When I’ve written episodes of ‘Doctor Who’, when it comes to the monster chasing somebody, it’s the Doctor and the companion, running down the corridor, being chased by a guy with a stick and a tennis ball on the end. Whereas, when I see the rushes of ‘Being Human’, we’re actually looking at the werewolf, and it just looks real.
