Being Human

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Thanks to my friend Luciana, we have HQ screencaptures from Claire’s guest appearance in the pilot episode of Being Human.

Being Human is a supernatural drama from the BBC that revolves around the concept of two young men—Mitchell and George–sharing a flat. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television the twist is that Mitchell (Aidan Turner – The Tudors) is a vampire and George (Russell ToveyLittle Dorrit, The History Boys) is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is pair’s newfound home is haunted by the ghost of Annie (Lenora Crichlow – Sugar Rush).

The “complete” series 1 is already available on DVD in the UK, but… while this is a great show, its DVD release is shockingly poor. This is a terrible DVD “complete” set, one of the very worst lack of efforts they’ve ever done. The BBC did an astounding job of producing extra material for this show for their website (short features filmed specially for the site showing some of the history of the leads prior to the show, actors filming behind the scenes diaries, etc) and for BBC3 (the excellent Unearthed documentary and the pilot episode that started the whole thing). And NONE of it is on the “complete” DVD. On top of that, much of the distinctive music from the show which helped set the atmosphere has been replaced with bland stock stuff.
