ragingoodfella: @russelltovey u git. so jealous of people who have perfect vision.

I see the end coming…a wolf shaped bullet!

marcuswhitney1: So only 2 more episodes of Being Human left! What do you think will happen folks?

Theladyreed: @marcuswhitney1 all I know is that my life will be in tatters when it’s over. I need Annie and Mitchell to do the bad thing too ;)

marcuswhitney1: @Theladyreed the episodes just get better and better!

valeriemeachum: @marcuswhitney1 Only thing I'm sure of is that we'll all be on the edge of our seats! #beinghuman

indilflo: @marcuswhitney1 dunno, I think I'll be quite happy just by seeing some more topless Tom McNair. Simple things make me happy, you know?

Dorina335: @marcuswhitney1 Thinking that it's Herrick's 'journey' which draws in Mitchell.Suspicious about Lia..just hope that Toby surprises us all!

angloirishgal: @marcuswhitney1 As long as I see a great deal more of Mitchell..ahem..I'll be made up! Loving S3, I want to be surprised so I shan't guess

Ishbel_Haf: @marcuswhitney1 Twist, turns, blind alleys, red herrings, gore, witty one-liners, angst and suspense. And for ep 8...

Dorina335: @Theladyreed I don't get why Mitchell and Annie can't...he clearly can 'feel' her, witness the stroking of her leg in eps 6 and snogging!.

indilflo: @Dorina335 @theladyreed I actually have the same question, I mean..if they can kiss and hug, why wouldn’t the rest be impossible?

Dorina335: @Theladyreed it can't happen darling...coz then they'd be 'normal'....cue end of #beinghuman @_llamaface @indilflo

Ishbel_Haf: @Tom_In_Oz_ You're preparing for the return of Dallas, aren't you? :-) "Who shot JR?" @marcuswhitney1

Tom_In_Oz_: @marcuswhitney1 George will wake up and it was all a dream.....or was it!

JamesaFleet: Thrilled by messages about #beinghuman thank you. George's mum and I dropped many hints about coming back next series. Fingers crossed. x

russelltovey: @JamesaFleet you were exceptional dad... A very proud son here! X

Tom_In_Oz_: A mystery @bbcbeinghuman @russelltovey @jamesafleet In Being Human if George is Jewish, why was his father's burial conducted by a priest?

angloirishgal: @Tom_In_Oz_ Was it because his mother is Jewish? Her name is also Ruth, may be no connection.. @bbcbeinghuman @russelltovey @jamesafleet

JamesaFleet: @angloirishgal @Tom_In_Oz_ @bbcbeinghuman Yes that's it. Ruth must be Jewish. I'll ask her when she comes back from the shops. #sheneversaid

Tom_In_Oz_: @JamesaFleet Good 2 know because they just can't cover everything in the BBC press releases it's nice the real people can answer our questions. Thanx, George's dad.

angloirishgal: @JamesaFleet It's tough being married when she never tells you anything @Tom_In_Oz_ @bbcbeinghuman

Tom_In_Oz_: @JamesaFleet @angloirishgal @bbcbeinghuman just realized, we now know George Sands senior has allowed his Jewish wife to raise a Jewish son!

Ishbel_Haf: @Tom_In_Oz_ Don't you have to convert to Judaism if you marry a Jew?

Tom_In_Oz_: @Ishbel_Haf Not here...we have lots of Catholics married to Jewish people...they don't seem to mind.

Ishbel_Haf: @Tom_In_Oz_ Cool. Maybe George just preferrred Judaism.

Bad moon arising at the Spring Memorabilia Show

By Alison Jones on Feb 28, 11 03:47 PM

Being Human stars Russell Tovey and Sinead Keenan are to be special guests at the Spring Memorabilia Show, which takes place at NEC Birmingham, from March 26-27.

The pair, who play reluctant werewolves George and Nina in the hit BBC supernatural drama, will be hosting a Being Human panel on the Saturday of the show, as well as meeting fans and signing autographs.

Both actors have also made appearances on Doctor Who; Sinead's other TV credits include Moving Wallpaper and Silent Witness, while Russell has starred in The History Boys and Ashes To Ashes.

Other stars attending the memorabilia show include The A Team and Battlestar Galactica's Dirk Benedict, Bond beauties Britt Ekland and Honor Blackman and sportsmen Joe Calzaghe, Ossie Ardiles and Andy Cole.

George: Just, just, just look normal. LOOK NORMAL! BE NORMAL!

It’s amazing! You’re a couple! We’re going to be a family. It’s like a Rubik’s cube all coming together! High-five! 3x04.

sobrightanddelicate:  so much love for this.

You can take me if  you want…
starlightandcrimescenes:   “I may not be a gentleman, but I am a man.”  I rewatched Little Dorrit over the last few days and am trying to resist the temptation to make gifs out of this entire scene. Russel Tovey is utterly incredible. I feel like he should have been given a large cigar, an Oscar and a lifetimes’ supply of Nutella for it.
