With the new series of Being Human due to start early next year, T4 decided it was time to interview Kate Bracken, Damien Molony and Michael Socha yesterday morning.
The interview was pretty short and I got the impression myself that the presenters didn't even know what the show was actually about but the main cast were fair game in explaining the basic premise of the series while letting us know that Julian Barrett will be guest starring in the series as well as answering questions that revealed that each actor had more in common with different supernatural types, compared to the ones they're known for onscreen. Could you imagine Kate as a werewolf or Damien and Michael as ghosts? Now you can.
Of course during the four minute segment, we did at least get one exclusive clip from the first episode of Series 5. In the clip Hal is still bound to the chair, being spoon fed by Tom and getting into a
panic because the B&B is messy. He even asks Tom to blindfold him
at one point because of the mess and he's sporting some facial hair.
Alex meanwhile quips about her brothers being messy, perving on the
Wales team and both her and Tom talk about her finding her door. A brief but entertaining little scene.
I was going to do another blog, but I figured editing this one would just suffice. Sci-Fi Now magazine have published some more spoilers about the new series and it seems that both Tom and Hal will get jobs working in the Barry Grande where villain Captain Hatch is residing. It also seems that Mr Rook will be both an ally and an enemy to the gang in the upcoming fifth series as well.
Also CultBox has managed to post a synopsis for the first episode of the fifth series as well ...
"Hal, Tom and Alex are three housemates with some serious issues on
their hands, and they’re not all about the washing up rota. Hal is a 500
year-old vampire, Tom is a hardened werewolf and Alex has recently had
the misfortune of becoming a ghost.
"Strapped to a chair in the living room, Hal is finding it tough going
cold-turkey – mostly because the mess Tom has made is really bothering
him. But when Tom and Alex release Hal, they’re not to know it’s far too
soon to be letting a blood-thirsty vampire onto the streets...
"When Hal recruits Crumb as a vampire and welcomes him to the
supernatural world, the meek becomes mighty and we see what happens when
a bullied man finds his bite. Meanwhile, Rook – head of a shady
government department in charge of keeping the supernatural world secret
– is given some devastating news."
