For Aleks, and anyone else who might enjoy a dark comedy drama pilot about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost flatsharing. Simon and I watched this on Monday night and it was brilliant. I hope they get a full series.

Being Human

24 Feb 2008 22:00-23:00 BBC Three
25 Feb 2008 01:45-02:40 BBC Three

Contemporary supernatural drama about George and Mitchell, a pair of perennial outsiders. Working in the anonymous drudgery of the local hospital, they live lives of quiet desperation - because Mitchell is a vampire and George is a werewolf. Deciding to turn over a new leaf, they move into a house together, only to find that it is haunted by Annie, the ghost of a woman killed in mysterious circumstances. As a threesome, they deal with the challenges of being supernatural creatures, bonded by their desire to adopt the lifestyle of their neighbours - humanity.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Simon is the victim of body snatching aliens. A strange race that exists only to clean and tidy. But I'm not complaining.

I put away the Christmas decorations and tidied and hoovered the lounge. Meanwhile "Simon" has completely reorganised and cleaned his kitchen and is now working his way through the flat cleaning walls and radiators and even skirting boards.

I do hope the real Simon is being cared for properly.

I took down the tinsel and fairy lights from the fireplace and tidied it up a bit before putting up the non-Christmas fairy lights that Simon bought in Habitat ages ago now. We had them on the tree briefly but they did this weird flickering thing on the black background so that didn't last long. They still split from purple into red/blue if I look at them at the wrong angle through my glasses, but they're much better against white.

We went to see the latest Harry Potter film last night, which was very good. I thought Cedric was more prominent in the film than I'd felt he was in the book so the ending had more impact.

At home afterwards we finally watched Constantine, which I picked up on DVD in Sainsbury's the other day for £6. It was ok as long as I kept telling myself it wasn't really Hellblazer, but I wasn't overly impressed.

We were going to see King Kong tonight but I've discovered Iain Banks is on Celebrity Mastermind on BBC1 at 7pm (thanks /mel/) and Ken Stott is Inspector Rebus at 9pm on ITV1, so it'll have to wait. I still have last week's Lost to watch too. Anyway, "Simon" is still on a roll so it would be a shame to stop him cleaning now...

Ooh. I've had this on and off my wish list a few times, but it's on tv tonight! I shall have to make sure that I'm back from Christmas shopping in time to watch it.

Walking With Monsters
Thu 8 Dec, BBC1 8:30 pm - 9:00 pm 30mins

The first in a three-part series telling the extraordinary story of evolution as it has never been seen before. This week we witness the explosive creation of our earth 4.4 billion years ago. As we witness first life evolving in the oceans, we meet our bizarre earliest ancestors who battle against terrifying three-metre-long sea scorpions and giant carnivorous fish as big as a truck. Their ability to survive will determine the shape of life on our planet and whether we humans will exist at all. But as our huge early amphibian ancestors finally struggle onto land, the monsters they face are more deadly than ever.

In other stuff, people who buy things for themselves in December are very annoying and should not do it.
