  • Comment number 1.

    ha ha, episode one has my name :)

  • Comment number 2.

    oh this is so exciting! reference to series two with the type 4

  • Comment number 3.

    very very nice.... good and cryptic! and also far easier to talk about eps now! ep8 what a fantastic title! lol

  • Comment number 4.

    yes, its just a massive question mark on the screen all through that episode

  • Comment number 5.

    oooooh..thanks for info BHProductions
    Eps 2 -Think that Adam is that young vampire who is central to new online Becoming Human?...wondering about the significance of his family...unless it refers to a 'vampire' family.
    Eps 3 -type 4 ...where the zombie pops up?
    Eps 6..George's dad?....kinda thought he might have surfaced before eps 6

    Anyways...evening everyone....for those who haven't seen this on twitter....new interview re new werewolves McNair (Robson Green) and his son Tom...

    Interesting discussion on previous blog re US Being Human...can't say I'll have the time or really interest to watch it but thanks to all who have given a flavour of how they found it.

    ....and Hattie is on tonight so get ready for some serious Aidan Turner drooling!

  • Comment number 6.


    Each name has something to get our teeth into as to speak!

    I love Episode 2's title..I can hear the song now from 'The Adams Family' playing in my head! lol :O)

    Ooo episode 7 sound's enthralling..hope that's not a sad one :(

    It's a BRILLIANT idea this...wooohoo..

    Love & Hugs

  • Comment number 7.

    Type 4? Now that will be interesting! A hybrid a la 'Underworld' maybe?

  • Comment number 8.

    Just so long as Ep2 doesn't involve a lot of finger snapping!! Love that you're using titles this season

  • Comment number 9.

    Hello. I've been here for a while, but I kept my mouth shut until now. Not sure I can contain my excitement much longer...
    Right, episode titles-
    1 we already know, Lia will be in the afterlife with Mitchell.
    2. Adam being the teenage(sort of) vampire- the foursome becoming his 'family'?
    3. Herrick... Zombie... *hyperventilates*
    4. Werewolves, possibly the cage-fighting?
    5. Not as obvious, this one. Maybe a more human episode, trying to live an ordinary life for a day? (ie. the longest day of their lives)
    6. A ghost-y episode,the only other thing I can think of is the baby ghost last series?
    7. Traditional cliffhanger-filled epic battle-y pre-finale buildup.
    8. Can't come soon enough...
    I'm new to this, I'm sure others will be able to read further into this than I have. *looks at Ewan*
    Roll on Sunday...

  • Comment number 10.

    Episode 4 sounds very good The Pack

    the longest day must be about half a year after the parents evening which to me hints there will be many changes to beast to come

    Through Heavens fall now that says to me the men with sticks and rope will be coming into play again even after Annie's back.

    Still episode 8
    9 question marks what?

    Yes I know the title is under raps to prevent spoilers but still why 9.

    as always great to see a new blog

  • Comment number 11.

    Good evening Bloggers! :D *hugz* Thankyou for these Mr P! Hope everyone is well and happy and, particularly in the UK (for the moment at least, but who knows in future), looking forward Aidan being in Hattie.

    Ooh, some interesting titles-some seem to be self explanatory but others... well I'm happy to wait and find out the delights our writers have created for us. :D Would the number of question marks used in Ep8's title be significant perhaps? (9 of them, is it like a game of hangman but for supernaturals? Hehe)

    I bet none of us can wait for Sunday now eh? ;) *bounce*

  • Comment number 12.

    A 9 letter word

    suggests battle fight or something big and epic

    any other words?

  • Comment number 13.

    Ultimatum isn't really enough for it to be blanked, though.

    It could be two four letter words? Or a five and a three, depending on how you see it?

  • Comment number 14.

    9 - well done straight on and straight to analysing

    now I've had time to think after getting in

    Ep 1: Lia
    Yes we know this episode will be about settling in getting Annie back and meeting Lia
    Ep 2: Adam's Family
    Adam the teenage vampire - will this be his old family gaining a new family - the werewolves thinking what if they had a family?
    Ep 3: Type 4
    Now I happen to know of the first four episodes this is Marcus Whitney's favourite - obviously type four is reference to both CenSSA and a new supernatural now it has been acknowledged on the blog that this supernatural is a Zombie but what type Lytch is my guess.
    Ep 4: The Pack
    Definitely a werewolf heavy episode will an agreement or bonding between George and Nina McNair and Tom be reached or are more wolves kept under wraps going to arrive?
    Ep 5: The Longest Day
    Solstice? - or did something happen in the pack that means everyone has to take stock. I do have one thought that I believe might happen. Every episode takes place over more than one day this episode only one day .
    Ep 6: Daddy Ghoul
    Georges Dad might turn up we have been told this on the blog so not a spoiler, now who else from Georges past might turn up?
    Ep 7: Though the Heavens Fall
    The men with sticks and rope return to the plot is this an attack a contract being fulfilled Annie getting into a fight with them? Something big anyway.
    Ep 8: ?????????
    there are quite a lot of pretentious 9 letter words out all hinting at possible plot lines. We have herd it's EPIC so the fewer hints the better

  • Comment number 15.

    14- I'd always thought that the zombie mentioned was referring to the resurrected Herrick. If ep4 is based around McNair, maybe herrick comes back in ep3 and turns up then?

  • Comment number 16.

    Interesting hints - though they dont give much away. Good to see Brian Dooley return (he did Bernie ep in S1) And he's writing for Becoming Human so obviously likes writing for kids? And Lisa McGee - she wrote the Marigold/washing up ep in S2 I think?

    I can just see Lord Toby scratching his head - after the epic title for ep7 - what on earth (?) is he going to call ep8? Either that is he's terrified of giving anything away ? huge cliffhanger for S4?

  • Comment number 17.

    Ewan: Re. Daddy Ghoul; If it's about George's dad, why is it called daddy *Ghoul*?

  • Comment number 18.

    Evening all, particularly the newbies!

    Hmmm, let's see..

    1. Lia - we've kind of figured that one out, with Lacey Turner as the otherworldly character meeting up with Mitchell, although there might be a twist in there as well as her doing what we think she's going to do. If you follow my gist.
    2. Adam's Family - am with Dorina on this one. Seems like it might be relating to a crossover character from Becoming Human.
    3. Type 4 - having totally forgotten what the type 4's are, I haven't a clue about this one. Unless it's a zombie.
    4. The Pack - Might be about an excessive number of werewolves we just might be seeing. George being introduced to more of the beasties, perhaps?
    5. The Longest Day - Now this sounds like it's a bit of a bloodfest to me! Why else would a Being Human-type day be long? Lots of vampire/werewolf action I'm guessing, feeding, escaping, being captured, you name it.
    6. Daddy Ghoul - Wouldn't happen to be a ghoul would it? Or is it something to do with George meeting up with his past?
    7. Though The Heavens Fall - Being the penultimate episode, this sounds like it's building up to a crescendo. Does Mitchell go over to the dark side during this, or perhaps it's when he's trying to be saved by the others. Or maybe he thinks heck, I'm just bad and I'll enjoy it.
    8. ??? - The final episode has to have question marks! No-one knows what'll happen. There'll be lots of twists and turns throughout this series, so I couldn't even begin to guess until we've seen the first few episodes.

    Now my brain is exploding so I'll leave it there. Oh, this is going to be soooo good!

    Thanks again BHP, for the build-up to Sunday!xx

  • Comment number 19.

    16 there is a song called Daddy Cool I think it was used to sell cars

  • Comment number 20.

    sorry 17 not 16

  • Comment number 21.

    Still, Ghoul seems ghostie to me. And we met Annie's mum in S1 (or was it S2?) So maybe we meet her dad?

    And the Pack could be george's dad too, like family pack or something.

    Just questioning :)

  • Comment number 22.

    Ah! Thank you BHP. Look at you spoiling us!

    Liking how the episodes are now named!

    Seriously is it Sunday yet?

  • Comment number 23.

    Daddy ghoul. Hmm Annie's dad could have died or something, but since we haven't met George's Dad yet that could be the episode. It could be the pack episode though because 'pack' as in family?

  • Comment number 24.

    Wow, thanks for this BH Production Team!!

    Some very interesting titles, will be so exciting to see how it all plays out!!

    Really can't wait for Sunday now!!!

    5.Dorina, there will definitely be some mega drooling going on later, not long now,xx

  • Comment number 25.

    21 - Daddy Ghoul that means a father is dead the daddy and as I said not a spoiler as it has been revealed on the blog.

  • Comment number 26.

    Could George's dad be a ghost?

  • Comment number 27.

    Hi everyone

    (I am just copying and pasting this as I acidentally added to the previous blog! doh..lol..:O))

    As suggested by Dorina,I am going to post this article by 'Metro' incasesome of you haven't yet seen it:O))...


    Huge Hugs

SPARE ME jus start it aleady. PLIZ

  • Comment number 29.

    DGTTD..yes he is..James Fleet plays the role...not a spoiler as BHP put this info up themselves recently

    asdde..ever since end of series 2 I thought that Herrick would be the zombie..but he's not...it's a new character..if you want to know about Herrick in series 3 you'll need to read the BBC Press Pack on Being Human ...but there are mega spoilers in there!

  • Comment number 30.

    George and Nina are type threes so what are type fours.

  • Comment number 31.

    Omg, really? I knew his Dad was returning, but completely missed that he was a ghost! Or did I? Can't remem, nevermind haha!

    That'll be a sad episode!

  • Comment number 32.

    29- I'm trying to avoid spoilers for now, i'll see how my willpower holds up as the series progresses. If the zombie is a new character, my guess would be that it's something to do with the men behind the door. If they've used ghosts in the past it's only a short step from there to reanimating a corpse... (or is it? My zombie knowledge isn't great, and knowing BH it'll be something brilliantly original anyway...)

  • Comment number 33.

    yeah, like maybe the dad figures out hes supernatural cause
    george can see him

  • Comment number 34.

    With a full moon in the sky it reminds us that four days from now at this time being human returns and with the glee we feel rejoice

  • Comment number 35.

    32 - I did a zombies comparison to guess what type we'll get. Probably going to be different to all of them but here they are.

    Raised - they are the zombie movie type the groaners who go around eating brains - no dialogue so a big no to that type.
    Lytch is the more likely they are more aware of what is going on in the world. Some type of magic in that person. That calls them to remain in their bodies unable to pass over.

  • Comment number 36.

    what if herric like decomposes whilst he is leving kinda like american werewolf in london.

  • Comment number 37.

    Type 4???

  • Comment number 38.

    I think they've said that the zombie will once again be a female reminding Annie of everything she has lost, but I'm not positive. That seems to suggest some sentience though, and not just the brain-eating lot. However, if it's all about reminding Annie it seems slightly repetitive. No doubt Lord Toby and the writers have worked that out and won't disappoint.

    I hadn't heard about George's dad being a ghost, just that he would show up this season! Sounds like it will be heart-wrenching if it's so.

  • Comment number 39.

    Episode 5, The Longest Day, is the episode with Nicola Walker as guest star. She plays social worker/house inspector, Wendy. My guess is, she gets to inspect Honolulu Heights and encounters a whole lot of strange goings on, hence "the longest day"! Can. Not. Wait!

  • Comment number 40.

    Oh dear, BHP, you are awesome! But all this excitement is driving me a bit loopy! I'm so excited that I admittedly can not contribute to title/story guessing, but just been reading others thoughts, and it's making me even more excited! Oh, I need a lie down..

  • Comment number 41.

    Ooooh- mysterious episode titles.
    My guesses:
    1. Lia- I think this is the episode deals with LAcey Turner's character Lia taking center stage and playing a part in Mitchell getting Annie from purgatory. This should be a great episode with Toby taking the lead in writing.
    2. Ep 2: Adam's Family- Think deals with the boy Adam that Mitchell tries to take under his wing.
    Ep 3: Type 4 - A new creature perhaps???
    Ep 4: The Pack- Centering on the werewolves I'm guessing.
    Ep 5: The Longest Day- I think this is the episode that Sinead (actress that plays Nina) was referring to when she was showing the set of the new house where she says they all try to sit down for a meal but all heck breaks loose and they can't seem to finish their meal. Should be interesting on what breaks loose.
    Ep 6: Daddy Ghoul- The Zombie??
    Ep 7: Though the Heavens Fall - Toby Whithouse- Sounds very epic and since it mentions Heavens I'm going to assume it has something to do with Annie (hehe) her being a ghost and all.
    Ep 8: ????????? - Toby Whithouse- LOL- I guess we'll have to wait and see.

  • Comment number 42.

    SO THEN...

    The last episode is where George & Nina finally have their pack of wolf cubs...


    Tom in Oz

  • Comment number 43.

    OK - nobody seems to have spotted it, so I'll give it a mention.
    Episode 7 - Though The Heavens Fall
    The full quotation is, "Let justice be done though the heavens fall".
    Now where does that take us?

  • Comment number 44.

    41 - Good catch on hell breaking lose in The longest day what that thing will be? Still no idea.

    43 - Thanks for the full quote DR I searched for it kept getting equal rights sites along with the original motto.
    Keep the Law and Damn the consequences the whole idea of which means there will be I'm thinking an episode that means there will be something pretty big at the end. after all the Judgement on Annie has been given.

    Now at that time there might be still around Georges Dad from Daddy Ghoul and if Annie isn't taken. There will be loss. Just a thought not a spoiler.

  • Comment number 45.

    Good Afternoon bloggers!!

    Wow, just wanted to say i really enjoyed Hattie last night. Ruth Jones was excellent, as were the rest of the cast. Although it was incredibly sad, poor John Le Mesurier!!

    Imagine walking in on your wife with the much sexier and younger John (Aidan) and saying "oh i'm terribly sorry"!!!

  • Comment number 46.

    Oh and do check out behind the scenes footage from series 3 via link below, its amazing and funny!!

    Beware as it contains tiny weeny spoilers!!!


    Come on Mitchell and Annie, i soo want to see you together!!

  • Comment number 47.

    Thanks muchly for the link UTATH no spoilers for me as I couldn't resist the press release but if you did resist you'd best beware.

  • Comment number 48.

    47. Ewan, yes so far i've been able to resist the press release as i've heard you fellow bloggers mention the mega spoilers it contained!!

    And a big thank you to you and all the regular bloggers who kept me going during the quieter months on the blog with your comments and theories!!


  • Comment number 49.

    glad our journeys into the land of obsessive kept you entertained.

  • Comment number 50.

    Love the title for episode 7. One of my favourite quaotations. It looks as if justice will have to be done - no matter what the price.

  • Comment number 51.

    @ 46: Omigosh! Thank you for posting that! It makes it seem more real than just reading it in press releases!

  • Comment number 52.

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOO I Can't wait til sunday!!! Is it only on 4 8 weeks? :( i miss it wen its not on! :( Very happy 2 c lacey turners face again! :D x

  • Comment number 53.

    19. I thought of the song Daddy Cool in the right moment I read the title..

  • Comment number 54.

    Ep 2 the Addams Family - reckon this ep is all the gang living together happily in the new house. This means they've rescued Annie in Ep 1. Hope so.
    Ep 3 - Type 4. If type 4 are zombies then this must be where Herrick comes back. surely he's some type of zombie now he's been resurrected? Is Daisy in this series?
    Ep 4 - The pack. Reckon McNair is the leader of the local werewolf pack and they try to recruit George and Nina.
    Anyway probably totally wrong. Will probably have completely different thoughts after sunday

  • Comment number 55.

    43-DR-does ur quote take us to an EXECUTION in Ep8 ????

  • Comment number 56.

    21: "Ghoul seems ghostie to me."
    Nah. The word 'Ghoul' is usually associated with undead creatures like zombies and vampires (usually the former). Often they're something else, zomie-like but more monstrous, flesh-eaters. Think the deadite creatures in the Evil Dead films for example. They're associated as zombies, but they're not really. More like twisted grotesque caricatures. In this case I'm sure it's a reference to the zombie though.

    15: "I'd always thought that the zombie mentioned was referring to the resurrected Herrick."

    Because he came back from the dead? He already did that being a vampire though. And as blood was used to bring him back, I'm sure he'll remain a a vampire, albeit he could be even more twisted than he was before...

  • Comment number 57.

    Hmmm episode titles are very interesting... maybe something to do with angels and demons being part of our world too? Also the ghoul reference could be a human with an unhealthy interest in things macarbre and/or undead so maybe our heroes have a stalker of some kind? Arrrggghhh - my head hurts! Why dont they show all the episodes one striahgt after the other!!!

  • Comment number 58.

    Just watched ep 1 and can't wait for the next one!

    Ep 2 - Adam's Family: like most people have been saying is about a young vampire who goes to live with them, at least that's what it looks like from the trailers. Maybe the young boy Mitchel turned in the first series?

    Ep 4 - The pack: I think that Nina might find out she's pregnant and then there will be the whole question of whether the baby's a werewolf. I know it was said in one of the blogs ages ago that a baby wouldn't get it because it's a virus rather than a gene affected by the moon (or something like that I can't remember what he said exactly) but after seeing that first episode I started thinking well what if Nina got pregnated while she was a werewolf?

    Ep 8 - I'm just going to guess that it's called Wolf Shaped Bullet (I think it's going to have something to do with that, just hope it doesn't mean the end for Mitchell :( )

  • Comment number 59.

    Ooooh too tempting not to have a wild silly guess!

    Ep 2: Adam's Family- This has got to be the kid Mitchell turned in previous episode. He's gone off the rails, killed his mum and runs away and finds Mitchell! Typical teenager, umm, apart from the killing Mum bit.

    Ep 3: Type 4 - weren't all the 'types' in last season werewolves? perhaps new type of werewolf that doesn't have to wait til full moon to change jumps on the scene and causes chaos!

    Ep 4: The Pack / Ep 5: The Longest Day - One of these most likely deals with the possibility of werewolf pregnancy on the cards!! (come on, George would be the coolest Dad EVERRRRR)

    Ep 6: Daddy Ghoul
    This just has to be Herrick I reckon.

    Ep 7: Though the Heavens Fall
    Isn't this a part of a saying about 'justice being done' oooh. Herrick does something abhorrent and then gets another comeuppance! Take our advice, stay down fella!

    Ep 8: ?????????
    I'm going with previous bloggers guess "Wolf Shaped Bullet" -
    This has got to end with someone trying to kill Mitchell and GEORGE jumping in the way.. ~schniff

  • Comment number 60.

    EP3 Type 4 interesting . Ep6 got to be herrick. Ep7 either Annie or Mitchell? ep8 possibly bullet as mention in Ep1 does George shoot Mitchell? It is gonna be brilliant as usual anyway nice to see Robson Greene to gonna be a main character.
