Being Human Season 1 DVD Giveaway

To celebrate the July 20th release of the Being Human season 1 on DVD & Blu-ray, BBC is offering one lucky winner a copy of season 1 on DVD. For those who are unfamiliar with Being Human, here is a synopsis of the show as well as the DVD details.


Being Human is an extraordinary look into the lives of hospital porters George (Tovey) and Mitchell (Turner). Toiling anonymously in Bristol, England, they lead lives of quiet desperation under the burden of a terrible secret – Mitchell’s a vampire and George is a werewolf. Deciding to start life afresh and leave behind the dark side, they move into a house, only to find that Annie (Lenora Crichlow), the ghost of a woman killed in mysterious circumstances, haunts it. As the three deal with the challenges of their new lives together, they’re united in their desire to blend in with their human neighbors. However, with unwelcome intruders into their world, a threatened revolution from the vampire underworld, constant threats of exposure, and the day-to-day issues faced by young people – the only thing they may be able to rely on is each other.


George – Russell Tovey (Little Dorrit, Gavin & Stacey)
Mitchell – Aidan Turner (Desperate Romantics, The Clinic)
Annie – Lenora Crichlow (Sugar Rush, The Bill)
