Great Scott! It's really here....! Being Human 1955, 9pm on BBC Three.
Wow! What a week we've had! Who else is an emotional wreck?
Then Toby introduced us to the second scroll. A precious part of the vampire mythology which we can work together to decipher, and hopefully, unlock some of the mysteries of series 4. So the work began…
Then we got that beautifully written script, a last, intimate moment between two lovers, friends and frightened new parents. 'Framed in the doorway, she looks beautiful'. Sigh. And before we had a chance to recover, the letter from George to his baby daughter, Eve. Double sigh.
So, the Being Human rollercoaster was off once more - back into the light with a beautiful fairy tale from Tom. A hint of the naivety and comedy to come from the amazing Michael Socha.
We Are Human. A poignant end to an emotionally charged, hell of a week for everyone (and for me - I can tell you!).
Nipples. Human skin. Toxic blood ingestion. Vampire recorders. Murder. And we still barely know Hal!
Who's ready for Episode 2? Be here tomorrow night for the live blog - Being Human 1955, Sunday 9pm on BBCThree.
This is the first of our series of additional scenes made exclusively for the blog.
Written by the brilliant Jamie Mathieson, and staring the wonderful, charming Darren Evans as the worlds most talkative vampire - Dewi.
Last night we were introduced to a set of scrolls that foretold one of the five vampire legends - The War Child.
Online, we will release a second set of scrolls, and it's up to you to decode and decipher the meaning. As the series rolls along - can you unpick the mystery?
Will there be more nipples? Because... 'Oh my god, that's human skin!'
'I need to be with my Nina.'
And with that, through the door, and our of our lives he went.
A huge, loving farewell to the magic, talented, amazing, kind and brilliant Russell Tovey and his wonderful portrayal of George. Our dear, dear, George.
Recover from the dramatic fallout of the first episode of the new series and leave your tributes to our favourite, most beloved werewolf right here.
Aw WOOOOOOOOOO! *sniff sniff* We’ll always have a ‘hole’ in our heart for George.
It's just the kitchen in the back of a normal, everyday cafe, right?
Well it was until it became associated with our favourite Barry household.... and we're pretty sure Tom did get the job. Check out his dubious interview here.
Being Human is only 1 sleep away. It's tomorrow night - can you believe it? See you here, tomorrow night for the live blog & countdown from 8pm.
Being Human Returns, Tomorrow 9pm, on BBC Three.
I’m sure we had one of those washing machines when I was growing up – and look at that kettle! Tea for how many, Annie? 400? Have the fans turned up for a brew?
I’ve been playing ‘spot the kitchen stuff we used to own’, I mean seriously, didn’t everyone have that pea green 70’s thermos in their house?
And what’s with the perfume bottle in the kitchen? Has Heston moved in?
But maybe I’m skirting round the real issue here…
Being Human returns 9pm this Sunday on BBC Three. 4 little sleeps.
