Being Human

Sun Feb 17, 10pm, BBC3

By Phil Harrison
Series five, episode three
First, it was ‘Pulling’. And last week, it was announced that BBC3 had done it again and killed another of its best shows at somewhere near its peak. Depressing news, but it certainly adds an extra dimension to what is suddenly ‘Being Human’’s final series. Will anything change as the hastily decreed endgame approaches?

Tonight, Julian Barratt joins the cast as an infuriating, Partridge-esque weatherman-turned-werewolf. At first, Tom thinks he’s found a mentor. But before long, he’s having his confidence (and savings) sapped by this banal black hole of a man. Michael Socha is superb this week: funny and vulnerable by turns. But we suspect it’s Damien Molony’s Hal who will dictate the path of this series – his relationship with Dominic Rook can surely only end in tears. Here’s to ‘Being Human’ ending on a high – it deserved better than this.
