Being Human

Series 5 - 2. Sticks and Rope

Radio Times
Review by:
Gill Crawford

Hal and Tom reveal a somewhat messy taste for healthy competition in the workplace. Their rivalry is exploited by the noxious Captain Hatch – Phil Davis, who makes one speech sure to send shivers down your spine – who’s craftily twisting the knife. Stuck at home, Alex realises she’s not alone, but has her time to pass over come already? And Mr Rook takes advantage of the sorry Crumb to influence the Home Secretary (Toby Whithouse doing a Hitchcock). A dark episode with a neat touch of hysteria that outlines the coming threat to our heroes’ future.

About this programme

2/6. Tom and Hal both try to claim the title of the Barry Grand Hotel's Employee of the Month. However, as the competition heats up, odious resident Captain Hatch seems to feed on their conflict. Meanwhile, mysterious man in grey Mr Rook hatches a scheme to save his department, making use of enthusiastic new vampire Crumb, and Alex discovers she is not the only ghost roaming the halls of Honolulu Heights. Supernatural comedy drama, starring Damien Molony, Michael Socha and Kate Bracken.
