We’re all very keen to see what Julian Barratt and Colin Hoult add to the mix when Being Human returns for its fifth series in the next few weeks, so what better way to get ready for the launch than catching up with Series 4?
First airing twelve months ago, the fourth series of Toby Whithouse scifi smash is being repeated on BBC Three on Monday and Tuesday mornings throughout January.
Episode One had the unfortunate job of writing out leading man Russell Tovey on-screen, as well as another series regular, Sinead Keenan, who exited the show off-screen after yet another star, Aiden Turner, went off to film The Hobbit. However, the new housemates were soon up to their own fun tricks, as you can see from Episode Two – both of which are available on iPlayer now.
Episode Three, entitled The Graveyard Shift, which airs a repeat this coming Monday (January 14th) features the first TVO face to make an appearance in the show, as Laura Patch plays pretentious, pseudo-Gothic poet Michaela, who falls for vampire Hal.
You can see it on BBC Three at the appropriate graveyard hour of 3am, or you can wait for it to appear on iPlayer via the link above. If you like what you see, the series is available on dvd and blu-ray from our Amazon UK store, and dvd from our Amazon US stores now.
It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the four-week repeat run of all eight episodes concludes on January 29th, and as every season so far has held a regular Sunday night slot, we’re expecting to see Series Five première on February 3rd.
As soon as we hear any more about the mysterious involvement of Messrs Barratt & Hoult, we’ll be sure to peel, but in the meantime, stick close to the official Being Human blog for news before anywhere else. Catch a sneaky peek at Barratt into action below…
