well if it wont come off at least its a nice reminder of the day lol.

    I dont want to go to bed I dont want it to be over already :-( been looking forward to it for so long it was over far too quickly!

    Right...here goes, blog post of the century..

    Walked in 20mins ago from one of the best nights ever...

    Saw episode 1 and my lips are sealed...all I have to say is

    1. Don't miss it
    2. It's brilliant
    3. Be prepared for some even more incredible writing and acting

    and that's yer lot, except to say that we did the following:

    After meeting up at the cinema, we met Mr Pilling whom we 'hearted' and his cameraman who chatted away to us..he became quite a celebrity in his own right and had his photo taken and I gather also gave an autograph, only when asked of course...it'd have been rude not to...

    Whilst we were waiting who should walk in but Aidan..so he was collared by a couple of folks at the front of the queue but I'm unsure as to whether any of us actually got to speak to him then as he had to go in, but he did spend a few mins talking to a couple of peeps which was definitely worth a few blog points and cheered us all up immensely..not that that was too necessary..

    At one point Barry P asked a couple of us to answer a few questions to camera, so at some point you poor bloggers will see one or two of us in a video looking like god knows what (unless they've been pretty enthusiastic with the airbrushing)....

    During all this we were treated to two "vampires" hanging around outside the cinema, one of whom looked quite, um, 'real'...incredible contact lenses (at least, I think they were contact lenses....) and a pair of impressive canines, dressed appropriately...he was particularly unnerving! The other one was perched on top of a van and must've been freezing, poor girl..but perhaps vamps don't feel the cold..

    After getting inside, the CenSSA people, having been fairly active outside the cinema, were pretty active inside too...a few unfortunate souls were hauled away (all actors, of course, the rest of us got back home safe and well I think) or examined as to whether they were Type 1's, 2's or 3's...it was very entertaining and some of the bloggers joined in with gusto (no names mentioned, ahem)...then we saw Ep1...blown away..

    Afterwards, it was in the foyer that we saw Aidan briefly (some more briefly than others...Dorina managed to get a big smacker of a kiss!!), a few pics were taken of him, Russell and Sinead that I know of...I'm unsure about Lenora because I didn't see her until just before I left..a few hugs and couple of more kisses were to be had and several photos were taken, but not sure by whom except by Dorina and me (took 2 with her camera) and a couple of the others..I managed to nab Sinead because I'd not had chance to speak to her at Mayhem, and gave her a tiny bag of sweets which I hoped to god weren't chocolate, and got a big hug and kiss in return...she is an absolute darling. Also got my pic taken with Russell who has a little stubble now! He's still as sexy of course, as is AT...only wished I'd seen Lenora but I didn't, unfortunately, except just as she was leaving in a car and briefly some distance away in the cinema itself but she looked as stunning as ever.

    Following yet another video when the same folks were asked what they thought of Ep1 (yet more airbrushing required of yours truly, I fear), we were off... floating somewhat after a great evening. It was well worth the trip and we have some great memories of these guys...the BH production team were there too, as was Toby whom I managed to thank and shake hands with..he looked a tad surprised!...and Donald Sumpter (Kemp), as well as Lloyd from CenSSA and other actors whom I'm sure were in it somewhere but as we've not seen the entire series yet, I don't know exactly whom they played!

    I'm sure I've missed loads out but I'll try and remember it tomorrow...in the meantime,

    BeingHumanProduction: Thanks a million for putting on a great event. The fans loved it as ever, and I'm sure are incredibly grateful to everyone for all the hard work and effort put into it..and the cast?...well, what can I add to everything we've already said? They are simply some of the most talented young actors I've seen and some of the most generous and humble... special mention of Sinead because those of us on another social networking site have had contact with her on that, and we appreciate her taking time to chat to us, even if it is about everyday things and not just about acting. What a lovely evening.

    One more thing...thanks for 'outing' me to Barry P, guys (you know who you are!)..only joking, I can handle it...

    Back late morning today...it's now 1.45am! And guess what?...I've not even investigate this new blog post...shame on me..

  • Comment number 14.

    Anglo wow what a post but yep second that - thanks guys :-)

    Oh and dont worry we were all "outed" lol and they all remembered me from Notts lol not sure whether thats a good thing or not! :-D oh well they seemed quite pleased to see me...im nothing if not enthusiastic lol

    I was one of the people who saw Aidan at the start (just a case of right place at right time!) and got some pictures which are on my twitter for your viewing pleasure lol he was absolutel lovely and very sweet and like I said remembered who I was lol which I was dead impressed by :-D

    Think my special thanks have to go to the girls! People seemed to think me and Lenora were mates lol because she spotted me accross the crowd and went "oh hi!!" and came over and hugged me lol without me even asking :-D which was great lol and Sinead of course who is always lovely and knew who I was from twitter and remembered my name and said happy birthday :-D

    Oooh ooh ooh! I do have something else to tell you guys - I couldnt video it it was all a bit mad BUT Russell DID take it back lol! I said we werent happy about what he said about comic con fans being the best lol and so got to thinking what they had that we didnt and handed him the hersheys kisses that I got a friend to send over specially from the states! He seemed really pleased that I went to the effort of getting em and said no of course not of course they're not the best and that I was definately the best fan and he wasnt just saying it lol...ok so he was just saying it but still - he took it back! Lol

    Oh and we all shouted at Toby from the queue it was a "1 2 3 Toby come talk to the bloggers we love you!!" Lol we just got a wave but then I happened to bump into him on the way to the loo lol (oh the glamour!) and had a bit of a chat to him said I hoped we hadnt scared him shouting at him lol he said no but you do realise that they reckon hed paid us to shout that lol!

  • Comment number 15.

    Ooh and must mention our free posters we got :-D sorry really going now loltoo excited!

  • Comment number 16.

    The episode was brilliant!! it was hilarious, emotional and downright "ewwwwwwww" at times!

    The CenSSA guys were brilliant but a bit dumb "have you seen any unusual activity?" and there were two Type ones sitting on top of a van behind them but apparently "pantomine time is over now" so he would fall for the "they're behind you" line, pmsl!! We had great fun with the CenSSA guys... we TRIED helping them but they took us for timewasters so we started chanting "down with CenSSA" at which point they took a discription and out row numbers!!! lol!

    Mr P was totally ace, handsome and loverly! We soooo love him! And we managed to very breifly talk to Sinead... she knew I'd been in hospital over xmas so was so sweet and took my hand and said "how are you now" before giving me a hug! she was loverly! every bit as loverly as she has been on twitter!!! And the highlight, apart from meeting all you guys, I got a kiss from Aidan!!! And I kissed him on the cheek and he was all bristly but soft bristley.. if that's the word.. loverly!!

    Oh and Cieria and Eagle were great fun and the day just TOTALLY whizzed by!!!

    I got home to find hubby had taken the beds away and was relaying the blinking bedroom floor!! so I just collapsed on the sofa until he finished and took me to bed, lol!

  • Comment number 17.

    Lol Lyssa glad you had fun "they're behind you!" was hilarious when I said that the glare..oh my god if looks could kill lol

    So Mr P whens the next one? :-D Like Lyssa said it really whizzed by :-( need something else to look forward to now lol certainly makes my **** job go quicker thinking about it dunno bout everyone elses lol

  • Comment number 18.

    Wow! Sounds like you had a fabulous time!
    This laptop has crummy sound so I'll have to watch it in the lab later if I've got nothing to do (oh gosh no the irony of the subject matter in my workplace - maybe not!)

    One thing I'm confused about - all this CenSSA stuff, was it just a bit of fun for the sake of it or was there some other reason.....sorry if I'm being blonde again....happens a lot lol!

    Aidan of course looked gorgous....as did the otbers from what I can gather but oh well next time I've been told I am going to be kidnapped from work by beingdebbiehuman lol!

  • Comment number 19.

    Lol yeah you two have to come next time!

    As far as I can tell the censsa stuff was for our benefit - to kinda make te whole thing a big "event" rather than just a preview but I'm probably wrong :-S

  • Comment number 20.

    BHF: Here I am again...couldn't get much sleep not like me so have woken up for a while before I have to nip off and do stuff..

    We had such a brilliant time last night, better than Nottingham, mainly because it was better organised and better represented, and the BeingHumanProduction team were there as well as other people we assume were actors in the series, plus a few of the 'extras' that were put on for us...including CenSSA..

    I'm not sure whether there was an underlying reason why CenSSA were represented but it could be that they are a major part of S2...it was just for fun, too, of course, and we joined in with that, but I'd keep your eyes peeled for CenSSA in S2 just to see what if anything they get up to!

    And now I'm actually going to check out Lloyd's blog post because I still haven't tut tut..

  • Comment number 21.

    Ahhhhh I see thankyou guys.
    Yes I'm desperate to come but what with work during the week & horses to do evenings and weekends I don't have much free time lol!
    Sinead hinted that there would be a few more events so fingers crossed I'll make the next one......
    Right....I'm not even supposed to be on here I have a meeting to prep lol speak later x

  • Comment number 22.

    Just seen new Lloyd vid....eventually!

    Lauren may or may not have killed her two "best friends" but Lloyd said they'd been seen with one other girl, who appeared to look like Lauren...so if it is Lauren, she didn't die then? Or it's someone who looks a lot like her..the ghost of the girl in the graveyard looks a tad like Annie though isn't I don't think..and the car may or may not be Mitchell's and the werewolf may or may not be Tully...lots to think about there and it's all to put us in the party mood for more of the BH series..

    Dorina is pretty busy today and can't visit blog until tonight or tomorrow but it was great seeing her yesterday...she and I are both glad we braved some pretty inhospitable weather to get to the event, as did a lot of us...and we weren't disappointed.

  • Comment number 23.

    Sounds like they put on one hell of a show!

    Thanks for the update Anglo (13) and Eagle (14). I'm really wishing I'd made more effort to get there now!

  • Comment number 24.

    my photos on twitpic - not as good as others - I think I got there 5 mins too late - but closer than BH's stage shot

  • Comment number 25.

    Oh I just posted in the old thread *doh!* I wish I had taken more photos last night, as the two I have are blurry and rubbish! My friend got a couple of OK ones, would love to see all of yours too though!

    How good would it be if we could do that every week for every episode ;)

    As for Lauren killing/'converting' her friends, doesn't mean she isn't dead, because the sighting of the three together would have been before she died, and that's why they haven't been seen again since. It's probably the sort of thing she would do, looking for someone to keep her company! So if she did maybe we will see those two girls at some point in the show... I was hoping that Lauren as well as Herrick would not just be forgotten, and that we'd be seeing some of the consequences of the things she did in series 2!

  • Comment number 26.

    I'm sure there'll be more... we've GOTTA have a season 3, havn't we?!! And I'm thinking we'll have to do a Bristol run... I've already been and loved it but felt a bit lonely and in need of a few more insane people... and I know Cieria said she hasn't been yet and wants to go so I'm thinking in the summer when the weather warms up we're gonna have to arrange our own event, lol... Tho I need to get a job to earn a bit of money to pay for it. lol. unless I win the lottery in which case I have the plan of buying the pink house, decorating it JUST like the BH house (complete with Chitty chitty bang bang and laurel and Hardy dvds!!!) and having a house warming! lol

  • Comment number 27.

    Don't forget the posters and wallpaper

  • Comment number 28.

    Haha yeah, where would you even get wallpaper like that? And salmon-pink paint for the exterior.... Interesting choice of colour for a house...

  • Comment number 29.

    well could be worse could be Neon

  • Comment number 30.

    yay! last night was so awesome! eagle I was on the same row as you but didnt know it was you. I was in a green top and purple and blue scarf. Agh, it was amazing! My mum was pretty much exorcised by CenSSA guy because she accidentally sat on his coat belt as he was walking past!! So funny! Spoke to Lloyd for a bit, he was super lovely and reads the blog!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the episode! Looks like this season is going to be even better than last!!! Thanks BH production!!!!!! You are the bomb!

  • Comment number 31.

    Genevieve I think you may have been just behind us, was it you who leaned forwards and asked the front row if we were on the blog?

  • Comment number 32.

    SweetLyssa: There is DEFO a Series 3...just thought I'd put your mind at rest!

    Think we'll be dining out on this event for a while to come...bet Barry Pilling copped it on the teasing front from his work buddies this morning, poor man..:D

  • Comment number 33.

    geneveive - hiya! lol sorry i didnt say hello - last time i shouted down the queue "is anyone else off the blog?!" to make sure we all got introduced lol but this time I was so excited by all the censsa stuff and that nice vampire guy who nearly gave me a heart attack coming to talk to us and having lights shined in my eyes and meeting the lovely Mr P at last! and of course sexy phil lol :-D sorry sexy jeff you've been replaced - you'll have to come see us next time! (well Mr P said he'd be getting teased today so its only fair Phil gets some too lol)

    as for series 3 - yeah there is gonna be one it got confirmed back when they were filming series 2

    Nic are you on twitter? if so ive uploaed some of my pics to mine and will do rest when i get home i got camera for my birthday and it takes really good pictures :-D has anti blur so the fact we were excited and freezing doesnt really matter lol

  • Comment number 34.

    Genevieve, didn't see you but I totally remember the belt incident!!

    I think for season 3 they'll have new people... so we should all audition and try and be on it. how cool would that be? (Eagle and other shy peeps can try and get jobs behind scenes!!) They should soooo let us on set!

  • Comment number 35.

    I kept forgetting I even had a camera, I was busy getting caught up in the moment and/or trying to remain inconspicuous from other people's photos ;)

    Eagle - yeah I am on twitter, I looked for you but I couldn't find you as I didn't know your name on there!

  • Comment number 36.

    eagle - I saw (and heard!) your reaction to the mad performance vampire from two rows back - what made me laugh was you made him drop right out of character - he couldnt stop laughing!
    I wish I had antiblur on my camera - but I still think one of my pics just catch AT in very AT mode (the more upbeat one than Monday's at BAFTA - I think if he's with the others he can relax and enjoy it more)

  • Comment number 37.

    Actually ignore that last comment eagle, I think I just found you! If I'm right I'm following you now, if not I'm following another miscellaneous fan with lots of pics from last night! I heard your reaction to that vampire too hehe... But who was he? Did you say he was in Hollyoaks? He was vaguely familiar but I couldn't work it out

  • Comment number 38.

    hey guys sounds like you had a blast last night!

    so gad that eagle had the best bday of her life. i would of loved to have gone next time i will soo be there (my sister owes me for babysitting her kids new years eve) c only just got back from London so i bet shell be on soon

    and as for the video ive never watched on of these before (censsa) but im thinking it prob was Lauren she did tell Mitchell that she kill her 1st boy friend so why not her best friends to

  • Comment number 39.

    yay! i'm on the blog!
    hello everyone!
    I've been trying to register for a BBC id for ages just so i could join in with you all but it never sent me an email to confirm it...turns out i spelt my email wrong. figures lol
    anyway. sounds like it was amazing, i wish i could have gone but there's always next time :) i really want to meet them all-especially lloyd, he's like the inner geek we all have..especially me :D
    so is there definitely gonna be a series 3?

  • Comment number 40.

    Harriet:(39) Most certainly is going to be series 3...being written as we speak and was confirmed as being commissioned some time ago so we can breathe easy now!

    we all had such a great time...sorry the wee small hours' blog posts were a bit long but when you've had such a lovely time as we had you tend to get asked questions, so it's easier to just put everything you can on there and answer any other questions later when you've remembered other stuff that happened, which I haven't yet!

  • Comment number 41.

    Nic yeah that was me! Ah cool.
    Agh now we have to wait over a week for the next one!!! Lol

  • Comment number 42.

    So, I've been "outed" by Eagle on Twitter after meeting some of the hard-core bloggers last night.
    Yes, I have been reading the blog for a while, but in a clandestine way; although, honestly, I'm not working for CenSSA. And I've been following your links on to Twitter - particularly the Nottingham pix of the cast greeting everyone. That's how I recognised you in that Mayfair street last night.
    Thanks for so kindly taking me into the fold - and to the pub - even if you did think I was a stalker, Eagle!
    My +1 couldn't make it last night and it wouldn't have been quite as much fun without other fans to share the experience with.
    Great to meet everyone. Thanks again to the Bloggers and also to BHP for a fang-tastic night out. Worth braving the snowy journey . . .

  • Comment number 43.

    I know, a week seems like such a long time doesn't it! Although I have since discovered that I'm supposed to be doing something on Sunday evening so it's a good job I've already seen it or I'd be going crazy if I had to miss it!

  • Comment number 44.

    Thanks to all of you who are posting about last night. I think it's safe to say at this point that there are as many attractive people behind the scenes on this series as on camera, if the pictures we've been seeing are any indication. All that and talent too--phew! xx

    Now we need a North American release party please!

  • Comment number 45.

    does anyone have any pics of topless guy who CenSSA kept grabbing? He was pretty cute! :D lol

  • Comment number 46.

    aww sounds sooo amazing-wish i got tickets even more now!!! sunday can;t come qucik enough! ARGHHh! :D SOO JEAlous of those who got to hug/talk to/kiss (!) aidanm lenora, russel and sinead :( but pics sound good :) vvvv new to twitter so how do i find you eagle? and whats your name on therE? xx
