Being Human’s Aidan Turner and Lenora Crichlow Let Loose!

First off, scope out the renovations. We wielded our sledgehammers and gutted this place over the weekend, put on several coats of paint, invited over some cool animated pals (see top right) – and voilà, we have a fit new Anglophenia that’s ready for some action. What do you think? Our brand-new face is just one of the many changes you’ll see around here in the coming weeks. Stay right here throughout the weekdays as we’ll be bringing you more hot-and-spicy updates from across the pond.

To celebrate Anglophenia’s extreme makeover, I offer you the first snippets of our Comic-Con interviews with the cast of Being Human. Today, we have two clips from my chat with Aidan Turner (Mitchell) and Lenora Crichlow (Annie). We reached out to our Facebook fans for questions, and BBCA viewer Michael Bakkala asked, “Are Aidan and Lenora Doctor Who fans?” Well, Michael: they are more than just mere fans: one of them is an actual DW alum. Check out the clip:

Also, since Being Human‘s soundtrack is such an important part of the show, I asked Aidan and Lenora what’s in heavy rotation on their iPods this summer. (There’s even a little dance that accompanies one of their songs.) Videos and links to download their favorite summer tunes can be viewed below the clip:

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
