Trivia

Toby Whithouse originally conceived the show as a drama in the vein of This Life (1996) with the three characters sharing a flat. Originally, Mitchell was a sex addict, George had anger-management problems and Annie was an agoraphobe. Whithouse added the supernatural elements later, finding what he believed to be the underworld equivalent for each character: the sex addict Mitchell became a vampire, the angry man George became a werewolf, and the agoraphobe Annie became a ghost.

Goofs

Annie's headstone changes from season 1-2. The first time she views it, it reads "beloved fiancée.." In season 2 when her mother is viewing it, it simply states her name. Unless of course her family had it changed when Owen confessed to killing her, but they never mention it. See more »

"A ghost, a werewolf and a vampire walk into a..." sounds like a bad joke, but it's all good!!
20 September 2009 | by (Southwest, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

"A ghost, a vampire and a werewolf walk into a..." Okay, I'm sure you've heard it a hundred times and it sounds like the beginning of a really bad joke but it really is the beginning to some of the best spec-fic TV you'll probably ever see. George the werewolf, Annie the ghost and Mitchell the vampire are roommates in an apartment in Bristol where they try to live a "normal" life. But they find that life after life is complex and unforgiving. And the "normal" people can be as frightening as the monsters. Dealt with allegorically in the show are addictions, clinical behavioral problems and mental illness to name a few. Well-rounded characters and oddly familiar situations tinged with the supernatural keep us eager to walk the road with the series' three protagonists. Be advised...this is not Twilight. This is grown-up TV with all the blood, sex and blue language that keeps it interesting for the post-pubescent set. The writing and acting are top-notch and each ensuing episode makes you ravenous for the next. Season II can't come soon enough.
