Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
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 (Damien Molony) is a 500 year-old vampire, Tom (Michael Socha) is a hardened werewolf and Alex (Kate Bracken) 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. The mission he’s dedicated his life to is being disbanded, a casualty of austere cut-backs. Rook must find a way of justifying his role in society. In Crumb, he may have found his weapon. But Rook himself is being played, and by a force darker and more malevolent than our worst nightmares. The devil himself, captured in the decrepit old body of Captain Hatch (Phil Davis), is gathering strength.

Bobby’s been locked up in the archive for decades and is consequently more naïve and socially awkward than Tom ever was. For once, someone is in Tom’s thrall. Hal’s also entrusted with ‘sorting out’ vampire Crumb’s rampage. But when he loses faith in Crumb’s, and indeed his, ability to reform, it’s up to Alex to prove that it can be done.

This is one of the best tv programmes ever. There is a mix of humour, gore and emotions. One minute you'll be laughing so hard you nearly fall off your chair, the next minute you'll be crying.
Being Human has brilliant writting and acting. The writting is what has helped the series get a 5th series. I am gutted that this is the last series.
But I would advise everyone to buy this series.
can't believe its over
i have watched this since season one and have laughed, cried and screamed at the tv. and just when i get to love the hal and tom friendship which has become exceptionally close they stop the series, i will so miss this little mini series, just don't want it to end.
Better than ever
After the change of characters I expected this series to fail.
However the new actors have created characters that are entertaining, funny yet edgy and the writers are still on form. If this is the last season I be very sorry, as there looks to be a lot of scope yet.
Keep them coming.
