The BBC has now confirmed when Series 5 of Being Human will start.
After initially putting it as an unscheduled programme in the week beginning Saturday 2nd February then changing its mind, it has done a U-turn, announcing today that the first episode of the new series of the comedy-drama will air on BBC Three on Sunday 3rd February.
The episode will be broadcast at 10pm. This series will consist of six episodes - the first time the show has been that short since its first series. Series 2 to 4 have each been eight episodes long.
