Thought I'd start this one too because I know some of my fellow Who fans also love this show (and hey all but one of the main cast have been in DW - can we start a campaign to get Aidan in it too?!)

So a vampire, a werewolf & a ghost all decide to share a house together ...

When I heard this I thought it was a joke but ... this is one of my favourite shows - great characters, gorgeous actors (and they are good people too - follow or talk to them on Twitter and you'll see), gripping storylines, some of the best one liners around, and it can also be very funny and moving - more than once I've truly cried.

If you haven't caught it yet - please try to - it really is a gem.

I'm not a truly wordy person so I'll sum up my feelings about it simply like this: I LOVE BEING HUMAN!!!

Please feel free to share your BH love below - oh and quote away. Here's one to get you started:

"Did you just call me 'deadly furniture?'" Mitchell (vamp) to George (werewolf)

Oh & PS Aidan Turner is squee  Tongue

I also really like Being Human.  It is so well written and you are right - they have some great one liners!

I think it's THE best new show of recent years, it's real can't miss television for me!  I'd advise any one who hasn't watched to watch all including the pilot before the next series broadcasts.  I'd also like to add I think the recasting from the pilot were excellent choices Cheesy

I keep meaning to get into this show, but for some reason never have. I saw one episode and thought it was great, but since and before then I always seemed to miss it

If you get the chance do watch it. Curious as well - can you remember anything about the ep you saw?

It seemed to be centred on the vampire. I dont remember much about it. There was a girl in a pub. And I think someone came to the view their house or something?

Sounds like that could be the first ep of series 2 ... I might be wrong.

You can say it, but it's not an opinion I have ever read before, and the accent! *drools*
Also he's a vampire = win

He may be a little 'dirty' but that isn't always a bad thing!

I've yet to see it or Sherlock, but keep in mind I'm now finally on S2 of Supernatural. I am INFAMOUS for jumping onto shows either very late or too late (after they've gone off the air).

Yeah I'm exactly the same - it's a very rare thing for me to be with a show from the outset - always just a step behind the times. Often I watch off of other peeps recommendations. Once I start on something though I'll try to catch up as quick as I can.

Hope you get to see this at some point  Smiley

I saw the pilot when it first aired and didn't think much of it so gave series one a miss without realising that they had recast two of the characters and changed things slightly.  Then I caught a random episode of S2 and have become completely hooked ever since.
