We had mixed feelings about the fourth season of BBC Three’s “Being Human” since it was such a departure from prior seasons, but we’re still anxious to see what Tom, Hal, and Alex will be facing in Series 5. The first word of a new villain has come; read on for details!
Per the “Being Human” blog, the inside scoop from the show’s writers paints a pretty evil picture:
“Captain Hatch has seen it all, at least he reckons he has, and whatever it is, he doesn’t much like it. Stuck in a failing body, in a wheelchair, in a dismal seaside hotel, things aren’t exactly sunny side up. Hatch embodies the worst in humanity – he’s bitter, manipulative, obsequious, and cruel. And beneath his decrepit exterior there lies within him a dark and toxic secret that could rattle your soul with fear.”
And who might be playing Captain Hatch? None other than BAFTA-nominated actor Phil Davis (pictured above), who has also appeared in other BBC dramas like “Bleak House,” “Sherlock,” and “Merlin” and weighed in with his own remarks about his new role:
“I don’t want to give too much away about the character at this early stage, but I can reveal that he is marvelously disgusting.”
Davis joins new series regulars Michael Socha (werewolf Tom), Damien Molony (vampire Hal), and Kate Bracken (ghost Alex). Shooting of Series 5 is scheduled to begin in “late summer” with producer Phil Trethowan moving into the role of Executive Producer, and it should be “bigger, better, bolder, braver, and definitely more terrifying that anything that has come before… Season 5 is promising to deliver all the laughs and fun of Season 4 but with a very definitely new and nasty, chilling edge.”
Look for more soon!
