Could someone who has purchased series one (blu-ray) confirm if this set includes the pilot episode? Supposedly there is a pilot that was aired in 2008 on BBC but the product description does not indicate this.
Yes there is a pilot ep but it is not included in either the U.S. DVD or Blu-Ray collections(I don't think it's available in the other region versions either, but I didn't do much research, as it doesn't apply to me). Being Human (BBC) has quickly become one of my favorite things ever, so I had to track down the pilot online(not terribly hard to do) but be warned, while we have our adorable George from the series, Mitchell & Annie(& Herrick, perhaps others) are played by different actors which brought some different aspects to these characters(good and bad, imho). I'd like to get an official version of the pilot just to be a completist, and I did enjoy the pilot quite a bit, but seriously missed the Mitchell & Annie I've come to love.
