Creator Toby Whithouse‘s series followed supernaturals doing their best to continue Being Human. We find a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf, all living together in one flat, trying to hold onto normalcy in spite of their “afflictions.” Since Being Human ended, Whithouse has created the BBC AMERICA series The Game and has written Doctor Who episodes for season nine. But what has the talented cast been up to? Let’s check in on them:
