A quick plug for writer, Joanne Black.

While we eagerly await the third series of this cult supernatural drama starring Russell Tovey, Aidan Turner and Lenora Crichlow, this new book examines all the characters, episodes and plots from the first two series. The mythology behind the series is also explored as are the locations and the birth of the show back in 2008. The book is illustrated throughout by Chris Wreford.

Being Human, created for BBC Three by Toby Whithouse, puts the supernatural firmly into the everyday world.

That cute, geeky hospital porter? A werewolf.
A flash of a sunny smile and some grey leggings? A ghost.
The dark-eyed Irish guy at the bar? A vampire.

George (Russell Tovey), Annie (Lenora Crichlow) and Mitchell (Aidan Turner) live in a pink house in Bristol and all they want is to be normal, to fit in - to be human.

After a successful pilot in 2008, a full series of Being Human was commissioned and shown in 2009, with a second series following in 2010. The pilot gained an enthusiastic and vocal online fanbase - a community that grew and grew throughout the series, helping to give BBC Three one of its most successful programmes.

As well as reviewing each episode from the first two series in detail, Joanne Black's book looks at the birth of the show and profiles the characters and the mythology behind them. Not forgetting - of course - the plots, the themes, the darkness and the humour, in fact just about everything that being human really means.

An affectionate, humorous, and occasionally slightly sarcastic, exploration of the world of Being Human. A must for all fans of the series.

The book is published 6th December 2010 and the full press release is now available here. Please feel free to download and promote the book via your websites and blogs.

16-11-2010 shortymcsquare: @russelltovey when are u coming back as George????? I’m missing him so much

Above: Mr Stevie Webb (Stephen Fry's other half) is currently working on the Christmas pantomime Dick Whittington. He was a bit down and tweeted on Twitter that he was "feeling used" then he withdrew it and sent out the above tweet. Matthew Cain sent back a very poignant reply. I placed their Twitter exchange here because I hope people will see how in all relationships someone usually has to sublimate their feelings at times but Matt comes home to someone who loves him unconditionally - Nelly his Russian Blue.
