Storyline

George Sands, a young porter at a Bristol hospital, has an unenviable secret. Some years ago he was attacked by a pack of werewolves and is now one himself. His friend and co-worker John Mitchell, whilst he looks very young, is a centuries old vampire, though he is trying to resist his blood lust, placing him at odds with the vampire leader Herrick. The pair rent a house and are surprised to find a third occupant whom only they can see - Annie, a young woman who died after falling downstairs in the house and is now a ghost.

Trivia

George's werewolf origin story is nearly identical to that of David Kessler's in An American Werewolf in London (1981). Both are attacked while running with another man, who is mauled and killed. Both George and David are then saved by villagers shooting the wolf, and ultimately wake up in a hospital. See more »

One of the best dramas to come from the BBC in a long time!
21 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't even planning to watch this, I hadn't even heard of it. I had been watching Torchwood, which is rubbish by the way, and I saw an advert for Being Human while the credits rolled. I though this sounded interesting, so I decided to watch it.

By the time it had finished, I was completely won over. In just one episode, I felt more for for Mitchell and Co than I do for the entire Torchwood team put together. This is funny, smart, dramatic and very very good.

You may ask why I compare Being Human to Torchwood. The reason is this, Torchwood is meant to be one of the leading BBC shows but, for me, it's to up-it's-own-ass to be any good. Being Human has taught Torchwood a thing or two and I sincerely hope they make more.
