Being Human series 5 cast announcement!

Sherlock and Doctor Who’s Phil Davis will join Being Human as Captain Hatch.

Being Human will return for its fifth series, and joining the cast is Phil Davis (Silk, Sherlock, Doctor Who). Davis will join Michael Socha (Tom) and Damien Molony (Hal) as Captain Hatch.

On his new role, Davis said: “I’m very excited to be joining the cast of Being Human for series 5. It’s a great show. I’ll be playing Captain Hatch. I don’t want to give too much away about the character at this early stage, but I can reveal that he is marvellously disgusting. I’m busy researching now.”

According the the BBC: “Captain Hatch has seen it all. At least he reckons he has. And whatever it is, he doesn’t much like it. Stuck in a failing body, in a wheelchair, in a dismal seaside hotel, things aren’t exactly sunny side up. Hatch embodies the worst in humanity – he’s bitter, manipulative, obsequious and cruel. Quite the catch. But those aren’t even the worst things about the aged army captain… beneath his decrepit exterior there lies within him a dark and toxic secret that could rattle your soul with fear.”
