Becoming Human for BBC Three

Being Human’s exclusive online extension drama “Becoming Human” is to be transmitted on BBC Three, simultaneously revealing the final part of the mystery to online fans and BBC Three viewers the BBC  have announced this afternoon.

Sarah Clay, BBC Multiplatform Drama Commissioner, says: “The reaction from the fans has been brilliant. We commissioned it as a treat for the online fans and they’ve totally got into the spirit of it – analysing daily clues, coming up with theories… One of the biggest pieces of feedback we’ve had is that they can’t get enough of it and want longer episodes. So we hope they’ll be excited to hear that the whole of Becoming Human will be shown as one long episode on BBC Three. With the added twist that the final part of the puzzle showing how Matt died will be revealed on TV and online at the same time.”

Becoming Human is BBC Three’s most successful multiplatform commission with over 1.5 million views on the red button and online to date, the BBC Three version will be a 50-minute special produced from the eight online episodes.

Toby Whithouse, series creator says: “We were delighted when Becoming Human found such a loyal and enthusiastic audience online. The reaction was beyond our most optimistic dreams. And so for the BBC to give us this opportunity to share the show with a wider audience is fantastic news.”

Becoming Human will air on Sunday 20th March at 9pm on BBC Three, a week after the Being Human finale.
