Being Human Cast

The housemates find themselves providing sanctuary to Tom and an injured McNair, after they are attacked by vampires as payback for their involvement in stopping the Dog Fights. Mitchell is unhappy at these unwelcome guests, taking it out on the amnesiac Herrick. Nina begins to have second thoughts about Mitchell after Annie tells her and George of Daisy’s apparent involvement in the Box Car massacre. Meanwhile, D.C. Nancy Reid is taken off the Box Car massacre case, but determines to carry on with her investigations despite her senior officer’s orders. When she pays Mitchell another visit and questions him about the scrapbook, the vampire admits that his information about Daisy may not be accurate after all. Nancy then asks to question ‘Uncle Billy’ – and Mitchell only just saves her from Herrick, as the vampire’s bloodlust finally takes over. When Nancy leaves, she takes a stolen glass marked with Mitchells fingerprints; her boss, Cooper, confirms that the prints match those of the Box Car murderer – and also prints from other crime scenes going back decades. To Nancy’s surprise Cooper then attacks her – he is a vampire, and wants to protect his own kind; however, before Cooper can turn Nancy, he is staked by Annie. Back at the house, George, Nina and Tom prepare for the imminent full moon; seeking revenge, McNair chooses to transform in front of Herrick, but the experience only succeeds in restoring Herrick’s memory, and he slaughters McNair. Having learnt of Mitchell’s guilt, Annie confronts him – just as the house is stormed by Nancy and a squad of armed police officers…
