However this is proving difficult since her parents, as part of their marriage counselling ‘homework’, surprise her with a pre-university shopping trip in an attempt to bond the family.

Meanwhile Jamie, hurt that Laura’s isn’t taking him seriously, decides to propose. If he’s seen to do ‘the right thing’, she can’t ignore him, right? Mike’s all for the plan, but Beth’s dead against it.

All Jamie needs to do now is find a suitable engagement ring and the right moment to propose. That moment is more eventful that he’d hoped and Laura’s decision becomes harder and harder to make.

Annie, Hal and Tom are like a ring of steel protecting baby Eve – so when Kirby, a ghost from the 1970s calls at the house, they’re immediately suspicious.

Ep 3/6

9:00pm Sunday 5 February on BBC THREE

Being Human, BBC Three’s award winning and critically-acclaimed drama, returns for a fourth series. Following the gripping series three finale in which viewers watched Mitchell fall victim to the wolf-shaped bullet, series four sees the aftermath as the housemates return to their home in Barry Island. There are also some new faces in town…

In an old B&B in a sleepy seaside town, we join Annie, her housemate George and their new friend. They’re reeling from the loss of their best friend Mitchell, Tom’s father-figure McNair and the tragic departure of George’s girlfriend, Nina. But with a newborn baby to look after, it’s never been more difficult to live life under-the-radar as a ghost and two werewolves.

There are also the vampires to deal with: lurking in every corner of society, waiting for the Old Ones to arrive and take over the world with brutal force. Can they fight them off? And at what cost? One thing becomes clear – the vampires believe that the child of two werewolves is important in their own mythology. Can this little baby really be the saviour of humanity? And what exactly are Cutler’s ‘alternative’ plans for world domination?

The Crusades/Victory in the East

In the concluding episode of BBC Two’s compelling three-part series The Crusades, Dr Thomas Asbridge reveals that the holy wars were not decided on the hallowed ground of Jerusalem, but in Egypt.

As trade blossomed between Christians and Muslims and the Mongol hordes arrived from Asia, a saintly French king – afire with crusading zeal – and the most remarkable Muslim leader of the Middle Ages fought for ultimate victory in the East.

Drawing upon eyewitness chronicles and the latest archaeological evidence, Dr Asbridge argues that it was a fearsome slave-warrior from the Russian Steppes – now forgotten in the West – who finally sealed the fate of the crusades. And, most controversially of all, Asbridge challenges the popular misconception that the medieval crusades sparked a clash of civilisations between Islam and the West that continues to this day.

Over in A&E, Amieth is trying to adjust to the relentless pace of the department. He soon realises that not all patients need medical intervention, when he encounters a homeless person who just seems to want some company…
