Being Human star Lenora Crichlow certainly wasn't left holding the supernatural baby as the new series of the hit BBC3 show returned to the screens.

After Aidan Turner and Russell Tovey announced they were leaving the sci-fi drama there were fears Crichlow - the only remaining original cast member - would have her work cut out rekindling the on-screen magic she shared with them as three complex and isolated characters on the fringes of a society that hates them.

However, reactions to the new line-up and the new series, in which viewers were introduced properly to werewolf Tom (Michael Socha) whilst Mitchell (Tovey) played his final scenes, and Damien Molony, who has been drafted in to play resident vampire, Hal, were overwhelmingly positive.

Commenting on Tovey's departure The Metro said:

"In a mostly fully clad farewell, the whole werewolf transformation thing was kept pretty low-key until his fine final hour, writer Toby Whithouse leaving the door ever so slightly ajar for George to return.

SFX also praised the new lead characters:

But the character I really can't wait to see more of is Cutler, Andrew Gower's dryly humorous vampire. Tellingly, I didn't miss Mitchell for a moment."

The Independent congratulated the new look Being Human:

What did you make of the new Being Human and its new stars?
