For those who don’t know, I am also a writer over at Werewolves.com (gasp!). Over there I frequently chat about Being Human (both the original and the SyFy version) and I just realized that I don’t give the show much love here (tsk tsk). Seeing how the show has a vampire as one of its leads, I should probably mention a bit of Being Human news. Like that Season 5 of the original BBC Being Human is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray in the US on August 20, 2013! That’s share-worthy news. Right?
Check out the DVD details down yonder.
Season 5 Description:
“Hal, Tom and Alex are three housemates with some serious issues on their hands, and they’re not just about household chores. Hal (Damien Molony) is a 500 year-old vampire, Tom (Michael Socha) is a hardened werewolf and Alex (Kate Bracken) has recently had the misfortune of becoming a ghost. But threat lurks around every corner. There is the volatile and deluded Crumb (Colin Hoult) – a newly recruited vampire, and the sinister Mr Rook (Steven Robertson) – head of a secret government department. With bills to be paid, our heroes take jobs in Barry’s kitschest hotel, but alongside the flock wallpaper and the cocktail umbrellas dwells an evil greater than anything faced before. On the face of it, Captain Hatch (Phil Davis) is just another foul-mouthed decrepit old man but he hides a dark secret that threatens not only our heroes’ friendships but the entire world.”
