Who’s Human?

Being Human producer Matthew Bouch has dismissed suggestions that the popular supernatural comedy drama could be part of a Doctor Who crossover.

This is particularly good news – both are very different series, sharing only writers and some cast members – and Bouch himself is clear as to why it won’t happen.

Doctor Who exists in [its own] world, in that the world knows about the existence of aliens [and] they get invaded every Christmas. So that’s a very different world. Being Human is much more rooted in our world. So I don’t think it could happen,” he said.

Doctor Who fans will know that Being Human creator Toby Whithouse has contributed two scripts – 2006′s School Reunion and 2010′s Vampires of Venice.

Being Human has also had a number of guest cast appear in Doctor Who, while two of the stars have also appeared since 2005. Russell Tovey is well known to Doctor Who fans as Alonso Frame from Voyage of the Damned and The End of Time, Part 2, while lovely Lenora Crichlow appeared in 2007′s Gridlock.

    Whoever suggested a crossover clearly understands neither show. Very silly. I just can’t get into Being Human at all – mainly because I don’t like the characters very much, and find the whole thing rather tedious. The pilot episode was quite good though.

    always run into problems when trying to do a crossover with two shows like that which have their own rules about their sci fi/fantasy possibilities.
