Being Human: The Last BroadcastBookmark and Share

Tuesday, 5 March 2013 - Reported by John Bowman
The BBC Three supernatural drama Being Human draws to an end next Sunday after five series.

The final episode, fittingly entitled The Last Broadcast, has been written by show creator Toby Whithouse and directed by Daniel O'Hara. It guest-stars returnees Louis Mahoney as Leo and Ellie Kendrick as Allison, while Gordon Kennedy plays Brendan, Peter Dobbie is a newsreader and Whithouse cameos as Alistair Frith once again.

The supernatural trinity has been broken.

There is little left of Hal's humanity. Having feasted on blood and recruited an army of vampires, he's ready to return to his hedonistic and debauched days. Tom is set on revenge and has returned to his default setting – vampire killer, with one vampire in mind. Alex is trapped in a hellish prison by Captain Hatch.

Unbeknown to them all, Hatch is no longer wheelchair-bound and weak; he's regained his strength and is determined to cause as much chaos, death, and destruction as possible.

Hal, Tom, and Alex do battle with the Devil in order to save the world - but at what price to their own humanity?
Damien Molony plays Hal, Michael Socha Tom, Kate Bracken Alex, and Phil Davis Hatch.

A preview clip has been released, featuring a macabre take on the musical number Puttin' On The Ritz :

Pictures from the episode were released by the BBC today:

In addition, an extra scene - written by Sarah Dollard - following last Sunday's episode and featuring Tom and Rook (Steven Robertson) was made available online yesterday evening:

The Last Broadcast airs on BBC Three on Sunday 10th March at 10pm.
