'Being Human': Ten teasers about 'Sticks and Rope' + Preview Clip

Being Human's fifth series continues this Sunday night with another fantastic instalment - if anything, 'Sticks and Rope' tops last week's premiere for laughs, high emotion and scares!

Alex (Kate Bracken) is forced to serve as babysitter to child ghost Oliver (Benjamin Greaves-Neal) - a role that leads her down a dark and dangerous path - while Hal (Damien Molony) and Tom (Michael Socha) compete to become manager of the Barry Grand hotel, but their friendly rivalry could end in tragedy if Captain Hatch (Phil Davis) gets his way...

Being Human continues on BBC Three this Sunday (February 10) at 10pm.

1. "This is why the world is going to hell in a hand-cart!"

2. Captain Hatch has Alex in his his dark and devilish sights...

3. "Do not even get me started on the racism!"

4. Alex is a fan of Dick Van Dyke's daytime crime drama classic Diagnosis Murder.

5. "You two are so getting a slap!"

6. At one point, Tom does an impression of Hal - and it's amazing.

7. "Everybody likes a party - it's the f**king law!"

8. Alex's oft-mentioned brothers finally put in an appearance.

9. "It's like you've got a poker stuck up your bum."

RIP my sweet childish prince </3

Yeah. I think it would have been good to just keep him around. Maybe we'll see him in flashbacks. =(

I'm loving this season so far, I hope it isn't the last one.
I am also loving Alex which is a relief because I wasn't too keen on her last season.
More topless Hal/ Hal in a uniform with his had behind his back pls
and more Alex and Tom acting like brother and sister

It's been made official that this is the last season. And I just got into it! Ugh, hate everything. D:

and Hal's abs.

I need to catch up on this show, I'm still on series 2.

That girl looks like Rachel McAdams' cuter little sister.

Alex is totally right about kissing random celebrities as a ghost.

Putting it on my haunting list.

And sneaking into Disney World.

klmnumbers 6th-Feb-2013 11:01 pm (UTC)
Yesssssss the world needs more Hal and Tom stans. THEY ARE ADORABLE.
xxxquothxxx 6th-Feb-2013 11:03 pm (UTC)
Just up to episode 5 with Adam. Hal singing while washing the dishes kill me now the sweet heart. People need to start watching s4 it's so much better than I was expecting
klmnumbers 6th-Feb-2013 11:04 pm (UTC)
yeah I didn't watch series 4 for the longest time because the end of series 3 just broke me so much. I finally gave in and watched it in like December, and just LOVED IT. I've rewatched it several times already.
jordanabevan 6th-Feb-2013 07:43 pm (UTC)
lmao light to moderate revenge

alex is already infinitely better this series but i hope they don't go down the romance route with her and hal
have they learned nothing from mitchell/annie

Can't wait for Tom's impression

I liked the premiere. The devil storyline is either going to being very underwhelming or okay. I don't see an amazing ending regarding that. I kind of like the idea but it's a very tricky area to execute properly.

I like Alex and her hair.

Well, Diagnosis Murder is one of the greatest things ever to exist.
thelackoflight 6th-Feb-2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
Phil Davis is brilliant but I don't really care about the big overarching storyline with the devil. I just want the trio being cute together.

I really liked Hal's dynamic with the female werewolf leader. Wish we could see more of that.
klmnumbers 6th-Feb-2013 10:59 pm (UTC)
I love this show so much. It's changed so much since series 1, but it was so gradual that it worked unbelievably well. I loved evil/sassy Hal in flashbacks so much. I'm super excited for this season.
shadowpiranha 6th-Feb-2013 11:19 pm (UTC)
I still love it and it still makes me tear up, like when Alex had the breakdown about being dead and really really not wanting to be. Also I don't think I found Hal as hot last series as I did last episode.

Also the devil. And Tom is a sweetie as usual and I love Alex - especially her accent.
