Being Human: Whithouse on Series 5
Despite the recent BBC3 cancellations and cutbacks on drama, Being Human creator Toby Whithouse said he is fairly confident that the show will return for a fifth series.
“I think every corner of the entertainment industry is going to feel the constraints of this now, and the cutbacks are going to start to bite everyone soon,” he told SFX. “But I think we have an advantage in a way in that our show has always been about character, and character is free. If you were a show that relied on a heavy CGI budget and so consequently didn’t necessarily pay that much attention to character, then I think you’d be in trouble.
“But I’m relatively confident about the future of Being Human because, as I say, our show is about characters, and that can be done on pretty much any budget.”
Being Human returns this Sunday at 9pm on BBC3.
