The Daily Teaser — 11-3-2013

Hmmm … 

You know, I have to say, I’ve got the last ever episode of Being Human on, at the mo.

And have to say, I’m impressed, thus far.

It’s made for a suitable — and logical — ending to a series that’s done well for itself, over the years.

I think congratulations are in order to cast and crew: for a fantastic job well done.

And also can’t also help but wonder what they’ll all be up to next.

But let’s get moving on, shall we … ?
