THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC

the_trio_in_series_2.jpg

Anyone with ears will know that the music of Being Human is, of course, awesome. To find out how these iconic tracks were chosen we caught up with Ross Sellwood, the Music Supervisor for series 1 & 2, to shed some light (and sound) on the subject...

You're a Music Supervisor... What is that?
We find the music for a series, negotiate a fee to licence it with the record labels and publishers who own it and try to convince the artists and their managers that it's a good series to be involved with.

We also work with the composer, mostly when they want to test out ideas. Actually, the majority of the music (and definitely some of the best music) in the series is specially composed by Richard Wells, so I should be clear we're talking about the licenced tracks here (anything with words in really)

How do you and the directors decide which music tracks to use in the series?
You'd have to include the editor in that question... he makes it work or fail with the pictures. So if he doesn't think it works, then it's all over pretty quickly.

The big questions we ask are what emotions are you (the audience) going to be feeling and what are the characters feeling. Music can do a lot that dialogue can't. It can foreshadow something, remind you of something, tap into the primitive brain, bring out a message or develop a theme and it can stimulate a range of emotions in a sequence that would be a lot less compelling without it.

Generally, we try mix it up with some achingly hip new artists, some more established ones... and a few that seem a bit random, but somehow really work. Then we hope it all hangs together.

There's also a large measure of bloody-minded determination in the decision process, which is very important.

What is your favourite use of music in a scene from eps 1-4?
Probably all of episode 1.

The Cure was the hardest one to get right - it was the 28th track we'd tried on that sequence. Seriously. Willy Mason's track "Simple Town" for when George + Nina are falling apart was an idea I had for a completely different scene. (Actually, I think it was probably an idea for that Cure scene...) And The Accidental "Time and Space" had just the perfect tone and message and for me, just stuck to pictures the first time we tried it.

Also Mumford and Sons "Sigh no More" in episode 2 - it's a 2 minute sequence (which is a very long music cue) and it's such a powerful scene the music had to be spot on and I think this track nails it. I think the band liked it as well...

Finally, Farewell to My Friend - Loner (actually an early idea for the Mumford and Sons sequence...) which was a really personal song for the guy who wrote it and he really likes the use as well. It's the last track in ep 2. If you cried a bit with this one, that's ok. There's no shame in that.

Do you and the directors ever have arguments over music?
Haha - yes. Some really good ones too, but that's not the norm and it's a good thing because people should feel very strongly about music. Each of the tracks we use has a real purpose to it. Nothing's in there casually - there's no musical wallpaper - and there's a lot of "spirited debate" about some of it.

What have you learned from doing the series one music that you've carried into series two?
Back up your music searches to an external harddrive so when you accidently delete a whole folder instead of just one tune, you don't have to cry in the office.

Are there any tracks you could change if you had the chance?
No. There are some I wish we didn't have to change. But we do when we can't afford them or get permission to use them...

Can you give us a hint as to some of the music in episodes 5-8?
There's an episode set in the 60's with probably the best opening track yet. I wish I could say it was my idea, but the director aced that one.

Ep 6 has a lot of tracks from people with crazy European accents. If I was writing this after ep 6 had gone out, I'd probably have to add another couple of tracks to the favourites list.

And there's some 16th century Italian chorus and possibly some country. But we're still working on 7 and the last episode and I can't say how these will sound. Not because I'd be giving anything away, but because I really still don't know how these will sound.

Except that they'll sound really, really good. Obviously.

    Yay! I'm the first!!

  • Comment number 2.

    It's great to hear from Ross... this is what makes BH so great... getting to know everything behind the scenes! Makes us appreciate the series that much more!

    I really don't know how you do it.... watch a scene and say that needs this music or that... but you do it perfectly! and time everything perfectly like with the "Sigh no more" think he sings "I know you" JUST as Nina recognizes Carl! it was brill! and has introduced me to so much new music too!

  • Comment number 3.

    Thank you so much for this!
    I have always thought that the music used in BH since the pilot has been such an important part of the show and I find it very interesting to find out how, why some of the songs and scores are chosen or created.
    Thank you! :-)

  • Comment number 4.

    Lovely insight - thanks. Fascinating that they are still working on ep7 - shows how much work goes into an ep - long after the actors have left.
    Nothing about the DVD permissions though? a frequent complaint here on the blog?

  • Comment number 5.

    love the music, they alway seem to get it right, the right music fr the right mood, however they never sa anything about the instrumental music which is the bit i love the music, so mayb they could add tht in?

  • Comment number 6.

    Ross,

    Thank you for the insights into BH's music. I would really like to know more about the instrumental tracks used in Series 2 ... is there any chance that these instrumental tracks will eventually be released on CD (or perhaps uploaded to the BBC3 BH site as MP3s)? Thank you!

  • Comment number 7.

    (6) I'm all for a soundtrack album with some of the instrumental music and the actual songs used.

    And hooray! This is basically a massively detailed answer to a question I put on the Ask Toby blog post. (Not that I am claiming credit for it happening of course, it's just a nice coincidence)

    The music of BH is really one of my (many) favourite things about the show. Every choice is surprising, compared to what other shows are doing, yet they all work brilliantly and its introduced several artist to my ears who I wouldn't have listened to before. So cheers, Ross! :)

    Looking forward to seeing what the crazy accents are about, maybe some sort of flashback set in Eastern Europe ... or how about a holiday for Annie, George and Mitchell! :D - as if that would happen.

    I hope we get another one of these for the last four episodes too. Pretty please, blog team?

  • Comment number 8.

    Hi all *waves like a madman*

    Yes DeadlyFurniture (Comment #7), Ross will be back to give us more updates about the music we're about to experience in the latter half of the series.

    Also, several of you have been asking about the musical score. Don't worry, we're on it and hope to give you more of an insight soon.

    Don't forget, next ep is at 9pm Sunday night on BBC Three. Not long now!

  • Comment number 9.

    Hello!!! *waves back then has a George-like Tourettes attack*
    Erm, parking ticket? :)

    Yay, just what I wanted to hear, cheers BHP! You really are spoiling us this week.

    "Don't forget" episode 5 tomorrow, you say? How could we?? I'm already counting down the hours :D

  • Comment number 10.

    Haha! Parking ticket? Hmmm... We do not believe you. Am going to stop waving now, arm is hurting. Might play the Mumford & Sons track for the bazillionth time...

  • Comment number 11.

    Thankyou so much for this BH production. You're spoiling us rotten!

    And how could we possibly forget, 9pm Sunday, BBC Three, Being Human ....even a child knows that! lol

  • Comment number 12.

    Haha! If they ever reschedule it, I am getting my marigolds on in protest!

    Also listening to Sign No More, I always hear Mitchell saying "Hello, Police, I'd like to report an incident I saw earlier today" in my head over *that* specific bit.

  • Comment number 13.

    Thanks for the insight Ross.
    I think the music tends to be the easy to 'get at' side. But only because it is so emotive and important. I heart season 1 music & this series has shown me music that I would never normally listen to.

    Any music producers who are umming and ahhhing about whether they should allow their music to be sent to this series are seriously out of touch. I am still recc'ing music to twitter & beyond about Being Human S1/2 music finds.

    You do an amazing & important job.. hope you didn't cry too much. ;) I've done that myself when 6 years of d/l's disappeared. The cry of 'Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!' could be heard from miles around.

  • Comment number 14.

    thanks team and Ross of course

    the tunes are great they really do make the show so your doing a great job keep it up!

    i got a new person to watch he show last week and she loved it and has spent the last week watching my DVD of series 1 shes hooked now hehe

    and i cant wait for Sunday its the only thing worth watching every weekend (although I'm parshall to abit of dancing on ice but shh! don't tell anyone)

  • Comment number 15.

    I love all the choices for the BH music. without the really good music the show wouldn't be such a big hit :) Yay, its nearly sunday again. BH is the only highlight of my week at the momement (wow that sounds a bit sad lol)

  • Comment number 16.

    Thanks BHProd for getting Ross to share his expertise and enthusiasm for the music used in BH2...I loved the list of music which BHProd put up not long agao aboout the music used in BH1 and look forward to similar list for this series....great to hear music new to me and to read about the amount of thought that goes into each music choice. Also want to add here how much I like Richard Well's music in both series.
    Interesting comment about the 60s music which I think is tomorrow night's prequel or focus?...can't wait....and wondering about music in eps 6 with tracks from all those 'people with crazy European accents'....having grown up with people with crazy European accents I'm agog to find out who these musicians are!

    I've only also just seen the last blog vid introducing Phil ( hi there) and want to join others in saying a HUGE thank you to Matt Bouch...I saw Matt at the Nottingham event in Oct and was struck by his sense of humour and great rapport with Colin and the cast. Give him a great send off!

    Really looking forward to tomorrow's episode ..and not wishing to detract from the continuing, interesting (but at times 'rather serious') discussion on the 'tone' of BH2 to date on the last blog ....here's a thought for the morrow...

    ...Mitchell's underpants anyone?.....

    ..and just to lower the tone even more.....

    ...looking forwrd even more to seeing the gorgeous vampire naked and covered in blood!

  • Comment number 17.

    Evening all...hope you've all had a good Saturday..

    Dorina: Seconded...all of it! Especially the last part.

    Loved the music to both series, the Mumford and Sons bit and Alabama3 were my particular favourites, just so suited to the scenes they were used for..

    Wonder what the 60s track is?...let's hope Paint It Black is in there somewhere because if any track is suited to Mitchell's past life/present thoughts, that one is..

    BH PROD and Ross: Many thanks for this...very useful info and much welcomed!xx

  • Comment number 18.

    Showbiz (Muse) will always remind me of Mitchell - one of my favourite musical moments from both series :-)

  • Comment number 19.

    Dorina... lol... can we have a new blog post purely devoted to the discussion of Mitchell's 60's undies? pmsl!

    And when ever I think of him covered in blood I always remember Aidan saying about it being "minty".

    BTW... who else is in London tommorrow? I will be leaving just after the Q&A so I can get home, get kids asleep and out of the way ready for BBC3!! he he!

  • Comment number 20.

    Oh thank you thank you for this post. I love the music you select for various scenes and I find it so poignant and want to download it immediately.

    I think I found Richard Wells's muisic at beginning of Ep5 Series 1 really emotional to George's voice over absolutley mind blowing that I wish I could've been asked onto Desert Island Discs for my selections but there you go that aint gonna happen so I'll just celebrate your fab selections!

  • Comment number 21.

    pharmcat: yes that was a great track whilst listening to Mitchell's temptation. I was just listening to that earlier when I was out with the dog.

  • Comment number 22.

    Sorry spelling all a bit out in post 20 as just have decided to open 2nd bottle of wine with alpha male.

  • Comment number 23.

    I would love to see a soundtrack interspersed with Richard Wells'incidental music. I don't know How that would work in a copyright way but hey!

  • Comment number 24.

    Omigod am i really here on my own on a Saturday night and everyone else is at a party/salsa class?!!??

  • Comment number 25.

    thanks for the very interesting post, it's lovely to see how all the pieces fit together. (just as an aside, has there ever been a costumes one? that would be very welcome!)

    does anyone have any suggestions for Being Human-esque music they'd like to see in the show or that makes them think of it? the shuffle on my iPod has turned me back to one of my old faves recently - Rialto. just in case anyone remembers them, it's really made me think of BH!

  • Comment number 26.

    with less than a day to go before 60's Mitchell I'm thinking of possible sound track songs Rock the Kassba wild one and of course with the realization of what he's done when he meets Josie The Who with Who are you admittedly too obvious I really have no idea

  • Comment number 27.

    I'm thinking Spirit in the sky : Norman Greebaum

  • Comment number 28.

    * Greenbaum!

  • Comment number 29.

    ...Or the Kinks: Dead End Street. Actually anything by The Kinks!

  • Comment number 30.

    What'sthat track by














    What's that track by "The Doors" ......riders in the storm....quite haunting ...very 60s ish






    2The Doors"

  • Comment number 31.

    sorry ..a complete hash there ..trying to do too many things at once!

  • Comment number 32.

    Yess Helen - absolutly anything by the kinks! I'm getting too excited by the idea hehe!

  • Comment number 33.

    I am interested to see what Herrick is up to in the flashback, he's been such an influence on the show since his death, but it will be good to see him for real once more.

  • Comment number 34.

    I was always curious as to where the name Herrick came from. I think I've cracked it. In the cartoon, Count Duckula has an arch enemy called Doctor von Goosewing, but his right hand man was called Heinrich! tenuous???!!!

  • Comment number 35.

    (34) Just looking up the meaning of Herrick (as you do :D) and it means "war ruler". Interestingly appropriate.

    While we are on the subject of names, does anyone know why Mitchell prefers to be called by his last name? No one ever calls him John, well only once as Big Bad John, maybe its since his army days being Private Mitchell or whatever he was and it just stuck. Maybe its worthy of an Ask Toby question?

    It can't be a vampire thing because although we had Mitchell and Herrick, we also have Daisy, Ivan, Lauren and Seth who all use (probably) their first names.

  • Comment number 36.

    Love the music for both series 1 & 2, especially Florence & The Machine used in trailer for Series 2 & during episode(s). I love Florence & the Machine nearly as much as BH!
    BH production - are you serious in reminding us what time next episode is on? can't you tell we are all eagerly awaiting every word spoken & plot twists & turns? (did I go on a bit then?!).
    Dorina - completely agree about the Aidan naked/semi naked covered in blood!

  • Comment number 37.

    "Big Bad John" might be known as Mitchell because, in his youth, John was such a common name it would be something to differentiate him from all the other Johns.

    And Count Duckula? Not sure about a link to Herrick, but he would make a good mascot or inspiration for the folk at Vampire AA, being a vegetarian vampire duck. But they might need his Nanny to look after them as well; she'd keep them in order. And make sure they were all eating properly!

    The Duckula revival starts here . . .

  • Comment number 38.

    Dorina, Anglo, SweetLyssa: Brilliant idea, yes, we do desperately need a blog post dedicated entirely to Mitchell's 60's underpants!! pmsl! It'll definitely encourage lots of discussion!

    12 hours to go!

  • Comment number 39.

    Deadly furniture - I've wondered about the names thing but I put it down to people in some places take their surname not their real name, my best friend's dad was "monty" shortened from "montgomery" which was his surname (never did find out his real name, lol), also in some work places they tend to use surnames, when my dad was a postman they all used surnames apart from dad, who cos he came down from scotland was just called "Jock" and that stuck... tho they did tend to put a "y" on the end, like "Bridge" was "bridgey" type thing.


    Anyhow... gotta get going now... gotta get to london for the Q&A at the Blast thing,

  • Comment number 40.

    with under half a day to go cast list for next week is up and still no Nina

  • Comment number 41.

    also looks like Kemp gets a flashback in ep 6

  • Comment number 42.

    and no Daisy - shame

  • Comment number 43.

    Does anybody else get an Abba attack every time they see the title of this blog post? Darn song is buzzing around my head right now.

  • Comment number 44.

    could be worse once I got a spice girls song stuck there I will not say witch one no tempting fate

  • Comment number 45.

    hi all....did anyone see Lenora on 'Something for the weekend'?...she was really good...saying how excited she was about S3. She looked incredibly beautiful....but then she always does....I am not jealous in any way of course..and she said about teaching Aidan to bake...and said "Whatever we...WE?...WE?...have in the fridge" ....(am I reading too much into that?).

    ewan (40)...No Nina??...not liking the sound of that...go back and check again.

    anglo...Don't be telling me it's not Sunday...I have checked the calendar...it is.

  • Comment number 46.

    checked double checked all the rest checked no Nina on plus side Nina not in Nina not die yet also means Nina not main character (according to season 2 hints) character dies is one of three

  • Comment number 47.

    ooh ewan..this does not sound good..whichever way you look a it...not good. Not one of the three..surely?..(and no I am not calling you Shirley)

  • Comment number 48.

    Just had a thought...if she is not in the cast list...maybe we don't see her again until she comes back in EP8 and saves them all.....I can't bear to think of George having such a broken heart....Toby wouldn't do that to us...would he?

  • Comment number 49.

    with four episodes left the tension is starting to mount and the possible deaths playing a tag team race in my head so to Toby I just want to say good luck we're all counting on you

  • Comment number 50.

    vampfan:..hi here...all indications are that Lenora and Aidan are ' a couple'. You and I and a few others spotted how close they were in Nottingham...they were practically joined at the hip in london on Jan 7th..imside and outside the theatre....she was standing right next to him when he was having a fag outside the theatre and when I gave her sweets and him chocs...they left togteher in a car ...they were together at the South Bank and Radio Times events recently and the Raido Times described them as the 'hottest couple at the event'. So...I rest my case...

    Also spotted no mention of Nina in eps 5 credits...suspect that she won't make an appearance again until the next full moon! Looking forward to seeing Jason Watkins again this eve...his lines as Herrick had me rolling on the floor at times in series 1

    Not sure about the use of surnames for only Herrick and Mitchell..can't really imagine them being called William or John throughtout the show,..would have diminished their power/presence somehow.

    hope all bloggers are well this v cold Sunday pm and looking forward to 9pm ...and now back to serious things...

    ...Mitchell's underpants anyone?

  • Comment number 51.

    Afternoon bloggers! Just waiting for dinner so you have my undivided for the next 5mins.

    VF: Yes it is Sunday!...but not yet 9pm...just seen the Lenora thing from iplayer and didn't notice the bit about her teaching Aidan to cook or bake but did notice that she's saying the word "fantastic" the same way he does...slightly missing the first 'a' out so that it sounds like "funtastic"...

    And how are you if you're still around that is...?

    Dorina: Hello there! Totally with you on the L&A thing...be surprised if they weren't together...did you notice the 'fanastic' thing? The music is excellent throughout S1 and S2 and as for Mitchell's undies....well, let's just say he's great with or without them..hehe

  • Comment number 52.

    Hi Dorina...I know... you are right...but hey!...I am with you about Herrick...I loved him ...well in a 'wanted him dead' kind of way, but he was hilarious at times...And yes, William and John would have sounded a bit Enid Blyton....

    Don't get me started about those under-crackers and the hair...there had better be a really, really good explanation for those.

    Just a little more than six hours now!

  • Comment number 53.

    I did tell myself not to do this but I thought it was Jon not John

  • Comment number 54.

    ewan.....love you loads but it's a girl thing...H..no H...it's all to do with the face...

    anglo...not 9pm...whoa, man way to harsh my mellow....sorry there maybe a sixties thing tonight and just getting in the mood. Hehe....You well?

  • Comment number 55.

    Afternoon Anglo, Dorina, Vampfan and ewan! Just watching Something for the Weekend now...waiting for Lenora....

  • Comment number 56.

    Ah one of those things we lesser mortals will never comprehend

  • Comment number 57.

    Yo guys, not long to go now! Don't forget an episode 5 blog post will be up from 8pm tonight for you to go crazy about the show before and during the episode.

    Woop woop!

    PS - Yes Mitchell will be in his pants. And expect a few suprises (Yes, I know we say that every week. But these are mega ones...)

  • Comment number 58.

    Ooh, thanks BHproduction!! When will Mitchell be out of those pants then????

  • Comment number 59.

    jooos...Hi..pay attention when they ask her about baking...(God, did I really just say that?)

    ewan....not lesser, just different..very, very different

  • Comment number 60.

    quick question is there a episode clip in SFTW

  • Comment number 61.

    Hi TEAM...what's mega? the surprise..or the underpants? (Sometimes you do confuse me...but in a good way!)

  • Comment number 62.

    Joooos: Afternoon hun...in answer to your question, let's hope he is... for a long time...it's been a while...and we still haven't seen his blog...

    VF: Hello there...how are you? I totally missed the bit where she said she was teaching him cooking stuff...where was that bit as in mins? I still have iplayer up...

    And the undies thing had better be good...that hair reminds me of a 60s singer called Donovan...he even looked a bit like him, without the blood of course, in the trailer...

  • Comment number 63.

    Ewan: Hi there... no clip for BH in SFTW sadly...

  • Comment number 64.

    Shame still there goes 90 mins procrastination going to have to do some work instead be back before the surprising surprise

  • Comment number 65.

    anglo...sorry haven't got the clip now but it is when Lenora is actually in the kitchen cooking with Simon Rimmer..she says abot teaching Aidan to cook (I think) banana/walnut bread.

  • Comment number 66.

    BH PROD: Thanks for the reminder! Am sure there'll be loads of blog posts about pretty much everything, including Lenora's foray into daytime Sunday tv and Mitchell's unmentionables...can't wait for 9pm!xx

  • Comment number 67.

    VF: Thanks Vampy I'll check it out later...had your Sunday lunch yet? Noticed that BH Prod didn't mention mega surprises and Mitchell's undies in the same sentence...does this mean that we eventually get to see his blog? hehe

  • Comment number 68.

    anglo.....(67) I blogging well don't have that sort of blogging luck.

  • Comment number 69.

    I do love a prequel, and this one has Josie, Herrick and Mitchell in the 60s. Should be interesting. :D

    I enjoyed the pre-title monologue sequences in series one, but I think I like the mini-prequels a little bit more. I like how we are guarenteed to find out something from our characters' past every week, Mitchell has all this history to fill in which we have only scratched the surface of.

    Anyone else prefer one over the other? I suppose Mitchell in his pants could swing the vote on this one. :D

  • Comment number 70.

    Anglo, ewan: There is a clip on SFTW (about 30 mins in). It's with Annie and the ghost baby. It's a new clip (I've not seen it before)...before the clip we've seen where George comes home & sees Annie with the baby.

  • Comment number 71.

    DeadlyFurniture: Yay for prequels! Last autumn most of bloggers were rabbiting on about 60s prequels and wanting to know more about Josie and Mitchell and their beginnings...hope it's an informative prequel and not just a couple of minutes....wouldn't it be great if they put the entire prequel (if it were possible) up on YT or BBC site for us to check out?

    Can't imagine Mitchell remaining in his M&S y-fronts too long somehow!

    Ewan: Apologies....there is a small clip from this week's Ep5 in SFTW showing Annie and her babysitting...very short.

  • Comment number 72.

    Hi gang..just watched SFTW...yeh saw the clip with baby, baby's mum and annie...explains what happened to them and why they ( mom and baby) haven't as yet passed over so to speak.
    Lenora is so confident isn't she in interviews and these sort of situations..Russell too..and yet the gorgeous one seems to not quite have that level of confidence in interviews when on his own ( apart from when he's doing interviews for the blog) Caught where she talks about teaching Aidan to cook banana bread and how much he likes it and variations there in...

    Ah BHProd ...yes...we are...and we aren't ...looking forward to seing those underpants tonight...and let's hope that scene with the awful hair doesn't last long....I can only say that it is not a groovy look for Mitchell!

    But..don't get me wrong...any future scenes with the vampire in undies ( well..unless they're female undies of course...) will be very much appreciated. And as joooos has pointed out..scenes with no undies even better...!

  • Comment number 73.

    VF: (68) We might well get some bloggingly good luck tonight, with a bit of, er, luck..

  • Comment number 74.

    Dorina: Preferably not even a sheet....

  • Comment number 75.

    Anglo (73). I hope you're right!

  • Comment number 76.

    anglo:....too true...it's been a long time since that Des Rom action...

  • Comment number 77.

    Dorina..she was brill wasn't she?..and did you hear Tim Lovejoy saying Russell was a 'top man'...I remember seeing Russell on SFTW when they were 'selling' BH after about 1 ep of S1...Now they are saying it is the most popular BBC 3 prog ever..but we knew that already didn't we?

  • Comment number 78.

    Joooos, Dorina, VF: Here's to a undie-less Aidan tonight then! And we always knew BH was gonna be big...sorry, Aidan has just sprung to mind again....in that clip of him putting his trousers on (not in BH, if you remember folks)...

  • Comment number 79.

    OOhhh...just remembered...meant to ask...anyone watching Material Girl?...(only started watching cos it was Lenora...now hooked)...The whole thing hinged around her boyfriend ditching her..then after several eps. we get to see him....it's Carl..oooh confused. My brain is only just grasping Lizzie as Daisy..now I have got to decipher Carl as Jed....

  • Comment number 80.

    vampfan: too true ( am i repeating myself?..) most popular and successful BBC3 prog. Mind you...apparantly the ratings figures are going down..bit of a worry...started out at 1.4 million and now are at about 800,000. Same true for Material Girl although that has more watching as on BBC1 ( sorry lenora.watched it a couple of times and it's not really grabbing me..!)

    Still think that BH should have been shown on BBC1

    BHProd..do you know why there are no more trailers being shown for BH2?..they were everywhere on the Beeb for first three episodes and then they stopped...too expensive?...not needed ? ....might help bring back ratings..just sayin.....

  • Comment number 81.

    VF: Is that the clip we've just seen on SFTW? Where she walks away from somewhere Chris is trying to get a job? Carl...that's Mr Creepy from Ep2 or 3 isn't it...why do all these actors start talking parts that overlap with other things we're already seeing them in...very confusing to we ladies of, well, let's say over 30..

    Dorina: Exactly! Thought they'd taken all the trailers off but there were one or two short original ones on last night on BBC3 but no actual trailers from the next episodes....thought it might be one reason why viewing figures had dropped too...come on BH...any explanation for why fewer trailers around for S2??

    Dorina(80)..can't believe the fugures are going down?

    I've finished watching SFTW. I'm really hungry now. I'd like some banana bread, I think.

    So, I'm thinking, if we only get to see Mitchell in his little white pants tonight, then episode 7 is going to be the "naked, covered in blood" one...bring it on...

    anglo: not wishing to disappoint you darling but I have a feeling no naked Mitchell tonight..i think that will be in either eps 7 or 8 when there's some sort of bloodbath goes on no doubt involving the vampires and people belonging to cenSAA..possibly he and Lucy are naked and then he gets attacked...or they are attacked..or...or....

    ...and I also thing we won't see the sort of 'love action' going on as in Des Rom as BH is not really that into sex scenes ....but a bit of naked bum will do nicely thank you...

    Watching 'Something for the Weekend' on iPlayer. End of April shooting sounds promising for the rumoured Autumn series 3, I think.

    anglo (81)...you have thrown me now...do I mean Carl?...I meant the gay vamp who killed his lover...who they shipped out to Brazil..Carl?...(think it's my age!!)Anyway it's him

    Dorina: lol...wasn't expecting Des Rom hun...it was never going to be that! But we might get the odd flash of his chest...that'll do for me, at least for now...just think...some peeps get to see that when he's just doing his acting job...how lucky can you get? Still think its either Lucy or Daisy he gets down and dirty with...

    VF, yes you mean Carl...and to add more confusion....he played Joe in This Life!

    DeadlyFurniture (87): It's so exciting to hear that filming will start soon, and that we won't have to wait a whole year for BH series 3!

  • Comment number 92.

    VF: Oooops....sorry....that was my fault....I was getting Carl confused with Saul....this is what happens with Mitchell, undies (any variety), chairs, silk ropes, massage oil and four-poster beds are mentioned...brain turns to strawberry mousse, spelling goes to pot and I have to lie down/take a cold shower/ have electric shock therapy... rubber mat anyone?

  • Comment number 93.

    Joooos...that's pretty spooky...or maybe what happens when you get into Aidan mode...modd..meltdown...oh to be Lenora for a day...and night....

    vampfan...sad but true re ratings..you can google them.

    DeadlyFurniture...yeh so 4 months shooting ( because i think BH3 is another 8 episodes) would mean filming through end of April to end of August...I sorta thoguht it wouldn't be shwon until next Jan 2011...ok..another question for BHProd...are you able to give us a heads up on when BH3 will be screened or has that not been scheduled yet?
