The O.C.D.

This animation is another cute exchange between George (Russell Tovey) and Nina (Sinead Keenan) which is part of the deleted scenes package available on the Being Human DVDs. George, Russell's alter ego, is almost O.C.D. and probably has a disorder similar to Aspergers (an Autism spectrum disorder, usually for bright people who have some difficulties responding and adapting to change). George doesn't always give an appropriate or expected response to many situations in this series - he has a high IQ and still goes around obsessing about 3 different kinds of upholstery cleaner! Russell plays the character so well - he's true to the disorder but comical enough to elicit laughter without insulting the people who suffer from the real syndrome.
