So long, for now...
Now that it's all calmed down, perhaps it's time for a moment of reflection. What a year it's been! Cast your mind back to June 2010 when the cast got together for the first script readthrough. Everyone looks so sweet and innocent; including our own Barry Pilling and his tentative first appearance in front of the camera. And then along came October the last day of shooting and the announcement of Becoming Human. In December Sir Toby of Whithouse released The Annie Broadcasts and we watched poor Annie, stuck in purgatory and pining for Mitchell and the others…and shed many a tear along the way.
After what seemed like a very long wait, we unveiled the new look blog and finally on January 23rd: THE MOMENT ARRIVED. Episode 1 of Series 3. We got to meet the new characters (and guest actors), McNair played so brilliantly by Robson Green, Lacey Turner's LIa and Michael Socha's Tom. All this was quickly followed by the amazing Craig Roberts introduction of Adam in Episode two and the launch of Becoming Human. You stuck with us as we tried to find out who killed Matt and we got to learn what great sleuths you were.
Meanwhile the main series brought back Herrick and the incredible acting of Jason Watkins, introduced us to Nancy (and the gorgeous Erin Richards) and we followed the wolf-shaped bullet to journey's end. And how can we forget what happened then?
So what now? What happens to Tom? And Nancy too? Is Herrick really gone? Somewhere upstairs in Touchpaper Towers Toby is planning the next series of Being Human and whatever he's coming up with we know it's going to be something quite special. Whilst Toby beavers away the blog is going to take a bit of a breather We'll be back later in the year but before we go we just want to say, Thank You. You, the fans, make this show so special and no TV show has ever had such a passionate, committed and, may we say, slightly crazy audience. On the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter you stuck with us through thick and thin. We cried and laughed together. We solved murders, lost some good friends and through it all we stayed..well, human really. And that's what it's all about in the end.
See you on the other side.
