This weekend, The Hollywood News are buried deep in a sea of Cos-players at Excel in East London for the first McM Comic Con of the year so far. Over the next couple of days, tens of thousands of pop culture fans will descend upon he Excel for a bank holiday weekend full of festivities.
We’ll be bringing you various coverage over the coming couple of days, kicking off with a couple of panels which we attended earlier on today. The first was the panel for Being Human, the BBC Three TV series. The panel comprised of Russell Tovey, current Poldark Aidan Turner and actress Lenora Crichlow who talked about their time on the show. All three have now departed the series, but haven’t ruled out a return, as our video clip shows. Maybe a Christmas special is in order?
Take a look.

Johnny Simmons stars as a 30-year-old sex therapist who has never gone through puberty. His world turns upside-down after the removal of a benign brain tumor.

Jamie Chung, known for playing the Disney warrior Mulan on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” is about to wield a different sword: the law. NBC picked up the hourlong drama “Miranda’s Rights,” which will follow a group of idealistic lawyers who work and live together out of their new startup firm. The pilot, cast by John Frank Levey, also includes Rebecca Breeds, Noel Fisher, Monique Coleman, and John Gabriel, and is set to shoot at the end of the month in the rainy British Columbia city of Vancouver. Stephnie Weir is moving beyond her “Mad TV” roots and into pilot season. The actor-turned-writer-producer has been attached to three pickups this season with one, “The Stephnie Weir Project,” formerly known as “Y’all in the Family,” going forward at CBS.

The British actress is best known for starring on BBC’s “Being Human.” She showed off her comedy chops two pilot seasons ago with NBC’s short-lived comedy “A to Z” on which she was a series regular, appearing in all 13 episodes.
The untitled mutli-cam CBS comedy is about a conservative small-town family that is forced to reconcile their values when they discover their children’s lives are less than perfect.
Crichlow will play Anna, a whip-smart young woman who served in Afghanistan with Billy (Zano), the golden boy of his family who gets her pregnant.

It started off as a joke, a silly fantasy twist on a generic sitcom premise, but Being Human somehow, against more odds than we remember years later, ended up becoming one of the defining British genre shows of the decade.

It was lightning in a bottle, and much of its power came from just how unexpected it was.
Back in 2009, BBC Three wasn't known for quality genre drama.
