Being Human Trivia
Annie appears in the clothes she was wearing when she died which change subtly depending on her state of mind.
According to Aidan Turner in a BBC3 question-and-answer session, Mitchell’s fingerless gloves were more necessity than fashion statement due to the freezing set temperatures filming in wintertime Bristol.
Annie’s eyes are normally brown but they turn blue when she is visible to humans and turn violet when she is haunting.
Toby Whithouse originally conceived the show as a drama in the vein of “This Life” (1996) with the three characters sharing a flat. Originally, Mitchell was a sex addict, George had anger-management problems and Annie was an agoraphobe. Whithouse added the supernatural elements later, finding what he believed to be the underworld equivalent for each character: the sex addict Mitchell became a vampire, the angry man George became a werewolf, and the agoraphobe Annie became a ghost.
Aidan Turner is the only one of the main cast members not to have appeared on “Doctor Who” (2005). Russell Tovey (George) played Alonso Frame in “Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned (#4.0)” (2007), Lenora Crichlow (Annie) played Cheen in “Doctor Who: Gridlock (#3.3)” (2007), and Sinead Keenan (Nina) played Addams in “Doctor Who: The End of Time: Part One” (2009) and “Doctor Who: The End of Time: Part Two” (2010). Additionally, Donald Sumpter who plays Kemp in Season 2, has appeared in the original “Doctor Who” (1963) serials The Wheel in Space (Episodes 1-6) and The Sea Devils (Episodes 3-5).
