Russell Tovey plays the lovable George, battling with his double identity as a mild-mannered and geeky hospital porter who for one night a month is transformed into a flesh-hungry, predatory werewolf.

Aidan Turner plays the good-looking and laid-back Mitchell who, in contrast to George, has the gift of the gab and an easy confidence with the ladies. But he is also a blood-sucking vampire struggling with going cold-turkey from the blood he craves.

Completing the flat-share trio is Annie, played by Lenora Crichlow, a talkative ghost lacking in self-confidence and desperate for company. Annie is still pining after her fiancé, whom she was due to marry before the fatal accident that left her with her ghostly affliction - and who happens to be the landlord of their flat.

The series follows the trio as they do their best to live their lives as normally as possible despite their strange and dark secrets.

But with unwelcome intruders into their world, rumblings about an impending revolution from the vampire underworld and constant threats of exposure - on top of the usual issues faced by young people surrounding love, work and mates - the only thing they may be able to rely on in their heightened world, is each other.

 Brilliantly written series

A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf share a house....yes, it does sound the start of a bad joke but the series itself is witty, engaging, dramatic and tense - all in each episode!

A vampire on the wagon, a ghost still in love with her ex-fiancee and a werewolf who suffers from slight OCD creates six amazing episodes created by Toby Whitehouse.

The dvd features are okay, with some deleted scenes and cast interviews, the only thing that really bothered me is that the music that was shown with each episode on the BBC have been removed and replaced with original soundtrack. Fair enough, I supposed but the entire atmosphere of the scene changes.

Also missing is the pilot episode, the 1 hour making-of special broadcasted, prequels and outtakes. It's a shame non of them were included, but now that series 2 has been commissioned, hopefully they'll appear on there.

 Breath of fresh air!

I must admit to not watching much tv these days. That is for a reason, not having the time and mostly because there is usually nothing worth watching on! However, I was flicking through the channels and happened to stumble on this show. Normally I would carry on channel hopping but I gave it a few minutes and got hooked. I actually now make a point of either taping it or watching it on catchup, something I havn't done with a tv series in years. The characters are great and are played brilliantly by the actors, who really gel well together. The thing I like about Being Human the most is it's a little bit quirky. The idea of it is clever on it's own but put that with the excellent storyline that is dark, touching and at times very funny make it the best thing to hit the box in ages. Well done the beeb, bring on season 2.

 Probably the Best British TV Series on Tele.

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

This is one of the best shows i have seen on TV, i highly recommend 'Being Human' to everyone. The show was on BBC3 after piloting on BBCiPlayer and after watching the pilot i wished they would pick it up as a series and they did.

The show is brilliantly written and directed, and the acting is just the best on all parts. I don't know her name but the woman who plays the ghost was superb, and i loved her in Sugar Rush too. The series is set out really well and builds greatly and leads on to the second series in a very strange way. The first 3 episodes are a little slow but the you can tell that it is building to something big. The end of third episode steps the series up a greater pace then the 4th episode really steps it up yet again and the 5th episode shoots them all down, and ends with the biggest cliff hanger EVER! This follows on to the 6th and last episode which was a bit of a let down, nothing too big happened. The last episode though did stir things up for the second series and really looks like they will will make the show shine.

Altogether i think that Being Human is one of the most overlooked shows on TV and would recommend it to everyone, Great Acting, Directing, and Writing. 5stars.

I've only recently discovered this show as I missed it first time round and WOW what a show! the characters are very interesting, totally wild and dark but relatable. The series just keep getting better and better, can't wait for series three! amazing acting, amazing storylines. perfect show! if you havn't watched it yet then what are you waiting for?!

I was bit surprised when my 63 year old mother asked me if I watched this show cos I hadn't heard of it. She went on to tell me that it was about a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost sharing a house and it was so good she was surprised I hadn't watched it. So I bought it and watched it and she was right (as per). What a fantastic show it is truly brilliant on every level and I just couldn't turn it off. Buy it watch it, love it and tell people to buy it and watch it. Totally refreshing, new and unique.
