It's still a little bogged down in the grave portentous 'end of the world' prophecy gubbins, but at least it was without the Sara Connor style nonsense of the previous two weeks and firmly brought the comedy and the everyday scenarios back to the fore, which was what made Being Human so brilliant on its debut series.
Werewolf Tom is still the best of the (relative) newcomer played with a naturally comic touch by Michael Socha. I love his interesting mix of vulnerability and chivalry alongside his action packed survivor and warrior credentials.
We actually got to see more of Damien Molony's vampire Hal tonight, and discovered two things; one he's an Old One, Lord Hal in fact, and two, he has some chemistry with Socha's Tom, which is a relief and suggests that whilst the series may have jumped the shark a little, there may still be a future.
Also adding to tonight's comedy stakes (no pun intended) were Mark Williams, who I've long since held the belief is a genius when it comes to comedy, making his return as the unlikely ally Regus, The Vampire Recorder (complete with 'Team Edward' T Shirt) and Laura Patch as wannabe writer Michaela
So after a rather good episode, I'm finding favour with it once more, but I'm not as enamoured as I once was, and I can't help but think they're retreading a lot of the previous series plots and stylings (next week's trailer, in which a ghost visits and seemingly upsets the apple cart, setting our heroes at odds with one another, looks not unlike episode two of series one with Dean Lennox Kelly's werewolf, Tully)
Oh well, I'm still sticking with it at least.
And, whilst we're on the subject of vampires, I thought I'd share a couple of artworks featuring them

Artist unknown alas, but it's brilliant - Peter Cushing as Van Helsing putting paid to The Count
