Eyecandy Monday: Mitchell the vampire

I know: I've said over and over that vampires really don't do that much for me. I don't like vampires. I don't like vampires. But ye gods and little fishes I DO LIKE this vampire!!! Bite me! Bite me please!


This is Mitchell (described by one bitter character as "your friend. You know: the one with the face."), played by Aidan Turner. He's Irish. He's trying to give up the whole killing people thing. He appears in the new BBC3 series Being Human, which is about a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf living together in a house in Bristol. I know that sounds like a really bad Rentaghost-style sitcom, but although it's wittily and sharply written it's also pretty dark with a fair amount of blood, the deaths of innocents, and a nasty vampire conspiracy to take over the world.


Here's a look at Mitchell's character in action:



What a shame the series is languishing almost unseen on BBC3 when drek like Demons gets plastered all over primetime terrestial. There is no justice.


But if you go to the official Being Human website here, not only can you find out more but you can also watch all the aired episodes on your PC. Hoorah for public service broadcasting!

I share your lack of interest in vampires, so I haven't seen any of this. My mistake, by the look of it - he fine!

He very fine! Especially when the bloodlust is on him: he goes very intense...

Bite me! And I mean that in the nicest way.

I am officially in love with Mitchell. Have been since the Pilot, but he's a lot more... erm... biteable played by Aidan. Yum!

Yeah Rhi - I'm glad they made the change! I probably wouldn't have watched it but for the New Mitchell, and that would have been a pity.
