Phil Davis Joins Being Human Cast
Davis as Lucius Petrus Dextus in 2008 Doctor Who episode "The Fires Of Pompeii".
Being Human‘s back for a fifth series on BBC Three next year and Auntie has just announced that Phil Davis (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Silk, Whitechapel, Alien 3, loads more) will cross paths with the supernatural flatmates.
He’ll play Captain Hatch, a character the Beeb describes thus: “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.”
Davis says of the role: “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.”
