They're dark, they're dirty and they're damn hard work to shoot in. Add to that a dangerous stunt involving a brick, a face and some fangs and it becomes apparent that shooting in the labyrinthian Redcliffe Caves caves was never going to be easy.

So this week the BH Blog team went underground to take you inside one of the most bizarre locations of the series...

    We all knew- but what a shocker!! Brilliant!!

  • Comment number 10.



    Not Nina :-( I won't have Nina dying no way. Nina dies I stop watching...OK theres a threat I'll never be able to carry through but she CAN'T die she can't :-(

  • Comment number 11.

    this looks to b one hell of an ep 4 if they harm Nina you know there will be one hell of a lot of blood

  • Comment number 12.

    Wow, that was great. So funny, and heartbreaking, and awkward to watch in places, and gory, and there was actually an "Oh my God" moment when Mitchell knocked Cara's teeth out.......wow.

    The music this episode was amazing as well.

    Is anyone else a bit disappointed that Lucy is the Professor though? I just sort of wanted it to be a bit less obvious than that.....

    But we still love you BH - can't wait to see what happens next week.

  • Comment number 13.

    There's just too many things to think about... My brain feels like it's gonna explode.
    I knew she was too! (3)
    Now Mitchell is gonna fall into a trap, Nina is gonna get compressed :'( and George seems... happier? (Until the cage that is)
    Brilliant episode(:

  • Comment number 14.

    “The king is dead! Long live the king!”


    Fab episode. Ok I now feel stupid for not believing Jagget was her.


  • Comment number 15.

    I believed she to be a he too lol

  • Comment number 16.

    wooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh! just so happy right now! so excited. best episode of the series, maybe even ever! and i got it right- so did lots of others too- we KNEW she was jaggat! ahhhhhhhhh, i'm actually proud of myself for guessing right. Is that sad? don't get my mitchell!!!

  • Comment number 17.

    I said right from the start that Lucy was evil!!! I'm so glad I was right. Now I can stop trying to assure myself that my crush on Mitchell wasn't making me read too much into things. xD

  • Comment number 18.

    wat no weird eagle noise haha lol i love it wen JOHN mitchell is bossy he can boss me around anyday :P

  • Comment number 19.

    Poor Nina :'(

  • Comment number 20.

    So much to say so many funny bits so many epic bits such an AMAZING episode but all I can think is I knew it was Lucy!! Lol and that Nina best not die or there are gonna be some VERY peed off Being Human fans!! Arrrrgh watching again now I literally cannot get enough of this episode it was amazing. If anyone doubted that this series wasn't up to series 1 standard then this has to prove them wrong it has to be the funniest AND the most dramatic ever - it was just - wow!

  • Comment number 21.

    Is Mitchell going to leave her down there or rescue her when the others aren’t looking?

  • Comment number 22.

    Beautiful, sad, scary, funny, meaningful. Absolute brilliance! Loved every single second. :D This is so clever, just genius. Makes me proud to be an uber geeky BH fan.

  • Comment number 23.

    I didn't like her anyway.

  • Comment number 24.

    i player time

  • Comment number 25.

    Fantastic episode...hoping that Mitchell will get back into the cave and rescue Cara on the quiet...making pact with her that if she 'disappears' she can live.

  • Comment number 26.

    Oh my god! That really was the best episode ever! I really lurve the big bad Mitchell!


  • Comment number 27.

    I loved George and Mitchell’s talk about The Real Hustle.

  • Comment number 28.

    if you go down to the caves today, ur in for a big suprise...

  • Comment number 29.

    Great backstage vid by the way...it was really uncomfortable to watch Mitchell 'the killer' actually - it looked difficult for him to impose his authority.

  • Comment number 30.

    Rebecca, I was wondering that. I think he's decided to leave her for now. But the fact that he left her "alive" leads me to suspect that he might go back on that decision later.

  • Comment number 31.

    real Hustle again always good

  • Comment number 32.

    Well, well well, Lucy Jaggart, can we assume that everything she has said has been a lie? It has, she's only there because of the "Professor Jaggart, we've found them" phonecall at the endo of series 1.

    God, she's evil. And didn't we know it, just from that look in ep1, like she was acting but when she shut the door it stopped. And now she's gonna kill Nina :'(

    Grrr, I wonder when Mitchell will find out, next episode?

  • Comment number 33.

    I agree Rebecca. (27)

    To hell with all the professor Jagget stuff, that was always obvious from the start and doesn't interest me much to be honest. It's little moments like this which made the show so successful and keep me tuning in. Comedy gold!

  • Comment number 34.

    Will George find out is that a question will he smell Nina on her then what will happen will there be a Herrik in store for Lucy

  • Comment number 35.

    re 27 and 30....yes I'm worried about that. Mitchell said she had been executed, when clearly he's left her alive. It was obvioulsy really hard for him, but I don't want him to go back and rescue her, because something will go wrong, the other vamps will find out, and it'll all come crashing down round Mitchell's ears...aaaahhh!

  • Comment number 36.

    Sorry, meant 21 and 30

  • Comment number 37.

    Cieria I hope he saves her. I really don’t like the idea of him leaving her to die.

  • Comment number 38.

    Shell (35) I don't want him to rescue her either....it's just gonna cause more trouble.

  • Comment number 39.

    On the one hand that was the darkest episode we had but it was also one of the funniest.

    Funniest scene in the history of Being Human ever has to be the 'the Real Hustle' bit. Good old BBC 3 promoting their own shows :D

    "They were going to do a con involving a cash machine!" :'(


  • Comment number 40.

    There are so many good points it's hard to know where to start. Highlights: I actually laughed out loud at the marigolds/real hustle scene for a few solid minutes.
    Strange and your beautiful- one of my favourite tracks. Wasn't it one that we recc'd last year?
    Ugh I can't remember stuff. I'll have to come back when I've rewatched and calmed down.

  • Comment number 41.

    Shell, though which is a bigger punishment. Killing someone and then it's over. Or leaving someone in a cave in agony, in the dark, all alone for a very long time. There is the possibility that he's drawing it out to make it worse for her. We'll see in later episodes but we should really consider both sides.

  • Comment number 42.

    Loved George's first date outfit.

  • Comment number 43.

    This is driving me insane 6 days and less that 23 hours to go

  • Comment number 44.

    On the topic of the caves COOL! I love stuff like that, and thanks to Google I see that the Axbridge Caving Group do guided historical tours. https://www.bristol-link.co.uk/entertainment/redcliffe-caves.htm

  • Comment number 45.

    41 - Cieria, I agree leaving her to die is a worse punishment, but I have a horrible feeling she's going to get out - either Mitchell's going to cave (no pun intended), or one of the other vampires is going to check. Yeh, we'll see what happens I guess.

  • Comment number 46.

    I’m glad Hugh is not involved in CenSSA.

  • Comment number 47.

    Thanks for this vid guys...great to see behind the scenes stuff and hear about why the caves were 'bookended' in the episode in that way. also fantastic to see Aidan discussing how Mitchell had to change to take on new role as leader of the vampires

  • Comment number 48.

    Loved the episode, love the bookend effect with the caves but... am I wrong to think that Mitchell was a bit cruel... I understand he HAD to follow through on his threat (hey I am a teacher I KNOW you have to follow through if you threaten a group of unruly people with something) but in fact he did NOT kill her, he took her teeth her and left her to rot down there... I think he should have killed her properly:
    1. to actually follow through with his threat
    2. it would have been more "human" than what he did
    3. I think this could come back to bite him...

    and oh... I was so right from ep 1 to think that Lucy was Jaggart!! :-)

  • Comment number 49.

    WOnder if Mitchell does set Cara free but the other vampires see Cara hanging around, turn on Mitchell...

    And how does Mitchell or George or Annie find out about Nine's whereabouts? Does Mitchell decide to get close to Lucy after figuring out she is hiding something herself? She gave the suicide guy the cross to hold, like she was testing him....Mitchell saw that and may remember that in future...then the doubts about her might start and he may decide to get closer to her (hence the snogging scene I think will bbe happening at some point) to find out her motives.

    Its a sure-fire bet that Crazy Daisy has her sights set on Mitchell now by the fact that she was positively eyeing him up now that he's King and she loves that power...think she'll go for him, Ivan is going to get mightily hacked off...

  • Comment number 50.

    43 ewan - lol

    Daisy was good this episode, but no Ivan. Do you think BH is doing this on purpose because one of them is very bad, and one of them is going to turn out good? I see Mitchell's trying to convince Ivan to go clean in the next Ep....?

  • Comment number 51.

    Excellent episode. Thank you, BH!

  • Comment number 52.

    still my favorite moment is when Annie realizes that Hugh is George

  • Comment number 53.

    I was shouting at the TV this Ep as well, to George, saying "LOOK, THERE'S A MICROPHONE!!!" lol

  • Comment number 54.

    Again. Amazing. Lol watching it again but my recorder cut out in middle so gonna have another go recording on the repeat - bloody thing! Does it not realise I'm gonna need to watch this episode a few hundred times this week lol

    It was just. wow. and I've got messages from people saying oh my god they cant believe its Lucy - so yeah it was a big suprise and no one saw it coming its only because the bloggers exhausted every possible theory lol someone had to get it right lol.

    Only thing I dont like - that police fella - hes very irritating lol.

    And I hope Cara goes...I'm not liking her :-S good little actress but the character is possibly the most annoying person ever lol

    Argh what an episode - amazing.

  • Comment number 55.

    Maybe Mitchell will leave her down there til she's stopped craving the blood. Like all the ladies' favourite scene from last week, with Mitchell and the chair. Ah yes, vague recollections of it. :D

    Anyway Carl recommended 6 months to do it properly. Not sure what the situation is as to whether vampire fangs grow back when they are knocked out, if not she'll be a pretty rubbish vampire if and when she gets out.

    Poor cantine lady, she used to be so nice.

  • Comment number 56.

    55 ooh good theory Deadly - hadn't considered that, he does after all want them all to go clean.....

  • Comment number 57.

    DeadlyFurniture (55) she still needs normal food or she will starve to death.

  • Comment number 58.

    57 - does she need normal food? I thought all the cereal/biscuits Mitchell eats were just carb/sugar thing to counteract the blood cravings. I can't remember Toby's vampire rules - do they need to eat, or can they survive without?

  • Comment number 59.

    is it me or where was Lloyd?

  • Comment number 60.

    Hmm I've had a thought (Yeah I know it's dangerous lol) apologies in advance if this turns into an epic...

    In episode 2 Carl says something like "maybe it's time I stopped" and Mitchell said "No you're not ready" I meant to comment on that all week but there were so many distractions lol.

    Now Mitchell chucks Cara (Am I spelling that right by the way? Never known anyone by that name?) down there and knocks her fangs out. He know's she's not dead and he leaves her.

    Also in episode 2 Mitchell was tied to that chair for (possibly) up to 6 months or whatever :-S

    Now when Carl says "time to stop" he obviously doesn't just mean stopping drinking because Mitchell says he's not ready and well, he wouldn't say that about stopping would he? Carl had been stopped apart from that mistake and so had Mitchell apart from his few mistakes...

    So is any of it linked? Is it maybe something they do...but knocking their fangs out doesn't have to stop them killing/feeding - all they need is a knife or something sharp and they're sorted so...any thoughts lol?

    I now have tea - It's meant to be calming me down but I don't think it's working lol.

    Oh and my new favourite scene EVER the real hustle scene lol especially since I have done the exact same thing - when you're that upset about something and all you want is the little stability of an episode of friends - you KNOW it's on that same time every single day and has been since the dawn of time and now what "big brother live" NO! Damn you e4!! Lol

    Oh I LOVE IT!

    Sorry yes - thoughts on the Carl thing? And if it's anything to do with the canteen lady thing??

  • Comment number 61.

    59 - Lloyd was listening in to the microphone when George washed it down the sink

  • Comment number 62.

    I think they eat normal food and that’s what keeps them alive. Blood is just a craving, like drugs, they don’t need it.

  • Comment number 63.

    Police Commander a nasty piece of work...hoping he gets what's coming to him by end of the series....
    So many humans in the pay of the vampires!

    I'm sure that Nina will not die in next week's episode...maybe the machine breaks...maybe she escapes somehow. Maybe Lloyd comes good and rescues Nina?

    what is it that Lucy ( the rat!) wants to do with vampires and ghosts?...the machine so far sems to only be for werewolves. I think that she's going to try and snare Mitchell in some way...maybe next week.

    Hoping that Mitchell rescues Cara..but he'd have to get her to leave Bristol and not return or his authority as the new King would be lost.

  • Comment number 64.

    Well they're already dead so they can't starve to death but I'm guessing it would still hurt

  • Comment number 65.

    Maybe if Cara escapes or he lets her go, his credibility as King is lost, Ivan takes over and Mitchell is forced to flee - to Wales...

  • Comment number 66.

    60 - I wondered about that comment by Carl last week, and thought he meant he'd had enough and wanted to stop being a vampire - ie, disappear into dust like Lauren - but I'm not sure because Mitchell's comment about I'm not being ready didn't make a whole lot of sense in that context.

  • Comment number 67.

    Ah the strange and beautiful track goes so well in this scene...

    So many funny bits in this episode - that makes me extremely happy lol I was giggling all the way through :-P

  • Comment number 68.

    Dorina (63) they think Vamps are demons that must be destroyed, werewolves can only be cured thought dangers experiments and ghosts should be forced to ‘move on’ weather they want to or not.

  • Comment number 69.

    good ideas eagle I think you might be right.
    He HAD to show an example with the fangs and he also wanted to detox her. So that was his solution.

    Btw we are huge fans of the Real Hustle in the superochre household. To the point where I'm worried that I'm raising my boys to be super criminals. So that made me LOL.

  • Comment number 70.

    61) the shame of missing that he got lines as well

  • Comment number 71.

    Go to go. I’ll catch up tomorrow.

  • Comment number 72.

    @49 - I don't think George and the others will find out. I think Nina's only hope is Lloyd having a change of heart and growing a backbone.

    @55 Cara was never nice

  • Comment number 73.

    As for Mitchell as the king...I thought they were chanting for Herrick :-S

  • Comment number 74.

    73 - Eagle I got really excited when I saw the Chief Inspector, and though "ooooh a new Herrick" but he's not even a vampire!!

  • Comment number 75.

    The King is dead. Long live the King... I got confused with that.

    Eagle- do you remember the Strange and Your Beautiful recc? Fits perfectly doesn't it. :)

  • Comment number 76.

    Thanks for the video BHP! Loved the episode! :)

  • Comment number 77.

    Super (75)...Herrick (the first King) is dead....long live (Mitchell his successor) the King...

    BeingHumanProduction: Absolutely amazing...edge of seat stuff...more next week...this is making us addicts, you do realise?...

  • Comment number 78.

    The King is dead. Long live the King. is pretty standard stuff. v traditional. Le Roi est mort. Vive le Roi!

  • Comment number 79.

    Thank you for your explanation. :)

  • Comment number 80.

    72) re 55 she was nice when human how she talked about the parents series 1 ep 1

  • Comment number 81.

    Super - yeah I thought that was brilliant - fitted perfectly.

    Well "The king is dead long live the king" can mean many things what with vampires being dead lol I still thought they were chanting for Herrick though :-S I dunno - maybe Toby or BHP will shed some light.

    Daisy didn't look too impressed though :-P can't wait for their sex scene lol is that really bad of me? Just at the minute they seem pretty...well not in each others good books :-S wanna see how that happens...yeah ok ok and Mitchell naked lol

  • Comment number 82.

    Eagle: Fitted who, exactly?

  • Comment number 83.

    @82 think they're tlaking about the music

  • Comment number 84.

    Hi all

    I'm new to posting on the blog - have been reading it for a while though. After tonight's episode I felt I finally had to join in. I have also been following BH on FB but you seem to have more fun over here.

    Have to admit I only started watching the show after it was on BBC1 but was totally hooked - can't get enough of it now.

    Won't comment on tonight's ep yet cause I need to catch up with where you're all at - just thought I'd introduce myself.

  • Comment number 85.

    anglo - the aqualung track - just fitted the show really well I thought :-) and its a brilliant song

  • Comment number 86.

  • Comment number 87.

    Sorry, can't keep up with posts...and subject matter lol...the music is excellent as BH always seems to be...got confused with discussing Cara and music..it doesn't take much these days...strangely, although Aidan and George and acting fab, this week I got totally carried away with the storyline, almost forgot about how great the actors were :P

  • Comment number 88.

    Haha yeah - I couldn't actually pinpoint a favourite this year. Sinead although only in it just a little bit was amazing but made me want to cry! Russell was hilarious and heartbreaking :-( Lenora was hilarious lol I'm loving Annie this series and Aidan - wow - all very dramatic and he does it brilliantly.

    I need it to be next Sunday now! Lol!

  • Comment number 89.

    Yeah, agree with you about Cara. I think he's keeping her in the cave to force her off the blood and then prove to the others it can be done.

    Looking forward to see what is going to happen with Annie and the whole ghost situation. Bad Lucy! Has she been playing Mithcell along all this time? Surely she knows he is a vampire. Did you see the evil grin she gave him after their date?

  • Comment number 90.

    might be in the live blog but Lucy and Mitchell date look under the table for the subtitles

  • Comment number 91.

    Im finding it hard to get the Lucy as the Prof thing. Partly I was really liking their jokey relationship - and rather hoping M would find some love. But also if she's such a religious fundamentalist - even if she's acting a part - she says some pretty odd and even sexy things? - plus wouldnt she be disgusted by Mitchell (as if! - I know - but ..) and there's a small trailer with Mitchell and Lucy getting it on - but she just wouldnt would she? not even to catch him? CENSSA knows about him so she doesnt even need to catch him?

    Lots to love - especially the humour - but lots of very very short scenes? and lots of scenes of Mitchell walking across bridges and spaces to different meetings (not that that isnt great to watch - given how well he moves) - felt a bit repetitive - though I know it needed to build up Mitchell as bad king. And he does angry so so well!!

    Sorry - going on a bit - not sure about a lot of it - tho everyone else seems to think it was the best - need to watch again maybe it'll come together?

  • Comment number 92.

    Can't wait for next weeks episode:
    George as a teacher - brilliant!
    But not so happy about him dating this new Sam girl :-(
    As for Nina - she CAN'T die! I think the fact that George wasn't fully transformed will matter - or maybe it's actually George who is different somehow? He always seemed stronger in some way - Tully said that he kept throwing up dead animals but don't think George has - and then in first episode of this series he's about to eat a bit more of that deer after he'd transformed back...anyway Nina starts with a nose bleed by the looks of it - whereas Galvin started bleeding from his main arteries straight away...? So there's surely some hope!
    I'm wondering if she might actually manage to transform in there somehow and either breaks out or survives it...
    Or maybe Lloyd? Maybe he comes through for us at last lol he said they seemed nice and he's certainly keeping up a "nice guy" persona on youtube and when we met him lol
    As for Annie - finally we get to see "you can't haunt another ghost!" guy :-D

  • Comment number 93.

    celticgrace - yeah the bit with her and mitchell getting it on - i think maybe to re-bug the house??

  • Comment number 94.

    good thinking eagle - but one of the ep summaries (4 or 5?) talks about Mitchell really falling for her? he was well distracted tonight (again not sure that rang true - he'd take his chance wouldnt he? even if he is thinking about vampire revolt?) - but if he's going to fall for her - she needs to go along with that some way?

  • Comment number 95.

    Im still wondering why she's bothering to get close to Mitchell - given she must think he's like a devil - but maybe - Kemp seemed really keen to get info about the funeral parlour - so she's trying to get to all his connections - how big is the vampire community and how can they get into it?
    Tricky as their main concern otherwise seems to be curing werewolves?

  • Comment number 96.

    yeah well think the idea was always to get close to him the grand plan...god knows - kill him, experiment on him, help him - only time will tell...

  • Comment number 97.

    "experiment on him, help him" .. ? I need to go get some sleep and youre not helping lol

  • Comment number 98.

    92) ah a convert to the raw meat theory at last

  • Comment number 99.

    Lol sorry :-P

    Ah I love this scene - I want to live with these 3!

  • Comment number 100.

    ewan - a what now?
