Being Human, created for BBC Three by Toby Whithouse, puts the supernatural firmly into the everyday world.
That cute, geeky hospital porter? A werewolf. A flash of a sunny smile and some grey leggings? A ghost. The dark-eyed Irish guy at the bar? A vampire.
George (Russell Tovey), Annie (Lenora Crichlow) and Mitchell (Aidan Turner) just want to be normal, to fit in - to be human. Can they escape their essential natures and the threats from supernaturals and humans alike?
After a successful pilot in 2008, a full series of Being Human was commissioned and shown in 2009, with a second and third series in 2010 and 2011. As well as reviewing each episode from all three series in detail, this book looks at the birth of the show and profiles the characters and the mythology behind them. Not forgetting - of course - the plots, the themes, the darkness and the humour, in fact just about everything that being human really means.
An affectionate, humorous, and occasionally sarcastic, exploration of the world of Being Human. A must for all fans of the series.
