Acting tips from a non-professional

camdengiles: Cramming lines into my brain before rehearsals at Waterloo today in an hour. New Writing is tricky sometimes. Especially on Sundays.

Tom_In_Oz_: @camdengiles relax...learning lines is easy delivering them I reckon is hardest of'll be OK mate.

camdengiles: @Tom_In_Oz_ you may have a point there.

Tom_In_Oz_: @camdengiles It's the act of looking like you are responding to a line for the first time and really listening to the other players too

#Being Human Day

bbcbeinghuman: It's #BeingHuman day.

Tom_In_Oz_: @bbcbeinghuman I worked it out BH DAY actually runs for 3 days around the globe by the time we all see the weekly eps..

Tom_In_Oz_: @bbcbeinghuman Next full moon on 19th will B a super moon. It will be much closer 2 earth causing calamity! Werewolves will B even worse....

S.3 finale of Being Human

Preview Clip

The Wolf-Shaped Bullet

NB. Clip contains absolutely NO Tovey goodness!


Treachery, guilt and redemption – just an ordinary day at Honolulu Heights…

It’s safe to say that Being Human will never be the same again after the events of this episode, which turn upside down everything you thought you knew about this season’s ongoing plotlines.

Quite simply the best script that Toby Whithouse has contributed to the show, it reveals all of the regular characters – including Herrick – at their most basic and fundamental levels, confirming the depth of the relationships that has underpinned this series and kept it engaging even through some weaker episodes.

Mitchell ends up being trapped by the police and help ends up coming from an unlikely and untrustworthy area. Annie looks for Lia after she returns to purgatory in her quest for answers. George has an important decision to make...?

Although the Sky Guide persists in calling this a “comedy-drama”, what little humour there is in this season finale is of the blackest nature: a couple of wry lines from Annie, and some bon mots from Herrick are about it. But the rest of the script has so many quotable lines including George’s declaration at the end of the episode which promises a very different set-up for series four.

The odd plothole prevents this from getting a perfect score, although the drive of the episode prevents them from becoming apparent until afterwards. But the production quality, the music (and the incredibly effective use of silence) and the acting are all of the highest level.
