The countdown has begun.

With every moment that passes we are one step closer to witnessing the final chapter of this incredible story. With every tick, every tock, the tension is building, the anticipation growing. So to calm your nerves we thought we'd release this sneak peek from episode eight.

Yes, it's Annie and George. Yes, they're discussing his reasons for being in the facility. Yes, this is confirmation that they are both alive. For now.

What happens next is anybody's guess...

Don't miss the series finale of Being Human this Sunday 28th at 9pm on BBC Three.

    Awww! George and Nina are so meant to be!
    As much as I'm looking forward to Sunday's episode, I don't want the series to end! :(

  • Comment number 8.

    (6) ewan - you're first on most of the blogs lol! ;)

  • Comment number 9.

    383. (previous blog) Dorina, yes they were a bit. But then I don't know why you "oldies" can't just say. Us newbies don't bite...

  • Comment number 10.

    i know its guna b so sad. :( (7)

    (6) :P

  • Comment number 11.

    Ok, so we're carrying on, on this blog right? :P
    Think the clip is a tad lack lustre but hey any BH is good BH :)

  • Comment number 12.

    For those of us not in the least bit interested in what 'number' we post at...

    Don't know whether or not you caught my comment on the last blog BHProductions but this is a bit of a tame preview is it not? ok...I know...you don't want to put up any spoilers!

    Annie eems bored and acts as if she might be on holiday here..contrast that with the trailer bit of her at the end of eps 7 when she's in that facility looking terrified about something.

  • Comment number 13.

    (7) Me either. It went too quickly! I really want to see Nina make it to the next series too...it's even scarier the prospect of losing her than Annie, who's been half-in and half-out for the whole series.

  • Comment number 14.

    not_wierd_but_gifted and ewan will you PLEASE stop that before I go all Mitchell and Daisy on your asses!! I couldn't give a flying monkeys what number your post are if you wanna talk about the clip fair enough if you wanna talk about unrelated stuff we dont care but that is REALLY annoying and I have held my tongue...well my typing finers for weeks if not months now it is REALLY IRRITATING!!!!

    Apologies for that little outburst but if I didnt say somehting my head would explode and frankly I havent got time to clear up that mess!

    Not sure what to make of the new clip to be honest I like it but...I dunno I guess I'm used to getting a nice funny clip...I wanted a nice funny clip lol

  • Comment number 15.

    Evening! How are we all....

    Another good little offering from BH prod...they must've heard me...it was rather a sad video...George getting all misty about Nina...there's feeling there for her still...go for it Georgie boy!
    Can't see George and Nina ever not being an item...fingers crossed...

    Wonder why those lights kept flickerng....like they did on the train....just before....

  • Comment number 16.

    Daisy is the only female character I really liked this time. The male cast were amazing as always, and the addition of Ivan was genius. Even the constable had a lesser than Herrick but interesting evil to him. But the gals just didn't get the plum lines this series...except Daisy, who's feral and sexy!

  • Comment number 17.

    14 - so tempted to find the number of this post and fake brag about it

  • Comment number 18.

    Dorina: Were you thinking about pics of Mitchell from the 60s when you or someone else mentioned blood covered toes?....I'm up for that...those tighty-whities have really grown on me...but only he could look good in those!

  • Comment number 19.

    i agree shohga - i of course love nina and annie but daisy is just so much FUN! and i swear to god amy manson is living proof of reincarnation lol she must've been a saint in a previous life - shes had erm turkey scenes with russell with aidan twice and she got to sit on and chuck a bucket of water over john barrowman lol and i think something to do with electrodes to his nipples too but i can hear the mods breathing into paper bags so ill stop there :-P

  • Comment number 20.

    I have always loved Annie, and Nina towards the end of series 1. Daisy is an awesome character and very well acted but personally i'm not /that/ keen! (Nothing to do with my jealousy of Amy Manson, I swear!!)

  • Comment number 21.

    Sorry, meant above to reference Dorina at (12) about Annie's bored look! And not to say the actresses weren't excellent, just that their story lines were less developed this time around.

  • Comment number 22.

    Ginger-Red...good to see you back ..and..I think you'll find that we have, we do and will continue, to say.

  • Comment number 23.

    14, ok, jus dont kill me rite, make me a vamp instead, yeah? ;)

  • Comment number 24.

    23 whats wrong with going furry?

  • Comment number 25.

    And I still loved that Velvet Underground stuff....and yep, I'm still singing it (and Herman's Hermits) at work and everything thinks I'm having a breakdown when I talk about TWs, excessive blood and rainway carriages...

  • Comment number 26.

    Eagle......water? Electrodes? JB? What have I missed? :O
    If you'd care to elaborate....

  • Comment number 27.

    Anglo - Oh they already thought I was mental but now I have "sat on wine bottle man"-esque names and sing funny songs and stuff, they think I've totally lost it!
    But I'm not going on a train for a while :P

  • Comment number 28.

    24, absolutely nothin, but immortality is slightly cooler than changing into a furry animal and she said she'd go all mitchell and daisy, and they're vampires so it'd b hard to go furry.

  • Comment number 29.

    NWBG: (23) Hey, being a vamp is good...it's never bothered me in the slightest...so we lead sad and appalling lives but hey, it has its advantages (meeting big bad John for one)...xx

  • Comment number 30.

    Lol in series 2 of torchwood she played one of the origanl torchwood lassies - caught captain jack shot him a couple of times and wired him up and her friend sat on his face lol you know the usual torchwood stuff

  • Comment number 31.

    (19) you said turkey!!! Whatever Amy M did in her past life, I really am going to try for that this time around!

    I loved Annie last series and this time I felt like she was just hanging around, as if she should have gone on once Mitchell was out of danger. But then there are limits to what she can do, I guess...the scene with her mother was good, but the best bit of acting from her all season was that short scene after the baby left and she sat in the dark. Beautiful.

  • Comment number 32.

    Hey hey! Not long now...

    I'm looking forward to the awkward 'I think about you naked' apology from Mitchell. Surely, you wouldn't let that slide. You couldn't look him in the eye without thinking 'I know what your doing late at night' hehe.

    Right so I'm convinced Annie is going to possessed or something at the end and know one will know that's not Annie.

    "She kicked me in the shin George, the shin".

  • Comment number 33.

    thank u anglo. (29)

  • Comment number 34.

    Anglo....ssssh stop leading the humans astray :P
    Lol, they're missing out aren't they? Talking to characters/Sinead etc. I think we sound a bit mental :)

  • Comment number 35.

    ah passionless immortality so tempting pure passion and the two cities once a month much better

  • Comment number 36.

    Shohga, Eagle: Daisy is still crazy but she's brilliantly so...

    One of Annie's funniest lines this series was "I might be dead but I'm still on the database"...

  • Comment number 37.

    shohga i did say turkey lol gotta love the turkey talk :-P im disappearing for 5 minutes anglo keep your teeth to yourself hey...

  • Comment number 38.

    Yes...@bbcbeinghuman put up pics of empty train with blood/gore ..and Marcus...so was requesting more blood scenes ...but with mitchell covered in blood and preferably naked..or as naked as BH is ever going to allow him to be....how come it's only George's bum we get to see?..we women have needs!!!



  • Comment number 39.

    Oh god, not turkey talk again! Thought we had enough of that last night on tweets! hehe :)

    The Real Hustle bit, the database bit and "Hello Mr Potato face" were all hilarious :)

    And all of Ivan's funny stuff, of course :D

  • Comment number 40.

    25- im so with you on that- think the music for ep 5 was great loved Velvet underground and Jefferson Airplane =]]

  • Comment number 41.

    At least George and Annie are talking about the Lucy/Michell situation and thinking that maybe it doesn't bode well. It ought to put them a little bit on their guard.

  • Comment number 42.

    BHF: Yes, but it feels so nice!! hehe...couldn't resist that...I hope Lauren_Drake and GhostofAnnie pop back later...and I haven't seen that JohnMitchell_ around until last night and then I missed him!! What's that all about then...have an early night and he appears...must catch up with him sooner rather than later and find out why I've scared him!

    DontGoThroughTheDoor (32) That Mitchell comment to Annie was one of the best, sexiest lines ever...only he could deliver that to make it sound threatening and grim and yet you really wouldn't mind...well, I wouldn't...in faact I'd have probably make use of that empty sofa right there and then...he'd have wanted an apology from me afterwards!

  • Comment number 43.

    (38) If only George could scratch Mitchell and then he could change every month too...I do realize the fact that he's already dead would get in the way of that, but still. It's a nice way to solve your dilemma.

  • Comment number 44.

    Dorina - I'm soooo with you on that one! (Suprise suprise!)
    Full frontal nudity anyone? Blood and fingerless gloves?

  • Comment number 45.

    I see what you mean.... yeah anyway..

    The subject that interests me the most this series is the power vacuum left by Herrick. I'm fascinated watching Mitch take over & Ivan losing control of Daisy. When you take away a power... however dangerous, who/what is left?

  • Comment number 46.

    lol beinghumanfan can you blame me i might as well become a vegetarian the way im going :-P

  • Comment number 47.

    Anglo - I think we're quite scary ladies to be honest. Very, erm, admiring :P

    Hehe. But he likes it, and its not doing his ego any harm! Hehe, what fun :D

  • Comment number 48.

    Sounds good 44 lol

  • Comment number 49.

    Don'tGoThroughtTheDoor...How could Annie be possessed?..she's already a spirit...I'm liking the idea that she somehow manifests those superhero kick ass skills she was developing at the end of series 1 ..Annie to the rescue this time!

  • Comment number 50.

    Might as well eagle, might as well :)


    I'm sorry my posts are so short guys, but I can't concentrate for more than about 3 lines, so please excuse the short-ness!

  • Comment number 51.

    (45) Mitchell's been ridiculed for not being in control several times already. You're right that all the vampires won't have been killed in the fire, so what's coming next? I thought Daisy might go hard and cold now that Ivan's gone and Mitchell will certainly turn himself back around for his friends.

  • Comment number 52.

    Eagle and Shohga: Never enough turkey talk....

    AmeliaRose (40) The music from 60s was wonderful....there was another VU track I dug out last weekend...I don't know what it was but it was as weird and wonderful as the rest of their stuff!! It would have also been more than apt for that opening sequence with Mitchell waking up with those dead girls...

    The Herman's Hermits track cracked me up...clearly, Mitchell was NOT having woken up that morning "feeling fine" at all lol...the manic look on his face as he tried to clean everything...I'm assuming his y-fronts were still as bloody as they had been, even though the rest of him was clean!

  • Comment number 53.

    Eagle, do go veggie! Yay! But only after your upcoming bloodbath...

  • Comment number 54.

    Hehe, anglo, you think of all the naughty details :)
    From what we saw with the magazine, its more than likely he went off in the same undies :)
    We saw him put trousers on didn't we, over them?

    Love that song, excpept the Halifax lyrics play in my head, not the proper ones!

  • Comment number 55.

    Anglo: Got that straight hehe, good times :)

    Dorina: I don't know where I got that from but maybe something comes through the door and takes over (maybe why she looks quite scared in the very short preview clip).

    I'm usually compeletly off with what happens anyway!!

  • Comment number 56.

    Super...loved the Chief Constable...he certainly thought that he was in control. Mitchell's not particularly interested in filling the power vacuum....bless...he's just looking for long term love but keeps getting thwarted ...ok..ok..perhaps killing a train load of humans wasn't the best way forward !

    DGTTD....think that Mitchell will have a convenient lapse of memory concerning hos Annie moment.....

  • Comment number 57.

    NWBG (33) Pleasure m'dear... :D

    Dorina (38) BHF (44): Oh dear me yes....plenty of Mitchell blood/naked scenes....we must have more of those....we've seen more of George that I thought was humanely (!) possibly so it's about time we saw more of Mitchell....not that George's derriere isn't gorgeous and peachy but I yearn for one of my own kind to, er, show us what he's made of...*ahem*

  • Comment number 58.

    52 anglo- Ha your so right- was so funny, was quite a contrast while he was clearing up all the blood =]
    oooh if you find the name of the other VU track would love to know it =]

  • Comment number 59.

    I can't get into 60s music, even for BH...is that really bad? But the soundtrack for the rest of the series has been fantastic. Love the music!

  • Comment number 60.

    lol shohga only meant it in a euphemistic (is that a word?) sense id hate to actually be a veggie lol but yes erm either way must keep Mr Mitchell entertained first :-P

  • Comment number 61.

    Hehe, yeah Mitchell is my drug of choice :P

  • Comment number 62.

    does anyone else think that the title is a bit cruel, i mean its "why are you here?" sounds slightly rude.

    maybe its just the view of a teen.....

    mind u, the way annie says it, does make it seem nicer.

  • Comment number 63.

    52/58 My fave part of the cleanup was how neatly Mitchell's sleeves were cuffed while he was tidying up!

    Anglo, did you just call George's rear "peachy"? ;-)

  • Comment number 64.

    shogha..I have pic of said peachiness on my Twitpics account.....wanna see?

  • Comment number 65.

    AmeliaRose (57) I'll try but its from a very old (cassette tape!) my ex-bloke made for me....more than, oh, well many years ago *coughs* and he didn't write down any titles...I wish I could hum it on here! lol There was another one called Sunday Morning which was all twinkly and cheerful...I suppose that would have been just as ironic as Herman's Hermits in its own way... :)

    BHF: Mention Mitchell in underwear and I'm right there....do you remember those scenes at the start of Ep2...Mitchell tied to that chair....all shiny with sweat/water/oil....bare-chested...with the rubber matting? Im still wondering what that was for exactly...was it for electric shock therapy for Mitchell? Was it because it, er, gets messy when you're tied to a chair for however many months it takes? Only Toby knows.... One sight of the bare-chested one....just sends me!

  • Comment number 66.

    Ah!!Everyone needs a George.Can not believe Season 2 is coming to an end already.Sunday nights are going to seem very empty.But at least there is the fantastic blog.

  • Comment number 67.

    Sorry, off and on distracted tonight. Miles behind.

    shohga: I thought Daisy was always the problem, never Ivan. I said ages back that Ivan was in love with Daisy, Daisy was the power & worry. In my mind Mitch is a problem & anyone close to him is playing with fire (literally as in epi 7 with Daisy). Mitch & Daisy are never a type that should be leaders or anywhere near each other.

    I think they'll turn on each other & Mitch will probably remember his friends to keep the story arc going. But, I don't know, it seems odd. A huge part of me thinks Mitch won't recover at this point.

  • Comment number 68.

    NWBG ( 62)..good point...think it's because she doesn't know what SHE is doing there...don't think that Anniw wants to pass over...think she got troubled and confused when everyhing related to the ouse started to crumble.

  • Comment number 69.

    56. I hope Mitchell doesn't get to have Hangover Amnesia as an excuse for his salacious bit there with Annie! Surely not.

  • Comment number 70.

    Lol- dw will look up Sunday Morning and see what else I stumble across, Ha- yeah you dont have to hum it- don't think it would work well on a blog =]]

  • Comment number 71.

    I remember when he was with Carl, all sweaty and half naked? But rubber matting? My brains just full of the main details.....like the nakedness ;)

  • Comment number 72.

    Hi folks....Lets cut out the numbers on the blog here, glad you said it Eagle, its all geting a bit boring...In fact, VERY BORING..We all have our sights on ep 8 now....If Mitchell is to save them from the facility, will he need to ask to cross the threshold, or dont they do that anymore.??

  • Comment number 73.

    Super:...I have faith in Mitchell finding Mitchell again....don't think he and Daisy will turn on each other ..as i said earlier ( maybe on the other blog) I think Daisy will actually 'save' them in some way. Ok she had it away with Mitchell but at some point in eps 8 she'll realise that a life without Ivan is not worth having and she'll step in to help them all survive.

  • Comment number 74.

    Godd, were all Aidan obsessed!! lol And yes I do remember the ep2 scene (very clearly =]]) lol

  • Comment number 75.

    AmeliaRose, hun, this is NOTHING on our obsession. The tip of the iceburg! We have to behave on here or else we get modded... :P

  • Comment number 76.

    Brilliant:...the asking to cross the threshold thing seems to have gone astray this series...

  • Comment number 77.

    ok...So who do we think this Amy McBride is? she's the only new character on the cast list...I'm still thinking that Brown's idea was good..that this Amy will figure in the prequel with Herrick..and maybe Mitchell..and for some reason will be the link to getting them to Wales.

  • Comment number 78.

    Damn mods lol =]
    Glad to hear im not the worst one..

  • Comment number 79.

    Not by far AmeliaRose :)

  • Comment number 80.

    Dorina: Think Amy McB's got to be one of the old ones (not us)....wonder if she was part of the original gang from London's 60s days when Herrick seemed to know all the vampires in the UK and a few others to boot...

    Concur with your remarks in post (73)...he will find himself, but I think he'll be a sadder, more haunted Mitchell too....

    Also noticed who else was on the cast list for Sunday...

  • Comment number 81.

    The threshold issue has bugged me all series. I wish they hadn't told us about it and then we wouldn't be looking for it!

  • Comment number 82.

    for some v strange reason i think this Amy McBride character wil be a ghost or something to help Annie....

  • Comment number 83.

    Anglo...sorry..who?..do you mean Lloyd?...thinking that he may have a stronger role in this final eps...hope so!

  • Comment number 84.

    Dorina: I think there will be some power thing with Daisy and Mitch but not sure to what end. I can't see Mitch just sobering up & being alright again. Just can't see it. But Daisy is the constant this series. You are right, Daisy will turn him around, dust him down &... no, she can't be a matyr, not another one! Nah not Daisy she'll probably turn up with Bernie next series.
    Sorry, steady stream of distracted consciousness taking affect. :/

  • Comment number 85.

    Minaharker (66) A very apt number if I may say so....

    Greetings...now....I need a Mitchell, never mind a George lol....oh yes, we've been yearning for Mitchell for a verrry long time now....you must check out some of our October/November blogs...brings tears to your eyes...

    AmeliaRose, DGTTD, NWBG and other non-initiates....the only thing I regret on here is that you can't get really dirty...we're quite restrained...more's the pity...

  • Comment number 86.

    77/80- Yeah think she'll be used in a flashback- I would be really interesting if she was one of the old ones, glad to hear herricks back- what a great charater he is =]

  • Comment number 87.

    I also think Mitchell can't come out of this the same. It's made me wonder about the other times he's gone off the wagon though. What happened with Josie, for instance? If she was everything to him and knew him totally and understood what he was and helped him go clean....where's the rest of that story? I never really bought he felt the same way about Lucy. It just seemed forced, as if he wanted another Josie situation so much that he was ready to project that onto Lucy. *and I'm not just saying that because they should have cast me as Lucy*

  • Comment number 88.

    lurve_BH...could be....another possibility is that Amy is linked to Kemp or Lucy in some way..the fact that Amy is Welsh leads me to think that she must in someway be the reason or link to moving from Bristol..somehow Toby has got to make the move to wales believable in the storyline.

  • Comment number 89.

    sorry my heads not here tonight lol done first minute of the video theres a lot more naked mitchell than i intended i do apologize...in my defence they really dont like him in clothes do they??

  • Comment number 90.

    Dorina (83) No sweetie...not Lloyd...no spoilers! ^^

  • Comment number 91.

    Eagle.....you don't need to apologise for naked Mitchell! I thought that too, they clearly skim read the blog and see what the people want!

  • Comment number 92.

    89 - thats more than fine by me :P

    88 - im intrigued to find out who she is and why she is there... seeming as its the last ep (sob) it is likely there is some link between her and the move... ah well only time will tell

  • Comment number 93.

    Shohga: I know! I wanted far more of the Josie/Mitchell backstory to understand how their relationship blossomed and travelled along and then why it faltered and ultimately fell apart...did he go off the wagon during it or only after she and he split up? And did he go back to his old ways totally or did he hear her voice in his head occasionally telling him that he was really a good person and he tried to abide by that? They could have a one-hour programme on that alone!

  • Comment number 94.

    @Dorian (83) a stronger role involving having his throat ripped out? :-)

  • Comment number 95.

    shohga and Super: agree that Mitchell will be changed...if in no other way that it will be hard for him to trust another human female..but...Bh3 will have him working on his fall from the wagon...Maybe he'll be tied to a chair again for a while ( a bed would be better..)

    Don't know what happened to his relationship with Josie...maybe she just decided that she didn't want to wake up one day and find that she was an old(er) woman sleeping with a young man ( although he was actually much older than her..)..maybe she wanted children...maybe they just drifted apart..don't think we'll ever find out.

    Agree with you about his thing with Lucy..somehow it never rang true for me.

  • Comment number 96.

    Dorina (88) Perhaps Amy was also trapped by CenSSA in the past or knew them from a few years before, perhaps even when Kemp was a normal bloke...do you think Amy McB was one of the vamps who killed his family?

  • Comment number 97.

    anglo:...it's not a spolier if it's already up on the episodes page.

  • Comment number 98.

    Yeah, think they'd have to moderate all our comments...;)

  • Comment number 99.

    Why has comment #1 been modded?

  • Comment number 100.

    That happened to me ages ago- think it's because it's off topic..?
