Meet Mitchell, George and Annie. Flatmates by day – undead by night. Being Human follows three housemates as they do their best to live their lives as normally as possible despite their strange and dark secrets. But with unwelcome intruders into their world, rumblings about an impending revolution from the vampire underworld and constant threats of exposure – on top of the usual issues faced by young people surrounding love, work and mates – the only thing they may be able to rely on in their heightened world is each other.
Lovable George battles with his double identity as a mild-mannered and geeky hospital porter who for one night a month is transformed into a flesh-hungry, predatory werewolf. Mitchell is good-looking, laidback and, in contrast to George, has an easy confidence with the ladies. But he is also a blood-sucking vampire struggling with going cold-turkey from the blood he craves. Completing the flat-share trio is Annie, a talkative ghost lacking in self-confidence and desperate for company. Annie is still pining after her fiance, who she was due to marry before the fatal accident that left her with her ghostly affliction.
