Being Human 2.01 – The official details

Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner return in the second series of the hit BBC Three drama following the lives of three housemates who also happen to be a werewolf, a ghost and a vampire. The series gets off to a gripping start as the consequences of George murdering Herrick begin to catch up with him.

After a night in the pub, George and Mitchell are challenged in a dark alley by married vampires Ivan and Daisy, who are looking to taunt the pair in retaliation for the downfall of their late leader. Daisy, however, has more than revenge on her mind.

As well as the conflicts with the supernatural, George also has issues closer to home with his relationship with Nina. Clearly under strain after Nina’s dramatic discovery of George’s secret, the couple seem to be avoiding the consequences it has for each of them.

Nina seeks comfort from Annie, who is wholeheartedly embracing her newfound confidence by applying for a job as a barmaid at the local pub. Annie sets about her mission with her usual gusto, much to the bemusement and concern of her housemates.

Meanwhile, Mitchell meets new doctor Lucy in the hospital toilets and her sharp wit and honesty capture his attention.

Duly distracted by the new trials unfolding in their individual lives, the friends are unaware of the ominous threat that could be facing them. Are the supernatural friends safe in the world they’re desperate to be part of?

Russell Tovey plays George, Aidan Turner plays Mitchell, Paul Rhys plays Ivan, Amy Manson plays Daisy, Sinead Keenan plays Nina, Lenora Crichlow plays Annie and Lyndsey Marshal plays Lucy.

Being Human is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC’s High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.
