Toby Whithouse: ‘Being Human’ location change ‘reinvigorated’ show

Being Human writer and creator Toby Whithouse has claimed that moving location from Bristol to Wales has “really reinvigorated” the show.

When the third series begins on BBC Three at the end of January, werewolf couple George (Russell Tovey) and Nina (Sinead Keenan) and reformed vampire Mitchell (Aidan Turner) have fled their beloved shared house in Bristol and are looking for a new house to rent in Barry, Wales. They are also without ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow), who is stuck in purgatory and desperately trying to escape.

“Our concern was that moving from Bristol and losing the iconic pink house would be detrimental to the show but, actually, we found that it really reinvigorated it,” says Whithouse, speaking to the BBC Press Office. “It allowed us to kick off the series with a fresh start and with a renewed energy and provided us with heaps more material than we imagined.”
