TV: Being Human

Being Human

I caught up with 'Being Human' a new series on BBC3 that follows the lives of three flat-mates. The twist? One is a vampire, one is a ghost and one is a werewolf.

The series came about after a successful pilot a while ago although, many of the main characters have different actors playing them and the plotlines are now a lot darker.

Episode 1 was very watchable. Good solid acting and the occasional humorous scene. Bit bloody though! There are support materials on-line including prequels (see below) of all the main characters - that explains the slightly unusual structure to episode 1 where I felt they needed more of a 'beginning' to set the scene.

My feeling is that it'll be a very successful series, but an immediate transfer to BBC2 would be a good strategic move.
