Becoming Human, the online extension drama of Being Human will be shown as a unique 50-minute special of the eight-part online series on Sunday 20 March at 9pm on BBC3. Transmitted after the Being Human finale, it will simultaneously reveal the final part of the mystery to online fans and BBC Three viewers.
Becoming Human is BBC Three's most successful multiplatform commission with over 1.5 million views on the BBC Red Button and online to date. It stars Craig Roberts as Adam, Leila Mimmack as Christa and Josh Brown as Matt.

With the added twist that the final part of the puzzle showing how Matt died will be revealed on TV and online at the same time."
