Press play to see Russell Tovey and Robson Green in the latest promo for Being Human season three.

EDITORIL 11-2-2011


Recently fans world-wide were asked to contribute questions to the Being Human mastermind Toby Whithouse. More than 300 sets of multiple questions were submitted to Toby but only about 18 questions were answered which leads me to believe that following the BBC3 blog is becoming a BIG waste of my time…

The BBC3 team have been expending their time publicizing their new on-line show Becoming Human which you can NOT see outside the UK because of copyright blocks at the BBC. The fans have to wait for a low grade copy to appear on YouTube – usually in my case found and distributed by my friend Ewan. Meanwhile attention is diverted from their regular show Being Human which has had less weekly focus than in previous years. The long term Being Human fans are a little bewildered at this change.

For us outside the UK I might add I don’t think we get any kind of consideration by the BBC when it comes to numerous issues and the questions asked of Toby Whithouse are an example, the answers were mostly back to long term fans that live in the UK and that can easily attend conferences and events to see and hear the stars of the show in person.

The following list of people were lucky enough to have a reply; some also contribute to the Tovey blog: AllieMunster, joooos, FlyingMonkeys, tom (which is not me BTW), Ewan, Dorina, [These people all asked the same question: Sarah; VampGhostFan; superawesomeme; Jac_E and Lee T], RetroAmour, Fitzov. WorldsGayestNinja, aquamarine_jo, Snowracer_247, HAz152, DJ2JD and Alanna.

I asked Toby the following:

Is there any chance you could do one hour specials between the main shows...I would love to see Mr & Mrs Sands (George & Nina) on Hols in Oz, New York or Hawaii...concept of werewolves abroad...

Can we have specials for Xmas or Halloween...stand alone Eps? Or like in the USA where we get 2 shows that share a cross over plot line...

When doing the DVDs can we have cast and crew commentaries?

The Tattoo on George's leg that wasn't there for Seasons 1 and 2...did you think hard about continuity issues...I hate things like that cropping brain hurts thinking about the small stuff at times!

On a lighter side (he he) the big criticism I had of season 2 was that the same 4 fluoro light tubes were used over and the point where I'd have a drink of scotch every time I saw one in the background...most eps I was drunk! *an observation not a question*

I have been to the BH house in Barry and the scale size of your sets are too big...the Fry's house in Barry is larger on the's like the TARDIS in Dr Who.

There are 700 more questions but this is enough for now...and if I get a reply to any of them I'd be very surprised but I live in hope...honestly I do!

Tom in Oz


At least one of the contributors saw my cry of anguish and gave me a virtual hug!

Being Human Bloggers

Dorina335: @Tom_In_Oz_ well..he only answered my silly Q!...but I enjoyed reading his replies to others.@bbcbeinghuman

aquamarine_jo: THRILLED that Toby W answered my question on the #beinghuman blog! Wish I had the nerve to ask if he’s read my book...

FoxyLorri64: @Tom_In_Oz_ @bbcbeinghuman i understand where you are coming from Tom...keep up your great work as I am sure you are truely appreciated x

Beth_Annie_: @Tom_In_Oz_ I saw, it is a bit daft the blog doesn't work outside the uk. There are so many fans outside the uk, it doesn't make sense

FoxyLorri64: @Tom_In_Oz_ @Dorina335 @bbcbeinghuman We are just sensitive people Tom, I often see certain names mentioned more than others

WDMDLD: @Tom_In_Oz_ sorry to hear you're giving up on the BH blog :(. I feel your frustration at not getting to see the vides. Thank God for Ewan & the others who post links for us not in the UK :), but there is a lot more to the blog than just the vides. There is talking to the other fans, getting updates, & lots of speculation fun for starters. There is so much going on right now I haven't been able to keep up with it all & have hardly posted because of lack of time ;(. Thinking of lack of conversing with people. I don't think I sent you my condolences about your recent loss. Sorry about your dog, how are you doing?

Dodochicky: @Tom_In_Oz_ *comforting hugz* At least she didn't suffer too much. I'm not too bad thanks, in work and achy but all in all, ok. :D

MathewParry: @Tom_in_Oz_ Sorry to hear about your lovely dog. It's so sad when animals go. That's why I don't have any. Can't bear the grief.

marcuswhitney1: @Tom_In_Oz_ not sure yet, hoping to!

Tom_In_Oz_: @marcuswhitney1 Mrs Oz and I are having a quiet meal out and I've got roses arriving by courier...nice but not spectacular...
