Trivia

According to Aidan Turner in a BBC3 question-and-answer session, Mitchell's fingerless gloves were more necessity than fashion statement due to the freezing set temperatures filming in wintertime Bristol. See more »

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 breath of new (after)life.
2 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I expected to hate this, yet it turns out I loved it. Great first series. Can't wait for the next one. The characters were interesting and funny, and dare I say it, you actually begin to care about them, (which is the cornerstone of any good drama). This took a tired genre and gave it a breath of new (after)life. The backdrop is very ordinary and mundane, and the characters are self-loathing. It gave it a different, quirky angle which hasn't really been explored before. I really hope the BBC have the next series lined up and ready to film. UK series are always woefully small. You just got me interested, and now I've got to wait for the next episode. Best character by far is George the dorky werewolf, who I suspect has unwittingly shacked up with a she-wolf. Mitchell is good as an on-the-wagon blood junkie. The bad guys were all nasty and loathsome, which was great. The first episode was slow, but stick with it!
