An angel, a vampire and a werewolf
I started watching a great TV show called Being Human (the original U.K. version, not the U.S. remake) about an angel, a vampire and a werewolf! It sounds a bit silly, but the writing and acting is really good. It aired in the U.K. starting in 2009 and was a big hit. I’m watching it on Amazon Prime video.
Aidan Turner from Poldark
If you are watching and loving Poldark (and you should be!) on BBC Masterpiece Theatre, you’ll recognize heart throb Aidan Turner. Aidan plays the brooding vampire – fits him perfectly! He feels guilty about having to feed, i.e. kill other people by sucking their blood. He comes up with various fixes for this. The werewolf is a normal guy most of the month. He only changes during the full moon, when he locks himself in a room so as not to harm anyone. The angel, Annie, is played brilliantly by a talented actress – the gossip is that she started dating Aidan while filming, and when they broke up about 2 years later he quit the show. It looks like he is in all of Season 1 and Season 2 but only in a few of the Season 3 episodes 😦 The angel character is very interesting and I think whoever wrote the show has an interest in spirituality. She learns that she is earthbound because of something traumatic regarding her death (I won’t spoil it for you). This is the true reason that ghosts are here. If they were not traumatized, they could ascend into the light/heaven.
